Out-Of-Character Information What is your Minecraft username?: Honeyyy__ How old are you?: I am 17 years old, turning 18 soon. Do you have any previous bans?: I was banned mid June but if I am able to I would rather keep it so it isn't posted for public to see, I am willing to talk about it in dms. What Country are you from?: I am from Canada. PST Do you have Discord (if so, what is your discord username?): Yes I do have discord, it is Honeyy#9707 Do you understand that most answers are found in the roleplay documents?: Yes I do understand this. Do you acknowledge that if you are inactive you will be demoted?: I do understand this and completely agree with being demoted if inactive. Do you understand that all classroom activity must be documented on the "Teacher Roster" thread?: Yes I understand fully. Describe your activity on the server & on the forums?: I am active on the server as often as I am able to, as of right now I am on the server almost everyday but once school starts again I won't be able to get on until later in the day. For the forums I am somewhat active just not as much as I am on the server. The thing I mainly check and do on forums is looking at rules to make sure I know all of them. Link(s) to any previous applications on the server?: https://schoolrp.net/threads/hawaiian-language-app-honeyyy__.29431/ [Accepted] https://schoolrp.net/threads/german-language-application-honeyyy__.27307/ [Accepted] https://schoolrp.net/threads/vietnamese-language-application-honeyyy__.25859/ [Accepted] https://schoolrp.net/threads/teaching-assistant-application-honeyyy__.29469/ [Denied] Trivia What is your motivation for becoming a teacher?: My motivation for being a teacher on school role-play is because I would love to see and watch students grow to become the best versions of themselves they could be. My goal is to one day see those students become adults that do well in the day to day life. I also believe school shouldn't be based off grades and be more focused on who they are as a person, since not everyone is the same and have different strengths and weaknesses. I would like to help encourage students to do the right thing when put into any situation. Another thing I would like to do is give students more time to think about answers for questions that may be asked in class. As a Teacher it is your responsibility to make sure every student you come across to grow and be successful in life, it could mean for a future job. Being a Teacher means being the best role model you could be for the students around you that you see day to day. I would also like to say, I feel like it would be a great thing for me to try out and add this to my role-play experience. I enjoy learning new ways to role-play and how to handle a situation I haven't faced yet. The teacher role I would like to apply for (if open) is being a English Teacher. I feel like this would be a great opportunity for me as I was thinking about going to school for this in real life. Do you have any experience in Roleplaying?: I have a decent amount of experience in role-playing. I have gotten online when I had spare time / free time. I have role-played in a couple of different types of role-plays. I do prefer as close to "normal" type of role-plays though. Have you read the Faculty Handbook?: Yes I have read through the Faculty Handbook, I will be going over it a couple more times to remember I need to. I made sure to read over every word of it before making this application. I fully understand what is allowed and what is not allowed. What are the classroom logs and why is it important?: The classroom logs are documents for the teachers to write down and log classes they have held throughout that day. Classroom logs are helpful for making sure you are paid the right amount for the work you have done. The logs are very helpful to keep track of other peoples lessons and classes they have held, this is to make sure we do not teach the same lesson or too similar of lessons to the same group of students. You want to start a school field trip; how do you do that?: To start a field trip you should first plan ahead of time, anytime within the week before hand would be good but best to plan a couple of weeks before. You should also be prepared for the events that are going to happen within the field trip, along with anything that might happen during it. As a teacher, what are the strict rules when being in a class?: 1. The use of phones are prohibited during class time, you may only use outside of class. If a student uses a phone during class you should give them around 3 warnings before taking the phone away. If a student gets over two verbal warnings they should be reported to the Vice Principal or Principal. 2. You should always be respectful of anyone within the walls of the classroom, this does not just mean Teacher or Teaching Assistant. Showing respect to adults within the school shows you are mature and they will respect you back. 3. You should not eat or drink anything during a class as it can be distracting to other students within the class. 4. Profanity of any type is strictly prohibited during a class and just on school grounds. This goes for any type of violence or bullying. 5. Try to keep to yourself if it is not your turn to talk, always remember to put your hand up before speaking as it is not fair to another student if you just shout it out. 6. If you need to use the restroom please make sure to raise your hand and wait patiently to be called on, if the teacher allows you to go please try to be quick to the restroom and back. 7. Always remember to come to class prepared as you never know what is going to happen during that class, you may not always need a pencil or notebook but it is always best to come ready for any activity that may happen. 8. Remember to do the best you can and if you are having a hard time keeping up or not understanding to raise your hand. You will get help as soon as possible. 9. Before leaving when class has ended make sure you clean up your work area if it is dirty. Summarize your previous RP experience's (both in general and on SchoolRP): My experience with role-playing has been good for the most part. I have always had fun when role-playing and made tons of friends as well as learning new ways to make it thrilling and fun. With the bad experiences I believe are good to have as it teaches you how to move past something you may not like. My overall experience on SchoolRP has been great, barely ever any bad experiences as I do not count someone else's behavior as a bad experience. Describe the ranking system of teachers: - HD: This stands for 'Head of Department'. As the head you are considered highly skilled with teaching. They also oversee the lower ranks of teachers to make sure they are doing their job correctly. - QTLS: This stands for 'Qualified Teacher of Learning Skills'. These are certified skillful teachers of the subject they teach. They are able to teach a full class with little as no help at all. - NQT: This stands for 'Newly Qualified Teacher'. These people are new teachers, and are new to teaching. They may seek advice from time to time from HD ( Head of Department ) as they will be watched closely by them to make sure they are doing their job correctly. 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.: Teachers out-of-game and in-game are very similar but not completely the same. They both plan lessons ahead of time, prepare for the class they have that day or throughout the week. They both wait for students to walk in and be seated before they start a lesson. When Teachers are on break they tend to go over and mark work they might have been given after a class by students. Teachers in-game and out-of-game like to make sure everyone is on the same page and understand what is happening in class. Both in-game and out-of-game Teachers teach the following: English, Math, Science, History, Art, Technology, and Drama. In-game teachers get paid depending on how many classes they host during the month, they normally make 300k for every 15 classes with an add on of 50k for any extra classes they teach after the first 15. Why are teachers important to a SchoolRP server?: Teachers on SchoolRP are important since it is based around a school role-play. Without teachers we wouldn't be able to role play a school setting. Teachers are also a great for role models for the students, keep them going and maybe give them the idea to become a teacher one day. What lesson planning system does the school work on?: Teachers follow the "Must have, Could have, Should have" system.

She spoke with a slight French accent. She has long ginger hair that fades lighter at the bottom. She would have a darker green colour for eyes with freckles covering her face. Sylvia is a very kind and caring individual. She will defend anyone who is being made fun of and stand up for those who need it. She is very respectful and quiet. She sees students as the future and treats them with respect, she also cares for them deeply and understands that it may be hard for any one of those students and tries to not be hard on them if they aren't doing well in a class. Sylvia also shows respect towards other Teachers or just school employees. Sylvia doesn't exactly have a big plan for the future all she knows is that she wants to be a good impact on the students at Karakura High. Scenarios You find a gang of delinquents in the hallway cursing and swearing, what do you do?: The first thing I would do if I saw this happening is get a full understanding of why it is happening, how it started and how to stop it. If there were other students around watching I would make sure to get them to leave as it may not be safe for them to stay and watch. I would next ask them to stop as a first warning, I would try to keep everyone calm. If those students continue to swear in the hallways and misbehave I would give them detention as soon as possible. After this I would take note of everything they have said around me or to me and take it up with the Vice Principle or the Principle. No one in your class is listening to a word you say, what do you do?: I would calmly ask everyone to quiet down and be ready for class to continue, if this does not work I would give them a verbal warning that if they do not stop they would receive detention after class or school depending on what period the class was. When in the teacher's lounge, how does your character act?: Sylvia would be respectful of any other teacher who may be in there. She would keep quiet as the other teachers may be busy doing work and need the quiet, and if she were to talk with another teacher maybe take it into the hall to be respectful. Sylvia would also sit down and have a snack maybe as she marks students papers or plan for her next class.

Sylvia's mother and father always gave them attention when they needed it or when they were free. As Sylvia got older she took a big interest in English classes, she started to realize she wanted to teach English when she was older, so she started thinking about what to do after High School even though it was years away.

When it was time for Sylvia to go to University, she majored in English and History and passed. She was always kind and caring to everyone she was around or met along the way.
