Sometimes she signs as one of her alters, but this is rare because typically she is herself when she writes. Sunshine is a teacher, and is afraid of the school district in which she works for finding out about her disorder because, due to their current policies, she could and most likely would be fired. Even with the fairness of the situation she currently resides in questionable, she understands it is what she must do to help provide for her two children and husband ("Sunshine and shadows," 2011). Therefore, the question one may ask is how exactly does she keep the personalities at bay while teaching?

Moral Development defined as how oneself has to treat another. Based off the article provided, Stephanie is having some issues in class, such as cheating. Her teacher has become concerned that these behaviors are caused by uses in the home, her teacher is trying to talk to her mother to figure something out so she ends these behaviors. Although her mother believes that Stephanie herself is the issue and that she is a horrible child and doesn’t listen, she is doing the best she can. There are many different theories in which could be the reasoning for the issues Stephanie is having in her class.

When I was in forth grade I didn't notice what was going on and even if I had I probably wouldn't have thought anything of it. I would have been to young to fully understand what was going on if I had realized that there were sexist lessons in the education system. In sixth grade I did notice that the teacher favored the girls more than he did the boys and I didn't think anything of it, I just thought that he liked them more so he would call on them more.
There is a impressive sense in the movie. A woman from disciplinary committee talks to Marin: "Before we punish the students, we will always be hesitant. We know when they come back to home, then, lock the door, they could be slapped and beaten, but we have to punish them if they get over the bottom line of punishment. As the consequence, that has nothing to do with you." Basically, the education punishment is aimed to help the teachers manage the students, however, in this sense, this female teacher thinks that the punishment is just a rule.
I ask the parent to come into my office so we could discuss the matter privately. If I didn’t, I knew the next step would have been a call to the School Resource Officer (SRO) to remove her from the campus. She had previously sued the school for another issue and I did not want things to get out of control. We spoke in my office and her main concern was for her son, who she believed would be lost if he was not allowed the same services he received in middle school, with extended time for assignment and privacy during test. I tried to no avail, to relay to her that our school is a caring envi... ... middle of paper ... ... that gray areas are necessary, but I maintain that I will allow my conscience to be my guide and not rule on emotion or pressure but on character and integrity.
Precious dreadfully wants to get out of her situation, but the only thing she knows how to do is imagine about being somewhere else.

She wishes she isn’t fat and dumb and she wishes that she could just get away from life as she lives it every day. This story made me think about bullying and how it can really affect the life of many people.
Olsen used Emily as an example of how the government cares more about business than people, thus why I believe she sustained an attack on a heartless, bureaucratic government in “I Stand Here Ironing.” She writes about how the government left the narrator to fend for herself and her child when her husband left her to escape the poverty they were in. She also uses Emily to show what happens to a child and a mother when the government does not help them stay together. Olsen then shows that punctuality is important to help people by showing that the government’s want to help Emily, now a teenager, is futile. These statements are all results of a bureaucratic government with no care for its people.
As a teacher, it could be “One student is not as same as another in the world.” Especially for Mrs. G, a first year teacher, was assigned to teach a special class which was full of “hopeless” students who must get into the classroom on a school guard’s command. At first, Mrs. G taught them in a traditional way. However, it did not work at all. Because they had to fight a war for their racial groups and considered learning from the textbook was meaningless and unnecessary. Then, Mrs. G decided to walk into their worlds and open their minds.
Many female students fall victim to the gender biased rules. In an article written by Lee Hale for NPR, one teen named Sophie Manoukian in Pasadena, CA, told a local news station that "[i]t 's like girls should be ashamed of their bodies. And even though they presented it like it was about equal opportunity for education, it was about how girls can be distracting and pulled out of class to change." Hale explores the struggles of being an educator and fighting the war against dress code violations. Some of the comments from the educators she spoke with noted confronting students about the dress code were not something that they enjoyed, and that they have encountered negative pushback from female students.
The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie by Muriel Spark Miss Brodie fails to be a good teacher because she teaches on her own accord, gives her students wrong impressions, and displays unprofessional behavior towards her staff and pupils. As a schoolteacher in Edinburgh during the 1930’s there were many rules and regulations that teachers had to adhere to in order to successfully feed the minds of their young pupils. Schoolteachers had more of a responsibility during this period than today because school was the only source of information and education that people could receive. Due to this fact, the government set strict policies and curriculums (and still do) that teachers must follow so that students could grow up to become well round individuals. Miss Brodie seemed to side step, insult or simply ignore some of the curriculum that was given, and teach her students on her own conditions.
