Journal, Lloyd, School

I was grading math tests the other day. Things were going along more or less like they always do when you’re grading. One of the nice things about teaching maths is that the grading is pretty straightforward. At least it was until I got to Kyle’s test:


I didn’t know what to do. I was stymied for a long time. I put it aside and graded some other, more poorly defended, tests. Eventually I came up with a plan. It took a trip to the art room and more time than it took to grade the test, but I eventually worked around his clever ploy.


I taped the ninja to my monitor.

    Haha!! That kid is hilarious!

    And if the Ninja blocker is on your monitor, looks like all the kids will have to receive a 100 on this test.
