I believe girls are better in the classroom because they say how they feel and they seem to stay quiet and do their work. Unlike boys, they are very loud, they don’t quite listen to you and they don’t like to stay on task.

Well to me it depends because my histrory teacher only helps girls he likes and my chemistry teachers only help the boys pass. My history teacher will pass any girl who will give them his number and my chemistry teacher will pass any boys who will look at her. I think that gender plays a huge role in a students success because, if they think the teacher is all that they will try and be in his or her face all day just to pass. Most teacher will feel stupid passing a student beacuse they think that him or her is attractive. SO I BELIEVE IT JUST DEPENDS ON THE SITUATUION

I have just begun my profession as a teacher and as a student teacher, I have observed that gender does not matter at least wehn you are teaching the early years. If students know that you are easy to get along with, they can see a friend in you, it would hardly take them time to love you

As a student teacher, I have observed that gender isn't really an issue, atleast when one is teaching the Early Years.I have just begun to get a hang of this profession.Its likely, that if they understand you,know if you are easy to get along with, if they can find a good friend in you, it would hardly take them a week or two to love you.

I agree with Bonnie's comments. but I have a problem with the door swinging one way. It seems to me that people often want others to understand where they are coming from but assume that they know where the other side is coming from with out listening.
"she was loud, wrong and insistent. I just ignored her"
is a qoute from Bonnie's post. True understanding and communication comes through listening no just waiting to talk. If you ignore someones opinion you can never know where they are coming from

I do agree with your comment but I often find that when something like this is stated it is often not reciprocated. People want everyone to understand where they are coming from and assume they know where everyone else is coming from and therefore don't need to listen to their opinion.
