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 is being a History Teacher. I feel like this would be a great opportunity for me as I have always found history interesting. 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" and "realistic" type of role-plays though. Have you read the Faculty Handbook?: Yes, I have read through the Faulty Handbook and made sure I understood it to my best ability, however I will be making sure to have it saved to go through it at any moment in time just in case it is needed. Just to make sure I am doing what is allowed before it is done. What are the classroom logs and why is it important?: The Classroom logs are important because it keeps track of each and every class you teach during that month. It is to make sure you are paid the right amount of money from that month, along with any other teacher that puts logs in. The classroom logs is a place for teachers to write down and log what classes they have held throughout that day. They also help make sure you do not teach the exact same or similar class as someone else. You want to start a school field trip; how do you do that?: First I would plan ahead of time, about a week or so, maybe two weeks. If I were to plan a field trip I would make sure to be fully if not more prepared to handle whatever situations that may occur when not on school grounds. 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 are very important to SchoolRP as it is a school, teachers are needed to make a school system work. Without teachers we wouldn't be much of a School role-play server. 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.

Scenarios You find a gang of delinquents in the hallway cursing and swearing, what do you do?: If I saw a group of kids misbehaving the first thing I would do is get a full story on what was happening and what was going on, after that I would run through how to handle the situation in my head before taking action. By thinking of ways to calm the situation down it helps with out comes and the best possible way to stop it. Next I would make sure they weren't harming any other students before I would take action on the swearing and foul language, I would remind them that they are not to swear or use any type of profanity when on the school grounds. As for that it would be their first verbal warning, I would remain calm as it might help the students calm down. My next move would be to take note of everything said during the situation and make a report for the Vice Principle or Principle if the behavior does not stop. No one in your class is listening to a word you say, what do you do?: I would calmly ask for everyone to stay seated and to quiet down and be ready for class to continue, if this does not happen I would give them a verbal warning that if they do not stop they would receive detention after class or after school depending on what period I was teaching. When in the teacher's lounge, how does your character act?: Within the teacher's lounge Adrian would be quiet and respectful of any other possible teachers that may be in the room.
