Don’t Waste Your Time

Student- any person who studies, investigates, or examines coursework thoughtfully. (

The Teacher’s Duties:

The teacher is responsible for exposing you to new information.

She shares information.

She asks questions.

She answers questions.

She may spark a conversation with you to talk about the information.

She will test you over the information one day soon.

At this point, her job is complete.

The Student’s Duties:

The student’s job is to listen, take notes, ask questions, and learn.

Second, the student should take his butt home and study.

He should study everything the teacher talked about.

He should study everything he wrote down in class.

He should study everything that was discussed.

He should make sure he is ready for the upcoming test.

Bottom Line:

If the student does not study – the teacher wasted her time.

If the student does not study – the student wasted his time.

If the student does not study – it all was a waste of time.

If the student does not study, he really isn’t a student at all (See definition above) but, a child looking to be spoon fed by his babysitter. Yet, he left daycare a long time ago.

It’s time to grow up.

It’s time to be a student.

Please don’t waste your time. Study!
