Okay, you now how your parents and other adults tell you, you should respect you elders. Well when a teacher or someone is disrespecting you how far can you let them go before it's time for you to say something to them? Not out of disrespect, but just because you don't like or agree with what their saying or its offensive to you. Oh by the way, in your own opinion, how far do you think a teacher has to go to disrespect you?

When I become a student, I do not have a problem with the teacher. I respect them and they treat me well. When I became a teacher, I feel some students disrespect to me. But I still treat them with a polite and fair.

I have become a teacher 20 years ago. I treat students as friends.

well at my school we just got a art teacher and she hates me for no reason the first day i walked in and she gets all made at me for no reason. the way i respond to this is to say to my friends she is a raciest and hates me because i am jewish i am joking of course she is not. i think the main reason was because i refuse to kiss up to her like the rest of the class. in front of her i will become disrepecful just to make mad.

It is sad how our education system favors those who suck up and squashes those who are truly brilliant. I think that many of these people see us as a threat to the jobs they shouldn't have anyway.
