10 Types Of Students You See In The Classroom

Don’t get me wrong, there are times when I have to pay attention in class or I’m actually genuinely interested in the subject at hand; however, when my mind does wander off, I can’t make it blatantly obvious by staring out the window. My solution - I just look at whatever is around me, including my classmates/peers/other students. By no means is it limited to this number and there are exceptions, but here are ten of the many types of students you may see into the classroom.


  1. The Quiet Achiever – This student is one who may sit in the back of the classroom because he or she is shy and afraid of being called upon. But, he or she gives his or her full attention during class, takes notes when needed and never says a word. You may never notice this person, but he or she is probably doing well in the class, maybe even one of the best students.



  2. The Know-It-All – This student constantly has his or her hand up for everything – whether it is to share a personal experience that may be completely off-topic or to answer a question or to refute what the teacher has to say. This student’s avid participation in the class does not necessarily reflect his or her grade in the class.



  3. The Drifter – This student must have had a really late night or is just plain tired. He or she tries to stay awake in class, but to no avail. Every few minutes or so, you see this person’s eyes start to close and their head start to fall before he or she is startled awake. The process just continues on and on until his or her savior arrives – the bell/the end of class. Now, these students usually don’t mean to drift during class, but they can’t do anything to help it.
  4. The Subtle Sleeper – This student is someone who I admire. I know I can’t do it, but there are students who can position themselves in such a way that they’re napping and the teacher/professor has almost no idea.





  5. The Day Dreamer – This student is one who is not paying attention in class for whatever reason and just zones out. This could be a little embarrassing because when a teacher calls on this student, he or she sometimes has no idea what is going on and is caught in the act.





  6. The Texter – This student thinks he or she is texting under the desk well, but really isn’t. Most teachers and professors notice these things, especially when looks down often and takes both hands underneath the desk. Some students are able to pull it off either when teachers aren’t looking at them or because they’ve perfected the art.





  7. The Hider – This student hides behind his or her laptop – he or she may be texting, may be surfing the web, may be playing video games, you may never know. All you need to know about this student is that he or she takes sparse (sometimes detailed) notes to make it seem like he or she is doing work, but is really taking advantage of having a laptop up. These students may or may not have poor grades; they care enough to hide their disinterest well but not enough to pay attention in class.



  8. The IDC Student – This student just doesn’t care enough to pay attention or hide their boredom. He or she is straight-forward about their lack of interest and text or do whatever they feel like blatantly. Sometimes he or she gets away with it, sometimes he or she doesn’t. Once the “I don’t care” point comes for any student, it never ends.



  9. The Goofball - This student is one who is the jokester of the class. Almost every class has one - a student who likes being funny. Sometimes the teacher takes it well, and sometimes... the teacher doesn't and the goofball is shut down.






  10. The One Everyone Wants to Be – This student is just perfect – the teachers love him or her, his or her peers love him or her, he or she gets good grades, he or she is very involved with extracurriculars… all in all, the person everyone is insanely jealous of, yet can’t help but like that person. The person everyone wants to be.

Netflix broke everyone's heart and then stitched them back together within a matter of 12 hours the other day.

How does one do that you may wonder. Well they start by announcing that as of January 1st, 2019 'Friends' will no longer be available to stream. This then caused an uproar from the ones who watch 'Friends' at least once a day, myself including. Because of this giant up roar, with some threats to leave Netflix all together, they announced that 'Friends' will still be available for all of 2019. So after they renewed our hope in life, they released that it cost them $100 million.

$100 million is a lot of money, money that could be spent on variety of different shows.

Angels Are Always Above Us, Watching And Protecting, But Christmas Reminds Us How Much They're Missed On Earth

Maybe it is not the most wonderful time of the year because if it was, you would be here.

Each day as you grow older your Christmas list's becomes shorter and shorter. Mainly because the things you want can't be bought anymore. If you are experiencing another holiday without your loved ones, you know how true that is.

With the season rapidly coming up, I can't shake off these feelings of you not being here. Whether it has been a couple months, a couple years, or a couple decades, the reality is that you are not here anymore.

The holiday season is one of my favorite times of the year, and it always was. It was never about the presents under the tree. It was always about how a family unites into a whole and shares so much happiness and joy. Each year the holiday's are constantly changing and traditions are not being followed. Mainly, because our missing loved ones left a hole in our hearts, and nobody wants to continue the traditions without them.

So, the happiness and joy slowly start to fade away.

Every holiday season without you does not get easier. There is still a void in our hearts, that seem to never get filled. There is one less person who gets to open their Christmas presents, one seat left empty, one slice of pie not going to be eaten, one less person to hold hands with each other to say the prayer, one less person to text Merry Christmas and one less smiling, joyful face to see at the holiday time.

As the holiday's approach, you now have an angel ornament on your Christmas tree, you now might have an angel as your tree topper and angel decorations in your front yard. It is the little things you start to notice, those things are the things that let you know you will be OK this holiday season.

Christmas feels like a shattered piece of glass in your skin because you are no longer here to give us our hugs and Christmas kisses. Even though this is supposed to be the happiest time of the year, it is now indeed less merry and bright.

Though you are no longer here, I must remain thankful and cherish those who remain in my life because that is what Christmas is all about. Holiday's will never be the same without you, and you will never be forgotten. You will forever be in my heart every day of the year.

I have confidence you are up in heaven celebrating with your passed loved ones, and celebrating with those angels who are far away from home as well. I have confidence you are at peace, which helps guide me through this holiday season as well.

I know you'll be with us in spirit this holiday season.

Merry Christmas to all the angels who were a little far from home this Christmas.
