How to Make Your Teachers Like You

Aug 25, 2015

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.

all it took was one conversation, one look, one smile, one laugh and I was gone. Gone into oblivion. Disappeared  into some alternate universe for just me and him. His eyes were captivating and his words were infectious. As I fell harder the image of myself I once saw was slowly fading to make room for his.. He became everything I wanted. He became my life in more ways than one. I opened up to him. The was way he made it so easy was almost like casting a spell on me. I no longer had control over my own body. It was all him. But soon our love became my love for him..our hearts became further and further apart because little ddid I know our love was non existaant and it was  always just my love. my love that he used to his advantage to get to my heart.. and once he got there he stole it. he stole my heart tore it apart and left me to clean up the mess. He was a criminal.

So I guess I'll take w shot at this,   I am Mount Everest, Steep, Up and Downs. The world around,  walking all over me,  I am of whispers. A misunderstood mountain, They pray for safety that I won’t kill them That cannot help them.  I am not evil,  I am not a killer, I don’t hurt others for joy. I act strong and hid in the fog, But I can’t always hide. I break, I fall Avalanches occur from my surface.   I don’t mean to kill I don’t mean to break, I’m sorry if you become my victim I don’t mean it I am veiled in the clouds and fog No one knowing how I feel. You may ask, But I never tell I may regret not talking, but you don’t get it. I am misunderstood, I am shown to be strong, I am called mighty, I am high, To most I cannot fall. But no one gets it, I break, I fall, I hurt Just as those who climb me, I feel pain, I suffer   I am a mountain but I do cry Those storms that some die in, They blamed them for testing me I do not mean it I cannot help if I feel pain I am me, I am like you I have hills to climb, Life’s a climb, I am a climb There are steeps to overcome I may not make it, I may fall, I will fall Attempt to get up, May fail   I am not always the strong mountain, The one others come for help I need help to, You may cry to me I cry away from others, hidden I show no emotion, I store it But it explodes, I shatter, I show the true colors of my feelings I fall and it may seem like most ignore There are those who stop and help I am Mount Everest High and Steep, I to have to climb, The Mountain of Life

Welcome to Kidzworld, how are you? Here are some tips on how to survi- I mean, have a good time. 1, no swearing or saying copyrighted company names. they will just get replaced with hashtags (i.e ####) 2, if you're on chat, no cyberbullying (this one isn't from personal experience, but still!)! 3, if people start to get annoying on chat, just block 'em.
