The teacher had decided to talk to her when later that evening she found her on the news taking steps against sexual assault in front of the state legislature. She was there to support the bill to give protection to the victim, what was more shocking was, she herself was enlisted on the bill.
The techer quoted this incident by saying, "That taught me a small dose of humility and a large dose of humanity."
#6 Love Be The Strongest Of All.
It was her first year being a teacher when a student had joined during the mid sem from a different school. So this newcomer remained turned off and she'd decided to bring him on his feet by hook or by crook. Be it emotional or mental help, she was always there for the little kid but one fine day, during the art and craft class the new boy walked with the scissors and had destroyed another mate's work. She got so pissed off she'd shrugged him away.
While driving back home, she felt bad for her behavior. Later that evening, there was a knock om the door, the kid and his mother were standing on the door with a gift which they gave it to her saying, "we baked this for you...have a good weekend."
The baked stuff acne with a letter that said "Dear Mr Goldman, I love you...I hope you still love me too."
#5 Never Judge A Book By It's Cover.
There was a student this teacher was always suspicious of due to his weird appearance. Cowboy hat, boots on the chair in front of him, seated at the back row. The class was given an assignment as a test to check their capabilities. The student's topic went something like this, "The Use of Allegory and Metaphor in the Works of John Steinbeck."
The teacher was sure he couldn't write this on his own, puzzled, she went to the principal to discuss about this matter. The principal had suggested her to first discuss with him the topic, if he says it correctly and finds himself very much into the topic then he had written on his own. The teacher calls the guy in her room and asks about the topic. Without wasting any moment he readily replies "Well, ma'am, when I was on the rodeo circuit, my partner gave me this book, The Red Pony, because I had to do a school book report and since it was about a horse, me and him figured it would be good. When I read it, though, it was about a lot more than a horse .... "
The teacher was glad she didn't judge him before asking him to clarify indirectly.
#4 Humanity Is Superior!
Being a highly educated teacher, he felt superior of all and was certain enough that there's nothing he could learn from his students when one day, one of his student excused himself to go to the bathroom. On asking for the pass, as there was a rule of not loitering around without an approved pass by any tea her during the class hour, the teacher asked him go without one and return early.
He was 10 minutes later and looked depressed. On asking, he said everything's fine but by the end of the class his expression remained unchanged. The teacher insisted and he said he's got detention by the principal for being in the corridor without any pass. The teacher clarified saying he should have told him he was allowed by him. What the student replied pinched his heart. He said, "Because I didn't want you to get in trouble, sir,"
#3 Let Them Make The Choices.
The students were handed over the syllabus for literature that they had to prepare for the upcoming semester. On asking about any quarries regarding the syllabus, one girl raised her hand and kept forward her statement by saying, "Are you at all surprised we don't read but watch TV when teachers hand out these kinds of reading lists?"
On listening this the teacher recalled her times when even she hated reading such high standard words and immediately went to the principal to take any action to change this and luckily, her wish was granted and the students were allowed to choose any three book of their choice. Surprisingly, they all did really well during their orals.
#2 Teaching Can Be Rewarding As Well!
He was to give a lecture to almost 50 international students at Oxford University on ‘Shakespeare 101’ or ‘An Introduction to Shakespeare’. All he cared about was his paycheck. So, before the class he got drunk, went to the class and started reading the handouts to the class until 10 minutes later one the student stood up and asked him if he could be less boring and little be interesting with the topic. Excited he jumped on his feet as asked the class if they'd want to act on the Helmet. He'd gave away the printed papers to class and they all had fun along with studies
Had the girl not asked him if he could make it less boring, he wouldn't have learned his lesson that teaching is not always for the paychecks.
#1 Students Might Take It But Not Your Son!
He was in a hurry to cover up the topic as it was time and the bell had rang already, until one of the students stood up and said, "You know, just because you're up there teaching, doesn't mean we're learning."
In his years of teaching experience, this was the first time any student had said him something like this. Many students might have felt the same but only he could gather the courage as this kid was his 16 years old son.
