>>I had one of the most obnoxious students 2 years ago who tried to yank my chain every chance he got. H would drag others into the fray just to see if he could provoke me into kicking him and others out of class. They would skip out and the admin. would come to me.
>>It was all my fault. I did a sculpture project with bonded sand for a final piece with those art foundations classes. The weather was beautiful so we could carve outside avoiding the wrath of the janitorial staff by having sand all over. (This was before Columbine when we could still take students outside). I can't tell you onlist what this scum bag carved but I think you get the idea. When all was over I cleaned out the remaining leftovers. His was amongst them. I went to a field and fired that sculpture as far as I could yelling his name as I did so. It gave all a big laugh and diffused my anger and stress for the rest of the semester. It was cathartic.
