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.
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.
(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.)
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.
Bad teacher =" Get over yourself and get to work or you will be in detention tonight. You stupid teenager."
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.
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!
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!
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!
