Honest response from a high school teacher here: you have no idea how hectic (the start of) a lesson can be. You need to let everybody shut up, sit decently on the right places, let them take their books and their journal, ask and answer not-course-related questions, give warnings to those who disobey the rules, give punishments to those who disobey the warnings... A pupil needs to pay attention to the teacher. A teacher needs to pay attention to all the pupils - up to 20 human beings with their own background and personality. Mistakes are made, things forgotten, but please, unless we're always batshit crazy, don't hate us for it.

#39 I remember a lot of shit that happened when I was 7. I remember one day, at the start of the year, she had to show us things like the hall, and in the hall was a giant projector screen and she was too short to reach the bottom of it. I laughed and she yelled at me :(

45, The only way I could see myself manage such a group is by letting them all work individual, learning the theory by themself and saying 'I sit here if you need me!'. That's not teaching, that's fancy babysitting.

My first memory was from when I was about 3-I was walking up my house stairs so my parents could put me to bed. My baby sister was screaming at the time ~ As for 7 year old memories, I have plenty xD In response to the original person, my Philosophy teacher absolutely despises kids. She only likes to teach ages 14-18 xD I go to a secondary school

Wow sorry op I'm sure we can all recall a teacher that made our skin crawl. Next time try using the, " i need to use the bathroom" excuse. Don't worry you'll only have her for a school year. Bon chance!

hopefully :( in middle/high school and university I had the same teachers over. and over. and over. it was terrible, cause if you started out on the wrong foot with anyone, it affected everything.

You know that meme of that one guy with the bad hair and it says, "aliens"? I wish I could post it here as a response. Sorry, was a response to #8 and can't remove it now.
