I gazed at the alarm clock that sat beside my bed; its loud beeping had woke me suddenly. Grabbing it, I pushed the bright red button, which turned it off, though my hand nearly reached the snooze button, as it was so tempting. I slowly got out of bed and, threw the covers back over the bed. I turned the shower on the low setting as the heating had been on for an hour. I jumped and to my surprise the water was cold, I turned the shower to medium as fast as James Bond about to cut the wire of a bomb that only had one second left till it was to explode. After the experience with the shower, the rain when I got out of the car felt warm as I walked to the entrance of school.
Walking threw the gates I remembered I had the class today. Every teacher knew what class you were talking about when you said, the class, 10.4, the whole class never wanted to learn anything and always loved to cause trouble. Just the other day one of the boys from 10.4 came into the computer room dancing and jumping around like a fairy, but that wasnt the bad bit, he had an open bottle of orange juice in his hand that caused the problem, the orange juice went everywhere, the school had to close the computer room for the rest of the day and call an electrician as some the keyboards had started sparking. The autumn leaves fell to the ground which was already covered, the trees looked so lifeless in comparison to spring. There was a soft wind which made the remaining leaves flutter, even though I had 10.4 today for a double Computer class, I though today was going to be good, but the events that followed where the complete the opposite. After lunch it happened, the alarm bell rang and I shouted to the children to get under the table.
A Strong Background in Computer Technology Computer technology has advanced dramatically over the past ten years. Technology has advanced from computers the size of a room that can only perform one particular task, to personal computers (PC?s) that will fit on a desk and perform multiple tasks. Understanding computers and their programs and being able to apply that knowledge is very important in ...
It was a year 8 class. It was the thing every teacher dreaded in America, an earthquake. I had only been teaching for two years, so I had never experienced how children react to the situation. It was only a small tremor, but the children were feeling tense. The headmaster came into the room to see if all was well, he told me to return to normal, as there was no damage to the school building. I gazed out of the second floor window and wondered if it was only a small tremor, the sky looked lovely and blue as if it was hiding something.
Some of the children reacted differently to others, some laughed, and others sat in silence and others speculated. The maths question and the board seemed distant in the minds of the children, and for that matter me too. I though to myself I must forget what just happed and continue with my job. The children clearly didnt want to work, so I though I would gave them something easier to do. The answer lay in the bottom draw of my desk, colouring by numbers. The children all agree and I gave out the colouring pencils.
Even though the sun was shinning I had the lights on in the right side of the room, as there was a shadow casting over the tables from the sun. Then suddenly. The lights began to flicker. The pictures fell, and the bell rang. I again shouted to the children who were already under the tables to get under one. To my horror Sam had just been pushed out from under the table by another boy, I quickly jumped out from under my desk, grabbed him and threw him under my desk. Just then the roof fell in and I wasnt under the table.
My leg, it was bleeding and I couldnt feel any pain. The children were now in hysterics, and I couldnt comfort them. The earthquake had only lasted about 7 seconds; well that was what the ambulance man had told me. To me is had seemed to lasts hours. The pain which I could now feel shot threw me like an electric current. The teacher from next door who didnt have a class came running in, the reaction from his face told me that my leg was badly hurt.
The Essay on Will Positive behavior Modification Decrease the Amount of Negative-Seeking Attention of a Child
Teaching is a challenging profession especially if the teacher is handling children. Children, when they want to have attention, will do anything just to have it.

Say for example, in a school setting, the child may seek for the ...
All the children seemed to be all right expect one, John; he was lying on the floor crying out that his arm was painful. The teacher from next door carefully lifted John and instructed the other children to carefully follow him down stairs to the playground for a role call. The children looked shocked and some whimpered quietly to themselves as they walked past me. Waiting for the paramedic I wondered how I had come to be out in the open and not under my desk. Then I remembered, Sam, I had pushed him under my desk. I didnt mind now that I had been hurt, I had saved a boy for certain fatality, as the roof would have fell onto his head. TO BE CONTINUED.
