"Jerry": [farts loudly]
Class: "Ew!", "Nasty!", "Stop!", "Jerry!!"
Me: "What did I say about that? Either go out into the hall to do that or hold it in!"
Student 1: "He did it on purpose; he pushed it out!"
Student 2: "Yeah, he put down pressure!"
Jerry: [walks over to the doorway, makes sure his rear end is in the hallway, and makes a face as he farts again.]
The kicker? All of this went down during my formal observation.
Good thing my boss was laughing as hard as the kids were!
