The Teacher Thread

Post by Cyberhamon » Fri Feb 13, 2009 5:43 pm

Well, I know that most of us are either in high school or college, or are recently out of school. This means that we all have recent memories of teachers; good, bad, or otherwise. So, I figured that we could relieve some of the stress by talking to each other about teachers that particularly stand out in either direction. Any positive or negative experiences are welcome for discussion.

However, don't give the teachers' names. They're unnecessary, and I don't want to risk trouble, even if that's unlikely.

You know with homeschooling my mum is my teacher but i basically do everything for myself, so that means i should complain about myself does it not? or maybe i should complain about my Paces, in that case i will cpmplain about my math paces which i hate because they never give good examples or anything....

Hmm... yet another homeschooler? I must say I find that... well, a little out of the ordinary. I mean, we homeschoolers make up, what, 0.0001% of the population under 20? And yet we have three on this board.

Anyway, I, like Elfy, have only my mother to complain about; and even if I did have any complaints, (which I don't), I wouldn't dare post them here.

Although, now that you mention it, I did take an English class a while back from someone else... writing skills don't run in our family, (we're mostly technically minded, if you couldn't tell...) so mom figured I ought to take English from a teacher who actually knew something about it. I learned absolutely nothing from the class though...

Anyway, check back a year from now when I've taken Calc I and will be taking Calc II. Maybe I'll have some stories to tell by then...

I know a teacher X who is VERY bad at teaching sports. X's sports lessons are torture. She makes us ski for two hours (fun in my opinion), but holds an average-skilled classmate of mine to a shorter trail, because "it would be LETHAL if you went on that trail!" However, the trail classmate's forced to take is just a shortcut on the trail said classmate would want to take. And the longer trail, the one she'd want to go on, the bit branching off from the shorter trail and joining back again, is nostly flat.
Also our maths teacher Q has got NO IDEA how to pronounce 'tricky' words like and. Despite yelling from half the class, he STILL pronounces and end.

This is downhill skiing or cross-country?

Well, I didn't think it would be downhill... I don't know of a single school in the US that has that as P.E. But if it were downhill, that would be awesome. There'd be a rush of high-schoolers wanting to go to Finland as exchange students...

Our school had downhill, until someone injured themselves doing so and the school had to pay out some money.

You go that right. I love downhill skiing.

I had a science teacher last year who was on probation two years before that for looking down girl's shirts. Also, in third grade, I had a Reading(yep, that was what we called the class) teacher who made a classmate cry, but aside from that bit, it's really not a funny story, so I'm not going to share it.
