TLE Teachers Admit that they are Best Mistaken as Vendors by the Students when they Don’t Wear Uniforms inside the Canteen

Are you a TLE teachers by any chance? Do you know that TLE teachers are best mistaken as vendors inside their canteens when they don’t wear uniforms? I am pretty sure many teachers will smile upon stumbling this article.

I saw a post from a friend of mine when she experienced this not only once but many times. In her post, she said that the students called her “Te” as he buys something. The teacher introduced herself so that the student will know. These instances are common when teachers don’t wear their uniforms inside the canteen.

Most of the time TLE. teachers change into something comfortable to wear inside their canteens. Or sometimes, they wear aprons or lab gowns when they are operating the canteen. This is due to the fact that their work as canteen in-charge requires more actions and sweat all the time. This is where these students tend to think that their teachers are vendors.

Funny it is to note but this is reality especially with the kind of students we have at present. Students nowadays don’t care anymore if you are a teacher or not. Even if you are wearing uniform still some students swill tends to bump you along the pathway. The characteristics of our students at present are not that acceptable.

For TLE teachers who are always assigned in the cafeteria or canteen or bazaar, these instances are common. Students call them “ate” or “te” or even “manang” and yet these teachers keep their calm. Much to our appreciation how these teachers handled situations like this.

I can attest to this since I am also a TLE teacher and I once experience this situation. Although we can’t force students to know of our existence, we must let them know that we are teachers.Avril | Helpline PH
