I Am Clever
Band practice at cadets tonight was... interesting... to say the least.

I was teaching some of the Basic Level theory to the beginner cadets (theory levels go from Basic to 5), and they DID. NOT. CARE.

A couple of them were playing around with a cell phone on at least one occasion (they're not supposed to have them at cadets), and I'm pretty sure a couple of them were holding hands or other stuff under the table a few times.

It just really annoys me. It's like, "If you don't care to learn - why even bother SHOWING UP??? I'm the one who has to teach you, and if you're not even trying, them why should I waste my breath? I have BETTER things I could be doing."

And I had cadets answering my questions with goofball answers:

Me: "What do you use to separate sections of music?" (Ans. = bar line)

Cadet: "A brick wall?"

And this is a sample of what I have been getting for the past 3 weeks. I am seriously going to talk to one of the officers about this. I am NOT going to let them walk all over me and derail my class like that.


(And this was even AFTER I told them distinctly NOT to act up in my class.


On another note: I don't understand grade 11 Physics. I didn't understand Grade 10 Physics, so I don't know why I decided to take it this year.

Take the cell phone away from them and tell them they have can have it back at the end of class or sometime next week. ;)

And welcome to the wonderful world of teaching, you unfortunately have the class who does not care, beating them with their instruments might make you feel better, but does not help in the long run.

Or there's the old, 'If you can't be bothered to learn, please leave my class and don't come back' line.

As for Physics, on your on, I took Biology in highschool myself. :(

*hugs* It'll get better, just remember to choose a good spot hiding the bodies. ;)
