Dear Dish-it: Teacher Trouble

Dear Dish-it,


Lots of the teachers at my school don’t understand me. They always think I’m doing something wrong when I’m not, and when I try to explain things they just don’t get it – and don’t get me. What should I do?

Dear cuPcaKe,


First of all, don’t worry – you’re not alone. Pretty much everyone has an issue with a teacher or two at some point. After all, no one says you have to get along with and like all of your teachers all of the time. But you do have to respect them and they, in turn, will respect you, too.


RESPECT: Find Out What It Means

It’s not just a famous Aretha Franklin song; it’s a way of life. Teachers are human, too, and if you’re doing things that seem disrespectful, even if in your opinion you’re not doing anything wrong, it’s going to make them treat you a certain way. The key to gaining respect from your teachers is to do what they ask you to do and, when you’re in their classes, to behave the way they expect you to behave. On your own time, you can act how you want. But in their classes, you need to do what they say.


Change it Up

It’s never too late to be a better student. There are some small actions that can make a huge difference in how your teacher feels about you. Probably the easiest thing to do is show up on time to class (teachers love that!). It shows that you’re serious about learning and you respect their time. The next time you walk into a class, make a vow to fully listen to your teacher and pay attention: that means no texting or joking around. And always turn your assignments in on time. Your teachers will notice a difference and you’ll feel better about yourself.


The Extra Mile

You can’t make someone like you; friends, crushes and teachers, too. If your teacher appears to be mean, he or she may just be having a bad day or could be generally unfriendly. If you’re doing everything right and your teacher still doesn’t like you, don’t take it personally. He’s the one with the problem, not you. Continue to be a fabulous student, be polite and do your work and every teacher will love you. Good luck!
