After Vivian’s encounter with Jason before, Vivian realizes that she wishes for the same human contact from Jason that she denied her own students in the past. In one of her flashbacks she recalls a hostile encounter with one of her students when she yells, “You can come to this class prepared, or you can excuse yourself from this class, this department, and this university. Do not think for a moment that I will tolerate anything in between … I was teaching him a lesson (Edson 59-60).” Here, Vivian has shown that in the past she was notorious for an uncompromising character. Instead of trying to productively encourage the student to pay attention, she allowed her ego to take over her and lash out on the student. By showing this flashback she is showing irony in the fact that she desires human kindness and is possibly suggesting she is undeserving of it.

Gatto became a schoolteacher because according to him he had nothing better to do, he is an English teacher but he says the he doesn’t only teach English; he teaches school. His students learn seven lessons for life and they are things that can easily be criticized by others who do not understand them and make assumptions. The first is the lesson of Confusion.

It is significant for Scout, as a young child, to know the importance of seeing things from many different viewpoints and not just one. Scout believes Miss Caroline, her school teacher, is not kind because of things that had happened on her first day of school. She was told that Atticus needed to stop teaching her to read, and was punished for being disruptive during class.

It was almost 8 a.m. and I was next, surprisingly I didn’t move due to the lady in front of me. She broke in berserk “One day this youth will stand up against this corrupted government! Oh, wait for it!.” she prophesied like a messiah as she trap more air in her lungs she proceeded with her prophesy “The zenith of change is in the hands of the naive minds you’re charging to study here…in what is suppose to be a public school.” Full of disappointment and hatred she left. For some reason her voice, the way her eyes sweated and the dryness of her skin got tattooed in my brain. But I didn't understand what each of those words meant at that moment they were meaningless for me.
I had this new patient, so I went into the room and introduced myself. I was asking her about her plans of the day and other questions that I needed to know. She took these questions like I was nagging her, which I was not at all and it is what we have to do with every patient, and she started yelling at me for no reason. She continued to tell me that she doesn’t want me asking her any questions or to help me unless she asks, so I continued to stand

I was just happy that I got to miss learning about subtraction in favor of playing games. Little did I know at the time, this woman actually had a hidden motive behind this simple card game. Earlier, my teacher had requested for me to see the school’s speech therapist after noticing that I struggled with a lisp. More specifically, I had an incredibly hard
When I was in English class in 8th grade, our teacher performed a test on us, which we were unaware of until it was over. During class the teacher began to berate a student, calling the student unintelligent and lazy. This was a student that other people may have viewed as “unmotivated” or a “burnout” when she was in fact, very intelligent. But because she was commonly stereotyped, the teacher began to pick on this student. The student was well aware that the teacher was doing this as an experiment in her class.
