Today I told my grade 12s that if reading comprehension tests had faces, I would punch them in the balls.

Why on earth would you punch your students in the balls if reading comprehension tests had faces?

Middleton variant. Mera's reign as Queen is already a pretty cool story in itself.

One of my students titled his essay "My sexual endeavor."

Need I say more?

Actually yes, some context might be helpful. Why would a student pick that title?

Because he's being silly.

In other news, I have a student skipping my class. Turns out she's got some issues. She came from another school so I looked up her IPP (you guys call them IEPs in the US). Turns out her previous IPP advisor at her old school is my ex-girlfriend.

Nah. I'm more worried that the student is struggling with her transition. The school my ex teaches at is like one of those new "how are you feeling today" schools with their "make learning fun and engaging by personalizing it" attitude. My school is all about academic rigor, so we really grind our students in preparation for their diploma exams in grade 12. So compound that with social and emotional needs and it's a pretty tough thing to take.

I'm hoping she shows up on Monday. If not, I'll get the AP and/or the guidance counselor involved.
