  • Are teacher in private schools better than regular ones?

    Best answer: Sometimes they are, and sometimes they aren't. Here are the experiences a friend of mine had.

    Best answer: Sometimes they are, and sometimes they aren't. Here are the experiences a friend of mine had. He'd gone to a good public high school for three years, but for the fourth year they were not offering the advanced courses he'd signed up for. So his folks transferred him to a private school.

    English: Both teachers were experienced elderly women. The public school stuck to a curriculum of literature and grammar. The private school had literature and creative writing, mostly.

    History: The teachers were both good. The textbooks were much better in the public school.

    Math: He missed a whole year of public school advanced math. There was no advanced math in the private school. This caused a lot of difficulty when he encountered college calculus.

    Science: In public school, physics was the fourth year science course. He missed that. Although the private school physics course was interesting, it was nowhere near so informative or challenging.

    French: The public school teacher was an American lady with a terrible accent, but she drilled the principles of grammar into her students. The private school teacher was a native Frenchwoman, who emphasized reading, writing, and speaking, and expected the students to learn the grammar from the assignments she gave and graded.

    Team sports: As expected, the larger high school offered more sports and better competition. The private school had fewer sports, and competition only among the few other private schools in the area. It was not high-level competition.

    Socialization: The classes in the public school averaged 25 to 30 students. There were about 100 students in his year. He knew lots of other guys to talk to, and had a number of dates and a few close friends, but was not included in any parties or cliques. His private school year had only 13 students, most of whom participated in all the same classes. He formed two lifelong friendships, and was guided to a very good fit for his college education.

    Bottom line: Although some of the private school teachers did not have the formal credentials for a public school teacher, they were all effective teachers, and the smaller classes allowed more individual attention.

    All in all, he was glad to have had the experience of a private school. Although most of the students came from well-to-do backgrounds, there was only one "snob", and he'd already been kicked out of two more prestigious private schools. He didn't last long at that one either.

    You should be rejoicing that someone cares enough to make the kids work. The teacher is trying to make sure the kids are well grounded. She's not excepting mediocrity as her standard.

    Best answer: How to Fire Your Teacher:
    (This method only works if it's Saturday or Sunday and your school uses a code to open doors)

    1. Put on a pair of unused plastic gloves. Do NOT touch anything with the gloves until I say so.
    2. Go to a book shop and buy 50 Shades of Grey. You may touch the book but nothing else. Do NOT buy the book online because your teacher may be a hacker. (You may receive weird looks for wearing plastic gloves but try to ignore them).
    3. Put the book in a unused plastic bag and don't let anything touch it.
    4. Go home and wait until it's 12am.
    5. Change into an all black outfit that covers most of your body and wear a black ninja scarf that covers the face.6. Go to your school with a friend. Give them the 50 Shades of Grey book in a bag to carry (If you don't have friends, go with anyone)

  • How long would it take to teach yourself how to play the piano?

    Best answer: I think it completely depends on how committed you are to learning. I spent 10 years learning because I had to do a cultural activity at school and my mom played but not because I wanted to and never really learnt how to play but I know other people who were able to play quite well within a few months

    My parents aren't abusive, and they've always taught us how to behave properly. I have a teacher who constantly tells me that my parents are horrible because they don't believe in double standards when it comes to gender. She thinks I should have an earlier curfew than my brother because she thinks adults will sexualize me and not my brother. My parents were always gender neutral with us, and believed we should be treated our age and abilities. I'm 15 and my brother is 12. She once told me, "no matter how much Canada is trying to make everyone equal, you're still not equal to your brother and your parents need to worry about that". She already tried setting up a meeting with my parents about it, but the principal refused for it to happen because there was no proof of something to be concerned about.

    Best answer: New teachers make mistakes. I made more than my share of them. Learn from this and remember, do better. Most of the teachers that you work with undoubtedly have stories to tell just like this one. One incident like this is not going to get you fired... especially considering that you recognized your mistake and apologized, that makes a significant difference.
    Just focus on doing the best you can with developing a positive and useful relationship with your classes. If the principal wants to discuss anything, just play it honest and straight up, good teachers know very well how easy it is for new teachers to make mistakes, especially with the wonky effort that a DipEd does with preparing teachers properly for their job. I personally believe that teaching courses should take responsibility for training teachers, at least to some degree, in class management, rather than throwing them to the wolves. If they did that, maybe more people would stay in teaching.

    I was a teacher for a few years. I had good classes and bad classes (often the fault was my own, whether they were good or bad classes)... I had one class which had this student... well, there were a few frustrating students, but there was this one that had absolutely no interest in or intention of going along with the class. He would literally wander around and harass the other students, all I could do was send him outside, and I couldn't keep doing that forever. The school's position on this student was that they would rather have him in class than out on the streets... in spite of the fact that he was ruining the lessons for everyone else. One day, he refused to leave, and I grabbed him and told him to go. Yes I know, totally not an OK thing to do. I fairly quickly apologized to the class after doing that. And yes, I had to explain myself. I think the other teachers understood that it was a noob mistake.
    Funny thing is... after I did that, all the other students were suddenly very well behaved, and got on with their tasks. The chaos disappeared for a little while and there was a moment of respect and co-operation. That doesn't excuse what I did... but, perhaps there is something to be said for teachers having a bit of leeway to scare unruly teenagers, just a bit, into taking things seriously.

    Best answer: How long do you expect to hide your situation? Sooner or later, your secret is going to be exposed. Your unborn kid deserves to be taken care of. This means regular doctor visits, prenatal care, etc. How do you intend to provide this on your own?

    Of course your parents are going to be upset. However, they ARE your parents, and as such, there is (or should be) a level of responsibility on their part to look after your best interest. They need to know.

    Maybe ask yourself this question; if you were in their shoes, if YOU had a daughter who was in trouble, wouldn't YOU want to know? Wouldn't YOU want to be given the opportunity to be there to support her during her time of need?

    After the dust settles, moods calm down, it's possible that your parents just "MIGHT" be glad you came to them and told them. "Maybe" they will be supportive. Maybe they won't be. Is it right to deprive them of the opportunity to help you? If they shun you, so be it, but at least you could look back and say, "I tried to involve them, and give them the opportunity to be there for me. They blew it."

    Regarding your teacher, YES! You could start with her. Tell her exactly what you've told us. She may involve the school counselor. Work with them, explain your concerns. A meeting will probably be arranged involving you, your teacher/counselor(s), and your parents, where you can discuss the situation and have a moderator (the teacher or counselor) who can intervene and offer support.

    You can't do this alone! Talk with your teacher, or somebody you trust. Do this ASAP!
