    "I was giving a geometry test, and one of the students finished before everybody else. He went up to the table at the center of the room where he was supposed to place his finished exam, and he did. But when he got back to his seat, he pulled out notebook paper, wrote a couple of words on it, and ripped the paper in half. I was at my desk in the corner, so I didn't really know what he was doing. Next thing I know, he walked back up to the front of the room, placed the two halves of paper on either side of the table, and placed his test under one of those papers. Now, I was confused. I had to figure out what he was doing. So I went to look at the table. On the ripped halves of paper, he had written "PASS" and "FAIL" ... and he had placed his exam under the word PASS. I was amused. Didn't think much of it. Went back to my desk. A few minutes later, another student walks up to the table. And I watched as her eyes darted back and forth ... and back and forth ... until she finally looked at me with a puppy-dog face, sighed, and placed her exam under FAIL. At that point, I just let everyone else self-segregate. Turns out they did a pretty good job of identifying which pile their test belonged to!"

    "I teach choir and help direct our pretty big school musicals. I just found out that one of my students, an incredible dancer, thinks I have the most beautiful ankles and is jealous of their appearance and apparent flexibility. So much so that she Snapchatted another dancer friend the attached picture of my ankles during class! So ridiculous, hilarious, and weird. I love love love high schoolers. And I, of course, had no idea I had even remotely nice ankles!"

    "My students were supposed to be taking notes in class, and I walked by one who happened to be doodling ... this Kool-Aid Man. I laughed out loud, and then, told her to pay attention or leave. She then asked if she should use the door or bust through the wall. I laughed and didn't kick her out."
