Teachers are people, leading us to our life-goals and the subjects we have at school are very important for us. School gives us secondary education and all subjects are essential. To do good at school one should always listen to a teacher at the lesson, do homework and spend 2-3 hours a day, studying independently. I have a lot of friends among my classmates. We usually spend our free time together after classes. I consider school years are happy for me.
If I were a director of my school, I would make some changes in our school life. First of all, I would organize my lessons in an interesting and fascinating way: my pupils would be involved in various creative activities: watching educative movies, using modern equipment, discussing topical issues, having some researches.
I’d like to be patient, attentive to all the students’ opinions. My main aim would be to teach students to be responsible for their deals, to argue if it is necessary, to be able to observe a problem from different points of view. In the school of my dream I would also include more excursions and school trips in the schedule.
We asked our schoolmates from 5-10 grades to tell about their favourite teachers, subjects and what they would change in our school if they were teachers or a director of the school.
Here you can read about their thoughts:
I haven’t got any favourite subjects. I like them all. At IT we work on computers. At English we write, read stories, learn new words, listen to dialogues and speak English. At History we study the past. At Music we sing songs and listen to classic and modern music. At PE we run, play volleyball and basketball. In winter we ski and skate. If I were a director I would make a swimming pool. I like swimming very much!
My favourite lesson is English. It’s important for me because I want to communicate with people in English. Our teacher tells us many interesting facts from the history and culture of England, America, Australia and other English-speaking countries. Recently we have read about beautiful sights of London, its parks and museums, cathedrals and bridges, customs and traditions of Britain.
If I were a director or a teacher of our school I’d organize a music club, where we could sing every day. And during the breaks all the pupils will be able to sing and dance! I like music!
I like sport. I am for healthy way of life. There is a football section in our school. Our football team is a champion of Russia.
If I were a director I would make a hockey section too, because many of my friends love hockey. I wouldn’t start every lesson with checking homework. I`d ask children about their health, temper, about their pets for example.
Then, I would make the breaks between lessons longer. The next step is holidays. Summer holidays are long enough but I would make autumn, winter and spring holidays longer to let pupils to spend more time out or to travel.
If I were a director of the school I would introduce a school uniform, because it creates a beautiful design of a school. Also it is prestigious. In high school, since the tenth form, students should choose which subjects to study in depth. It would be very useful for students, because they would study subjects they would pass exams.
In the school of my dream I would also include more excursions and school trips in the schedule. I think it is very important to travel with classmates and to share impressions. This is the idea of the school of my dream.
Director of the school is a very important and responsible person. He managers and controls the school every day.
If I were a director of the school I would introduce a school uniform, because it creates a beautiful design of a school. Also it is prestigious. The beginning of the school would be at 9:00 am, because 8:00 am is very early for pupils. I would have thought the situation with our the school canteen: each class should eat at certain time, to avoid queues. We should use modern technologies in education. In high school, since the tenth form, students should choose which subjects to study in depth. It would be very useful for students, because they would study subjects they would pass exams. I believe that these changes will benefit the work of the school.
If I were an official of our school I would make a swimming pool, expand a canteen and auditoriums. I would like to organize a music club and hire more workers.
If I were a director of our school I would organize a hockey section and shower room in the sports gym, expand medical office.
If I were a teacher I would try to create such atmosphere, when all students want to get knowledge.
If I were a director or a teacher of our school I would take into consideration all students’ opinions and wishes. Also I would encourage them.
We wrote the article on this topic in our school magazine «TeenLife» (№ 8, p.14-15, http://teenlife67.ksdk.ru/pages.php?pid=1341).
Also we made the film about our school and its problems: http://nsportal.ru/video/my-school.
