Your Time’s Up
There’s no better way to terrorize your students than to remind them that time is perennially passing, unlike their grades. This is your teacher’s way to tell you to focus on the question and give your best answer, while also instilling bloodcurdling fear.
The secret to a test is to not spend too much energy on one item. Go with your gut and hope for the best.
Teachers are Omniscient Beings
Teachers are not gods, but they know what you are up to even before you start doing it. They’ve been there and done that. They are experts in identifying who are faking it, and who are doing the real studying.
You have two choices. Either master the art of the poker face while reading texts while your cellphone is on your crotch or stop looking at your phone.
Superhero Class 101
Either this class is filled with students who have superhero powers and they are being trained on how to properly use it, or their teacher is messing with them.
Either way, this homework is a good way for them to practice reaching beyond their grasp and doing what they can for the greater good.
Selfie Shaming 101
If you recognize the face on the projector, be warned that it is your classmate specially mentioned by the teacher because he was using Snapchat in the middle of the lecture.
It is the teacher’s way to overtly remind everyone to not do the same lest bear the honor of your face being projected in the entire room – in an unflattering way too.
A Tree is the Best Teacher
The teachers in this school have probably had it up to their heads in paperwork and decided to entrust the profession of teaching to anyone who is available, right here and now.
Fortunately or unfortunately for the students in this school, a tree fell right in front of the principal, and thus it was decided it was God’s answer for the school’s current lack of teachers.
Teachers Who Make it Worth Their While
These teachers decided that they hold the key to their students’ future and so decided to take it a step further by the power of their professional clout.
They are now charging fees to put a good word in on each student to their parents. This definitely beats hard work and actually doing homework. All one needs is anywhere from $1 to $10 and voila! You now have your teacher on your side.
Write Your Name
This instruction is simple enough yet many seem unable to follow it, either due to carelessness or embarrassment. The latter stems from knowing the fact that your name will be forever attached to a paper bearing the red letter C, D, or F.
Own up to your work though. Embrace anything and everything you are responsible for. It will help you become a decent and responsible human being in the long run. But if you prefer to not write your name, go ahead, it’s a free country.
The Teacher is Boss
This is how mafia honchos roll, as well as any kidnapper out to get a ransom from their victims. Who said teachers can’t use the same strategy on their students – it’s a free country after all.
So whoever hid this dude, prepare for your teacher’s wrath. If you love your grades, get the dude out and save yourselves. Trust me, it’s for the best.
The Best Extra Credit Ever
Students would best ask their parents about this question. They hold the key to any essential knowledge about 80's pop star Rick Astley.
Also, the teacher is probably within this age range and was a fan of Astley, so he decided to incorporate this bonus question just because he felt like it.
Student life is a hard life. You have to wake up early, go to school, pretend to listen to your teacher, and then pretend to care about the lessons your teacher is saying. So when this dude found all of that work overwhelming, the teacher decided to give him another lesson.
This student probably woke up bewildered seeing himself on social media sleeping while his teacher is behind him giving a thumbs-up sign.
There are teachers who take their work very seriously they would do anything and everything for their profession’s sake.
Some are even willing to go beyond what is asked of them, like crawl through an air vent just to make sure her students aren’t cheating – surely, the phenomenon of non-cheating students have yet to happen in anyone’s lifetime.
Worst Torture Ever
Nickelback is a Canadian band popular for its same-sounding songs, a few of which were discovered to be recycled tunes of their previous work.
Clearly, no one wants to go through the terrifying experience of having to sit through monstrous music. But then, being late the 8th time, you probably deserve some Nickelback in your ears just to remind you it’s time to get your act together.
Best Excuse Ever
No longer is homework being eaten by students’ pet dogs. They have now upped or maybe lowered the ante by simply telling teachers their homework is missing.
As a consequence of not exerting any effort to submit homework or at least give a lousy excuse for not having one, this teacher decided to punish this student with a Bermuda Triangle award.
Shaming doesn’t have to be all negative. This teacher decided to celebrate students’ mistakes by posting their picture on the school’s Wall of Shame.
Its intent was actually to help students lose the shame and embrace their errors with the goal of not doing the same thing again.
Depressing Test, Depressing Grade
This student is self-aware enough to know that his test performance was not at par to standards – a fact that depressed him and so felt he had to give the teacher his thoughts.
The teacher, having checked the test confirmed the student’s fears. Don’t be surprised to get this comment when you didn’t bother studying.
Used Cellphones for Sale?
The teacher probably got sick and tired of having to hear all those cellphones ringing and beeping, he decided to make the students place them in front of the class.
Either the teacher is torturing the class and is delighted to see students looking helplessly at their beeping and vibrating phone, or he lined up these cellphones to get them ready for a firing squad.
In an effort to maybe scare the living daylights out of this not-so diligent student, this teacher decided to attach a McDonald’s job application form to this student’s test.
It is an overt reminder that the student should get his act together or else he will end up flipping burgers for the rest of his life.
No Comic Sans Ever
This teacher clearly means well when she suggested that Comic Sans should not be anyone’s font of choice for a variety of reasons.
Though this font has been shown as one of the easiest to use in Microsoft Word, try not to use them – unless you’re making a written report on the existential meaning of My Little Pony cartoons. Comic Sans would cause your teachers to not take you seriously.
Best Beverage Ever?
This teacher used to be a pirate – maybe. Or a male witch who gets his energy from the tears of students wishing for a passing grade. If you’re a student and you do not want to be part of this teacher’s beverage, study well.
Do not give this teacher the privilege of extracting your tears. When fear takes hold of you, the best way to defeat it is by studying – and diligently, too.
Joke's on You
This joke is funny on all levels only if this is not meant for you. It is evidently difficult to laugh if you are the brunt of this humorous drawing.
Alas, the keeper of the gate would have none of it and blocked his exit simply because he is to not pass. Whether you take that literally or figuratively – a sad face, and not a smiley one, is definitely in order.
You Have Been Warned
Sleeping is one of life’s necessities. It recharges the body in order to keep it functioning well. But there is a time for everything, and sleeping inside a classroom is something everyone needs to stop doing.
It would have been better if the teacher personally asked the student to not sleep in class and find out the cause of his drowsiness.
Rudeness Will Get You Nowhere
This student has had enough of English and Wuthering Heights he felt it was right to give his teacher his unbridled thoughts.
When he did, this teacher – instead of mincing words – corrected the student’s words, incorrect grammar, noted his run-on sentences, and generally advised him to at least express himself well.
The Quill is Mightier Than the Pen
Students are always advised to bring the necessary supplies to class. So when this student failed to bring his own stuff, he decided to ask the teacher for one because he thought teachers have no reason to grant his request.
He’s right but he clearly didn’t expect this twist. Maybe to make him want to bring his own pen, this teacher gave this student a quill.
The Pen is Mightier Than This Pencil
No one wants to be seen using this pencil, especially if you’re in the 9th grade. This teacher is probably encouraging students to bring their own school supplies as a way to keep them responsible.
Anytime they fail to bring their own, this pencil serves as punishment.
The Early Bird Avoids the Bin
This teacher is giving this class a valuable lesson. He wants everyone to work hard and submit everything on time.
If not, everyone’s work will have the privilege or the punishment to meet the garbage bin. No matter what your excuse is, this teacher is unforgiving.
To make sure that everyone was seriously answering the test questions and not just encircling any letter that catches their fancy, this teacher decided to embed a trick question in a test.
The student who gets to do what the instructions say they should do has the option of encircling A or B. But this question isn’t for them, really. It’s for those who are randomly giving answers for the heck of it.
This student probably found this math question so overwhelming he decided to just put in #YOLO because he can – and he can’t, for the life of him, figure out what x is.
Kudos to this student’s chutzpah, he gets an A for courage. Unfortunately, courage is not being graded for this test.
Blackmail Won’t Work
This student learned the facts of life the hard way. Unfortunately, a teddy bear drawing had to be sacrificed in the process.
Kudos to the teacher for doing the right thing. Still, teddy did not die in vain. Thanks to teddy, no student would ever have to bring up the kidnapping and hostage of a teddy bear just to get an A.
Do You Feel Guilty Now?
This teacher is not afraid to take things to the extreme. His students’ grades were so bad he literally died – or at least pretended to.
Apparently, he believes his students killed him. Thus, to show his students he is deadly serious, he brought in a casket and lay inside it.
Walkens Not Accepted
Christopher Walken is not allowed in this teacher’s office after office hours. Besides him, walk-ins are also not accepted. This teacher wanted to get his point across minus having to deal with explaining himself.
This picture is more than enough to deliver a message while making anyone not feel bad about not being able to walk in.
Cereal vs Serial
Though cereal and serial sound the same, they are completely different entities. One is edible, and the other denotes something continuous.
Instead of this teacher simply correcting the student’s spelling error, he decided to take it up a notch by literally drawing a cereal and killing it – the way the sentence described it as such.
Beautifully Silent Passive-Aggressiveness
These clips were designed with humor in mind. It is best not to take these paper holders seriously. Still, imagine them being used to hold students’ exams or papers.
It is enough to scare away even the rock-hearted student who spent overnight trying to finish a paper only to have them organized and described as crap.
Cheaters Never Win
The worst kind of cheating is when you have done your best to not study and made sure you copied the answers correctly, but still end up failing.
Fortunately, the teacher gave the student wise advice just in case he decides to cheat again. Here’s to the next student’s attempt to ace the system using nefarious means.
This is one of those rare occasions where a student was able to break a teacher down by the sheer power of his lousy paper.
This student may have won this time by causing this teacher to throw in the towel and surrender. But did the student really win when his paper was not even graded at all? What could have the teacher seen to make him quit?
Bird's Eye View
This teacher is taking his work not just seriously but literally. Sick and tired of cheating students, he decided to take matters into his own hands.
He made sure he gets a bird’s eye view of the room by actually perching atop a tall chair.
Honesty is the Best Policy
The student could have asked the teacher for extra credit or bonus points just because of the teacher’s spilled beer.
Though the teacher could give a reason that it was the paper’s fault that he started drinking anyway, spilling beer on a student’s paper is uncalled for. Kudos to this teacher for admitting the fact that beer is the drink of choice during paper-grading.
Times New Roman is Life
At least in this classroom it is. Use any other font and you’re dead – at least to this teacher you are. No other font will do.
Times New Roman is the standard font to use unless you want to experience something else worst than failing – seeing your paper burnt into ash.
The Syllabus is Life
This teacher is probably sick and tired of having to field questions from students who prefer to not read the syllabus.
No longer interested to respond to something they should already know, this professor had a shirt specially made for times like this.
This teacher is doing what most naughty students are caught doing. Probably annoyed that a student is sleeping in his class, this teacher hunkered down to tie this poor student’s shoelaces.
There are many reasons why a student may be sleeping. He could be tired from having to do a part-time job or he may have family problems, or the class might be a tad boring. Tsk, tsk, bad teacher.
Gaga Over Gaga
This teacher is ingeniously teaching the elements while making the students easily recall them thanks to a Lady Gaga song.
Either the teacher is a fan of the singer or the song was simply used for convenience’s sake, this is a lesson that deserves an award.
This is another creative way to teach lessons to students while using their favorite internet memes.
Instead of simply describing the proper ways of doing a scientific experiment, and the scientific process, this teacher incorporated popular memes to help students remember.
Best Answer/Question Ever
Nothing should be taken at face value. So when this teacher put a test item asking students to impress him, he got the best response from the class.
This student, appropriately using scientific inquiry in answering the teacher’s test question, aptly asked: “Why?” The teacher, thankful that the student applied proper scientific inquiry and doubt, gave the student additional points – as he or she should.
This student had no choice but to draw a man dolphin after realizing that he or she may fail the test.
Either the teacher was touched by the drawing or he or she simply took pity on the students’ bad grades, the man dolphin was accepted and was actually enough to give the students plus points.
Think Before You Follow
It seems critical thinking is strictly being encouraged in this class. The teacher made a list of instructions the class was supposed to follow. But students need not follow everything to a T.
This teacher is promoting the process of logic and constant questioning to their students. If you are a sheep who simply follow what is asked of you, you need to learn to question and look beyond what is being asked.
Great Life Lesson
When a classmate drew a rude image on another student’s paper, this teacher was able to handle the issue with ease and grace.
The result: the rude drawing turned into a flower. Instead of getting angry, the teacher was able to overcome the issue and even turned it around for the positive – a lesson we should all learn and apply in the real world.
It’s not that this teacher would rather not be bothered by students’ incessant questions. It is more beneficial for the students to discover their own solutions instead of conveniently asking for them.
Plus, the teacher gets to experience the convenience of not having to field questions all day whilst forcing students to learn the art of self-reliance – a value that would serve them in the long run, both in school and in the real world.
Red Pen Wins
In the battle of ninjas vs ninjas, it is not the more powerful, more agile, more adept in ninja skills who wins.
In this specific war, it is he who holds the red pen that gets to dictate the game’s winner. This black ninja is powerless to the red ninja as the latter was drawn by the teacher.
Ask for Helen
Helen Waite is the go-to person of this teacher whenever students ask about their papers.
In order to stop students in their tracks – and as a way to deal with their constant questions – this teacher hired a certain Helen Waite to keep the students in line. Helen Waite has yet to be seen by the students though.
Keep Your Phones to Yourself
Imagine using your phone while in the middle of the class and the teacher sees you. You know that using your phone during class hours is not allowed thus expect the teacher to confiscate it.
Plus, prepare to not see your phone again until after class. When you do, get ready to see the most terrifying image of all.
The Best Comeback
Students will always be students. Some of them need to be encouraged to study while some are belligerent enough to not care at all.
This overheard conversation between a student and a teacher is now forever immortalized in social media thanks to another student who posted it.
Stop With the PDA
Raging hormones are a thing in high school – everyone has it and everyone is using it at times during inappropriate times and situations.
This teacher, in an effort to curb – at least ever so slightly – the students’ hormones, decided to post this picture of what he thinks all high schoolers engaging in PDA do.
This teacher is doing his best to capture students’ fleeting attention. Thus the dress and the wig.
Most likely the mustache has been there all along. If this doesn’t catch students’ attention, nothing will. Apparently, it did, and fortunately too. It is unclear though what subject this costume was used – calculus maybe?
This teacher is a fan of Borat. He or she is a fan of Borat so much it was incorporated in the test question as a bonus point.
If you’re a student and you need those points, throw out that thing called shame and humiliation and do what Borat does. You’ll thank yourself later – maybe.
Small Penmanship Wins?
There is always that one student who writes so small it is enough to give you a headache.
This teacher got exactly that when he was trying to read this student’s paper. The letters are too small he had no choice but to give up and surrender. For his eyesight’s sake, he asked the student what grade she wants.
Nothing is as depressing than knowing that the stars we look up to at night, and sometimes wish upon, are actually dead.
Thanks to this teacher for giving us the hard facts of life. Now, every time we look up at the night time sky, we have this teacher’s face to remember.
Teachers being sarcastic is their way to subtly get back at their students while trying to wean off the stress of the job as well as the lazy answers of their students.
Instead of getting mad, this teacher answered the student in a way that would also elicit laughter.
Let it Rip
This teacher is polite and rude all at the same time. If you think being both at the same time is not possible, this teacher is a diamond in the rough.
Teachers are clearly humans too, at times they are too human though.
Not everyone has the skill to write a good essay, or at least a mediocre one. Apparently, this girl’s work is so bad the teacher had no other words left to describe it.
This teacher found it easier to swat a fly dead, and paste it on this paper instead of threading words to tell the girl how bad the essay was.
You Can’t Beat
Teach Thanks to their years of experience with tons of students, this teacher knows how to make a funny comeback while also giving this student a lesson about protons and its charges.
As much as this student wants to beat this teacher, you simply can’t beat Teach in his own game.
This Clown is Not Clowning Around
A lot of people are scared of clowns – at times with good reason. There is something odd about a person with white makeup on and a smile perennially stuck on its face.
This teacher dressed up as a clown to make a statement that there is really nothing to fear but fear itself. Bad grades are something to fear too so study well and mind your own business.
An Oxymoron is Not a Moron
This student took to heart the definition of an oxymoron. While the word refers to seemingly disparate ideas, this particular pupil took the word personally.
It is now the teacher’s job to explain that her eyes accidentally looked at the student when she said such a word and thus does not mean what the student thinks it does.
Who knew Darth Vader had it in him to teach middle school, or grade school, or high school.
Either way, this rare moment is proof that even evil can change to good. That is, if Darth Vader is teaching students the dark side of the force, then we are all screwed.
Die-hard Star Wars Fan
Fans of Star Wars are everywhere. This school is not exempt from geeky nerds who wear their Star Wars badges loudly and proudly.
Surprise, surprise, this teacher is announcing to the entire school how much he loves Star Wars by wearing a Storm Trooper helmet to the yearbook photo shoot.
These teachers can’t help but share their love for all things biology-related.
They love it so much they even included pictures of animals in their yearbook photoshoot. After all, yearbooks are once in a lifetime event.
Poets in a Yearbook
After science nerds and Star Wars fans, poets are next in the list of those people who can similarly be classified as die-hard weirdos.
But in this picture, no words are necessary. If a picture can paint a thousand words, this image will leave you speechless. It is unclear what the point of the bird is in the picture. Your guess is as good as mine.
Some students do call their teachers dummies behind their backs.
But this teacher seems to take that label so seriously he made an actual dummy of himself to fool unsuspecting students. Hopefully, this dummy would make students miss the real thing.
All Hail Satan?
This picture is an oxymoron. It indeed does not make sense if the dark lord of the underworld is using bubble letters to make his presence known.
But then again, Satan is not the king of deception for nothing. Could it be the bubble letters are a ruse to make us not think he is actually Satan? Isn’t Satan’s game to confuse us mortals and make us think he does not exist?
A Call for Help
Literally, this picture is of a teacher asking for help. It is rare for teachers to be this emotionally vulnerable. But here he is opening his heart to all of his students.
Though some may think he is a man who has got it together, underneath him is a simple man standing in front of a class, asking them to love him – or at least study, and study well.
The Truth Hurts
This statement is applicable to all students who had to cram for a test, homework, a paper, or an overdue project.
Though the truth hurts, the best thing anyone can do to not make this truth apply in their lives are the following: prepare days in advance, don’t cram, and study each day – not on the day of the exam itself.
Foot and mouth disease is a sickness that affects the swine population. Meanwhile, the expression ‘put your foot in your mouth’ denotes a social faux pas.
But is there a disease going around in academia that is causing teachers to put their entire hand in their mouth?
Apparently, the point of the mask is to hide the teacher’s face enough to not reveal his emotions when grading papers.
But then, the same goal would have been achieved by simply wearing dark glasses. Could the teacher be using grading papers as an excuse to wear an Ironman mask?
Too Cool for School
If talent shows that feature math wizards are entertaining, this teacher probably would have won the grand prize.
This math professor is grinning from ear to ear because he knows he did what only a few are capable of doing.
This teacher is brutally cold and frank, Pluto would have died in his below zero temperature arms – and Pluto is the coldest planet in the solar system.
Those who are in grief for Pluto’s now non-existent status, feel free to comfort yourself in the fact that Pluto may not have been a legitimate planet anyway.
If you’re into burnt pizza and love the taste of burnt crust, burnt cheese, and burnt pepperoni, you probably don’t love yourself.
Either that or it is highly likely you who cooked this pizza into burnt perfection. Ovens have timers, cellphones have timers, even television sets have timers.
Watch Me Meme
This teacher is speaking the language of the youth. Kudos to this teacher for making science 100% relatable to the millennial generation.
Who doesn’t understand memes? Incorporating lessons about the sun’s mortality into an entertaining meme deserves a Best in Teacher award.
This teacher is taking his job seriously. He is waiting for his student to come out of the restroom to teach his pupil a lesson.
It’s not just a job for this professor. He is helping save lives. At least for now, he is helping this student quit smoking.
The Knight Who Said “Ni”
This para-knight is in a classroom to hopefully inspire students to be interested in studying medieval England.
Or he could just be donning a costume for Halloween. Either way, this costume is not complete if he didn’t wear a British accent along with it - Old English to be exact.
This teacher has eyes in the back of his head. Specifically, this teacher has eyes installed in this drawing of him placed on the classroom board.
The resemblance is highly likely uncanny. If this doesn’t scare his students nothing will.
We long for the days where sleeping was not only part of our daily routines, just like back in kindergarten, but also actually part of the grading system.
I believe if that was the case I would get A+. Unfortunately, this is not the case, especially for Richone.
The Potty Poet
Step by step. It takes some time to master the art of poetry, but sometimes you just flow with your thoughts. Whatever those thoughts may be. It can be hard to filter oneself in a poem.
We would all love to know what Sandra let loose there in the middle of her poem. Clearly, it was enough to get a little written warning!
From the look of this review card, David is in kindergarten, and from the look of that alarming note, something unfortunate happened to David- and it involved lacking underwear. Hopefully, this card will end up in the right hands.
Underwear is crucial, to everybody. Let this be a lesson to David and his parents.
This kid has made quite the effort to stick to that home reading quota and has even gone above and beyond, even without Mondays! (Who can function on a Monday anyway?)
Something seems fishy with that teacher. Perhaps a personal vendetta against the parents? Either way, they didn't particularly bother with subtlety.
At first glance, this could look like a genuine apology for Demi's momentary melt-down.
Why, though, would the teacher want to pack these locks into a ziplock bag and send it back to the parents? Seems odd! Does she expect Demi's folks to glue it back in?
Who is the Real Teacher Here?
The lessons don't stop for lucky Dakota. He clearly has some talented parents and he's getting an education wherever he goes.
Whether that be in math or dance. Evidently, it has rubbed off on not only one of his classmates but on some of the teachers too!
Don't Try to Outsmart This Teacher
This kid thought he would try to get some sympathy from the teacher by drawing a sad little panda. Maybe this tactic works on the parents, or even some more forgiving teachers, but not on this one.
There is hope though! That panda frown can be turned upside down by just hitting the books.
Well That Was a Fail
So much for a final reflection essay. This teacher was clearly not that interested in the student's take on the class.
This weird attempt at a creative insult sort of fell flat. Not that the student seemed to be that concerned in the first place...
High on Conspiracy Theories
Teaching history to conspiracy theorists can be tricky. This teacher clearly lost patience with this student who evidently launched into an anti-holocaust theory.
We are all wondering how that meeting went down in the end. I think an appropriate punishment would be one whole year of historically accurate essays.
Is This a Pop Quiz?
Looks like this student had Beyonce on repeat while studying for this science test and it seeped into their mind. That explains this snappy answer that referenced the hit song. Pretty amusing if you ask us.
Kudos to the teacher who played along. While a point or two was deducted, this teacher certainly had the wherewithal to respond with a snappy answer.
Save the Personal Attacks
When in doubt, just make up your own answers. Honestly, this is a pretty silly question and the student probably thought it's best to just edit the test up a little.
It's safe to say that this kid is actually a little ugly. Good going, Judy.
An Interesting Kind of Volcano
Anyone who has seen Gary Busey in action knows that this answer is indeed correct. That actor does seem to be just moments from a massive explosion that will destroy the entire world in just one swift boom.
We are sure that even after scientists who have examined both Gary Busey and Yellowstone Park, will actually rethink their research.
Looks like this teacher and student had a nice little comic exchange on that test.
If J.K Rowling wrote Harry Potter on napkins, then maybe these two can collaborate on some comical scripts on class tests! Even if the answers are off, the teacher's notes are amusing.
The One-armed Butterfly Catcher Told Me So
Why listen to the biology teacher when you have your cartoon friend to teach you about genetics. Nothing says 'genetically intact' like a one-armed butterfly catcher anyway.
There was also a 50-50 chance that this teacher would have thrown this test straight into the trash. Guess the kid got lucky.
Teachers are often perceived as old and grumpy adults. The kind of people that make it easy for kids to mess with. It makes it all the more surprising when little kids leave shameless comments all over for their tests.
Whether or not the missing partial fractions made this kid fail in the end, the teacher blamed it on "Scumbag Steve" nonetheless!
We all went through a time in our lives where we weren't totally in charge of our own bodily functions, but there is something about this day sheet that is a little strange.
This toddler is definitely teaching themselves about all aspects of the human body and how it gets rid of waste.
Calling a Spade a Spade
Well, this teacher is just going, to be honest, and from the tone alone, it actually looks like he has lost all patience.
We all wish that Josiah will one day find the kind of work that he does find fun. It is after all the goal in everyone's life.
Well, we are not sure how this attempted kiss went down, but from the sad face, maybe it was a little problematic.
Is this teacher trying to keep these two love-birds apart, or are they trying to establish some classroom and cafeteria boundaries?
Mrs. Shapiro appears to value honesty above all else, even if it means ratting out little Charlie to his parents. The King Cake incident indeed sounds intriguing and his parents are surely in for quite the treat.
Let's just hope no one was hurt in the mysterious King Cake incident. Hmm...my imagination is already wandering. Good luck Charlie!
Finally, a shred of mercy was shown from a teacher.
This teacher is seemingly less bitter than the rest and has chosen not only not to deduct points off over a sweet little drawing, but also even added one. That is one happy little giraffe and student!
