I have been teaching in pre-schools for 20 plus years now! I love my job. Teaching young children is truly an honor. But there are most definitely difficult situations to deal with. One time, there was a student that thought it would be a funny prank to change the school’s thermostat to 90 degrees. It got so hot in the building that we had to evacuate the children outside. None of the faculty could figure out why it got so hot all of a sudden. The AC thermostat is normally set to 70 degrees to keep the school at a cool temperature. Finally we checked the thermostat and saw that the heat was on. When this student changed the setting, he didn’t realize that it would overload the HVAC system and the whole AC unit would conk out. That’s exactly what happened. So now, the whole school building was out of air conditioning. We had to hire an outside HVAC technician to come repair it. He told us that the thermostat needed to be replaced, which made sense. It was an old building and an old system. He said that our HVAC unit was very old and would soon need to be replaced as well, but that it would last us until the summer time. It would be easier to do that repair when the children were out of school on summer vacation. After having to send the children home for the day, we finally restored the air conditioning in the building. The next day we were on the search for the culprit of this evil plot, who ended up getting suspended for a week.
