    I'm not yet a teacher, so I took the test based on what I "would" do. It says I am fair and balanced. :D

    Yea, it sure does. I was beginning to think I might be over-strict until I saw that just changing the language made a difference. That sure is STUPID!!!!!!!!!

    I put German down, that's what I took in high school, and I still got fair and balanced. I bet you guys are being harsh somewhere else. :D

    I wouldn't take the test as gospel truth but I do believe there are some truths in it. Nevertheless, the test does have some errors same as any experiment...some of my answers were not there, the choices were poor or undesirable, and I could have chosen multiple choices.

    All in all, I think I am a fair and balanced teacher who seem to be popular. :)

    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 favortism 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.

    You have the Popular Teacher Personality:
    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.

    LOL! This is so true. I have kids that would rather be in my room than eating lunch. But I rarely have behavior problems which is nice since there are so many other problems I already have to deal with.

    Strict Disciplinarian here. I don't feel that's a bad thing, either. We have structure, but we learn and we have tons of fun.

    You can all be popular and balanced and fair! I don't mind being the "mean" one (according to the quiz), although every time I tell my kids how mean I am, they all giggle and scream "NOOOOO YOU'RE NOT!!! HEHEHEHE!"

    So TRUE!!! My classes are always well-known for their work ethics and behavior around the school. And indeed, I have slipped up a few times or called the wrong shot, and my students are the first to challenge me on them. I hear them out, and usually alter my decision afterwards!

    I have the Fair and Balanced Personality. I think that is true. My kids know that I am fair and structured! They respond well to the structure and my expectations are high, but attainable.

    I'm 'fair and balanced', also. And, this year I have one who is keeping watch over my every move. If I am 'unfair or imbalanced' he notices it every time and calls me on it. :rolleyes:What a PITA!!!!! I keep telling him to mind his own business and stop doing my job!

    Ich bin fair and balanced,

    although lately I am feeling mean as sin and definitely unbalanced. Dangerously unbalanced. In fact, it's a good thing I'm on Spring Break. I know my lazer eye death glare needs adjusting because it's been set on high for too long.

    OK, I'm happy to recieve a compliment, but how on earth do the answers to 10 or a dozen multiple choice questions tell anyone that???
