How many of you have had a teacher who was obviously attracted to a student?
Hopefully not too many of you can raise your hand when asked that question. I’m not exactly in that situation, but I am in something similar. If you’ll remember back to my class schedule post, I’m taking a class called First Aid and CPR for the Professional Rescuer. Not a very interesting class, the only reason I’m taking it is because it’s part of the EMT certification.
Anyway, I digress, back to the story.
Today in class, our Associate Instructor (AI for those of you still in the high school), we’ll call him Ralph, introduces to us our Undergraduate Teaching Intern (UTI, youngens), we’ll call her Pam. She is a fifth year senior majoring in safety (I didn’t know that was possible until this semester). Her role, as we understand it, it to assist in grading and in demonstrations in class. Pretty much the normal role of a UTI.
Pam really isn’t too attractive of a woman, but that is beside the point. The point is Ralph obviously wants to get into Pam’s pants.
Today was conscious choking day, so we went through the procedures and HOW-TOs for getting a foreign object dislodged from someone’s trachea.
And of course, Ralph must demonstrate on Pam.
I’m going to spare you all the details, but I will say that he was superfluously friendly during his demonstration.
And IT DIDN’T STOP THERE!
We went on to talk about checking a conscious victim and getting consent to give care. Again, his hands were all over her in places they shouldn’t have been inside a classroom…
Now, I’m a pretty easy going guy, things don’t get under my skin too easily, but after this, I don’t even want to go back to class! Now, don’t get me wrong, I will just because I want to pass the class, but I’m a bit disgusted that I have to sit in the front row!
Hopefully all of you reading this will have enough common sense to not act like that if you’re ever in that position. It’s not right, it is fraternization and it’s disgusting. Just leave the hormones outside the classroom and the world will be a better place.
