    When the teacher came into

    I am not sure if my sentence sounds natural. Do I need an article before "little Paul?" Is my punctuation correct? Would you please correct my mistakes?

    When the teacher came into the classroom, all the students got up from their chairs except the little Paul, who was busy playing a computer game.

    Re: When the teacher came into

    The article doesn't belong there. Once you remove it, the sentence will sound natural.
    I am not a teacher.
