First, the teacher needs to inform the student of the possible consequences. Then, the office needs to be contacted. The student is not under supervision while hiding in the bathroom. Therefore, he or she is not safe. If something were to happen to the student there could be severe consequences for Mrs. Galvin because she failed to report the student. Parent contact is also recommended.

This situation needs to be reported to the office because of its severity of the problem. Most schools have procedures in place to deal with these situations. I would also inform the studentís guidance counselor so they can talk with the student and possibly work out a solution. I would not change my teaching based on one student not liking my class or me.

This is a great opportunity to find out why this student doesn't enjoy Mrs. Galvin's class. The teacher needs to try to connect with the student and to ensure they are creating lessons and a classroom that are engaging and one that students want to be in.

This is helpful, the teacher should talk one on one with the student.

I agree as well. Having a one-on-one with the student will allow the teacher to try to find out the issue.

Because this has serious safety issues involved, the student needs to be reported to administration and a parents needs to be notified. My question would be when the child didn't show up for class, did Mrs. Galvin not ask anything? Surely this student has some friends that may know if she is in school that day! If the student was in her last class and not in her current class, where is she? The has to be a level of accountability on the part of Mrs. Galvin for the safety of her student! Mrs. Galvin may need to have a meeting with her student to try and connect with her and find out what she can do to grab and hold the student's interest.

This is a rather severe issue, as the child is not supervised while in the bathroom. Mrs. Galvin should be more careful with her attendance to be sure if he is there. It may also help to have the student's previous teacher's contact information for a quick check to see if he was there.

My suggestion would be to inform the students of the consequences of skipping. I would also inform parents and the office about this problem. Students are not safe when they are not in the classroom that they are supposed to be in. Not to mention, Mrs.Galvin would get in some trouble for taking no action in this problem.

The teacher should keep her lessons engaging and fun. If she finds a student is skipping her class she should take care of the problem right away. Maybe make a phone call home. If that doesn't work then involve the administration.

I do not believe that the teacher should questions whether or not her lectures are engaging. The student shouldn't be skipping class even if the lesson is boring.
