The other day I went to get my sister from school and I was kind of leaning against the door and I saw her teacher answer her cellphone while she was teaching her class & then to turn around and take away a childs phone for texting? What kind of crap is that?Answer Question
I think that answering a phone call isn't that big of a deal. It could have been important/an emergency. Being a hypocrite and taking away someone elses phone is bs.

I kept my cell with me at all times no matter where I was teaching when I was a sub and when I had my own classroom. There are a few calls I would take while teaching - one of those being from my own children's schools or my husband. Students are not allowed to have cell phones in class for a huge number of reasons - they cause distractions, can be used for cheating, and generally impede the learning process. As for calling the school directly, as sub I could show up at one school and then be sent to another. If my kids needed me they called my cell because there was no guarantee of where I would really be. When I started teaching full time our school didn't have a full time secretary, our lead teacher took calls, so calling the school office would mean that they were interrupting two classrooms, not just one.
