A discipliarian, yes. Maintaining structure in my classroom using rewards as well as consequences, yes. Creating a successful learning environment, yes.<quoted text>I can imagine 'the aunt' being a strict disciplinarian and a political 'adviser' in the classroom!
Being asked to be a supervising teacher for a young college intern from a nearby liberal school who could care less about their interns being unleashed on unwitting children, yes.
Political advisor, no. Fifth graders weren't all that interested.
