To sum up Mr. Cohen’s behavior in a single sentence, it would be fair to say that he is without punctuality, without responsibilities, and without a general knowledge of grading protocol. While his extensive education and skills in photography is quite recognizable and impressive, his inability fulfill his role as a responsible teacher makes his other abilities unimportant, and insignificant.
For the first couple months of school, Arthur Cohen was on time for his zero period class every single day. Most of the time, he even arrived a few minutes before class started, in order to prepare for the class and allow students to come into the warm room. However, as Winter Break came to an end and the twenty zero period students started to return to Leigh, they found that their teacher who had proven to be very punctual and responsible, had changed his ways into becoming tardy, lazy and hypocritical. Day after day Arthur Cohen made his trip to Leigh High School at his own pace, forcing the students in his classroom to stand and wait outside in weather that had begun to hit mid-thirties. He approached each day, and as the students faces stared with frustration, it was visible in Mr. Cohen’s eyes that he was ashamed of his irresponsibility.
People have layers, layers which show how people are deep down, deeper than what the average student may see. Arthur Cohen’s first layer is what makes him late. It is his initial action in which he makes the decision not to arrive on campus by 7:00. His second layer is the layer which can be seen in his eyes, his embarrassment, his shame that he is frustrating and angering his pupils. While this layer may seem kind and caring, Mr. Cohen’s third layer underneath his feeling of shame consists of his actions he proceeds to demonstrate. These actions are simple: he does not stop. Although it is very obvious that he feels bad for his tardies, he cannot bring himself to actually help the situation. This is the third level, and this is the layer which will hurt him for the rest of his career, because although he may care about his students and reputation, he will fail to achieve respect among the majority of his classes.

There are two true issues that come with being consistently tardy in Arthur Cohen’s situation. The first is that when the first thing a student sees in a teacher is irresponsibility, he finds it difficult to take instructions from this person. The day has begun on the wrong foot and now anything that the teacher says must be taken with a grain of salt. This bring about the second issue with Arthur Cohen’s tardies. Without fail, at least once a week, Mr. Cohen will announce to the class the inexcusable sin of being perpetually tardy, and he assigns a detention to any students who come tardy. For most stories, there are two sides, and as a whole there most likely is in this one as well. However, the facts in this particular incident is very clear. Arthur Cohen has the ability to show up on time, which he proved during the beginning of the year, he is now continuously late, and he hypocritically penalizes his students for actions equal to his own. This hypocrisy and ignorance must be stopped.
My name is Colin Stevenson, and I represent Mr. Arthur Cohen’s zero period class at Leigh High School. I hope whoever this essay reaches will truly look into the inappropriate conduct of Cohen, for this is an issue that the class is united on. I do not vouch for myself alone, for only a fool creates such a scene in regards to himself and only himself. My grade is top notch, and Arthur Cohen has told me on numerous occasion of his fondness of me as a student and a person. Although at times it pains me to insult a man with such high opinions of me, I feel that if I do not, as a student, speak out in a mature and clear manner, nobody will. I hope you have found this informative and helpful. Thank you for your time.
