Teachers are people who have chosen the profession of (hopefully) imparting knowledge, creating understanding, assisting in application of the knowledge and understanding, and assisting & motivating kids to attain higher-level thinking skills.
Most of those I know are caring, dedicated and work 11 months a year (yes, during the summer) and 7 days a week, 12 hours a day M-F during the school year.
Of course, as with any profession, you have lame-os and deadbeats.
The pay sucks if you work in one of the "Education? Why Bother?" states, like Arizona.
But, watching kids actually try to learn, take standardized test after test (thank you GWBush) and still maintain a sense of humor and enthusiasm makes it worthwhile.
On the downside: Parents who are less than useless, kids who are totally unmotivated and chose to destroy the learning environment and the administration that supports that (thankfully not all administrators are like that) for fear of Karla's mom getting angry that Karla won't be moving to 8th grade... Yes, in Arizona if the kid fails every class and misses 85 days of school, the parent can override the teachers' recommendations to retain the kid.
Julio wrote a letter that said, "If it weren't for my teachers, I'd think all adults were drug addicts and losers."
Pretty cool! My teachers lined up on the last day of school so we could throw pies in their faces!
I have had some astoundingly good teachers and some abysmally bad teachers.
The contributors for some of these "teachers" entries really should have been paying attention to their teachers, then wouldn't look like such asswipes by their horrid use of language and spelling skills which testify to their dumbfuckery.
A person who cares enough about abusive and ungrateful teens to work for crappy pay and long hours while hoping someday students mature enough to realize how lucky they are to have someone who gives a shit about them.
My teacher may have been a bitch sometimes, but she never gave up on me and I'm happy about that.
Good teachers are people dedicated to the education of students in their classrooms and to the institutions in which they work.
(Unfortunately, many of the contributors to this term don't seem to have encountered many good teachers. However, don't give up on learning because eventually several good teachers will show up.)
If you can read this, thank a teacher.
Good teacher = Someone that cares about her/his students and tries there hardest to have there students leave at the end of the school year knowing something that they taught them.And get paid crap only like $35,000 an year.
Bad teacher = A teacher who don't give a crap about there students and give like 4 hours of homework. And for some reason it seems like they get paid more.
Good teacher ="You know if you EVER need to talk to someone I'm always here for you."
Bad teacher =" Get over yourself and get to work or you will be in detention tonight. You stupid teenager."
An underpaid person that tries to educate kids. But can't. Because:
1. Kids are not allowed to be beaten.
2. Parents in America are useless and don't beat their kids.
3. Rap music.
4. Cell phones.
The kids passed on into the next grade, even though they couldn't read or write.
We wouldn't want them to feel left out and hurt their feelings, so we pushed them through anyways.
The future of America is looking pretty sweet!
A person who works his/her butt off preparing for students and trying to help them get a head start in life. They work for little pay, and are spoken poorly about by people ignorant of their cause. As with all people, some care more than others. But they still do more than the average onlooker observes.
A teacher can be found planning lessons, grading papers, researching activities, going to meetings, calling homes, greeting people, tolerating bullcrap, rationalizing, destressing, parenting for parents who don't know how to or don't give a damn about parenting.
There are 2 different kind of teachers:
1)Caring people who really want to help you learn and grow they want you to be ready to go out in the real world. They really do care about you but some teens jump to conclusion thinking that they dont care because they are being snappy one day out of a whole year. They have familys and problems just like the rest of us. They cant be perfect they are only human.
2)Dickfaces who live to terrorize kids lives. Usually men or old women. They say they care just so they can fuck with your mind but then go tell the whole staff about it and then you end up getting a phone call home and your parents find out about it and then you have all this drama shit on your hands. Until a #1 teacher tries to help you fix it!
1) Right now i have two teachers like this. Who really care and i know they care. Conversation between student and teacher
Student-Can i talk to you?
Teacher-Sure sit down. What is it?
Student-Well...blah blah blah *tear tear*
Teacher-Oh im so sorry. i know that things that happen in life make you a better stronger more mature person and i believe you are one of those stronger more mature people. Always remember you can talk to me about ANYTHING and EVERYTHING.
Student-Thanks! You really do care dont you!!
2)i dont have an example for fuckers like this...they just suck!
People who liked school so much that they couldn't stand to leave.They 'have a passion for kids' and could never regret following the career path they chose.
They think that everyone likes them no matter what. Truthfully, nobody likes them at all.
Teachers are fun to annoy.
*Ways To Annoy Your Teachers:
1. Don't write your name on your papers.
2. Ask a lot of pointless questions that have nothing to
do with what you are learning. (ex: Why do you write
with a blue pen instead of a black one?)
3. Mumble LOUDLY to yourself while you are taking a test.
4. Role your pencil on your desk.
5. Refuse to answer questions out loud (on accout that it
conflicts with your religious beliefs).
6. Refer to your teacher as Sir or Mam. End every sentence
with Sir or Mam. (ex: The answer to number 13 is 9, Sir)
7. Don't pay attention. Say 'what?' everytime they call on
