Default Proper teachers

Just out of interest, how many of the posters in here are Teachers?

I know many teachers on this site. What subject would you or you wife need to learn?

Na, I think we have gone as far as we need to in School. Just interested if this site attracts mainly professionals (including proper teachers)

There's an IMproper teacher on here - for those of us who are naughty occasionally, and need corrective measures.........

I think a lot of people could do with some corrective measures in these forums - it's a good thing my riding crop broke last week or you'd all be in trouble.

I'm interested in Op's definition of a 'proper' Teacher. Does Sir mean PGCE or TESOL?

Yep I barely have time for anything other than lunches, coffee mornings and mani/pedi's, I couldn't possibly fit in a profession. hahaha

What constitutes a proper teacher?

What other kind are there?

I was taught by a few: Miss Standing, the Headmistress at my primary school, who saw fit to threaten us with being cut up into 64 pieces and sent back to our parents in a shoe box (which I can still remember nearly 50 years on, and I have a crap memory), and Mr I-Can't-Remember-His-Name-But-He-Was-A-Grade1-Bastard, my TD teacher at high school, who demonstrated to any boy who was unable to get a sufficiently sharp point on his pencil just how sharp it should be by selecting one such and jabbing it into the pad on the palm just below the boy's thumb, and Mr Swinburne who, although a damned good maths teacher, was prone to standing very close to selected boys with his flies at half-mast and with a particular tilt to his hips.

As well as coming across a few during my stint as a parent governor in my kids' primary school: teachers so inept at social interaction and with such narrow views that I really hope they didn't stray one jot from the curriculum (not that my kids seem to have suffered from the experience--nor me from mine, I suppose), but would I employ any of them if I was in the position to decide? Er, No.

Thankfully, like the majority of your examples, teachers like this were around half a century ago (I remember them too) but not many, if any today.

These days they wouldn't get very far before being shown the door (that's if they ever got through Uni/college qualified in the first place).
