    I'd just up and leave. Make me.
    You would receive an internal exclusion for leaving a classroom without permission.

    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
    Maths. I went in through the PGCE route via university.

    Exactly, I used to say to my teachers, do they want me to piss here or in the toilet. They'd let me go.

    Wish I had the confidence to do that back then :moon:

    What's the worst thing a student has ever done to you?
    I've been assaulted twice. Once at each school that I've taught at.

    I don't want to go into any specific detail about either incident as I'm sure some of my students have TSR.

    Awesome and what is a PGCE like? What do you do during that year? Do you have to experience at a school and if so do you get to choose which school (or at least apply to ones yourself) you want to get experience at or do they choose a place for you to go?

    Don't want to be in your class anyway. I'd get you into trouble for not letting me go.

    PGCE is very tiring and there's a lot of boring lectures. You meet interesting people. You don't get a choice of school but it will be local. You can express a preference but they can't guarantee it.

    I'd imagine I'm quite Marmite. There's a few girls who despise me and a few boys who've said I'm boring and stuff. There are some students who like me though.

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

    Also what are the best academics a student you taught has achieved.
    I've taught some A* students before. I'm British so the best uni any of them have gotten into is UCL.

    Do you agree that uni is a waste of time unless you go to the unis I mentioned as well as Oxbridge and lse?

    I plan on going to Wolverhampton Uni to do BEd Primary Ed, 3yr course, at the end I will gain QTS, does this mean I can start teaching straight after uni?

    It's their choice. Standards are quite low so I don't blame them for being angry. Admittedly, it's not something I know everything about still.

    Similar things have happened before to me. The most important thing is to not over react or to react in a way that the students would find funny; easier said than done.

    No because you might want a degree like Speech and Language Therapy or Agriculture in which case other unis are just as good if not better.

    No I don't think violence is ever justifiable. If we teach children that we can get what we want by using intimidation and fear then that's wrong. I would much rather have a positive relationship with my students.

    I'm not sure to be honest. All the people I know who are primary teachers all did a 4 year course.
