Teachers Try Very Hard

They really do try to work fairly and calmly with all the children in the class. As with any large group of people, children, like adults, will exhibit varying personality traits, and no two are alike.

Let's have a look-see at what the poor teacher is really trying to say, without seeming mean or uncaring.

Your Child is Very Expressive

This can mean several things, but most likely, this kid is a chatterbox whom the teacher dearly wishes would stop talking in class so the lesson can proceed as scheduled.

With the constant interruptions to remind the kids to keep quiet, it is very difficult to present the day's lessons.

Your Child Has Multiple Talents

Watch out for this one. It is unlikely to mean that little Bobby or Susie is skilled in all areas of study.

Probably, this is the class clown; a kid very good at making all the others laugh and stop paying attention. Whether it be climbing on the desks, zooming around the room pretending to be a super-hero, or creating general chaos by any number of creative means.

This Student Will be a Fine Artist One Day

Uh-oh! This is the kid who's spent quite a bit of time in the principal's office for assorted graffiti adventures around the school.

It first came to the teacher's attention with an artwork drawn on his desk during a test. The test was not taken, despite appearances to the contrary, with his head been low in rapt concentration.

Your Child Has a Good Imagination

Well, well, well. This could be a good thing, or a bad thing. But it most often means that the wild stories she tells during 'sharing' time are straight out of her imagination, and nowhere else.

Possible career choices for a child with these talents include politics, car sales, or possibly science fiction writer.


I have a great respect and admiration for teachers. They have a tough job, and I know I could not do it; I don't have the required patience.

This is meant all in fun, and no disrespect to teachers is intended.
