Something I notice with the younger teachers is that they want to be friends with their students. The students seem to expect this. I see our two new teachers (first years) in the classroom and playground and the kids are all trying to be friends with them. They tried it with me too. But I didn't fall for it.
One of the new teachers wears clothing I would call inappropriate, but I don't know if that is out of jealousy or not. She has the most fantastic body and wears clothes that show that off... I learnt early on in the piece about clothing. I was almost "kicked out" of a high school I had placement at during training because the skirts I was wearing were too short (just below the knee) It was a polynesian school and because I was in a position of power as a teacher and older than the kids therefore deserving of respect they expected me to wear long skirts to prove that. The senior students also wore long (uniform) skirts, while the junior students wore mid calf skirts, so my skirts just below the knee were like a mini skirt or something.
This teacher also flirts with the students. I don't really know how to bring it up with her. My year 12's hang on for her to come into her own classroom (I teach them in her room) just for a glimpse at her. It is very cute... but she'll flick her hair, bend over just right, laugh and flash her eyelashes... Just not quite right. I can see something going wrong... but not sure how to stop it.
They're about the "worst" teachy things I know of. (Well, apart from the real dodgy stuff)
