    "You have the Fair and Balanced Personality: You are a teacher who students can really depend on to be fair. You are consistent and balanced in your approach. You rarely raise your voice and you almost always treat every student the same. No favoritism in your room. Wonderful!
    Seriously though...: Fair and balanced teachers make teaching seem easy. They have less disruptions in their classes because students realize that they will be dealt with according to the rules but in a fair and consistent way. If you ever slip up and do something that students perceive as unfair or inconsistent, don't worry - they'll be happy to point it out."

    I think this is true - it's how I try to be. :) But less disruptions... errrr... :rolleyes:

    You have the Popular Teacher Personality:
    Kids love you. Other teachers want to be you. Students get each year's new schedule hoping your name is on it. You are someone who really knows how to get along with the kids. You are funny and cool in a non-geeky way. Congratulations!
    Seriously though...:
    All kidding aside, life is easier for a popular teacher in many ways. However, there are some drawbacks. Students never leave you alone!!! They are always hanging around your room after school. You have to be careful not to become too friendly with kids and allow this to cause you to decrease the quality of your teaching.


    This is true. I don't see it as much with being a student teacher, but when I taught preschool it was true. Parents loved me, children in other classes loved me, the people at the school loved me..... It sometimes wasn't great though because the kids sometimes got away with this they shouldn't:love:

    You know some of the questions were hard, because I would have done maybe two of the answers. Ex. first week of school I would have them get to know each other without worrying about curriculum, but I would also stress rules and routine. Plus I taught first grade, so the high school questions were a guess for me.

    But... there were a few questions I just had to choose an answer. My real answer wasn't there.

    I have a Popular Teacher Personally.

    Well, I can't tell you how many times I have had students tell me that I was mean and that they are not coming back to school again. I even had one student not want to get off the bus one morning because he forgot he told me the day before that he wasn't coming back -- I actually had to carry him off of the bus :lol:.

    Strict Disciplinarian - Not true at all and my students would agree...although when I do finally decide to let down the hammer, it's not pretty.

    :lol:, my students know that when the lights go out and I tell them that they need to sit at their desks with there heads down that I shouldn't even hear them breathe. I usually don't even have to tell them anything, I just get each of them to announce to the class what they can do to make them have a better day so that their teacher will be happy.

    I first came out as a Strict Disciplinarian. I then changed one thing (took German out of my list of languages)...and I came up Fair and Balanced. German is such a harsh language!!:p
