might not admit it in public, but Malik is her closest
pal. Because of his long dreadlocks, pre-pubescent voice and cherubic
face, Malik could be mistaken for a girl. But don't let the smooth taste
fool ya: Mailk is one of the 'hardest' boys at George Washington
Jackson Jr. Middle school--or at least that's what he thinks.

the brightest kids in the 7th grade--and highly respected by Whitney--but

Quibly is GWJJ's English teacher, gym instructor and resident
hunk. He serves as a father figure for many of the school's students
and is extremely peaceful and caring. Only foolish pupils take this
as a sign of weakness, however, because when provoked, the 6'4"
240 pound Quibley can make any class quiver in fear. He takes pride
in his star students and Whitney is no exception, she and Malik are
two of the most decorated students in his class.
Quibly is popular among female students and staff, but his biggest fan

of the notorious Cash twins and Peabody boys, Quibly is the person most
likely to be called to the principal's office.

would do to her figure, which she keeps a close eye on.
figure that Arnetta has her eyes set on is Mr. Quibley.
