Teacher lets toddlers drink her blood
ONE of the worst things to happen to teaching is the film Dead Poet’s Society. They’ve all watched it and tried to work out how to be groovily different and engage their classes in a way that is authoritative and pally. They want to reach out to the children and connect with them in original, kooky ways and obviously, this thinking can bite them on their tweed arses.
For example, one teacher at a Norwegian nursery decided to do some science with her kiddies and brought in a vial of her own blood.
The teacher in Sola poured out a blood sample onto a plate for children aged between three and six. So far, a little weird, but so good. But what happened next? Well, we’ll let the weary head-teacher Inger Lise Soemme Andersen explain.
“The children asked if they could touch it and she allowed them. Then they asked ‘how do we get it off?’ so she put her finger in her mouth and the children followed suit.”
“The parents are mortified, shaken and shocked.”
Imagine that. You pick your little bundle of snot up from the nursery and coo in that horrible way you parents do, saying “what did you get up to today?” and your sprog drools someone else’s blood out of their mouth and says “WE DWANK TEACHERS VEINS!”
You’d do somersaults in fright.
The teacher has now been tested for AIDS and Hepatitis B with authorities insisting the risk of transmitting any infection very low.
Not impossible. Low.
