What Country are you from?: I'm from the Netherlands, so that means my timezone is Central Europe Time (CET).

Describe your activity on the server & on the forums?: I log on to the server every day, a large amount of time. Because of the situation we're all in right now, I play even more. I am pretty new to the forums though, but I'm always watching the SRP community. Link(s) to any previous applications on the server?: I sadly don't have any previous applications on the server. Trivia What is your motivation for becoming a teacher?: My motivation for becoming a teacher is that i want to improve the experience of the people, playing on the server. There sometimes isn't one lesson for a whole day, and I want to change that. I want to give them the best experience what they deserve. I've always looked up to the school staff, they are polite, respectful, and I want to follow the direction they are going towards. Do you have any experience in Roleplaying?: Yes, I have a pretty good experience in Roleplaying if I say so myself. I've learned everything on the server with StudentRP. Follow the rules for a greater experience, communicate with people, use your best creativity, go to events and learn to know more people, and that's how the RP all comes together, yet we all are different from eachother. Have you read the Faculty Handbook?: Yes, I have read the Faculty Handbook before, but when I try to open it right now, I get an error. https://schoolrp.net/index.php?threads/faculty-handbook.1981/ What are the classroom logs and why is it important?: You can compare these to server logs, they show every activity that happens in the class. If the student does something wrong, it would come in the teacher logs, and so the student would be punished for it. It also shows hor the teacher is doing their job. This way, teachers that don't do anything will get demoted, This is how you can overcome the critic parts of your teaching career. You want to start a school field trip; how do you do that?: If I want to start a school field trip, I must ask for approval by the principal or one of the vice-principals. I must tell him/her what the educational part of it is, where we are going to, and what we are going to do. If the approval gets declined, the school field trip would be cancelled. When it gets approved, the school field trip would be continued as proceeded. As a teacher, what are the strict rules when being in a class?: * All students must show respect to the teacher. * Violence in class will result for both of the parties to detention or escorted out to the principal's office. * No eating or drinking during class. * All phones in class must be disabled and should stay in your bag, except when you have permission by the teacher. * All students must remain in their seat. Summarize your previous RP experience's (both in general and on SchoolRP): I've been roleplaying since somewhere in 2012 in general. Since 2018, I'm playing on SchoolRP, but lost the IP after a month. In January 2020, I found the IP again and joined back. I've roleplayed as a High School student for some time, and I roleplayed in a gang, the reason why my old character died. It's also really important to read the rules. If you don't follow them, the experience for other players would be ruined and people would start hating on you. It's pretty much all about the character with their personality. Although playing as a student is really fun, I want to try out something new, something I have never tried before. Describe the ranking system of teachers: - HD: Head Of Department. These teachers are the leader of a specific subject of the school. They are responsible for making lesson plans and curriculum. They are also responsible for the acts of the Qualified Teachers In Learning and Skills and the Newly Qualified Teachers. - QTLS: Qualified Teacher In Learning and Skills. These teachers already have an experience and skill with teaching. They are allowed to teach without Head Of Department's permissions, but still have to follow their rules. They also have to check if the Newly Qualified Teachers is doing their job in a good way. - NQT: Newly Qualified Teacher. These are teachers who have been recently hired. These teachers are new to teaching, which means they can't proceed things without the permissions of the Head Of Department. After the NQT, it will be determined if they are good enough to be promoted to Qualified Teacher In Learning and Skills. Teacher Knowledge Present to us your knowledge about Teachers in-game and out-of-game, what purpose do teachers serve. What salary do they get? Include a paragraph about the way teachers teach, what they do in their spare time in general. The most common thing a teacher has to do, is teaching, and every teacher has a different way of doing that. They have to teach students the subject task, answer their questions, and help the students to go further to the next grade or college. The salary of a teacher in Japan is between 200,000¥ and 250,000¥ per month. This determines in which subject they teach in. Outside of school, teachers have their own private life, but they also have to grade every student. That doesn't sound that much, but some teachers have around 1000 students to grade. Which is a lot! In-game whatsoever, get paid for every class they teach. This depends on how good they are doing their jobs and how many classes throughout the day. Why are teachers important to a SchoolRP server?: A teacher is the key to a school's success and a student's future. If there is no teacher on a school, you can't learn anything, which means a school can't be a school without a teacher. What lesson planning system does the school work on?: Must have, Should have, Could have. Character Knowledge Tell us everything you know about the character you will be playing in a few paragraphs.

Scenarios You find a gang of delinquents in the hallway cursing and swearing, what do you do?: I would approach them, saying they should not swear, give them a warning and say that if they won't stop, I would send them to the Vice Principal. If they won't stop, I would walk up to them again and send them to the Vice Principal, walking behind them, so they can't run away. No one in your class is listening to a word you say, what do you do?: If no one is listening, I would ask politely if everyone can listen to me, if they won't respond, I would do a loud whistle. When they still won't listen from that, I would say that if they keep talking, I will let them overtake, during the break time.

Backstory Mercury grew up with his parents as an only child in a small town in the Netherlands. His father was working for the police and his mother was a teacher. At a young age of 12, his mother got dangerously ill, the last thing she wanted was to go to Japan. While on the plane, his mother passed away while everyone was asleep. When the plane landed, everyone got out except Mercury's mother. When they asked the flight crew where she went, they only said that they found a body in one of the seats, they didn't tell anyone about it, because it would freak everyone out. Mercury and his father got to the place and Mercury locked himself in his room crying. Not eating for a month. After three months, he finally got a bit more over it and got outside for the first time in ages, they didn't want to go back to the Netherlands because of the trauma what happened in the plane. So they stayed in Japan. Mercury needed a school though, they found a school named 'Karakura High', and that's how Mercury started a new life. He had friends, met a cute girl and just loved the school. When Mercury was 20, his father wanted to go back to the Netherlands, but Mercury didn't want to. So his father was going back, alone. Mercury now lived in an apartment from his friend. Some time later he got a girlfriend named Ariana, and later they got a daughter named Chidori. His life was perfect! But, he had one problem though, he had no job. That's how he tried out a bunch of different jobs, but none of them fitted him.
