It’s like school never ended cause even when it was time to go home your 5 hours remaining for that day was ruined with 7 hours worth of homework. Weekends were worse.

I remember a few years ago hearing on the news Canada was preparing to outlaw homework cause kids never had the time to be kids and alot of them were growing up to be troublemakers cause they didn’t have time when younger to get it out of their system.

Me alot of times when homework was due in class I never turned in anything in. Teachers didn’t notice til like 2 days later then when they approached me I’d come up with any excuse. Sometimes they hand me a new sheet and say “This is considered late!” and I was always like “And???? Is that supposed to mean the world ends or something????” Other times they’d say “I’m giving you a zero for today!” And I was always like “Sure ok next assignment….”

They always seemed hateful, but I never cared. I think I only ever had one teacher in my lifetime that actually tried to find out why I never turned homework in like she cared and was willing to help me, but I don’t remember her ever doing anything except saying something along the lines of “Please try harder next time”

I understand that but you must also understand everyone today had a teacher and it’s the teachers job to leave a good mark on that student’s memory.

Some of us grew up hating the teachers, but that is the teacher’s fault.

It’s highly important for a teacher not to teach all kids the same way. All personalities are different and the teaching techniques should change if a student isn’t getting it. A good teacher loves a challenge even with the worst students. Not so hard to shape a troubled student if you figure out what is holding him/her back. When I was growing up no teacher cared. If a student failed then that’s just what happened.

Anything can be fun if it’s approached a certain way. I used to hate math cause numbers bored me. Then one day I got a teacher who made a game using math and it was so fun when the day was over I didn’t want it to stop.

There’s a big difference between handing a young child a sheet with 50 math problems and telling them they can go to recess once the sheet is complete. And engaging an interactive game with the math problem then sending the whole class to recess.

They were also very unimaginative and lazy. If you were sick and missed a day the teacher wouldn’t care about helping you catch up they throw extra homework on your lap and proceed to teaching everyone else the next step. It was more of my parents job and other students to help me learn.

The teachers was also very uneducated themselves if I wasn’t getting the hang on learning what they wanted me to learn their first thought was being mean and cruel. A good teacher recognizes the child’s weakness in understanding the method being taught and changes his/her tactics to help them understand. Me I was ridiculed and used as a mocking tool in front of the class to be used as an example of an under achiever.

Some people should never be teachers. But the one’s that are should not forget kids are human some kids are smarter than others and the not so intelligent kids shouldn’t be looked down on. And when I got into high school there was about maybe 1 teacher who acted like he wanted to be there and teach. The rest were lazy and you could tell they hated their job.

I only paid respect to the teachers who acted like they were enjoying themselves teaching. I even remember one teacher who only liked the popular bright kids and she acted like she was a rich snob. I regret being so young and naive then I could have easily cost her her job remember even today what she would say to her class and how she treated the kids.

I am 40 today and nearly everything I learned was all pretty much self taught. I don’t hate teachers I only hate teachers there to babysit rather than teach. And most importantly they need to try and make teaching fun. Fun teachers are remembered and loved. Me I remember getting up at 6 tired and sleepy and going to school being barely able to hold my eyes open and all I was greeted with those mornings was a screaming teacher asking complicated math problem after problem and the only thought I had was pretending to be sick so I can go home.

Not all teachers are bad some are real good, but the bad one’s leave a deep seated dark memory in your mind forcing you to remember why you failed to learn a certain subject at a young age.
