    Well, I've come across a teacher my final year in high school that well... Drives me up the wall, but I love her.

    Name's Mrs. Watson. 50-something years old.

    She's my advanced math teacher for honors.


    So far, she's known around as one of the hardest teachers in the school.
    There's another advanced math teacher, I had her for Algebra 2 last year, and her only advanced math class is FULL. While my class has... 16 people in it. I think...


    Well, she IS hard. She used to teach college. But she's only hard 'cause she teaches on a level higher than what we're used to. Heck, we have to think for ourselves.

    For instance, she'll teach us something, and then we have homework that's due like, a week and half later.

    Most of us complain that it's hard, yet havn't done the homework. I think that's the problem.


    But she's cool. She always cracking us up. Always giving us life lessons and telling us to "Show our mathematical enthusiasm" 'cause this lady loves math. She even missed a day of school to go to a "I love math" convention!

    And the best part, she gives us candy and stickers.
    That's right.
    Stickers.

    You get a sticker by:
    Making an A on a test.
    Being in an extracurricular event.
    She even gave somebody a sticker for not getting a sticker 'cause everyone else got a sticker.

    Heck, even Friday she gave me and this other girl a bag of candy for being in the play!


    But she follows the rules, though.
    She'll write you up if you do something wrong. I actually have to shave EVERY morning (I hate shaving D:! Blast ye fast-growing beard!).


    So how about you guys?
    You got a teacher like this?

    My English teacher was a total legend. She got us to buckle down and do all the work, and everyone always had it in on time, which never ever happened for any other class, she was strict but she was God damn funny. Even more sarcastic than myself, she was basically spawned directly off God.

    Now I've got an old woman who has no sense of humour or personality, and it's really dull. I miss her so much. :(


    She's pregnant, I even asked her to name her kid after me, but that's another story xD

    Oh God. Mr.Gilchrist. What a crazy guy. "Type A" kind of personality if you catch my drift, but like your teacher, Trulen, he always incorporated a life lesson or what have you into whatever we were doing. Very smart individual, even though I hated him sometimes. He was my teacher for 4 years straight (5th-9th) and we (my class) got to know him very well, as well he got to know us.

    He was a "tie everything back to the Bible" kind of guy, which was good, but sometimes it got annoying because it seemed like he was going WAY out of the way to do it...

    I miss a lot of the friends I met when I was being taught by him, since I'm now split from all of them now that I'm in Public School. The only reason we were so tight was because he had us do so many things together. But, yeah...he was one that you had a constant love/hate relationship with. Miss him to death though.

    Well, yeah. Last year, my 8th grade science teacher. She was pure evil, but awesome at the same time. She always picks on the little nerdy kids, the smartest girls, and...she graded hardest on the guys...but she was still awesome. She shows up to our class one day, and the second bell rings. We dont get into our seats, as usual, for another minute or two, and when were all settled down, she lies back in her chair..."You know what...I dont feel like teaching today...go do whatever you want..." and she turns to her computer and she uses it the whole class, while were having paper wasp fights in the back of the room, stacking desks on top of each other and knocking them down...gtms, gtms...

    She always yelled at this one kid, Aaron...he was like a huge nerd and he would walk in the room and say hi to her, and she'd be like "SHUT UP AARON I DONT WANT TO HEAR A WORD FROM YOU!!!" She was so hilariously evil, i guess :mad5:

    That's not a teacher, that's a babysitter.

    Hmmm...

    Sixth grade, name s Mrs. Ferguson...

    Unfortunately, we're talking the other way around, most people loved hating her. She was simply crazy, always making faces at us (little pissed off faces with the puffy lips lolz) had lice and such. That grade every class she had was so bad she quit that school o_O

    Another one was my Math Teacher last year... he wrestled with the students (He was an old guy too) He managed to get some kids head between his legs, while cobra clutching another kid at the same time :D Also was completely a jackass, you couldn't eat in class unless you gave him some food, and his reason he could do things in class that we couldn't was because he was te teacher <.< Either way, he deserves some props :]

    My Bio teacher as well.
    Shes a stunner.
    Young, pretty..but shes so annoying.

    Constantly reminding us to do work, whats due etc.
    Which I guess is what a teacher does.

    But there is something else I would rather have her do. :ihih:

    Ah, Miss Herrema...70 years old and her teaching was her lover...

    We learned college level English things in middle school. So every time I feel the need to mock your grammar, you have her to thank. :)

    All of you guys are making out school to be some kind of Underworld. :lol:
    I can't actually remember any of my teachers being hard on me, probably because I was always nice to them, but yeah, my school years are nothing for me to complain about. :)

    Her and my english teacher should so get married.

    I have another one! Mr Kirby (yeah, I laughed at him too)

    He was the best teacher ever. He used to teach me for graphics for two years, he'd teach exactly the same way as I did. Causing most of the class to fail miserably and me getting a D. Yeah, that wasn't so great.

    He didn't have a serious take on anything, I'd sit there all day talking about cars and food with him. For three hours a week I got to sit there and do nothing.

    When it came down to the actual teaching, he was a nightmare. He didn't give us any sense of direction and I still don't understand what the hell my coursework was meant to be on. I challenged his teaching methods and complained to him frequently about it but he just blamed it on my laziness, which is ironic. Often, he'd even walk out of class, go to the canteen and pick up a butty and eat it in front of us.

    So I did what was common sense in the coursework, I did no making work which I've never been taughy, unfortunately 70% of your grade was going on how well you made this box look fancy. Plus, I wasn't going anywhere near a knife when I could have Tetris to play on for an hour.

    Too laid back, that's why I came out with a D.

    That class was freaking awesome though.

    "Emma, shut up for once, because you don't know everything. I hope you do as well in the exams as you think you will." - Hahaha, best year book entry. Ever.

    The grin is the natural reaction of his face, while the eyebrows going up means, 'His teacher is passing out homework.' So while the eyebrows goes up and she hands out work, he's thinking "Dammit, more?"

    Nice interpretation WuddlePook. However, I still believe it's insinuating something else...not sure what though...

    There was a few..

    One that most comes to mind is Mr Morgan, or as we called him, Mogzy.

    He was the one me and my friends used to do stuff to, like put fish in his class and such. He told the worst jokes in the world and he'd think they were so funny, but it was him, and he really cared that we all did well and was really good at teaching.

    There was one teacher who I just loved to love. She was brilliant. She was my registration teacher for 3 years and my ICT teacher for around 2. She was always there for me when I needed a chat and would always help me out.

    At one point I was having problems with my Welsh teacher, she was singling me out every lesson and was horrible to me, I told my reg teacher and she went over to the staff room and spoke to the welsh teacher telling her to leave me alone.

    She also let us paint our class which was fun, my step-father came in to plaster the walls then we all bought paint and painted this picture across the whole wall in her class.

    She's done everything too.. she's about 65 years old now and is a yoga instructor, she ran a marathon across the Great Wall of China last year and is also a Lady, she married a Lord two years a go :)

    She's a great person and does lots of things with charities and she does life coaching. Even though she doesn't teach me anymore we still keep in contact and e-mail each other often.
