How can I Get Along With My Teacher?
I can't stand an unfair teacher
Become a teacher... try to be fair... then you can get along with anyone
As a teacher, I tend to think that very few teachers are actually unfair, but students tend to think that any decision that negatively affects him/her is unfair, even if they've seen the same consequences given to several other students. Most teachers, myself included, work very hard to be fair and consistent. So my first suggestion is to reevaluate the situation and ask is it genuinely unfair, or is it just something you don't like?
However, there are always exceptions to the rule, and there are some teachers who really are unfair. If this teacher is truly unfair, your two main options are to either 1) just deal with it, or 2) suck up and try to become one of the students treated more favorably. If this is a severe case of injustice in the classroom, then you should contact the principal, dean, etc. and state the facts (no opinions) so they can help remedy the situation, but that should really only be done in the case of the teacher's unfairness hurting your grade or infringing on your rights. You might also want to try talking to your teacher either in person or in an email. If a teacher is approached with a comment like, "I'm sure you didn't intend to do this, but it really embarrassed me when you . . .", he or she will likely apologize (I don't think most teachers ever aim to embarrass students or hurt them in any way, though we all have different sensitivities, and so it happens), and prevent the situation from happening again.

There was a time when being a teacher was a secure as well as safe occupation. Now with some states laying off or retiring teachers, things have changed. If you are a teacher—or contemplating being one in the near future—what do you think will be your biggest challenge?

Well if you ask me Teachers should be friending the parents of their students... and not worrying about talking to the students.I would think the Teachers would want to talk to the Parents. But then again maybe not?...---"COLUMBIA, Mo. – As they prepare lesson plans for fall, teachers...
