Tanisha, my assaulter, came back to class today. She brought a note from the attendance office asking the teachers to give her missing work from her suspension. She came up to my desk and said "Can you sign this?"

It was so weird to see her again, but at the same time not weird at all. I said "so you're back, huh?" and she nodded. We didn't acknowledge the incident that put her out of school in the first place. She didn't apologize and I didn't ask her to. She just sat down and her seat and acted just like she always has. She talked during my lecture and screamed at her friends, she put her head down and rolled her eyes, she drew on the desk and fell asleep before class was over.
