For the most part, my teachers have been unmemorable and not particularly helpful. This is mainly because I usually don't need much help with my studies but for the students who do need extra help, there isn't much that's done for them. Tutoring is offered, but it's usually just a review of notes then you're sent home. They're normally quick to reply to emails but often slow in updating their grades on Powerschool. Our school's teachers have a wide range of teaching styles. This is both good and bad. A few are fun, lively, and genuinely interested in students learning. Others are no-nonsense types, which isn't necessarily bad, but not helpful when you can clearly tell that teacher doesn't want to be bothered with your concerns. Collectively, they're good teachers, nothing remarkable or overly negative to say about them.
Parents and administration did seem to pay the most attention during football season because it brought more money into the school, but other clubs still had ample support. I played basketball, and I can't remember a time when the bleachers were empty. The students loved going out and showing their Panther Pride at our rival school. The art club and excellent art teacher allow students to express themselves without the pressure to "fit in." Lastly, there was a student death during the school year, and the whole school pulled together to grieve and support his family. The school passed out ribbons in respect and offered counseling to students. Liberty County is a great, untraditional small town. Being located outside an Army base ensures diversity and open hearts.
The teachers that thought in the advanced classes cared so much that they taught us as much as they cram into our monkey brains and I loved it. Every time I took a "regular" class, I felt like I was being dropped back two grade levels. None of the teachers tried very hard in those classes and it showed.
It seemed to me that all around the student population hadn't gotten the proper lessons they needed earlier to behave like respectable humans. The students didn't care and they did their best to make it harder on their teachers by fighting with them on everything they could. I believe that over time this is what caused the teachers to not care as much about teaching us, whether it be the curriculum or anything a teacher might be able to teach to a child.
