Every student has a favorite class, even if they don’t want to admit it to their teachers. Even teachers have favorite classes that they teach; they just don’t like to admit it to students. Students could like the class because they like that teacher, or because they just like to learn about that subject. The teachers could also have a favorite class to teach, based on the people in that class or simply because they just like to teach that subject or material.
School can be hard, but there might be one class that you look forward to going to each and every day. Jessica Noonan said, “my favorite class would have to be horticulture, because any class with Brunton is fun!” I agree with Jessica because, not only are we learning every day, we have fun doing it. Jessica also added, “I do like Brunton, but I also really enjoy the people in her class because some of them are cool and funny.” There is a lot more to the class than just liking the subject; when you have funny people in your class, it just makes the class go by faster and feels less like work.
Each teacher has their own opinion on why they have a favorite class to teach, and might even have a story behind why it’s their favorite. Mr. Eastlick said, “my favorite class to teach would have to be Anatomy and Physiology because I am a big fan of health and wellness.” Most teachers, like Mr. Eastlick, will have a favorite subject based on what they are interested in and what they most like to learn or talk about. Mr. Eastlick added, “Anatomy and Physiology was always my favorite subject, but I have never gotten to teach it until I came to Potosi.”
Often, teachers pursue a degree in a subject they enjoy or feel they are really good at. Mr. Fry said, “I was always a naturally skilled reader and writer, so English was a natural choice for me to study and then teach.”
For students their favorite subject can be very important for later in the future and can help them find out what they should be when they get older. A subject that they like or their favorite subject can help them by showing them what interests them and what they are good at. If students don’t like a subject then they know some things that don’t interest them and it shows them they shouldn’t be something that is related to this subject.
There are many reasons that students may not like certain subjects in school.You may not like the particular subject, or you may just not have that class with very many of your friends. Jessica explained that she didn’t like two of her classes because of how the subjects were difficult for her. “I definitely do not like government because there is a lot of vocab and a lot of different elements to remember, but I also don’t like math mostly because I don’t understand what is going on.” Having to do a lot of work for one class, or not understanding a subject, could make it more difficult to like that certain subject.
Teachers don’t usually have a least favorite class. Mr.Eastlick said, “I don’t really have a subject that I don’t like to teach because I like every subject there is [in science].” Most teachers enjoy the subject that they teach, because they focus on subjects that interested them when they were younger.
Students will always have a favorite class, and most likely have a class that they don’t like. Teachers seem to have a favorite subject to teach, but they are less likely to have any classes that they don’t like to teach.
