Evacuation

A week ago on Monday when I went to school there was an awful smell permeating the halls of the science wing of the school. We searched everywhere trying to determine where the smell was coming from. On Thursday we discovered that some chemicals had spilled in a storage room that we never go in and that was the source of the smell. Well, after smelling the smell for three days and not taking any action, the school decided that at that moment we needed to evacuate the science wing. I got to spend the rest of the day watching the same video over and over in the theater with the rest of the science classes. Hazmat had to come to our school and apparently the toxicity level (on a scale of 1-4) was at a 3. If I die soon we will all know why. I don't have any pictures of my school or classroom for this post, except for this one of Ben and I posing with Chauncy Peppertooth (my skeleton).

Natalie said...

I am still giggling over the name of your blog!

Luisa said...

I'm so glad you didn't die...however, isn't it SWEET when you get out of teaching for the day? Even for gaseous fumes that could kill you, it's worth it:) haha

Ashley said...

Natalie-thanks for appreciating the name of my blog
Luisa-I felt the same way about getting out of class. All of the other teachers were upset and talking about the loss of class time, and I was secretly hoping that it would be so bad the next day we would miss another day of class.

Hop said...

You should be offended I didn't have a good time in Utah...but of course, we were SUPPOSED to spend more time together...

Anyway, I linked from my blog to yours, so all my friends can read your stuff.

Luisa said...

I've never understood teachers who get upset about the loss of class time...the only way I would complain about that is if it happened to interupt a day I had set aside as a party day...then I'd be mad it didn't happen on a different day:) Okay, I realize to some we might sound like bad teachers...but let's face it, you welcome ANY break. And you know what...I bet those teachers who don't want to lose class time are the kind of teachers that are always stressed out, yell at the kids all the time, etc. so that should make us feel better:)

Ashley said...

This is why you and I are friends Luisa.

Stephanie J. Robertson said...

i can appreciate these sentiments and i am sure your students love you all the more for them as well (even if you dont let them in on your exact feelings on the matter- the general idea is sure to creep out in appealing ways to them regardless).

Hawley Family said...

Oh...getting out of teaching for a day is quite the treat...however sad that they didn't take action until day three and you all could have been dead. Ha ha. Clark County loves you. Ha ha! So...Ben...nice!
