How can you handle a strict teacher?
Second, follow the teacher's rules, pay attention in class, do your homework on time, and study for those hard tests strict teachers often give. Now I know that sounds like a real drag, but doing those things goes a long, long way in handling teachers who are strict. It also goes a long way to help you have discipline, responsibility, and all those great qualities that you will need to really succeed in life.
Now, I know this is probably not the answer you were looking for, but I've been on both sides of the teacher's desk. I know what I'm talking about because when I'm on the teacher's side of the desk, I'm a strict teacher.
One more thing! What you've been told about appreciating strict teachers when you get older. Believe it! It's true!
The teachers sometimes get strict because your not following the rules or your not listening and less listening means your not learning that means they get mad because your not learning.
