    classroom teacher

    hey guys,

    1. just wonder if ''classroom teacher'' can be replaceable for ''homeroom teacher'' ? do you have the term of classroom teacher similar in meaning to homeroom teacher?

    2. ''at class'' is possible instead of in class?


    thank you

    I have not heard of 'homeroom teacher". Do you mean home 'teacher/tutor'?
    You say 'class teacher', not 'classroom teacher'.


    2. ''at class'' is possible instead of in class?

    'At the class' or 'in the class', depending on the context.


    thank you
    not a teacher

    ********** NOT A TEACHER **********

    Hello, Paris.

    (1) I think that there is a difference between classroom and

    homeroom teacher here in the United States.

    (2) In my state, many middle and high school students

    attend a homeroom each day in the morning. They do not study

    a subject. The object of homeroom may be to take official

    attendance and to learn about school news. In other words,

    homeroom prepares the students for the day.

    (3) A classroom teacher would be the teacher who teaches a

    specific subject, such as math, history, language, etc.

    (4) In some high schools, for example, a student may have one

    homeroom teacher and six classroom teachers.

    Thank you

    P. S. Some high schools are very big -- thousands of students.

    I think that one reason homeroom was started was to give a

    student a sense of home. S/he may have the same homeroom

    teacher (and fellow students) for the entire time that s/he attends

    that school. The idea is to give a student a sense of community

    so that s/he does not feel so isolated. On the other hand, some

    schools (and students) feel that homeroom is a waste of time and

    do not provide one.
