    Do you think it's weird or good to date a fellow teacher at your school. In my school, a lot of the teachers that are now married or dating met working at my school. aaw cute
    I think it would be really cute if I fell in love with another teacher. Hasn't happened yet and most are off limits anyway.

    You avoided my question on how to be the super awesome teacher everyone likes. :sad:
    I guess it's not one I can answer.

    Well that's a bit stupid. What if they're properly at each other? Surely they shouldn't have a problem with it as your actually protecting them from themselves.
    Best to not get involved still, for your own good.

    Teacher is 10 times heavier workload than the PGCE.

    As my username suggests, I am indeed autistic (Asperger's). Not hugely severe though but I do have social difficulties (very rigid thought) and difficulty with seeing things from another perspective, if that makes sense.

    Are the maths and science departments at each other's throats in your school like they were in my old one before I went to uni?

    Is it still de rigueur to belittle and browbeat gifted left handers like myself to switch to their right hand for hand writing or are teachers now largely just glad if their young charges manage to write anything at all even if it is by clutching a fat crayon between their toes?

    So why did you decide to make a TSR account then? Or did you make it when you were a student but you still use it now?

    Year 9 girls are, on the whole awful; rude, defiant and foul-mouthed. They also have a pack mentality and stick up for each other when one gets told off.

    I like to have a positive relationship with my students but I accept that there will always be some students who bear grudges and don't like me. I'm not too bothered about them.

    All students should at least try their best to participate. I do incorporate really easy questions into my lessons which are intended to be ones that even the shy students wouldn't mind having a go at.
