I don't put the tape on the pencils. I have a student do that. In fact I
try to
have students do everything. The most work I do is trying to figure how to
get out of working. (Woody)

Legally I don't believe I'm allowed to sell anything to students. Other
teachers do
but I have always tried to obey even the dumb laws. If I had permission
to sell
them I would be required to write a receipt for each one. I would also
need to turn
the money into my school treasurer every evening. Then I would have to
go through
the purchase order system to spend any of the funds. It's easier to buy
a gross of
pencils from time to time.
