Just in time...

I got to school early today, hoping to have some time to look over my lesson plan and check my e-mail! Unfortunately, I got here just in time to break up a fight between a 4th grade boy and a 6th grade girl! (As a side note, the idea of "boys shouldn't hit girls" doesn't really exist in Korea! It's more of a free for all!) Anyway, their classmates were all standing outside the door to the classroom while the 2 of them went at it inside. "Miss Alexis, Help!" was the first thing I heard when I turned the corner to my hallway... I threw my stuff down and entered the firing zone!!

I softly yelled, "Ya! Ya!" which means, "Hey!" then I separated them and made them sit on their knees with their hands in the air! I apparently didn't get there fast enough because the girl had a fresh black eye! She probably deserved it! She's a real B! I stared them down for about 2 minutes, as tears rushed down their cheeks! (No Korean student wants their teacher to stare them down.) Once I felt like I had adequately embarrassed them infront of their classmates, I sent them back to their classrooms, and that was the end of it!
No principals office, no detention, just a simple stare from me is enough punishment for them!
