I’m a teacher at an elementary school. I teach first grade. Today a child in my class wet herself when it was time to go home… When I went to clean her up, , and what happened today came after she hid at the back of the playground with another student. I’ve noticed odd marks on her arms before, but I was never really sure until today that something serious might be going on. I don’t know what the appropriate step is to take.
