WASHINGTON - An AP physics teacher in D.C. has taken grading to another level.

David Hovan, who works at St. John's College High School in the District, was captured on video grading papers while he spins a basketball on a pen.

The reason for the quirk isn't clear, but The Washington Post reports Harlem Globetrotter Handles Franklin will pay the class a visit on Thursday. Then, Hovan will show off his spinning skills when the Globetrotters head to Verizon Center March 15.

No word on whether Hovan's skills extend to chopsticks or plates.

Check out the video below to see Hovan in action.
