    What do you do if you found out that 2 of your teachers at school know your grandmother realy well? :confused: They told me "now we can tell on you if you get in trouble".

    Hi Pearl. Well, it could be worse. I work in the same school that my children attend and know ALL of their teachers personally. In fact we also all attend the same church! One piece of advice for you, be beyond reproach!

    LOL, I had to laugh because my daughter will be in my middle school in one more year...half of our congregation teaches there. She won't be able to get away with anything!

    I couldn't either. My parents were involved with everything. I had to behave so I didn't embarrass my parents. I thought it was a drag back then.

    Now I can look back without regrets. I'm not embarrassed about my life here..now I teach here, too!

    It seems unfair when you're young, but believe me. You won't regret staying straight. The most unhappy time of my life was college when no one was there to see what I was doing!

    Take care. God loves you.

    -Margie ;)

    I think I kind of understand yer viewpoint being semi-young

    However I agree with the other posters dont worry about it

    But if the teachers actually made the comment now we can tell on you - Id smack em but thats just me working through authority issues ;)

    In all honesty if they made that comment and that made you feel bad in some way - tell them that -

    Because in my mind that comment was TOTALLY inappropriate unless they followed it with laughter or a just kidding. After all to us young folks it sometimes feels like adults (Oh wait I am an adult) somtimes pick on us - And yes some do -

    My tenth grade geometry teacher was my cousin. She grew up with my dad. And she used to baby sit me. So, I couldn't get away with anything. That was a hard line to draw between Cheryl/teacher. I got in trouble one day because I was right about something musical (she was trying to relate music and math and doing a poor job) that we had seen in a video. She told me that I was wrong, and in the middle of class, I told her to rewind the video and see [​IMG] She wasn't too happy, and I apologized. (But I was right) ;)

    I attend a small school in a small town, so everyone knows everyone.

    My first day here, my Biology teacher asked me if I was as smart as my older brother... (Who graduated 5 years ago!) :rolleyes:

    My teachers know my grandmother, cousins, aunts uncles...

    And it doesn't bother me a bit. :D

    Hi Pearl!

    While in middle school and high school, both of my parents were employed for the school system. I had to endure the same thing for 6 years! :eek: At the time, I felt like I was needlessly singled out and watched over by teachers. And I thought I was a "good kid", too! However, knowing that there were always extra "eyes" watching made me even more on my best behavior. Also, teachers seemed to be more patient and friendly since I was "so-and-so's kid." Sorta extra special TLC. AND,....they were also the first ones to inform my parents of something good that I had done. So it goes both ways. They probably didn't mean for it to come across in a bad way. Hang in there,...it can get worse once you have a boss looking over you! :D
