I was afraid to approach my teacher that morning because of her mood that I decided to remain uncomfortable and suffer in silence. Miss Y turned to the class and said there is to be no talking for the rest of the day and anyone who talks will be punished. Being seated at the edge of the seat I quietly whispered to the other student next to me to move around a little so that I can get space to write properly as half of my book was off the desk. Miss Y turned around and asked me why I was I was talking when she said no one was to speak. I tried to explain to her the situation and she shouted at me to shut up.
The teacher goes over to the student, tears the exam paper in two, and dumps it in the dustbin. On hearing the news, the students parent’s infuriated about the teachers action confront the school principal demanding an explanation for the teacher’s improper use of power. The questions arise on ethical and legal principles that the principal need to consider while analyzing the matter. The principal should determine from the student whether the accusation of copying is true or a false assumption. The teacher did not commit any criminal offense discarding the paper.
Case Study February 22, 2012 The Forgotten Team Member Case Study: How did the team get into this situation? The team got into this situation, first of all, by judging the other group members before getting to know them. Christine, the leader of the group, immediately classified each team member by her initial judgments of them. Janet was struggling with time management between her part time jobs and school and Christine didn’t respect this. Since Janet couldn’t make it to meetings they gave her what was “left over” and didn’t even keep her in mind.
A teacher in an advanced math class frequently "puts down" girls in his class. One day, when Ruth did not understand a particular question, he said, "That’s why girls should not be in math!" Another time he stated, "Boys and intelligent girls will find the assignment easy." Only yesterday, after Judy got an answer wrong, he snapped, "Shouldn’t you be taking home economics instead?" -That’s more a gender related discrimination not really sexually related.
I try looking for a job first to take care of my daughter and pay for my finances but that wasn’t successful. I needed to have a high school degree and a few years’ experience. It was a few days before I contacted Student Services at a nearby school and enrolled immediately. My journey has just begun and I never knew the road to success could be so difficult. I had many sleepless nights and so many assignments I thought I would never finish.
My wife would send me emails stating that Rex was not well. She was very aware of the severity and sought out help from the school. She was sadly turned away, because they did not have a counselor to provide the deployment group counseling that is needed at times of war. She was in a battle of her own that I would not fully understand for seven months. I came time for my something that I had dreamed of.
One afternoon a few girls were in the locker room discussing their menstruation. I realized that everyone has something to say but myself. One of the girls said, “Look, everyone, Moe is quiet. She is still a stupid baby.” It started to get on my nerves in junior high school. When I reached high school I started to get really angry with that word.

First, she had this way of making her students feel ignorant. From the very first day of class Mrs. Garvin seemed to be very rude and abrupt. When a student feels uncomfortable and threatened it is very hard for one to learn in this kind of environment. I was scared to raise my hand and ask questions because she seemed to talk down at you and she made you feel like an idiot for even asking a question. An educator should have the ability to make their students want to learn.
