And it's not easy, trying to make new connections with teachers, having left behind all of your old ones.
So today I'd like to share with you... my Top Five Tips for getting in your teachers' good books!
1. Play hard to get.
By which I mean: BUNK LESSONS! You don't want to be too keen, so just skip a few lessons here and there, otherwise you could end up looking like a right nerd, which you definitely don't want.
2. Be characterful.
Who doesn't like the cheeky scamp of the class? Nobody, so make sure that that cheeky scamp is you. Start out with small things, like putting pins on chairs, hiding all of the whiteboard pens, attaching "Kick me" notes to the teachers' backs- that kind of thing. Should work a treat!
3. Bring cake to class.
And speaking of treats... a slice of cake never hurt anybody. So offer to make cake for the class. And write your teacher's name on the cake with a love heart underneath. If that doesn't win them over, nothing will!
4. Boast. A LOT.
Everyone loves someone who is confident and open- so be sure to tell your teacher all of your achievements. Maybe print it out in a list and leave it in a conspicious place on their desk- and don't forget to be thorough! Think of it as a CV, but remember that you should also verbalise these achievements by talking about them in class.
So there you have it- the four best (or worst) ways to be the teachers' favourite!
