what does it mean when a teacher says... - February 27th 2009, 12:54 AM

"I just wanted to make sure that you didn't think less of me after what happened"

he was referring to how i told him that a friend was cutting so we could talk about it, and then apparently he was legally required to tell my guidence councelor. we talked like two other times about it, i sent him an email, whatever. i could talk on and on about every little detail (i talk a lot, and most of this is perfect)

so, yeah, after class he's like, "hey, tamsdon, are you okay?" and he said it so nice. idk. "i just wanted to see if u were okay, like if your friend is okay after this time" or something like that, i was kinda in a daze. i blush a lot, so i was busy doing that. and then he said the line at the top ^

thoughts?

If a teacher is a good teacher, they care about there students. He may have been referring to the fact that hey may have thought that you think he doesn't care about you. ( Hope that made sense.)
That is really all I can think of when he said that because any other thing I come up with doesn't seem logical for a student/teacher relationship

I get the impression it is because he wanted to make sure you did not resent him because he was obliged to tell the guidance councillor which you could have seen as a betrayal of confidence

Your teacher was probably concerned that maybe you or your friend had a hard time after he told the counselor, and he just wanted to make sure you/your friend was pulling through.
He sounds like he's a good teacher who just simply cares

He means that he hopes you dont think less of him because he HAD to tell the guidance counceller.. hes hoping that you still trust him and wil talk to him

i kind of probably came off like....no, i don't trust you, but im polite and will smile and kid around like we do in class (i happen to sit right near him). or idk how he probably thinks i think. he is pretty cool. he doesn't hold grudges or anything. i just...i dont want to talk about it anymore (not just with him, hah), but i do like talking to him.

Hey, first off I love your name Tamsdon thats such a neat name

Maybe your teachers just checking on you. He prolly cares about you. If you dont want to talk about it why dont you tell him that you dont want to and if you do want to talk to him you'll come to him.

This situation is quiet similar to one that happened to me (but it was the other way round and about something else). However, the same thing was said to both of us.

Your teacher has to follow what he is told and this is a serious matter, that he wouldn't be allowed to deal with himself. I found that what he ment by what he said is that he hopes you would still feel like you can still trust him like you did before, that you would understand why he did what he did and that ou are still coping and that you are still okay after it and it hasnt made you or your friend even worse.

Hope this helped you.
