    Have you ever been bullied by young girls in your lessons ?
    Yes, Year 8 girls with their pack mentality...

    Are GCSEs important?
    They're more important for the school than they are for the students generally.

    Has a kid in your class ever wrote a story about his family hunting a werewolf?
    No.

    Are there any students you dread teaching?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Yes, several. I tend to find the girls are worse than the boys as it's always more personal. Boys are just silly on the whole but not malicious.

    Have you ever taught anyone that got in Ivies+Stanford+MIT?

    Also what are the best academics a student you taught has achieved.

    Also have you ever heard the line, "If you were a piece of homework I'd do you on the table"-not sure what that means :?

    Would you ever date one of your students if they tried to make a move?

    Absolutely not.

    What do you think of teacher student relationships?

    They're creepy at best.

    Why do you think people express the view that they don't like you being near children on here?

    I am concerned about the well-being of children as much as anyone else. To be honest, people are trying to create a drama when it isn't there.

    What made you decide to teach ?
    I had an inspiring teacher at school. I realised it was the best way to apply my skills and my work ethic is, without meaning to be arrogant, quite exceptional.

    Not if you've just come from break. You had 20 minutes to go to the toilet. Now write the title and date for heaven's sake.

    No, not really. Children are too variable - one day they're an angel, and the next they're a terror. Even the good kids are too variable.

    Put them in another classroom.

    I don't find that surprising, the girls in my year often say bad things about male teachers. There was what looked like a glue stain on our Geography teacher's carpet and all of a sudden he was a chronic masturbator in his spare time!

    Okay. I don't get on that well with some.

    Was teaching what you expected it to be?

    It's tougher than I thought it would be.

    What would you do if I didn't do my homework? :teehee:
    Detention if it's 2 missed in a row.

    Do you have favourites? Which are your favourites? I've found it's usually the loud pretty girls
    Why would it be them?

    Does it give you thrills being able to dictate when someone can have a piss?

    edit: I've hit a cord with the masses here.

    This is a first.
    What subject? How did you get into teaching, what was your process.

    I want to become a teacher when I'm older so would love to ask some questions

    Girls can be incredibly nasty and their mums can often be worse! Parent's evenings can be awful for the teacher!

    I've had nasty rumours spread about me (I won't go into any detail as I'm paranoid that some of my students have TSR). They also try to use their period as an excuse to go to the toilet all the time - I'm sorry but you can't all be on your period at the same time and I swear you were all on it 10 days ago!!

    Exactly, I used to say to my teachers, do you want me to piss here or in the toilet. They'd let me go. I never needed to go.

    Do you ever feel guilty that some of the material you are teaching will never be useful for the students future?
    The curriculum is what it is. I imagine teachers of most subjects have that issue. In maths, there is a lot of stuff not directly relevant. I don't dwell on it though.
