Room 1()" Wednesday, June 5, 2002. The Malakoff News - PAGE 3 Horoscolae By Emily G. Lundy Most teachers have the innate knowledge of never making friends or buddies out of stu- dents. The practice is uncool, even dangerous. Teachers are supposed to be adults. If a friendship follows after gradu- ation, wonderful. I've really liked some senior students I taught, and they have returned to see me a few times. ' But students are students, and teachers are teachers. This is not covered in any education course I ever took: When my then in his twenties, heard the sordid tale that occurred at the school building, he said, "I bet those girls threw themselves at that coach." "Don't care, Bubba. The coach vS married, and he was the only adult in the situation. If you don't know that, don't teach." Students were always, how- ever, welcome at our home be- cause our children were in classes with them. We often had a guest for dinner. Once such an extr a turned to my older husband first taught in junior son who evidently had warned high, young girls rrmde him the subject of a fan club and asked him to sign their hands. Whether he did or not, I don't know, but he was highly embar- rassed. So was a younger son who substitute taught in the middle grades when feet sur- gery kept him out of college a few months to be closer to the surgeon. "The girls ask me to open their canned drinks," he said. "I don't know what to do." "Nothing" with a business-like manner is the answer along with filing the memorY for old age. Teaching at the secondary level for 34 years, I heard some wild: and raunchy tales about students, teachers, and some . were true. Sometime the teacher involved was gone by the next day; other times inac- tion took months, but the teacher eventually lost his/her license in education. One really bad scene involved a coach and two sophomore girls. When this younger son, him of my cooking and said, "Why, this ain't half bad!" The weirdest situation was in 1988 when one child and his buddies enrolled in a college English class while taking my English class in high school. This was the year my back in- jury occurred. As soon as I could after reaching home, I changed clothing, put a long covered back piece (someone lent me) on the floor, plugged it in to heat it up or make it vi- brate, then lay half on it with my knees bent and at an angle that let me watch television. Every evening I wondered if I would be able to go to work the next day to finish out the yeag (I did for two and'three-fourths more years before having sur- gery.) Meanwhile, my son and his friends sat at our dining table writing their college essays. One by one I would receive a composition to re,,, as I tried dying on the floor and edit or make remarks about the effort. 00Yester Yea By Carva Robertkon Beidler June 7, 1928 Burglars stole money, clothes and gasoline Sunday night.
