What your teachers say-What they really mean

We at the Wonton Way know from teachers. We know that at times, the things they say can be downright cryptic. So we created this handy guide to help you understand the true meaning of the things your teachers tell you...

What Your Teachers Really Mean
When your teacher says:
They really mean:
We may have a test on this material...
You will definitely have a test, it will probably be hard, and it will most probably be tomorrow
I'm going to count to 3, and if you're not in your seat by 3, you're in big trouble!
The teacher doesn't know what to do to you if they do indeed get to 3, so they hope you just do what they say and sit down.
Today we will be expanding your skills by "peer editing"
I really don't feel like reading 100 of your reports, so I'll just make you do it for me
