But I do wonder what educators are doing to make their classroom a place students want to be? The lack of freedom also restricts their learning, no matter how good the teacher. Dancing the night away is well and good, but it also means sleeping through the day. Even now, your linguistic reach exceeds your grasp, as your abuse of any number of words in your reply shows. Anyway, did I mention the school play ground equipment is really good too? My students are so dear to me — they still have fun doing art projects and drawing and they still teach me new things everyday. Checking all of those channels is a frantic blur of sorting and prioritizing and deleting, knowing that at any given moment I'm causing disappointment and frustration to dozens of people who are waiting to hear from me, many of whom can't do their jobs until they do.
But, that is why letting children learn what they want, when they want, and how they want is the best policy, with the smallest amount of structure possible. This is not only wrong, it is a major source of the problems in Georgia schools. My next job was 7th grade. You will have many teachers that try to tell you how to do your job. How do you expect our kids to react? The whole point of socialization is for people to talk and build relationships.
The problem is, they totally miss the point of the question. Girls have to wear white blouses and light-blue skirts in. And most of all, we learn to be one big family. Well, hate is a pretty strong word, but yes, yes I did. You didn't wish them a happy birthday.
Whether their sentiments are positive or negative, I always understand where I stand. In the end, everyone is in a prison. The school has three play areas like handball, sandbox, and downcourt. If you want to get people to hate you, then lie. Usually this feeling doesn't last long. I also like the fact that I have a lot of friends, for example, Cary and Josh.
Turns out there's a law against that. I didn't do well with school, socially. Everyone is smart, in the subject that they are naturally in tuned to. I like the prayer assembly in my school. But, in my experience, such playfulness is not wasted.
So let's talk about school and what to do when you don't like it. You have to change that by finding your own energy. The offended parties are assuming that you think you're so high and mighty that they don't even rate a response, and that your silence is a kind of power play intended to let them know that. Sometimes you just have to move on. And that's the point -- there's no good way for a busy person to tell you they don't have time for you. I like music in school be-cause it is a special in school and it is fun.
I like my classmates also. I like the classes and the teachers. So I want to go on record: Middle school rocks! Palmer uses the analogy of an actor playing a role onstage, and then being a very different person backstage. To the insentient, yes, school was a prison because it did not permit them to be distractions to my education, school is a prison to the willfully dumb, school holds cell-block status to the unevolved, to the future burger-flippers, to the eventual gutter-dwellers and trailer trash, to the couch potato, channel surfer, aspartame-licking, high fructose-glazed consumers wallowing mindlessly in the pit of their own fetid stink, and in a way it's merely practice for their eventual later incarceration. Plus, mix that in with a little jealously… and there you go, you have hate. My school is located very near to my home. I will mentor them every step of the way.
I love it for the following reasons : It allows me a relatively stress free environment, I am in the same school as my daughter so schedule follows hers , I have a wonderful administration who is open to ideas and suggestions regarding the school environment, and, finally, a wonderful student body, who though they don't provide acuity in terms of assessment, they do provide endless joy and excitement watching them evolve in the educational process. Of course, I've met some teachers who are very anti-homeschool, too, but they have been fewer. If they love a lesson, I will know immediately, and if they are bored, I hear that too. While they were wasting their time being restricted to the pre-determined route, I was reaching the sky. In the library, thank you so much for choosing these amazing books. You are simply being aware of the energy shifting and fading away. That's why they got pissed at you.
