Please let me know if this has been discussed already. Give me a link. I don't remember.
I have a student this semester who smells like homeless stinky body odor. She looks normal if you stay at least six or seven feet away from her. She speaks well. She is polite to everybody. She's smart. She's curious. She doesn't seem crazy. She gets her work done on time. She's never late for class. She doesn't lie to me about her grandmother's funeral. I like her.
But she smells like shit.
I first noticed the smell last week. This morning, the student stayed after class to ask a question, and my nostrils received the full force of the aroma.
I do not know how other students can stand sitting near her for an entire class.
Help me on this.
Q. How have you dealt with this? Any ideas???
[And please share ideas that definitely did not work. No point in reinventing the square wheel. Be honest, dammit.]
