Lately, I have been hearing a lot of stories about students being rude to their teachers. And then the other day in class I witnessed it happen: halfway through class the WiFi stopped working, and there was nothing my professor could do. However, instead of just sending us home, he wanted to use our time wisely, so he had us work on other things that did not require using the WiFi. Some students began making loud comments trying to get his attention about wanting to go home, and one even tried to yell across the room.
Throughout all of it, all I could think was why? I mean, yeah, it would have been nice to get out early, but he clearly was not going to, so what was the point? Teachers or professors, whatever you want to call them, are there to help us, and they deserve our respect. So here is a list of reasons you should respect your teacher.
1. They respect you.
“Treat others how you want to be treated," if you think your teacher is being rude maybe look at how you are treating him or her.
2. They are there to help you learn.
We would not make it very far without an education, and they are the people who provide us with one.
3. They care about you.
They want the best for you, and if something is going wrong they want to help you.
4. They can help you in the future.
Teachers want you to succeed and are more than willing to help.
5. They cannot control everything.
Some things are just out of our hands, and it is not fair to hold teachers responsible for things that go wrong.
6. They have to deal with a lot of shit.
Why make it more difficult? It is not cool, and most of the time the other students think you are annoying, not funny.
7. They decide your grade.
Okay, so this one is more of a joke, but it is true. Your teacher will be more willing to help you out or work with you if you respect them.
8. They are people too.
How would you feel if you were trying to help someone and got attitude in return?
9. They have been in your shoes.
At one point in their lives your teachers were students too, so they understand more than you think.
10. They are not out to get you.
Teachers are trying to to help you do better, they do not want to see you fail.
11. They give up A LOT for us.
Teachers are the hardest workers I know. They worked hard for their title and it is no secret that they do not make the big bucks.
This is just the beginning; there are so many more reasons why you should respect your teachers. It really is not a hard thing to show your teachers the respect they deserve. If you do have a problem or disagree with your teacher, just talk to him or her after class. Being respectful can make life easier for you and your teacher.

Mutual Respect Between Students and Teachers
The relationship between students and teachers should be one of mutual respect. Students should listen to the teacher and try their best in the class. Teachers, on the other hand need to do their best to give their students a quality education and respect them as individuals. There should be a set curriculum, but teachers need to be creative in how they teach what is required. California is considered one of the lowest in terms of education standards. In order for this to change, teachers and students both need to start working towards a solution.
Students need to have more respect for their teachers and take more responsibility for their education. I have noticed a difference in the…show more content…
The only time I have used Calligraphy since was to address my wedding invitations. I did have a creative writing class, which helped me with my writing skills, but because of the amount of work we did it seemed more like a required class. Maybe the schools need to update their electives to reflect what will be useful to the students' futures.
Two big differences I noticed between when I attended high school and now were being able to leave campus for lunch, and writing our own notes when we turned eighteen. Now, because of fighting off campus during lunch as well as tighter security, students have to stay on campus for lunch. I understand the concern for safety, but is the answer taking away their freedom? A few of the students I talked to referred to school as "jail". Most schools have fences all the way around them, and some have metal detectors. One local school put video cameras around campus, yet they don't have enough money for field trips, or updated textbooks.
When I was in High School writing our own notes made us feel like we were being accepted into the adult world. We were responsible for our decisions. If we missed too many classes our grades would suffer. Making the decision of attending class helped prepare me for the responsibility of college. Sometimes giving students the ability to make choices about their lives makes them more responsible. Sure there will be those who take advantage, but are we really being fair by
