Measuring Up...


As a teacher, I have had some funny moments in my classroom. From kids spelling corner curner to being called Kim Possible’s Naked Mole rat, on some days, the laughs just keep coming. But today simply took the cake. A student was in my class playing with a ruler while I was presenting a lecture on speech analysis. I walked over to the student, grabbed the ruler, and got the shock of my life. This was no regular ruler. This was a “Peter Meter.” With tape on the front, the ruler had drawn on dicks at several inches starting at five, which equaled lame on the “Peter Meter” and ended at 10, which equaled wow on the “Peter Meter.” Poor boy, I thought to myself. 12’s really do exist.

O-M-G! Hilarious — I can imagine it taking your breath away! My boyfriend is a teacher, and I'm somewhat jealous of the crazy moments you all get to witness, even though teaching isn't all fun and games. Keep up the great work.

That does not surprise me that one or more of your students would have such an item and actually know what it means, kids today have far more knowledge than children of yesteryear.

I am certain that you teach on the Elem level and not Secondary level. Keep your composture and speak with the students in reference to this and that might even require a parental permission slip.
