I will kill my students some day (Page 3)
Gala_: I have sent students home, with a note for their parent, to assure they will dress more appropriately when they return with the Note to me. Just try doing that too. All schools have a Dress Code - and clearly you teachers need to enforce it.
maxwellion: Hi everyone, I am a teacher also. Its a wonderful job but a really challenging one... I have just had the hardest year of my life this year. But Im still here and not going anywhere... I always tell any teacher who is at the recieving end of a lot of difficulty... step back.. calm down and remember why you decided to be a teacher... And focus on the little successes you have each day!
How many years have you been teaching? I am just finishing 19 and loving every minute of it.
maxwellion: HI Bella, thank you for the questions.. I have been teaching for 5 years... I love it also.. Its great to see that teachers still have the passion after 19 years. I hope that I am like that after 19 years.. This year has been the toughest year but I still have the passion.
bella1007: I cant imagine doing anything else. My passion is math and I love building confidence in the students that think they can't do it. I purposely don't teach the higher levels, because I like to help those that struggle.
maxwellion: I teach 11 - 18, I teach history, religion and geography.. What about yourself Black heart?
Gala_: well, I "used" to teach at the HIgh school level, working with the kids who got kicked out of class (Guidance and Resource) then I worked with a Special needs Student at the University level for 5 years, then taught Junior High and High school.......all courses except french ...................then changed to just subbing, and now I am retired. So, I have had experience teaching in all levels.....ranges Currently I am retired! from teaching anyway
adamleath27: i will kill my students someday, school not safe anymore, put a due-rag on and sell dope, i mean its 2012. its changed from "land of oppertunity" to "gansta paradise"
marybenjamin20: if u dont mind adam, i could use whatever weapon ur using to kill some of my students too......
PRINCESS LOUISE: That's professional. "I will kill my students one day". Where does Ontario get these teachers.
ohnonotthatguy: hahahah at Princess "That's professional"
Wow teachers on this post behaving like JK/SK children
Some educators were/are and always will not be suitable to teach in any kind of classroom,for some reason or another.
When such bad teachers are mentioned to the Principal of school by parents and students the matter never goes past that office and the teacher never punished for their acts or actions
from school board directors all the way down to the janitor they all belong to the same Union,so nothing is ever done.
Education starts at home with the parents and child
I have raised 3 children most of their life's on my own,youngest one a teenager now and never they have disrespected a teacher nor authority figures.
Teachers have to captivate students minds,make the class fun so those young brains stay focus in the classroom.
Parents need to control and educate their children at home right after they come home as babies from the maternity ward ,schools are not daycare centers and teachers are not nannies.
Laws must change to a keep up with the times of the unruling,disrespectful young criminals that occupy a classroom desk in front of a teacher every single day.
Gala_: I say, drug test all the students, and make them blow to see how much alcohol they have in their system. Hate when a child comes to school, stinking like POT - wonder how that kind of second hand smoke affects the young minds? Should those kids be targeted as "drug carriers"........so many issues to ponder - when teaching.
Maybe its time some of the children, control and educate the parents!! With parents like that, what do you expect of our children?

Gala_: sure hope the Chick who started this forum got fired. What a horrible topic to post here......
action99: Hello! I am from Dominican Republic and I teach English as a second language from 9th to 12th grade. I really enjoy my job. If you want to be a better teacher, you need to share personally all your experience with many other experienced teachers. When they listen to you they are going to give advice for your mistakes. Remember humans are not perfect. So you only need to teach regardless perfection. good luck!
Renaissance_Man: Converstation title: "I will kill my students some day"
"AndieLu: I am not violent at all"
Seems a contradiction....
samanthareina: I get what andie is saying. When a student can hit a teacher or make a false statement to get them fired, that student needs to get busted and kicked out of school. At my school, the student may get suspended for a day for those things. Kids smoke pot in class and the teacher calls for security, nothing happens. The school cops are a joke, a total waste of money, yet they lay off teachers and keep these lazy ass clowns around. Security does nothing. the principal just sits around and jokes. Only ones trying are the teachers. I hate school because nothing ever happens to the people who ruin it. I have only had 1 or 2 teachers that are truly bad and I am in a nasty ghetto school.
