Oops! In rereading my last memo, I see I wrote “there” instead of “their”. One of my own pet peeves. Sorry. I really do know the difference.

I now understand that she knew of the rules and broke it knowingly. In any case I will have a discussion on following rules and Like you mentioned - telling the truth in general and also telling the truth the first time. thanks again and have a nice weekend Brandon

P. S. If any students were eating in the classroom, I would ask them what was in there mouth not only for the sake of gum, but because I also monitor what foods are out in the classroom because of Baili. So me asking what is in someone’s mouth actually does happen a lot. Sometimes it may be gum, but many times it is “nothing” or someone is sneaking part of their lunch or something. So I carefully monitor whenever a student looks as if they have something in their mouth.

My only question is although you said it was against school rules and it is most likely in the handbook, did she know this rule, did you tell her this rule when you first saw her? This is going to be my discussion later, because knowing and breaking a rule is different that unknowingly doing so.


Mr. Jennings,


I just wanted to tell you what happened this morning. Baili came in and looked as if she was chewing gum (which is against the school rules). I asked her what was in her mouth. If she told me gum I would have reminded her of the school rule and told her to spit it out. But she said nothing. Then I gave her another chance and I said, Are you sure? She said yes. So I let it go.


Then, about 20 minutes later, I saw her chewing again and I said in a stern voice, Are you chewing gum?!?! She then told me yes. I had her spit it out and told her that I was very disappointed that she had lied to me the first time. So I am telling you.


I try to be very fair with my students and give them every chance. I understand that people make mistakes and forget the rules but I discourage lying to me about it. This is because I dont want to waste class time trying to be a detective and figuring out what is going on.


I know this may seem like a big deal since I am writing such a long email message but I like to give lots of details when I write to a parent. She is not is any real trouble. I just ask that you encourage her to always tell me the truth the first time.


Thank you,
