Proper repair

Illustration for article titled Proper repair

This popped up in my FB feed from several years ago, but I thought Oppo would appreciate it. I was assisting a student in using the miter saw, when a female student came up to me and whispered, “Mr. Shop Teacher, the back of your pants is torn.”


I thanked her and retreated to my store room, and the seam on the side of the pocket had split wide open. I reached for the only duck tape I had, this fetching checkerboard pattern, and put a piece on the inside and the outside of the seam, and then went back to teaching. I had at least 3-4 more hours of teaching to do after that.

That student instantly became my favorite.
