"comment_text": "As a former teacher of sorts, you have to keep in mind that invariably you're far more important to every student than they are to you, right off the bat, just due to their education being a formative part of their lives and a literally larger chunk of their time alive so far.\nSo to a professor, it was just one class the student took, but then on again, the student's individual magnitude on the teacher's life was to start with relatively insignificant, next to what the professor could impart through his words and actions.\nI severely doubt some of the best teachers I've had the luck of having really remember me, and I'm not bothered by that. I'm already thankful that they chose to do good with what time they had on the front stage of my childhood."

"comment_text": "The best teacher I've ever had was my high school French teacher, the dude was incredibly bright and talented (played like 11 instruments, spoke 6 languages fluently etc) and I learned more in 2 years of his class than I've ever learned from any class on any subject. After I graduated my best friend's little brother was in a really bad car accident and was in a coma for a while... he wasn't the brightest kid to begin with and the head injury didn't help matters. One day I went over to my friend's house and walked in the door, and there was my French teacher sitting at the table with lil bro, teaching him French and just generally helping him out with things and keeping him company. He kept it up for months, and never missed an appointment and even years later lil bro could speak passable French with me (which was shocking considering he barely spoke passable English). I know it meant a lot to him, but it also gave me a new level of respect for a man who I already respected more than pretty much anyone."

I let a bad teacher ruin it for me in 8th grade and sadly even the wonderful teacher i had the following year was unable to undo the damage done by a mean spirited, spiteful teacher. \nIt really bothers me in hindsight, especially since i had such wonderful teachers previously. Despite 10 years being taught by loving teachers, 1 year with a bad one ruined the good opinion i had for french class. Not even the pineapple could do that before.\nI could get an extra 15k a year by being bilingual, probably more."

"comment_text": "I've been teaching at churches since 1988 in one way or another. I spent a large portion of that time working with pre-teens. Before I left FL, every now and then some young adult would come up to me and tell me what an impact I had had on their lives. It was always truly humbling. I remembered them all, some quicker than others, but all of them. What I quite often didn't remember is what they said I said that impacted them so much. I hear it and I'm like, \"I'd never say that.\" Any teacher worth his salt is going to love those kids on some level and invest himself into them as they learn from him. Isn't that what teaching is, taking a part of me, and making it a part of you?"

I don't remember much from that time but I do remember one day all of my teachers came in a group and visited me in the inpatient ward. I was so happy to see them all. I had confided a lot of my troubles in them the year previous and often stayed after school very late in their classrooms because I didn't want to go home. \nNow that I am 20, I can only imagine how heart broken they all must have been. Thank you to all the teachers out there who have let a kid use their classroom as a safe haven."

That's what happens when you have 1000 kids in each grade, the teachers often \"can't make exceptions\" (read: don't care enough to make exceptions) even if you really want to not fail."

They gave me carbon copy notebooks so I could get notes from classmates and they had a paraprofessional transport me in my wheelchair between classes but nobody cared to help me get caught up.

"comment_text": "About 6 years ago I got run over. As in I was hit by a car when I was crossing the road. I was very lucky that I \u2018only\u2019 came away with a few fractures - fractured skull, hip, and ankle. I couldn\u2019t walk properly for a few weeks and had issues with dizziness and balance problems for over a year afterwards due to the skull fracture. \nAnyway, I called my employer first thing in the morning the day after the accident. I told them what had happened and how I was injured. I didn\u2019t get an \u2018are you ok?\u2019 or a \u2018hope you heal and get better soon\u2019 - instead I got a frosty silence and a sigh, followed by \u2018so I take it you\u2019re going to be late for work today. What time will you be in?\u2019 I was gobsmacked. \nTo add insult to injury, I was a temp at that company - although I had worked there for almost 2 years - so I didn\u2019t get sick pay. I only allowed myself 2 weeks off, which was as long as it took for me to be able to hobble (with assistance) and lift my head up without feeling like I was spinning on a playground roundabout. \nAfter two weeks I went back into work. Still very visibly injured. I went to my usual desk only to find someone else in my spot. I asked the manager what was going on and she told me \u2018oh you\u2019ve moved departments now, you\u2019re on QA.\u2019\nWonderful. They\u2019d moved me to the one apartment they knew I didn\u2019t want to be on. They\u2019d suggested this move in the past as they needed more QA people but we were \u2018allowed\u2019 to turn down the offer and choose a different as long as there were availabilities elsewhere. Clearly they saw my absence as an excellent opportunity to move me without a choice. \nAnd then... to add shock and frustration to the insult and injury, a few days after my return our whole department was called into a meeting with the team manager, who looked distraught and had clearly been crying. \n\u2018I\u2019ve got bad news. I\u2019d rather you hear it from me rather than from rumours and gossip. It\u2019s about Katie and Kelly.\u2019\nKatie & Kelly (not their real names!) were sisters who both worked on that dept. They\u2019d started about 3 months before I did, which meant they were there early enough to have been given a permanent job. \nWe all thought something terrible had happened, people were tearing up, I was convinced manager was going to say one or both of them had died. \n\u2018Katie and Kelly had an accident this morning...\u2019\nGASP we definitely think they\u2019re dead now. \n\u2018Their car broke down on the way in this morning. It was on a busy road so they got out and stood on the verge, a few metres from the road. But Katie, who was driving, left her car door open. A lorry came past and didn\u2019t change lanes in time, it drove into the open car door and and ripped it off the car. It\u2019s so lucky they had already got out and into a safe. I don\u2019t want to imagine what would\u2019ve happened had they still been in the car.\u2019 (More tears)\nMost of my colleagues seemed to feel the same way I did - the girls were fine, no one was hurt, why the tears?\nManager told us the girls would be off for \u2018at least two weeks\u2019 so that they could relax and come to terms with their experience. \u2018We\u2019re still going to mark them as here, that way they won\u2019t have to lose any pay.\u2019\nShe added that she would be starting a collection box in the aim to raise funds for a new car or to fix the broken one. \nMeanwhile I still had visible cuts/bruises and a very obvious limp and I didn\u2019t get a \u2018get well soon\u2019 card, or even a text, whilst I was off, nor did anyone mention it when I came back in. This in itself hadn\u2019t bothered me before, I\u2019d just told myself \u2018it\u2019s probably the same for everyone.\u2019 \nWhen the \u2018get well soon\u2019 card was passed around with a jar already containing about \u00a3100 worth of notes I couldn\u2019t bring myself to sign it."

"comment_text": "I appreciate your enthusiastic optimism, but most people only want to help other people under certain circumstances.\nWe usually want to help kids, unless they seem like \"thugs\" from shitty socioeconomic circumstances, or unless they're from another country we've decided we don't like, or are otherwise distant enough that we can somehow justify ignoring their basic needs, like refugee children, victims of organized religions covering up widespread violence and sexual abuse, and the classic- starving children in Africa.\nWe usually want to help adults, unless doing so seems prohibitively expensive to us, financially, emotionally, or socially. We tend not to want to \"waste\" resources on people we feel are a lost cause, like drug-addicted people, those with mental illnesses, the poor, the homeless, that sort of thing.\n\nThink of the last time someone said to you \"Excuse me, can you tell me where...?\"\n\nEveryone can think of this instance because it costs us next to nothing to help someone this way, and we still gain all the happy feel good benefits of having helped someone. I've been homeless twice, and when you're forced into that position you learn very quickly that everyone tells you \"let me know if there's anything I can do to help,\" but few people will actually do anything when you require it of them, unless they can do so without sacrificing anything significant on their part.\nThe whole reason a photo of any teacher going to extra mile to do their job is considered at all exceptional on this site in the first place is because Iran is an enemy of the country most redditors hail from. Iranians are the other, and to see them simply being human is an unusual depiction of them in US media.\nCertainly there will always be people who have an urge to help others, but it will always be easier to choose not to help someone who isn't in your face, literally begging for your assistance, and sometimes even then it's too much to expect them to forfeit anything to actually help them."

And even when they do, you still spend 90% of the day alone. The beds get very uncomfortable. You can't shower after surgery, so you spend a few days gathering filth on your body and smelling like death. When you are able to shower, you have to cover your surgical site with plastic, making it awkward as fuck. You have a tube up your dick constantly vacuuming your bladder, that pulls a little every time you move, and pinches like hell. You have to wear inflating leg braces while in bed to keep your muscles stimulated while not walking. You are tangled in cords and tubes, from the leg braces and the IV machine. The IV machine can't seem to go five minutes without beeping, and when they don't come, it just gets louder. You fumble around it, looking for a silence button, only to fuck something up and get lightly scolded by the nurse. Days and nights become more meaningless the longer you stay, so you just sleep whenever you get tired, be it 2pm or 2am. If you do end up sleeping at night, you get awoken at 4-5am every morning to get stuck so they can test your blood. All this, and I haven't even mentioned the actual pain from surgery recovery. The only part that is good is getting unlimited ice cream at any hour."

Or at least they wouldn\u2019t use the Arabic word for it. \nI at least have never encountered falafel at any Iranian restaurant. \nEDIT: I'm so happy I kick-started a conversation about Iranian food, if you haven't tried it yet, GO!"
