Just say that "I'm not in the mood to do it now. Or I'm not feeling it today. Or say Let's move on to another trick"

the thing is, i try NOT to show them. When i show someone else, he usualy says, in a loud voice might i add, "WHOA! your good at magic tricks!" then one of them comes over and you get the picture.

Then don't perform at school. If you're having such a problem, just perform somewhere else.

learn some other effects with a pen/pencil.

act like you're going to do pen through dollar, but then do the other effect.

Like I said, just stop performing. School isn't a very good place to perform anyways.

yeah, thats good advice. magic should be done for peoploe who want to be entertained, not for jerks who want to expose you. If you have to perform for them, dont use gimmicks, or do some sucker tricks and make them feel like idiots. This is a great thing to do because it gets the rest of the crowd to turn against the heckler. Once you have the crowd on your side, the heckler is finished.
