Is This What Students Signed Up For?

Being a good student means the ability to memorize.

Yet, the teacher doesn't know their students names or look them in the eyes.

Teachers should support their students to expand their knowledge.

Instead, they look down on their students who are trying their best to succeed in college.

But with all the stress, social and financial issues,

Teachers should have more sympathy and put themselves in their students' shoes.

At 18 years old, students choose a major for a career that they will be in for the rest of their lives.

But with all this debt, they wonder if they will be able to survive.

They came to college to learn, to think, to see the world in a different way.

But all they really get is a teacher who doesn't care what the students have to say.

Teachers, you are not mighty. You are not omnipotent.

Don't treat students as if they are in imprisonment.

Students, continue to learn even outside of the classroom.

Ask questions. Don't just sit there like a robot or a statue.

Realize that there is so much potential for what you could do.

Why do teachers forget that they were once students too?
