Not long ago I submitted an account of some odd happenings at the school I teach at. I mentioned that I saw shadow people in the hallways and that the school is in a really bad area which has had lots of shootings and murders. This is an update of some other things that have happened since.
I continue to see shadow people around the school but have tried to ignore them... Until the other day. I have two big book shelves next to each other towards the back of my classroom. There is a small space between them and on the first week of school my students would try to get in between them until I told them that was not allowed. They are in Kinder. None of them have attempted it since. I had the students on the carpet teaching a math lesson when I looked up and saw a boy I never saw before sitting in the space between book case. I don't remember much about his details except he had these huge eyes that were just staring at me. I stared back for a second then looked at my students just to make sure none of them had wandered off but when I looked back at the bookcase the boy was gone. My students saw me staring at something so they turned around and asked why I was staring. Not wanting to scare them I just said oh, I thought something fell off the wall. It was really creepy.
A few days later I once again had the kiddos at the carpet teaching reading. I had a boy in time out in a chair near the bookshelf. Suddenly I saw a shadow dash across the room, go right through the boy in time out and then through the wall behind the bookcase and into the class next door. I will say right out, it was not a car driving by. My classroom is very far from the street and there is a portable classroom covering my classroom from the street. It was also not a person because shades were open and since my carpet area with the kids is near the window I would have seen and heard footsteps and someone walking by. This thing I saw floated in... I would say maybe it was my imagination...EXCEPT...that one of my students saw it too. She started screaming and saying it's a ghost, it's a ghost and it went right through "Ben". (Not his real name). Well "Ben" got up in a panic and the rest of my students got really freaked out. The girl just kept saying that the ghost was a man and he was going to return. I did not make out if the shadow I saw was a man or not... All I saw I was the shadow but it was obvious she saw more. Then she screamed out... There he is! All I saw was a little bit of grey movement by the bookcase. Then at recess she kept saying that there were ghosts on the playground but I think she could have been imagining it at that point. In any regards this poor little girl was very scared. I even had parents calling me asking why their kids were so shaken up...
Later after school I was in my classroom alone when the security alarm in the classroom next door starting going off. The teacher had left already and her room was locked. The security company came and said the system sensed movement in there and that is why it went off and asked if I had gone into that room for any reason. I said no, that I had been in my room the entire time... Then suddenly my alarm starting going off for no reason while the security people were there. They could not turn it off and were all baffled by what was going on. It had worked great up until that moment.
I have no idea what is going on at this school, but it is creepy. The fact that the student saw the shadow ghost also tells me that there is something there... I just wish I knew if it was good or not. I don't interact with it and just ignore it when I see it.
