Guess who’s back, back, back. Back again, again, again.
Hey everyone! First of all I’m soooo sorry I’ve been away for this long! I’ve just had a really rough few weeks, I might write about it, but I’m still deciding. But I’m back now, that’s all that matters!
I completely had no idea what to write today, I think my rough few weeks might have given me writer’s block. But luckily I managed to think of something right now, it’s not the most original idea in the world but I really wanted to write a post for you guys. And guess what it’s about? It’s my favourite place in the world….
(Don’t worry, this is 100% sarcasm. No way in a million years school will be my favourite place! Unless a miracle happens that is!)
Today’s post is going to be about Types of Teachers At School, me analysing the types of teachers found at school, more accurately my school. I’m gonna be dishing out some good ol’ dirt.
The ‘Alright’ One:
It’s in the name really, this is the teacher everyone thinks of as ‘alright’. Nothing more, nothing less. He or She teaches decently, but there’s a teacher you prefer, and is pretty strict 50% of the time. He or She only dishes out detentions when it really comes to it, and homework is always quick and easy to complete.
The ‘I Hate My Job’ One:
This teacher hates his/her job. Maybe they liked it in the beginning, but then they started to fall out of love with it, and it shows in lessons. All the lessons are boring, they don’t try to liven it up a bit. Mostly textbooks all lesson, and homework is never set, probably because they don’t want to mark it!
The ‘Hey, what’s up?’ One:
Pretty much every school has a teacher like this! This is the teacher everyone loves. He/she makes lessons fun, and interact with students like they’re not just students, however they know when to cross into ‘normal teacher mode’ when needed. They interact with students during break and lunch, sometimes you can spot them having a nice chat with a student from another year about shared interests. Most (not all) are pretty funny and can give you a good laugh when you need it. These teachers are usually more trusted by students, and they’re deemed ‘safe’.
The ‘How Do You Work This Again?’ One:
I always seen to get teachers like these! These teachers can’t teach, long story short. They’re quite annoying too, since when another teacher sits in, lessons aren’t that useless, but when it’s just that teacher, lessons aren’t worth being in! They can’t control the class, even if the class isn’t a bad one, they teach things you already know, they always act so confused, awkward and uncomfortable, and yet they’re still employed! I have one of these teachers, he teaches my English class. Every other English class has finished studying/reading Macbeth, we’re still on Act 4. Ughh!
The ‘You’re My Favourite’ One:
This teacher is similar yet different from the ‘Friend’ one. Firstly, this teacher is only nice if he/she likes you. Other than that they turn very strict. They teach well, most struggle but eventually control a class, and set reasonable homework. My History teacher falls under this category, she really likes me! She was visibly elated when I said I was picking History GCSE! My History lessons have recently been clashing with my Piano lessons which sucks, but since I felt bad for missing her lessons, I said I could complete the class work at home. Which brings me onto another thing about these teachers, you tend to feel so bad if you let them down!
The ‘I’d Rather Die Than Get Yelled At By’ One:
Man these teachers are scary. Like, ‘look down and don’t make eye contact’ scary. You can occasionally hear the echo of their voice from somewhere else in the building because they’re yelling at some kid for having messy uniform. And it’s the saddest thing ever when you see kids standing outside their office, waiting to be called in, looking like death is around the corner. These teachers are usually high up in school, head of year’s, deputy of something, head of something. Everyone knows not to mess with this teacher, they’ve earned respect within school that way. You know when they have when you hear a conversation about a kid that’s got in trouble, and when they ask by which teacher and they say it’s the scary one, there’s usually a silence of ‘aw damn’.
The ‘Trainee’ One:
These poor guys are similar to the ‘how do you work this again?’ teachers but slightly better, depending. These teachers are new to the ropes, probably teaching in a secondary school for the first time, is scared as hell but determined to make this work. After all, being a teacher is their dream right? They try hard to be liked, which usually works against them and students end up taking advantage of them, they don’t teach very well, and never set homework. They always look so flustered at the end of a lesson, or even tearful. Brutal secondary schoolers take advantage of these poor teachers, making every lesson with them a living hell. I feel sorry for them most of the time. Then again you can get these teachers that actually do well, however that’s rare.
The ‘Mix Of Both’ One:
These teachers are usually a combination of two or three of the teacher types above. That’s all I can say about them! My Maths teacher is a combination of the ‘Hey, what’s up?’ one and the ‘I’d rather die than get yelled at by’ one, which is quite a odd combination.
Anndd we’ve reached the end readers! Thank you for reading, let me know whether you have any of these teacher types at your school and you relate! Sorry once again for my absence, like I said it’s been rough, my mental state went haywire. I really want to make a post on it sometime, maybe during the Easter break which is in a few weeks!
See ya when I see ya, hopefully soon.
