I'm teaching class here at school and these damn kids won't do what I freaking say! I'm sick of it! I'm just fed up! I'm pissed! I keep on telling these kids to GET OFF THE INTERNET! Just do your work, for the love of God. I just came to these forums to vent off some of my anger. I run the best class in this freaking school, and these kids just don't know when to stop. SERIOUSLY. If they had a biker boyfriend like me, they would know what success really is. ARRGH!! I guess I'd better get out some detention slips.....

Ever try turning of the Internet, sitting down with those kids, and hitting them?
Part of a podcast that likes old school anime, but will find something to dislike about it. And we talk about other stuff.

Disconnect the server and keep it disconnected. If they've brought laptops, take it from them and keep it till the end of class.

This is the best fake thread ever.

Seems the kids are acting up cause the teacher loves to be on the internet too much.
Yup. It's a signature. Go away if you're expecting something interesting here.
I love you Ms Jarrell
I <3 this thread.
What do you get when you put three friends in a recording booth once a week, screen old anime, and tell them to make sense of it? You get the Anime of Yesteryear Podcast! Tune in each week as we kick back and discuss anime of old, both the well-known and the obscure, as well as our thoughts on the latest developments in the world of comics. (Updates Weekly!)

What has been presented, we may approach in two distinct ways. Let us, firstly, assume that Ms. Jarrell is indeed who she claims to be; a teacher at the end of her rope. Those unscrupulous youths have quite a nasty disposition toward entropy, do they not? Might we further delve into the nature of such a classroom atmosphere, we would learn more about the actual cause of her strife.
Clearly, Ms. Jarrell is unwittingly caught in a love triangle between herself, her students, and "THE INTERNET." Knowing firsthand the insurmountable volumes of forbidden joy lurking around every dark corner (and even some bright ones), I cannot blame the students for shirking their schoolwork. However, the classroom is clearly not the place for such delightful rompings.
Would a ban on personal computers be in order, or are the computers already there to provide a facet of learning, such as word processing or computer programming? If the latter, it may be a simple matter to pull the plug on all external communications...ie, THE INTERNET. This may be a task in which the IT department must be involved.
However, there may be another factor which has not been addressed. Ms. Jarrell's treatment of the students--even before their use of THE INTERNET in her classroom--could have something to do with this whole affair. Perhaps her voice was too lecture-y, or her hairbun too tight, or her readily apparent fuse too short. What else, we must wonder, has happened in her classroom to promote the dissolution of the preconceived power structure between teacher and student?
In this, the heart of the matter, we must ask ourselves, with all due respect to Ms. Jarrell, how well has she performed as a teacher before her pupils? Has she given them any rational reason to abandon her lesson plans for personal investigations into the latest YouTube videos?
Unfortunately, it is not for us to decide. We are far too removed from the situation to even pretend that we are capable of fathoming the elements in Ms. Jarrell's classroom. We can only take her at her word, and wish her luck in dealing with THE INTERNET's invasion of her students' attention spans.
Ah, and the matter of the second method in which we can approach this subject? I propose to you, ladies and gentlemen of Toon Zone, that Ms. Jarrell is not Ms. Jarrell at all, but an offshoot on-line personality of a delusional mind; a mind focused on THE INTERNET and other such things that occupy a young impressionable psyche. If the creator of "Ms. Jarrell" (hereafter referred to as "Jarrell Prime") were to be seen in real life, I would wager that he or she is much like one of the students in the unruly classroom scenario. Perhaps Jarrell Prime created the "Ms. Jarrell" persona in order to deal with his/her own feelings on browsing THE INTERNET at school when he/she knows full well that he/she should be paying attention to life's important lessons spilling from the mouth of his/her tutors. He/she also appears to wish to be married to a male biker, something we all dream from time to time. By creating this separate identity, Jarrell Prime is able to interact on an external level with his/her disappointment in him/herself. Likely, the name "Jarrell" was taken from the very teacher which Jarrell Prime has inconvenienced through his/her activity on THE INTERNET during class.
If this second case proves true, ladies and gentlemen and spambots, we must all tread carefully! If the "Ms. Jarrell" personality is dealt with in an improper manner, we risk destroying both it AND Jarrell Prime in a simultaneous cacophony of electrocuted brain cells. Do YOU want to be an accessory to the literal melting of a human brain? DO YOU?
So heed my words, Toon Zone, and take steps to ensure that THE INTERNET does not do the same...TO YOU!
I'm sorry have to say this, but this is the funniest thing I read all day. LOL ^_^.
Wow, Mr. Fugate. That analysis was excellent. What college are you currently going to? But yes, I am the one and only Ms. Jarrell around here. People do say I have done many youthful things after high school. I used to have my own MySpace and even a blog on blogspot. I was happy that my students visited these sites and gave me support.
Anyway, I'd like to reassure my identity. I AM MS. JARRELL. I am a graduate from The University of Utah and a teacher at Emerald Hill High School in Salt Lake City. Nothing more. I hope you children can accept that. Anyway, I must go to bed to get ready for the long day ahead. The Internet is indeed an intriguing place, but it's time to settle in and prepare for those freaking kids again. Some of you high schoolers that post here may want to think about getting to bed yourselves. There is a long day ahead.
Once again, Mr. Fugate, I greatly respect you for the amazing analysis you just gave. We need to chat sometime.
