The day I returned after having a sub, several desks sported fresh initials written in red magic marker - "MCN".
I thought it was really someone's initials, so I looked through all my classlists to see if I could place him/her. Yes, kids who graffiti are sometimes that dumb as to put their actual guilty information on the graffiti.
A student informed me, however, that it was not a person's initials, but rather the initials of a gang called "Murder City N******". Some research on the web revealed these guys to be Bloods. It was written in red, after all.
No amount of scrubbing with strange chemicals swiped from the janitor's closet could get the magic marker off the desk. After several different attempts at eliminating the gang graffiti, it had barely faded.
So before parents came in for Parent-Teacher conferences, I decided to just change the graffiti. Instead of "MCN," it now says "I (heart) my MOM." The handwriting doesn't match up as well as I'd like, but I did my best.
