    Maybe I had poor teacher's for chemistry?

    Same.

    I didn't want one. I was looking at the Pixel honestly. But I really do like everything about the new iPhone.

    My chemistry teacher was a VERY nice man who was just not a good teacher. I took chemistry from a fabulous professor in college and suddenly science was interesting again.

    I was a big Pixel fan - had the original and the Pixel 2. Lots of reports with issues with the 3 and Android Pie was having all sorts of weird issues with my Pixel 2 - bluetooth issues, wifi issues, other things. We switched cellular providers and Sheryl and I went to iPhones at that time.

    *Very odd question warning*

    Does hormone therapy affect vocal chords?

    I have a student that hangs out by my classroom most every free period. I always say hi and they just nod back. Today, she spoke with me and she was most definitely a he transitioning to she. Anyway, her voice is very deep and I was just wondering if hormone therapy changes that as well.

    Feeling ignorant and uninformed.

    In other school news.

    I was just informed that a student is suspended all week for making a threat against me. This student has special needs and I was told by his parents and his support team that I was to be hard on him and keep strict boundaries so he could learn how to behave in college. This poor kid thinks we should be buddies and pal around and I spent the first month of school explaining that he is a student and I am the teacher and that our relationship doesn’t extend beyond that. And then he thought he’d start to “tease” me the way friends do. He’ll chant my name randomly in the middle of class and also blurt out inappropriate words/topics. For the last month when he comes in during tutorial or my brunch I let him stay until he acts inappropriately and then I ask him to leave my class until he can behave appropriately. He will pace outside my door chanting my name and saying inappropriate (but not vulgar) things. Lately, the resource specialist who comes with him to class every day will just remove him when he starts. I’m told that yesterday, after being removed from my class he threatened to beat me up because I won’t be his friend.

    Honestly I think the school is suspending him to put pressure on the parents. The school’s point of view is that he isn’t ready to be “mainstreamed” like the parents pushed for. He really isn’t ready. I was told he’s latched onto other teachers in the past and demonstrated the same actions, but I’m the first one he threatened to harm.

    The principal just dropped by my room to ask if I felt scared or uncomfortable.

    “I didn’t until you suspended him and now he’ll blame me.”

    My Google research says that someone transitioning female-to-male will often experience voice changes as the hormone therapy will increase the size of their vocal chords and lower their voice. The same doesn't happen in a male-to-female transition - the vocal chords don't shrink or tighten. Voice training may be necessary - didn't catch whether there's surgery that can alter the vocal chords. My dear friend Louise has a pretty low voice, but she has learned to soften her delivery and "feminize" her voice, so while it's pretty deep, it doesn't sound like a man's voice in a woman's body.

    Thanks.

    I guess I could have googled that too.


    Still not my first resource I guess. Old.

    This is crazy.

    They want me to file for a restraining order.

    He does harass me, but come on. A restraining order?!
