The police came about ten minutes or so after the other teacher left the room. Between Mr. Calloway’s indignation when the cops entered and my appearing groggily in the back of the classroom, between Mr. Calloway’s screaming and lunging at me and me half-sobbing and recounting the incident to the officers, between the cops restraining Mr. Calloway with cuffs and the other teachers gawking at us both, between Mr. Calloway being led out the door and my hysterical retelling of how I couldn’t understand why he’d hit someone he loved – well, I didn’t get to finish cleaning up bulletin boards.
