Kako ukrotiti svoje učitelje

How to tame your teachers

Written by Katarina Bulatović, translated by JL Flanner & G Translate

V življenju boste srečali mnogo učiteljev.

You will meet many teachers in your life.

Nekatere boste oboževali: ti vas bodo navdihnili, povzdignili, veliko naučili, mogoče bodo celo vplivali na to, kaj boste postali, usedli se bodo v vaša srca.

Some you will adore: they will inspire you, elevate you, teach you a lot, they may even influence what you become, they will settle into your hearts.

Druge boste želeli poslati iz razreda: ti vas bodo naučili, kako se postaviti zase, kako krotiti jezo, kako se dokazati ali kako sprejeti nekoga, ki vam gre na živce.

You will want to send others out of the class: they will teach you how to stand up for yourself, how to temper your anger, how to prove yourself, or how to accept someone who gets on your nerves.

Naleteli boste tudi na dolgočasne, organizirane, zaskrbljene, materinske, hiperaktivne, z zdravjem obsedene učitelje in še mnoge, mnoge druge.

You will also come across boring, organised, anxious, maternal, hyperactive, health-obsessed teachers, and many, many more.

Mogoče vas bodo učili tudi taki učitelji, ki se jih kasneje sploh ne boste več spomnili.

You may also be taught by some teachers that you won’t remember at all.

Ljudje smo različni. In tako kot boste v življenju srečevali takšne in drugačne ljudi, takšne in drugačne prijatelje, sorodnike, šefe, tako boste srečali tudi takšne in drugačne učitelje. Ampak od vsakega se boste kaj naučili.

We humans are different. And just as you will meet many different people in your life, like different friends, relatives, bosses, so will you meet various teachers. But you will learn something from each.

Napotki, kako ukrotiti svojega učitelja

How to tame your teacher

Ko prideš v šolo, ga pozdravi. Majhna stvar, ki pomeni ogromno.

When you get to school, greet him. A small thing that means a lot.

Sem in tja ga malo pohvali. Takrat, ko si zasluži.

Praise him a little here and there. Just when he deserves it.

Delaj domačo nalogo. Preprosta matematika pravi: brez domače naloge = siten učitelj in dolgo predavanje o tem, kako vam domača naloga koristi, da je ne delate zanj in …; z domačo nalogo = srečen učitelj, brez predavanja.

Do your homework. Simple math says: no homework = annoying teacher and a long lecture about how your homework benefits you from working for it and…; homework = happy teacher, no lecture.

Bodi vljuden, učitelja spoštuj. Učitelj je vaš učitelj. Je nekdo, ki vas hoče nekaj naučiti, nekdo, ki vam hoče dobro, nekdo, ki vas ima rad. Če učitelj spoštuje vas, tudi vi spoštujte učitelja.

Be polite, respect the teacher. The teacher is your teacher. He is someone who wants to teach you something, someone who wants you well, someone who loves you. If the teacher respects you, you also respect the teacher.

Pogovarjaj se z učiteljem. Učitelji se radi pogovarjamo s svojimi učenci. Če česa ne razumeš, mu povej.

Talk to your teacher. Teachers like to talk to our students. If you don't understand something, tell him.

Pomagaj sošolcem. Pri učenju, pri pospravljanju, pri pridobivanju prijateljev, v žalostnih dneh … Tako boste postali pravi junaki. Meni se zdi to veliko bolj pomembno kot najboljši uspeh.

Help your classmates. When you study, when you get dressed, when you make friends, on sad days ... You will become a real hero. I find this much more important than the greatest success.

Tako, dragi moji, boste odlično začeli svoje leto. Vse je lažje, če se razumete z učiteljem. Če mu zaupate, če ga spoštujete. In če boste vi spoštovali učitelja, bo tudi on spoštoval vas.

So, my dear, you will have a great start to your year. It's easier to get along with your teacher. If you trust him, if you respect him. And if you respect the teacher, he will respect you too.

In veste kaj?

And you know what?

Učitelj bo ukročen.

The teacher will be tamed.
