Update on cheaters

Well one of the cheaters is back in class and sitting in the front of the class… before I even asked him to. I think he is the more disciplined of the two because he is a football player and he has a scholarship riding on his grades; so he will put up with more then the other guy.

I will do what I can to help him be successful if he put forth the effort.

The other guy never showed up after Spring Break. That is OK with me because he is a royal pain. Always late, always disruptive and nothing is ever his fault. So, asta la vista baby.

I did give them both a zero on the entire exam and I also turned them in to the dean, so each was given a talking to and a letter in their file.

I HATE cheaters.

Oh yes, and the other guy, the one that just signed the fill in the blank part of the exam. Well he is like gum on the bottom of your shoe; he just won't go away. He was absent before Spring Break and missed Monday, but he was back in his seat today, seating there like he was passing the course.

I went over to see if he was working on the assignments and he was of course surfing the net. "Do you have your book?" I asked, and he looked at me so proud and said, "Yes right here in my back pack. "

"Well try using it," I said, "the information is not going to fly into your head." He looked like I was really putting him out asking him to READ THE BOOK.
