I love you for the holy words reference, seriously :'D
I find it interesting that a male teacher has such a bad reputation
As far as I know male teachers are the teachers LEAST interested in students. The female teachers are often those starting the flirting, male teachers have to be heavily flirted on to go the same way.
So you could say, the female teacher is often rather a femme fatal then "the nice gentle lady" while the male teacher can be even seen as some kind of victim of the teenagers ego.
Even though the male teacher surely can create huge damage by simply his power and body, but still, they seem to be much more aware of the situation and avoid it active.
Maybe that is why I find female teachers waaaaaaaaay more scary then male teachers (and I say this as a future female teacher, isn't that sad? :'D).
I mean, when I look at my fellow students...
There are some woman running around all dressed sexy and with an flirting attitude, telling about how being a teacher is the easiest job ever and how convient it will be. I can already imagine that these woman will try to control their class surely not by home work, detention and strict rules, but...
Anyway, the male students I was allowed to meet are very kind and caring men all highly worried about how to treat the kids.
BUT they all want to go for the older schools, because they seem to be almost afraid of the teens between 12 and 16.
Maybe they kind of sense it could be a dangerous age?
