  1. I was a high school math teacher and was tough. I actually made 32 different tests with 32 different answer keys to stop the kids from cheating. I simply changed the order of the answers or what was asked for. Those who actually read and did their own tests got a hundred and those who copied got zeroes. I let the ones who copied take a retest later but it taught them I did not want them to cheat.

  2. I have a math teaching certificate for Texas and taught 8th grade classes to complete my degree for a half a semester. That taught me I didn’t want to teach for a living.

  3. I was good at math but lazy in high school, so I would not do the homework. Always got A’s on the pop quiz’s and the tests but the teachers would only give me a B for the course because I did not do the homework.

    ….LOL great…in my architectural studies ,we had design tests, we had a couple of weeks to draw solutions to a given problem, as I was the fastest drafter , many wanted to look at my stuff before I turned it in…I did let them , but I always went a little extra , or beyond the scope and added in things…many copied those, or my stuff verbatim…then I turned my stuff in , a week later the others turned in their designs , many got the questions “where did you get the idea from to do this”? (my ‘extra stuff, not asked for) as the professor already had graded mine…lol
