"Hi. My name is Jake."
The boy held out his hand, so I shook it. It was passing period. Students filed into class. Instead of sitting, Jake put his backpack on his desk and proceeded to roam about.
Right before the bell, another boy walked in. He took Jake's seat. Not missing a beat, Jake grabbed his backpack and took a different seat.
In the lesson plan for the day, Ms. S warned me about only two students--Jake and Deon.
I addressed Deon by name and told both boys to sit in their proper seats. Deon claimed he was really Jake, and Jake asserted now that his name was Deon.
Which might have worked if Jake hadn't introduced himself to me. Which I pointed out.
(The rest of the class thought this was hilarious. They saw Jake introduce himself, so they knew Jake had blown it.)
