Good Teacher OR Liked Teacher You must choose one! I have found that sometimes being good at what you do is simply not enough. Students who hate the subject, but like the teacher typically work harder in the class. On the other hand, if a student hates the teacher (for teaching well and being tough) their ability to learn is sometimes negated. So, what do you think is more important?

Your school's lesson plan requirements I teach in a district which requires teachers to submit lesson plans to their department supervisor regularly. (The last school I taught in had no such requirement.) Until last year, we were able to submit our own daily plans for the week (they were due every Monday to our supervisor) by either printing them from our websites or submitting them as Word documents. Now, we're required to submit unit plans for each unit we teach. I'm curious to know what's required in other schools.

What do you think of students getting editing help on essays/papers from their parents? Do you explicitly talk to your students about this in advance? Are you specific with them as to what kind of help they can accept and what kind of help would be cheating? I go back and forth with this. I used to be adamant about the students not having anyone edit their papers before they turn them into me. But, it did become clear that not everyone followed that guideline, so that seemed unfair to the kids who did. But, some kids have more resources - parents who are good writers, tutors, etc. - and that is also unfair. As a parent, I have always been hands-off with my daughter's papers. She accuses me of not offering her the help that ALL of her classmates have. I'm thinking maybe I need to be really clear with what they can get help with and what they can't, but am curious what other teachers are doing. Do you have guidelines written down that you share with students and parents? Thanks!
