How to Make Your Teachers Like You

Back to school time means a new year and a fresh start, especially if you’re going to a new school. If you’re someone who strives for good grades, it’s important to make a great first impression on your teachers. While they may not admit it, some teachers judge students right off the bat. And one wrong move could put you in their bad books—an opinion that can be difficult to change later on.

The Do’s and Don’ts for Students

Think about what teachers look for in a good student. They want students who behave, participate, complete assignments on time, and put effort into their work. They don’t like Chatty Cathy’s—students who talk during class, even while the teacher is instructing. They don’t respect students who sleep on their desks, or doodle, or (especially) text message during class. And they don’t like rudeness. If you get detention on your first day, you know you’ve got a problem.

Participation vs Class Clown

Teachers love students who participate. And a lot of them give participation marks. So if you know the answer, volunteer. But remember, there’s a difference between participating, and being obnoxious. Most teacher’s don’t appreciate the Class Clowns, who often speak up but only to make their classmates laugh.

Complete Your Work

It’s simple and obvious, but it’s often overlooked. Completing your work on time shows the teacher that you are organized, trustworthy and that you have a great work ethic. Make your work neat, and keep your binder organized for brownie points. Putting extra effort into your work also doesn’t hurt. If you can get an A+ instead of an A, why wouldn’t you?

Teacher’s Pet

Not every teacher appreciates students who suck up. Most can see through that. Your best bet is to be nice, do what the teacher asks of you and smile. Positivity can go a long way.

Be bold and initiate a short chat. This will help you to learn those little things that will come in handy later because everyone loves knowing that someone actually listened to them and cared enough to remember the small details about them. Listen carefully and be attentive to the things she tells you so that you will have them for future reference. As you talk, notice if she gives you any signs, special words or hints. All girls are different. Is she shy or outgoing? Does she act like this around other guys? Look at her body language. Leaning in, uncrossed legs, nervous voice, and dilated pupils (especially), are all signs she likes you. Another sign is if she laughs at your boring, stupid jokes. (Beware: Don't use bad jokes as a test, or you'll risk looking like a comedy dork.) She may not be able to look you straight in the eye. She might smile and laugh a lot because she is worried about giving too much away. Check for the smile. A girl that's interested in you will usually immediately smile when you start a conversation with her. The smile may disappear quickly if she's shy, but it's hard to hide an unexpected strong emotion. If she's not romantically interested, she'll likely look at you inquisitively, but she won't express any particular interest.

The first book that was read to me by my learning buddy in Sunnybrook School was Harry potter and the Sorcerer's stone. I was bowled over by the book and it took me to a different world. Harry, Ron and Hermione became my friends as well.
