Local Student Makes Brazen Attempt to Creep Teacher on Facebook


MOOSONEE: A student at the local high school in Moosonee made a bold attempt to locate her teacher on Facebook yesterday in an effort to discover personal details about the staff member. Sitting at her home computer after school, the grade 11 student typed in the name of her teacher in Facebook’s search field hoping for a social-taboo jackpot.

“I thought that I’d find crazy pictures and selfies of her doing all sorts of weird stuff,” the student told High School Breaking News, “but there were over 200 people with the same or similar name. I started browsing through the pictures, but there were so many.”

After an arduous attempt to locate her teacher in the list, the determined student made an on-the-spot decision on how to continue with her dangerous crossing of social boundaries. “I got bored of looking, so I decided I’d try again later,” the grade 11 student explained. “I mean, I don’t really care that much.”

Though it is impossible to collect accurate data on this disturbing trend in education, many estimate that “teacher creeping” is on the rise.

When told about the startling revelation about the student’s actions, Ms. Maria Gould, the grade 11 student’s teacher, had these remarks: “Oh, well yeah. That’s bound to happen I guess. No biggie. I don’t even have Facebook. Excuse me, though. I really need to go photocopy some stuff.”

So far, no disciplinary action has been taken against the grade 11 student who also admitted to Googling the teacher as well, but got distracted by an advertisement for “Candy Crush.”

Tie-Dye Lab Coat Fails to Motivate Students

MOOSONEE: Students at small high school in Northern Ontario are learning about the latest in science, participating in dynamic, hands-on labs, and are generally enjoying their science class with Mr. Marson. They are not, however, particularly motivated by his rainbow tie-dye coloured labcoat.

“I don’t really get it,” said one student as he gathered up his books from the lab counter at the end of class. “He’s a super-smart teacher, but that lab coat makes him look, kinda, I don’t know, not smart.”

Some have expressed concerns about the possible safety problems. “What if students are doing an experiment which involves open flames on a bunsen burner and then become hypnotized by the swirling rainbow colours of teacher’s lab coat?” asked one teacher who preferred to remain anonymous.

The heavily bearded science teacher explained that the tie dye lab coat was a gift from his science department head. “I think it was expensive, so I sort of feel an obligation to wear it once in awhile.”

Area Student Shocked at Grade Given for Assignment Cut and Pasted from Wikipedia

MOOSONEE: Becky Peraino, a grade 9 student at the local high school was shocked at the failing mark she was given for what she thought was clearly a quality research report written by a Wikipedia author. Peraino believes she did very well in the historic Canadian battle research assignment and that the teacher should reconsider the grade.

“It’s not fair!” said Peraino, “There’s a whole bunch of other students handing in really crappy research assignments that they wrote themselves and they get a better mark!”

Peraino argues that her assignment contained no spelling errors, used a high level of language, contained in-text citations to credible sources, and was written in clear, concise language. “What more could [the teacher] want?” she said.

The grade nine student also stated that she read “almost” the entire article she submitted and even glanced at a few others before making her final selection of the Wikipedia article.

“I did extra work too,” Peraino insisted. “When you cut and pas…

Area Students Unimpressed with Comic Sans Font in Teacher Slideshow

MOOSONEE: In a surprising turn of events last Thursday, students at the local high school were not impressed with their English teacher’s use of the iconic font Comic Sans in a PowerPoint presentation.

Trying to increase her use of modern educational technology in the classroom, Mrs. Tod attempted to be cutting-edge and relevant by setting all the text in her slideshow to Comic Sans.

“When I finally got the projector working with the help of a student, I was really excited to show the students the new font,” said the veteran English teacher. Feeling puzzled by their lack of a reaction, she pointed out the change to her class. “Look, I even used that cool font to make it more fun.” She paused, smiled, blinked a few times, and watched for the students’ reaction.

Rather than the elation that Tod expected, many of the students audibly sighed, rolled their eyes, or smacked their palms against their faces.

“I don’t understand,” she later said in an exclusive interview with ‘High School B…
