I was curious if anybody has any stories about what not to do in a classroom? Maybe something that a teacher did during the course of your education (even though I guess its not proper to name names) that you just did not approve of or didn't like and want to warn others against. Any thoughts?

I can't really remember any really bad teachers that I had in public schools. The teacher that always comes to mind was one whose ultimate solution to discipline was to take away recess. I remember that recesses were VERY few and far between in that class, and I really resented her for it. Recess is an important part of the day for elemtary kids (I was in elementary school, fogot to mention that heh) and it was wrong of her to take it away soooo frequent. I can't make the point to you of how often this occurred--you wouldn't believe it. It seems like should could have developed alternate ways to handle discipline. None of my other teachers ever relied so heavily on that practice...
