Can you send me the homework and class work for (dates) because I will be absent.After reminding the student that it is their responsibility to check with a friend and on our student management system for any worked missed, I didn't think any more about it.
Then I got a chat from a colleague.
The colleague asked if I had seen the email and then went on to say they had forwarded it on to the counselor so the inappropriate references could be dealt with.
What?!??! I obviously missed something.

I went back to the email. I read it and re-read it and didn't see anything inappropriate.
Then I clicked on 'details'.
Ah! The student had given the teachers nicknames in their address book and obviously hadn't realized those nicknames show up when you use the email addresses.
I chuckled at the immaturity of it, referring to a teacher by a body part and pointing out another's complexion challenges.
I am jealous of our counselor. I would LOVE to get to have the conversation with the student.
