    I'm in 7th grade, and my gym teacher, who I think is around his mid 40's,has the job of watching us during lunch. And he will always go over to this one group of girls and sit with them. Every day. And he will always go behind him and play with their hair, and always touching them, but he doesn't really touch them in a sexual way I don't think. Like he'll rud their should ,and pat their leg if he's sitting beside them. And one time he bought 3 of the girls food out of his own money. I don't mean to sound sexist, but it kinda creeps me out. I've told my parents but they don't seem worried too much. Should I report him?

  • Is a teacher allowed to give a different test to just 1 student?

    Best answer: You've gotten some good answers, and some helpful information. Let me explain this situation from the teacher's point of view.

    Best answer: You've gotten some good answers, and some helpful information. Let me explain this situation from the teacher's point of view. You are smart enough to know that, unless the teacher is a complete fool, he's not going to simply hand you the same test everyone else took. He has no way of knowing whether you were told the test questions by someone else, or whether you made yourself a "cheat sheet" of the answers to the multiple choice and "true/false" questions. It would be easy enough to hide one in lots of places, and the teacher is aware of this. Your being absent on test day, therefore, forces the teacher to create a special test just for you. (Now comes a part that you will not understand until you are a teacher yourself.) A "multiple choice, true/false" test is easy to grade, but difficult to produce, requires a lot of thinking and preparation, and cannot be written "just off the top of one's head." An "essay" type test is the opposite. It takes a lot of time and effort to grade, but is easy to create. That's the position your teacher was in. He didn't have the time or energy to write a special "true/false" test just for you, so he created a test based on essay questions. Your point of view is that you should have gotten the same kind of test that everyone else had, and I hear you. But from the teacher's perspective, that wasn't practical. Your point of view is that you had a valid reason for not being in class when the original test was given (your question does not give the reason), but the teacher's point of view is that it doesn't matter why you were not there. The fact of your not being there when the rest of the class took a test forced the teacher either to tell you "no make-up exams," in which case he feels bad because your grade goes down, or, the other choice would be to give you a make-up test which he has to create, read, and grade. You are correct in saying that the teacher failed to ask a "question" in the example you gave, and I agree with you that the expectation is not clear. The instructions should have been better, and the test items should have been more clearly expressed as real "questions." But the bottom line is that you were absent when the original test was given, and that fact created a problem. You're dealing with the aftermath of your absence, and what you need to learn here is "Don't miss tests unless you are about to die." Consider very carefully any "reason," even "sickness," which might prevent you from being in school on a test day, and make every effort to take the test when everyone else does. Some teachers simply do not allow make-up work at all, so developing the habit of not missing tests will serve you well in the future.

EXCEPT when, last Wednesday, the kid in question made a comment and the teacher said almost literally "You shouldn't even be saying that, you got a ** on the test." (The grade was not the best, and, though the kid did not look humiliated or hurt, I don't think this was the best behavior on the teacher's part). My question: Is a teacher legally permitted to publicly announce a grade without the consent of the student? Please identify your sources. Thanks ^.^

    Does this make sense to you? I was chewing gum in Wal-mart, she sees me,walks up to me, and told me to spit out my gum. And she was being serious. I just walked away. Explain her problem?

    Best answer: That would be an extremely difficult study.

    But if you are simply learning about experiments and independent/dependent variables then here's what you have. Since you want to compare teaching swimming in a pool vs a natural body of water. That would be the independent variable. The independent variable is the one the experimenter controls. The dependent variable would be what you choose to measure to determine which is the best way to teach swimming.

    Best answer: your email was not "lovely", it was "inappropriate" and it "crossed boundaries".

    but it is also survivable.

    its good that you thought to apologize. you may get a lecture about keeping your communication professional and formal, but as you realized it was wrong before they had to contact you, you probably won't get in actual trouble.

    you don't have the right to be "bugged" that your teacher didn't write back to an email while they are on break... especially an email you shouldn't have written in the first place. so let that attitude go.

    I'm a first-year middle school science teacher and there's a student in my lunch period class who I'm a little worried about. Everyday, he brings his lunch in a black liquor store bag.

    I'm a first-year middle school science teacher and there's a student in my lunch period class who I'm a little worried about. Everyday, he brings his lunch in a black liquor store bag. Obviously, I don't suspect that he's drinking, but I worried about his home situation. He's an average student, he doesn't have any behavioral problems, and he's well-liked by his classmates. Even so, to have a next liquor store bag *every* day is alarming (I only started paying attention the last two weeks, so I don't know how long it's been going on). I've never met his parents, and I don't suspect abuse, but from personal experience as a child of an alcoholic, I can attest to the fact that it takes a big emotional toll, even if it's not obvious. Would I be over-stepping by asking to speak to the parents? Thanks

    Best answer: Just forget it. Your attractive teacher will probably have received many such compliments during her career. I'm sure she appreciates them but she would also not wish for her student to continue sending compliments as she would then be obliged to report it, and that might harm the obviously positive relationship you both have now. I also admired my teacher , even got a long hug from her when it was time to say goodbye. Precious moments; enjoy them, they stay with you all your life.

    Update:How was it idiotic to apologize?............It was not idiotic. It was sincere and honorable. Now stay that way and she will always think highly of you. No need to dwell on it.

I understand that these teachers have more than one students assignment to grade but a a month is unacceptable, one of my took 3 months and counting to hand back a 250 word paper...... and that's just one assignment, there are a few discussion posts (very basic and hardly complicated) that she hasn't handed back and these go back all the way to January. I am so angry I've had to email her multiple time throughout the semester each time she says they'll be marked soon. This is enough for me to want to wish she would find a new job Ever had a teacher like this? It has to be one of my biggest pet peeves!!!
