I was lucky enough to teach during a time before cell phones. I watch this documentary series and realize how much more b.s. kids have to go through when they have these tools to destroy other kids with a text that can spread throughout the rest of the school in seconds. It's sad to watch kids being tormented by the technology that they were raised with and should be used for good but more than often it only allows the worst instincts of the kids who can easily be bullies. I am sure I acted irrational at times but nothing like some of the kids in this show. I don't think I could even teach in a high school anymore. I have lost the ability to operate in that jungle and I used to be GREAT at navigating all the moments that come with a job in the snake pit.
