Is eating in class disruptive or stimulating to the mind? Read further and find out what CB teachers and students had to say.
We have all had that time in class either right before lunch or during a random time of the day when our stomach grumbles. We instinctively want to pull out some sort of snack before remembering that it is one of the rules in class not to eat in class.
However, many students feel that a nice little snack during class helps them to concentrate a little better.
Senior Sam Howard (’13) states, “I eat lot, and I still look this good.”
While humorously expressing that he loves eating in class, at times Sam worries that his teachers will hear the sound his Cheez-It bag makes.
“Out of my seven classes, I probably eat in five of them,” he says.
Although, students are constantly encouraged to eat a healthy and hearty breakfast and lunch, many students dismiss the importance of breakfast entirely. Some students even skip lunch just to complete homework assignments.
Teachers make their class rules for a reason and expect each student to abide by each rule. Eating in class has always been a tough rule to enforce, but AP Literature teacher Ms. Marian Shackel stands her ground regarding food in her nice and tidy classroom.
“I do not allow any kind of food or drink except water in my classroom,” sternly states Ms. Shackel.
Ms. Shackel further says, “I only allow students to eat in class when I provide food and supervise.”
When asked what her approach is when catching someone eat food in her classroom she calmly tells them, “Do you have enough to share with the entire class?”
For some students it is very easy not to eat class because they follow proper eating habits.
Senior Sarah Engstrom (’13) says, “I eat at lunch, but I do bring tea into my A set because it helps me wake up.”
There you have it Falcons! Eat properly and take advantage of lunch and break to put something in your stomach.
