Class Act

we are all students

Setting: classroom

Me: Okay, please pass your homework*.

(homework: In a 1/4 yellow paper, write the topic, thesis statement and problems/issues of your term paper)

Me: (After seeing one homework encoded in a bond paper) Juan**, why did you type your assignment? It’s a waste of paper. You’ll be using a lot of them later.

Juan: Ma’am, I am sorry, I don’t have a yellow paper.

Me: So instead of buying one, you just spend P10-15 for encoding this homework?

Juan: Ma’am, you don’t understand. I work as a part-time SA*** in an internet cafe.


Last week is prelims week, a week tagged as “hell week” by students. Only a few knows that it’s also a “hell week” for teachers.

I for one have spent sleepless nights writing the exams and after that another sleepless nights for checking them (the nights aren’t over yet).

Seen on some of my students’ test papers:

The Chaplet of the Divine Mercy

God, help please!!!

😦 :p 🙂



*I use the term “homework” rather than “assignment” to remind them that this is a type of work done at home.
** Not his real name.
*** Student assistant.
