Your Question

Hey pat

I have something that’s worrying me a bit I think my teacher may be a child predator there’s this girl in my class who he always makes excuses to touch say on the shoulder or stare at her and get uncomfortable close one time they were so close they almost kissed and you can tell the girl is uncomfortable when he gets to close
