I been trying to wake up early but the long transportation from my home to school got me often late. But its ok that my teacher understand my situation.

kudos to your teacher! and to you too for trying your best to attend classes everyday inspite of the daily hassles on the road.. when i was a student i almost flunked Calculus because of being late.. imagine starting class at 7:30 in the morning?!! i commute from our house and it takes me almost 2 hours to reach the university.. i was not able to take most of the quizzes and other exams because i come to class few minutes before the professor say "let's call it a day".. and thanks to my prof for understanding my situation and for believing in my skills when it comes to math.. she still gave me a passing mark :) she's one of my inspirations for pursuing a degree in education and majoring in mathematics.. so jobmoone goodluck to you and your studies..

As much as possible i try to be on time or earlier than the scheduled time. My first class is 7:30am which is really difficult because I have to wake up at 5:30-6am to prepare my things and myself. Half an hour before 7:30 I have to leave because it's rush hour there's no way I can leave later than that. Unfortunately, there are days that I get up at 6.30 because I slept more I end up going to my class 5 to 10 minutes late which is terrible! 5 minutes of the class is too much because we do long lectures and within those minutes I have missed already about 5 topics at least.

I think I have been late for my classes like many times already. I am a teacher now and I am still late for my class. I think I am suppose to change that kind of attitude now cause its not going to do me any good cause I think it would be very unprofessional but I think its weaknesses that needs to be changed. I think it will always make a good impression if you are always on time cause people will know you are dependable. The only reason I am always late for work this days is because my student is also always late.

I never been late for my school but i have been late for my college. My school and college was too near from my home. But i couldn't wake up early in the morning. When i was school my mother always wake up me but when i was at college then it was my own responsibility to wake up. So sometime i was late for my college. And one or two time i got punished by my college teacher.

I've always been a latecomer when I was in high school. Most of the time, we enter the class late but on purpose. Me and my friends like doing that because we like pissing off the teacher. Sometimes they punish us but we like it, our first class is always math so whenever we get punished, we didn't get to attend the math class.

I have late many a times due to traffic, bus late, and many other reasons. But each time I get late my teachers always forgive me..lucky I am. But I always try my best not to get late. When I was a kid, my mom used to take us to school and at that time we were never late but when I started going by bus, many a times, we get late, not only I, but most of children in the bus were late.
