Your title got my attention right away. I had a counselor in high school named Mr. Manuel. This was a nice glimpse into the life and heart of a teacher. Love the last line.

As soon as I saw the description of PT I thought of Peter. But I didn't catch all the other names until I went back a second time. I'm so glad it wasn't blatant there. Al, Bart, Tommy ... "prove it" ... LOL Great stuff!

Clever and subtle. Well done. One ever so tiny criticism: when I read the first paragraph, I couldn’t understand why the teacher wasn’t allowed to tie his own shoelaces. A case of ambiguous pronouns that I sussed on the second reading. Otherwise very enjoyable
