Just wanted to find out how many teachers there are here and if any of you would be interested in teacher specific posts? I was thinking along the lines of resource recommendations, sharing lesson plans, ideas and water-cooler reflections. Anyone keen? If you're a teacher a reply with the area you're working in would be appreciated.
are you a teacher then
I was teaching English as a second language in Japan for a few years and I'm now teaching high school English in Australia.
Some teachers are nice, but then again some are real faggots. We once had this teacher who was such a b**** our class filed a complaint to the principal about her. Everyone f***ed around in her class, she threatened to slap me once.
I'm a teacher. But I teach adults, not kids. Adults that pay good money to be there, so it's much nicer (I would imagine), than teaching at a grade/high school or college, where people are largely there because they have to be there.
What about a forum about school/learning, both for teachers and students? Because there are way more students than teachers, so a forum for teachers only would be quite empty.
well, i'm not a teacher, but I'd still be interested in reading the posts as long as the thread is interesting. I have to second the comment made Bondings, it seems that a lot more students are signed on at fri-host and we'd all be interested in joining a forum that would also be geared towards the studentry.
Besides, sharing ideas, plans and strategies also sounds good. I mean even if you're not a teacher it isn't illogical to be able to think that you'd be using what you've learned even in forums as the one you seem to be interested in.
I just thought a bit about this. There are like 20-30 students per teacher on average. It's quite normal that students are in the majority.
However, strategies on how to cheat during exams are not a good idea to share with teachers.
No cheating! Just lots of "helpful advice"!
Yeah high school teachers are outnumbered, overworked, underpaid and unappreciated, why the hell would anyone want this c#@p job? Well it does allow for long holidays plus it's easy to get work overseas especially as an English as a Second Language teacher.
Working as an ESL teacher lets me work with adults and yeah it makes a big difference when the students want to be there.
I am a sixth grade English teacher adn I would be interested. I have only been teaching for a few years, so I may not have much to offer you veterans, but I would be happy to participate as much as possible.
It's interesting for those of us contemplating becoming teachers.
Or who harbour secret teaching desires.
I was a uni lecturer for a while & I have to agree. When the students WANT to be there it makes life a lot easier. No way could I ever work as a school teacher. I'd end up throwing the kids through walls!
