We didn't come here for this....

Whenever I need to talk to a parent I usually have a problem, that is I don't speak Spanish. last week I took a phone away from a student for texting in class and Mom came to pick it up. Well since Mom was there I figure I'd tell her that the student was not passing the class. Well the student told me "well this isn't what we came here for". I was stunned, and SO WAS MOM. She didn't speak much English, but definitely understood what her child had said. I went next door to a teacher who does speak spanish and got my message across. The student was not very happen with that,..... but too bad!
