Guys, I need help.
So, I have this geography teacher and he’s new this year. He just teaches freshman and he’s in his late 50s-early 60s. You know when you meet someone and you just immediately get bad vibes? Yeah, that’s what happened with this guy. The first time I ever stepped into his classroom it was this wave of discomfort and bad vibes. He smells like stale urine. This man stands with his groin about 4 inches from the front of my desk. I have never liked unwarranted physical contact, and have a very large “personal bubble.” He is CONSTANTLY invading it.Today was the worst yet, though. As I mentioned, I have a big personal bubble. I am easily made uncomfortable if touched in the wrong area. Well, today in class, he was constantly in front of my desk and closer than normal. He walked down the little aisle between the row i sit in and the one next to me. When he came back to the front, he stood in front of my desk, then put his hand on his crotch and palmed himself for a good 5 seconds, before moving to stand to the side of my desk with that hand on my desk, about 2 inches from my arm. I, of course, shrank away, and he stood like that for about 15 seconds, before he pulled his hand back and walked away. It made me feel vulnerable, violated, and really, really, really, uncomfortable. Just thinking about it is making me feel gross.
I don’t know what to do. It seems a lot of the other teachers like him, and if I tell my mom she’ll say I’m just overreacting. Which, I probably am. I mean, it shouldn’t have made me tear up, I guess. Or feel so uncomfortable…. but it did. And I don’t know what to do. Please. Help.
