Tricky old teachers aren’t just the creepy, awkward teachers who sit next to you in class, they can also be your most awkward teachers.
We all have them, and the more uncomfortable they make us, the more likely we’ll end up with a teacher that we can’t stand.
Here’s what you need to know about the most uncomfortable teachers in the classroom.1.
“I’m the teacher’s daughter”Teachers have a reputation for being good parents.
The idea that your child is the one who makes the school experience a good one has been a long time in the making.
A recent study revealed that over the course of a typical year, teachers who teach are much more likely to have at least one child with a learning disability than teachers who do not.
A study conducted by the National Center for Educational Statistics found that for every year that children were in school, the average time between them going to school and receiving their first academic lesson was two months.
If a teacher has a child with autism or learning disabilities, they’re likely to spend a lot of time with them.
Even if the child doesn’t have a disability, they are often stressed, bored, or stressed out.
The average number of times a teacher will spend with their child is one to four.2.
“You’re the teacher and I’m the student”As the saying goes, if you’re a bad student, you’re probably a good teacher.
Teachers who are known to be abusive are also more likely than other teachers to make inappropriate comments or behavior toward students.
According to a 2015 study by the Department of Education, 42 percent of teachers surveyed felt that students were “sickened by the teacher because of their position” when they first began working at a school.3.
“That’s not a word I would use”One of the most common complaints from students is that the teacher is condescending, judgmental, or dismissive toward their learning style.
A 2007 study by Rutgers University found that teachers who have a “negative, dismissive, or hostile attitude toward students with disabilities are more likely not to use a specific learning aid” and that their negative attitude was also associated with lower grades.4.
“It’s a long way to get to the top”While we may not like to admit it, the teacher who sits next to us in class is not the teacher we want to be.
A 2011 study published in Psychology Today found that people with disabilities have been more likely, in the past 30 years, to be placed in a job that does not provide a safe and supportive environment for them.
According the study, teachers with disabilities tend to have less experience, are less knowledgeable, and are more judgmental than other employees.5.
“She’s the boss”Teacher-student relationships can often be uncomfortable.
A 2013 study by Cornell University found students with developmental disabilities who were taught by teachers who were less experienced or less competent were more likely later in life to suffer from depression, anxiety, and suicide.
In addition, the students who were coached by teachers with developmental needs were more than twice as likely to experience a mental health crisis during the first year after leaving school.6.
“Just keep working harder”While it’s tempting to try to put yourself out there by working harder, it can be difficult to ignore the fact that teachers often are not the most effective teachers.
A 2014 study by Yale University found a correlation between the quality of teachers and their effectiveness, as well as the amount of time students spend with teachers and students.
In the study of more than 7,000 elementary and middle school students, those who were teachers who received the most feedback from their students and the least feedback from other teachers rated their performance higher.7.
“Your kid is just like you”Teaching students can be tough work, but it’s important to remember that students don’t always need you to give them good feedback.
For instance, in a 2009 study, psychologists at the University of Minnesota found that when students are allowed to feel a teacher’s feelings and their own needs, their behavior improves and they are less likely to engage in inappropriate behavior.8.
“Don’t let your kid be a distraction”When we talk about teaching students, we tend to think of them as people who need to be in charge of themselves.
This isn’t always the case, and many teachers feel a responsibility to help students succeed in the school environment.
While it’s great to have a student in charge, a teacher who does not have a real relationship with her student can create a very hostile environment for the student.9.
“If you’re not going to listen to me, then don’t talk to me”We all have a teacher, and sometimes the best way to help your child succeed is to listen and help them succeed.
A 2012 study published by the University at Buffalo found that if a teacher is a student who is often not in control of their emotions
