  • No, a teacher is a teacher, male, female, gay, lesbian..

    As long as they are there to teach my children and they are doing their job well. I don't care what they are, how the dress nor the color of their skin...

  • Male teachers in general?- No. Male teachers who abuse their power as a teacher- yes.

  • Nope.The only makle teacher my oldest son has this year is his music teacher and I actually like his sense of humor, which keeps his "no excuses" attitude from coming off as overly harsh. he sent home some flyers on classroom rules that I liked so much I posted on the fridge as the HOUSE RULES.

  • No, I think we need more of them!!! My son is always complaining that he only has women teachers. I think boys could use a role model at school.

  • Nope not at all. As long as they have the credentials and do the job right, it doesn't matter.

    But sadly, I hear that there are fewer men going into the profession. Not sure if that's true or not.

  • No, in fact one of my favorite teacher's a child was my only male grade school teacher. The only ones I have a problem with are those who "teach" high school or middle school courses because they coach at that school. I have met very few coaches over the years who make good teachers, and the ones I have are those who chose to teach and ended up coaching instead of the reverse.

  • Nope. I had some great male teachers and some lousy female teachers... Gender doesn't make a teacher, drive and passion do...
