    Highlight so far from my day during retesting for a state test. Currently stuck holding my 5th block.

    Student: coach pearl, can I charge my phone? It’s about to die!
    Me: what percentage is it on?
    Student: 60%!

    Email from parent:

    “As natives to Texas and ties to Texas A&M, we feel that it is important that Johnny So and So watch the funeral of President Bush. He will be leaving school at 9:30 and returning upon the conclusion of the service.”

    What the fuck is this?

    After almost half a year in 6th, I can say that I severely underestimated just how big of babies kids at that age are.

    So the vaping epidemic is in full force but one of my wife’s students hit it too much one morning and shit himself at school. All up his back like a baby exploding out of a diaper.

    What is the craftiest trick y'all know of students pulling trying to stretch out a paper? Was just discussing this with someone. I know about raise the font size only on punctuation marks. But have you heard of type shit in white at the end to raise the the word count?

    If we are talking paper length, then increasing character spacing by 0.3. It's basically indistinguishable by the naked eye, you REALLY have to be a die hard font expert to notice it, but with a full page of text, 1 inch margins, Calibri, 12 point font, single spaced, it bumped three whole lines of text down to the next page. This was with no paragraphs, an actual whole page of text with no empty space. Not much, but if you are talking 10+ page paper. Double space it like what was required when i went to school, and that's 1/9th of a page of "extra" text. If you need to do a 10-page paper, you now only need to write nine pages with 0.3 character spacing.

    Likewise, also increase line spacing to 2.1. Also nearly indistinguishable to the naked eye without really close examination.

    And always send that shit in PDF unless the professor asks for a different format. They can't easily figure out if you did sly stuff like this if they don't have the original file to open in Word or Google Docs.

    My sixth graders still handwrite most work, and the abundance of five-word lines can be humorous.
