More Reflections!

I've been doing more thinking, a lot of thinking.....about school life, and such.


And after reflecting on my school life, and how it felt to be me, and how i remember me....I remember a boy in my form class. And this boy had no friends. People were nasty to him on a daily basis......calling him horrid names, and telling him he smelt.....I remember on my first day being told about this boy, he had a medical condition so I was told that meant things like that were not actually his fault. Yet still the kids, everyday, made his life miserable.

And I suddenly thought, I was just as bad as them.....I didn't do anything about it, I was never horrible to him or joined in the mean names, but I never bothered to speak to him......through sheer fear I think, of being rejected even more so.....What would you do if you were in that position as a teacher, seeing someone being treated like this? I just don't know....and felt really bad!


Now on a different note......time keeping, this has been flagged up seriously on my course, I don't think we have had one lecture end when it should (well thats a lie, we finished early once, as we decided not to have a long break). And I know things over run sometimes, and its never by much, but it has made me realise that timekeeping is hard and I will really have to think about it! and I feel as if though I'm just constantly being spoken at!  3 hour lectures are killing me! I find it hard to sit still and listen for an hour let alone 3!!!!! Hopefully I will remember to time keep and be aware of it......its not a bad thing, but i think consistent bad time keeping will start to grate my students!

  1. It’s always worth sticking up for the underdog. If someone’s social life is being made harder because of something they can’t help, I think the teacher should step in. Maybe that’s too old-fashioned for modern classrooms; I don’t know.
