One of our students is a senior in private school, however he is an overachiever.
She gets straight A’s, is a cheerleader, plus is in several clubs, as a teacher I have l received that even the best behaved, most well rounded students often have moments where they rebel or supply into peer pressure, i did an interest in class with our students where they needed to take out their cell cellphones to participate in an interactive quiz; The quiz was on the topic of drugs, including recreational marijuana.
I observed our student did not take his cellphone out. I asked his about it plus he said his Mom took his cellphone away. I pulled his aside after class to check in with her. She admitted to me that he got caught using recreational marijuana plus his mother grounded her! His punishment for using recreational marijuana included losing cellphone privileges, having to take drug tests for recreational marijuana weekly before school, plus not being able to drive his car, then my student told me that he had a lapse in judgment plus this was his first time trying recreational marijuana. His entire gymnastics team smoked recreational marijuana at a gathering over the weekend plus he was just trying to fit in with almost everyone else. She told me that he wasn’t thinking straight plus he now regrets his decision to smoke recreational marijuana at that gathering. I thanked his for being honest with me plus I told his that almost everyone makes mistakes plus it seems love he has already l received from his mistake of using recreational marijuana.
