I feel so old reading all of your posts about high school and college life. I've been teaching high school English for 5 years now, myself. If any of you wants to ask a teacher a question about why we do what we do, or anything like that, fire away. I'll try to answer every question... At least, until I get bored with this.

Absolutely. Don't believe it when teachers say that they like all of their students equally... All teachers hate at least some of their students.

Yes but you don't say "I hate children..." to the class every day like my precalc teacher did.

....do you?

How's the California school system? Do you teach public or private school?

How old are you? I mean, you could just be 27. And don't worry, I'm sure you're not older than Mr. K.

<<Do you play Pokémon?>>
I play occasionally. I did manage to get through Sapphire over the summer break.

<<How's the California school system? Do you teach public or private school?>>
The CA school system is one of the poorest in the country. Our test scores suck monkeys. I teach at a large public high school.

<<How old are you?>>
I'm 26 years old. I'll be turning 27 soon. The problem is I look young enough that some of the students think I'm their age. One of my female students even tried asking me to prom one year!

Apparently our teacher has forgotten about that little Edit button.

Also, are students really as lazy and undeserving as we seem?

Are you one of those English Teachers who teach their students how to do a Body Paragraph dance?

Do you know what I speak of when I say the following? "BT, CD, CM, CM, CD, CM, CM, CS"

Also, despite what my location claims, I'm from San Diego... county.

Do you think its your fault when A student turns into a burn out?

Do you like teaching?(Since you quote Dilbert I'm going to guess no.)

Does it piss you off when kids just don't fucking get it?

Do you teach the fag style why of writing an essay like they do in New York. In English 3-6 in my school they teach you how to write an essay that will be perfect for the regents with little creativity involved, do they do that in California.

Recommend me a book to read, but it can’t be a book that you teach in high school.

Kind of an odd, unrelated question... But, anything's fair game. I listen to rap if it's witty and has a nice beat. (Snoop, Eminem, Dre... stuff like that.) I also enjoy a good, loud rock song from time to time. I currently have Jimmy Eat World's "Bleed American" in my truck.

"Do you think its your fault when A student turns into a burn out?"
Why would that be my fault? If they make their own bed, they can lie in it.

"Do you like teaching? Since you quote Dilbert I'm going to guess no."
Teaching has it's moments. It does get stressful at times, but you can't beat a job with 3 months of paid vacation every year.

"Does it piss you off when kids just don't fucking get it?"
Sometimes. If a kid genuinely doesn't get it, I try to help. Most of the time the kid chooses to "not get it."

"Do you teach the fag style why of writing an essay like they do in New York. In English 3-6 in my school they teach you how to write an essay that will be perfect for the regents with little creativity involved, do they do that in California. "
We don't teach a standard format for essay writing at my school. I do teach writing techniques that have been proven to work, but it's generally not a requirement.

My mom teaches Honors English III and AP English at my high school. She was the only one that taught these classes (and probably the only English teacher in my high school that was capable of doing so). Since she was the only one that could teach those classes, I had her for two years straight. Would you be able to survive having your 17-year-old son in class? My mom hardly did.

Sadly, I haven't had the opportunity to teach honors (read: motivated) students. Those classes go to the teachers with seniority. [Frown]

Um... let's see... I'm 27... My kid would be 17... Next Question! Seriously, I think it would be strange having my kid in class. I once worked as a substitute teacher in a class where there was a 17 year old girl I had partied with the previous weekend. It was kind of strange being an authority figure to someone I had just seen downing beers and Jell-O shooters.

It was kinda fun. I was the only one that could get away with making fun of her. Yeah, she did grade me harder than everyone else, but that's alright, still ended up with decent grades in her classes.

I majored in English. (c/o '98 at University of the Pacific) I decided pretty early on to go into teaching. I liked the schedule it offered and I liked the fact I could stay in the area. If only I'd been as popular with the cheerleaders when I was in school as I am now. [Wink]

Do you...

a)Teach in the inner city, work with 7 of 9, and have crazy controvertial shit happen all the time like in Boston Public?

b)Teach in the inner city and have annoying smart students like in Head of the Class?

If "a", do you pack heat? 'Cause them inner city kids is crazy.

If "b", do you pack heat? 'Cause them honors kids on that show need to be shot. 'Cept the fat dude. He was cool.

No, I wouldn't call my school an "inner city" school. We are in an urban area, but it's a far cry from New York or Los Angeles. Most of my students are white or Asian, and a smaller percentage are black or Hispanic.

No clue on that one. For every intelligent woman who loves to read good stuff, there's one who likes crap. The same principle applies to movie goers. It's the reason why Vin Diesel has a career. [Cool]

I like Vin Diesel, but I appreciate that he's not a good actor [Razz]

Anyway, question. Are all English teachers obsessed with sex?

I had three teachers for English Lit in the last two years, each for a separate 'section'. The first year we studied "Knowledge of Angels" by some...woman whose name I forget. Jill Paton Walsh there we go. Anyway, there is NO sex throughout the whole book apart from in ONE chapter. And the chapter's two pages long and really quite detailed, but not pornographic. We spent fucking AGES "discussing" Chapter 22 and like no time on the rest of the book. Same with Chaucer's "Wife of Bath's Prologue and Tale"...we had to translate literally, and when one of the girls in my class didn't want to read part of her translation out in class ('queynte,' literally translates to 'cunt' as far as I know, in that context), our teacher then spent the next ten minutes discussing the word and it's meanings and the text surrounding it. Those are just examples, it was more of an all-round air of "We're Obsessed" in the english department. It's a running joke in my school that we mock them about it, too.

Do all english teachers therefore focus on the innuendo/sex/"rude bits" in literature? Or do all the horny ones congregate at my particular school... [Confused]

Has anyone ever attempted to bribe you for a higher grade or something?

And are you a 'cool' teacher? Meaning, do you let students slide on certain things and bend certain rules? Or are you a hardass Nazi who is feared by all his students?

Would you ever add "-Dawg" at the end of one of your student's names? That happened to me during my Freshmen year, and the teachers still do it. It has spread to the students.

I think the female ones may be... I had a few sexually repressed teachers in college that might support your theory. We don't get into too much human sexuality in my class... I wouldn't want a parent complaining or anything.

I can honestly say I've never used "-Dawg" when referring to anyone. Except for my dog, and I call him "Rock." (He's the People's Champion!) [Big Grin]

I have had female students suggest "extra curricular activites" to bring their grades up in class. It is definitely a very tight rope to walk on in those situations. You have to maintain a professional distance from the girl, while every bone in your body is dying to take her up on her offer. It helps having a beautiful g/f to come home to every evening.

I do consider myself to be a "cool" teacher. I remember what it was like to be in school, and I take my students into consideration before making major assignments and things like that. I'll often skip homework assignments on big game days or school dance nights.

Well, I've rescued the President's daughter countless times on "Dynamite Cop." But, then again... I couldn't save Aeris no matter how hard I tried. I'd just send Johanna Dark and Solid Snake in to do the job right.

Will you make up a themesong for one of your fellow staff members, annoy them with the song all year, and then near the end of the year, the staff member makes a student write up a themesong for you and sings it?

That's what happened at my school. I wrote the song too... 2 years ago, in 9th Grade. Oh yeah.
