Would it be rude to tell my teacher to stop smoking, if not, how can I put it as gently as possible?
She is an amazing teacher who knows a great deal. She has control of the class and makes learning effective but her breath and classroom smells of cigarettes and coffee. For her well being I want her to stop smoking and in turn help me and my classmates learn better without worrying about second hand smoking. Just to clarify, she doesn't smoke in class, she takes breaks to smoke and the stench attaches itself to her and dissipates in the room. It bothers my classmates and I, taking away from our learning in our STEM class. Is it wrong to ask this of her, or am I doing the right thing? #morality #education #education-management #student #school-counseling #counselor
Yes, and no it's not rude, necessarily, it is concerning or maybe you set of morals on smoking. I don't know if it's best thing or not to say anything. If the person is smoking and prefer them not to do it when your around then you could say something or leave the area.
I think you let them know that you appreciate who they are and how they are as person, yet wondered why they do they smoke? Especially with the problems with smoking can cause health issues for them and others down the road. Maybe you'll get the answer your looking for or not?
Its important to know if she/he does it in front of students? in the facility? It depends.
No, it wouldn't. You can write a gentle letter to your teacher. First, saying how great she/he is as teacher and mention his/her qualities. Then, just say that smoking sometimes bothers and if it is possible that don't smoke during the study time.
