Honestly, a lot of my teachers demand respect from me while giving me an amount of respect equivalent to what an average person would give to a potato chip. So my respect for them starts to drop after they start basing their grades based on how they feel about their students.
Well the teachers won't attack you with bad grades or baby you with good ones, they're fair. Some may seem unfair and very few are, but they do respect that you want to learn and will do their best to help you achieve what you want.
Yeah, not just your school, I had that in high school too.
I believe this is true, but it's how you portray your care that matters.
For example, our ceramics and photography teacher is a strict bitch, to say the least. Take over 5 minutes in the bathroom? No more bathroom for the rest of the quarter (this happened to me because I was taking a shit). Do something wrong with your project? She'll be sure to not sugar up her words. She loves to talk and talk and often mutters things at students. For example, my friend has asthma and hasn't been able to bring in the paperwork for her inhaler yet. So the teacher decided to call her out on it, which is fair, but what wasn't fair is that she believed my friend didn't have asthma. And that's taking a side, which is biased. Something teachers should avoid.
The only way to make her even slightly respectful towards you is to excel in her class, not talk (ever), don't talk back (ever), and to ask as little from her as possible. That's what I did, and she still muttered at me and shook her head.
They want to help because they get paid for it. It's not like they volunteer to teach for free.
Well a lot of teachers take their job seriously. Plus teaching barely pays, it's a commitment more than an occupation fo shizzle.
But the benefits they get are really good, they get good retirement plans, and lots of holidays. So it's still pretty good.
Teachers certainly don't have a glamourous job. They're teaching the future, and usually, as soon as they realise that, they care.
My mother is a teacher and she certainly doesn't take her job lightly. I've seen her on the verge of crying because the kids don't realise what they have.
And the benefits? Dude, My mother spends most of her time at home marking and making new programs to follow, it's not an easy job. It's stressful.
Do NOT tell the people that gave you chances that they have it easy/don't care. :l
