I agree that we must have standards that set us apart from the students.
I, too, have witnessed teachers act like the kids, conversing in their
language or better said slang, dress like them, and in general act like
them. These teachers seem to have the most discipline problems. The
teacher is the teacher and not the student. They are different and need
to face it! After all you wouldn't go out with them on a Friday night
would you? Set the standard and the rules early and problems will be
