In text (1), the pupil focuses strongly on the disciplinary aspects of being a teacher, and we can assume that the remarks about a neat class, bad smells and unwashed pupils have their origins in the pupil’s current negative experience of being in class: her class is probably not a good one for her. The same applies to the author of text (2): ‘children that will listen to me every day’ must refer to experiences of unruly classes where children do not listen to the teacher – hence the modal ‘would like’.
