Today was the 9th grade English Final. As the teacher I gave them a Exam Review Packet with EVERYTHING the students would need to 'Ace' the Final. However this particular student went in another direction when studying for her Final. Jesus.
Prior or to answering these questions, she answered a previous question: "who visited Johnny in the Hospital?'... she answered with 'Jesus'.
Unfortunately Jesus can't save her today on this exam.

Scene: test day. Teacher (me) goes over formulas needed to make them fresh in mind before handing out test. Students take test, go on merry way. Later that day, I am approached by a coteacher who found writing on the desk. It was said formulas. I confronted the student and here is our conversation.
Teacher: is there anything that you want to tell me about the test?
T: writing was found on the desk. In your handwriting. It was the formulas that were needed.
S: well you told us them so I thought it was okay.
T: you thought writing answers on a desk was okay.... you realize that's cheating? I could give you a zero and write you up.
S: no. You told us the formulas. I was just writing them down so I'd remember for the test.
T: ...thats cheating. I'll talk to you tomorrow about the consequences.
The next day...
T: so I decided to give you a zero for the questions... (cut off)
S: I checked the student handbook. That's not cheating.

I am an immersion ESL teacher, so I have a room full of 13 non-native speaking English children for 45 minutes and I don't speak their language...
Today in my teaching land, a 9-year-old student couldn't remember the word "lost." She quietly whispered the word for "lost" in her home language and looked very distraught for a few seconds...
Then her face lit up. She took my copy of the homework I was collecting, thrust it under a chair, triumphantly stood up and shouted "Where is my homework?!"
Me: You lost your homework?
S: YES! (I give her a high five for creativity)
Me: Do you need a new one?
I handed her the paper and she flounced into her seat. I have never before seen a student so proud of needing to redo a worksheet before.
