Teacher flunks spelling

It appears little Nicholas does so well in school that his kindergarten teacher has made up a whole new word to congratulate him for his achievements.

"Is it a combination of terrific and perfect?" asks writer Amanda Gillooly, who submits this photo of her nephew's report card.

The kid from a Pittsburgh suburb is awesome enough to rate his own language. Better yet, he needs to find a teacher who can spell.

Nicholas is going to be so happy he made TWAB again :)

He should also be glad that his work has triggered a new word in the English lexicon: From now on, all superior students shall now be known as Terfect!
