• Why didn't the principal tell the teacher he was wrong?

    So my cousin went crazy at school last week because a teacher put one of those cart machines in her backpack.

Then after the teacher left he was saying how wrong the teacher was. This is the problem with schools. The teachers no matter how wrong they are are never told they are.

  • Teacher thinks I cheated?

    So I was taking a test today in English, (not really even a test, more a quiz) but when i was done, i turned in my test and then i leaned over and asked the girl next to me what to do when we are done.

The teacher saw me and stood right next to me the rest of the time. I assume she thinks i cheated, but she never said anything to me. I wouldn’t really worry about this but I already got suspended for a few days this year for cheating on a biology test. I wasn’t cheating, do you think she will even say anything to me? Any help appreciated!

    I am entering the workforce as a teacher. I'm wanting to know if the outfit in the picture is practical to wear as a teacher. I fully understand that heels are not something that are always practical but I'm more focused on the outfit itself.

  • How long does it take you to get used to a teacher/class?

    At the beginning of the school year(this is for high school students) or a new semester, and you get a new teacher. How long before you get used to them and their class?

  • Will my attendance policy encourage students to come to class, or will it encourage them to skip?

    I had a real hard time keeping my attendance up last semester. I had an atypical attendance policy of 20 points out of 100, which I thought was high. I guess maybe the students thought it was odd and didn't take me seriously henceforth (shrugs). This 20 points included in-class work and time on task. By... show more
    I had a real hard time keeping my attendance up last semester. I had an atypical attendance policy of 20 points out of 100, which I thought was high. I guess maybe the students thought it was odd and didn't take me seriously henceforth (shrugs). This 20 points included in-class work and time on task. By midterms, I was down to less than half the class showing up despite working on MML (online HW). It was ridiculous. I had to change my whole policy to avoid dropping everyone by the time finals came around, since everyone showed up for the final exam (as well as the other 3 exams). This semester I want to try something different. Every unexcused absence will result in a reduction of the maximum attainable grade. The class meets 32 times. 1 absence : max grade = 97 percent. 2 absences: max grade = 94 percent. 3 absences: max grade = 91 percent. etc... What do you think of this system? Do you think it is actually going to ENCOURAGE absences, because the student might think "oh, I can have 10 unexcused absences and still get a C in the class, so f* it"? Please help. FYI, I am sorta reconsidering my career, in care you're wondering.

    Hello. I have a math degree and am planning on starting a program to become a high school mathematics teacher. This is because I like math and numbers, would like a job working with kids instead of sitting in front of a computer all day, would like to coach sports teams, and would love to have summers off. However, I kind of believe that teaching math to high schoolers is pointless since they will likely never use the material being taught. I think teaching students how to think about the world in a mathematical way and the math of personal finance is important, but teaching algebra (ex. how to solve for x using the quadratic formula) and geometry (ex. how to use the pythagorean theorem) is completely pointless. And quite frankly I would feel guilty making them learn this stuff as I think it would be misleading to imply that they would ever need to know it. However, I would be required to teach this material as a math teacher. So my question is, what do you think I should do? Should I not become a high school teacher even though I think I would enjoy my life much more as one? Or should I become one since if I don't do it somebody else would anyway? Or should I consider teaching middle or elementary school (where I believe that the math taught IS in fact important). Anyway, I would just like some feedback on this issue.

    I am an 8th grade science teacher, I just started working at this school on Monday for the new semester because the other math teacher quit I guess. So I am the new teacher and I really hate this school. The reason I took this job is because I thought this would be a better opportunity because it's a charter school but I was wrong. My students don't like me. They say that they miss their old teacher and yesterday they were throwing carrots at my desk and they play music loud in class. I also don't like the principal at this school. I feel like she's against me. She doesn't like me. What should I do? Should I quit? Now I know exactly why their old teacher quit.

    Here is the email I sent her: Hi, I'm confused if the quizzes and the activities are part of the final grade because it doesn't say so in the syllabus. Are they part of the final grade and if so how many points are they? Thanks in advance. Here is the reply I got from the teacher: Welcome to the course. The Learning Application Activities are activities that support the learning process. If you were meeting in a live class type section. They are indirectly related to grades, like participation type points. Hope that helps. Is she saying that it is part of the final grade or not? The way she words it is kind of confusing.
