Today I wanted to vent my frustration with one of the teachers I have.
Let's just call him Carter. Carter is a horrible teacher. He has a very difficult to follow teaching style which leaves me completely confused after the lecture. He seems to be under the impression that everyone in the class is very familiar with the material, which is simply not the case. The end result is that I feel like I am paying thousands of dollars to sit down and listen to a monkey 5 days a week.
The worst part is the testing though. Oh, god, the testing. First of all, his review sheets are incredibly broad in scope. Some of the topics are not even in the book or online, since he uses his own words, and if you missed it during his convoluted teaching style, prepare to get a B on his tests, and best. While the review is broad, his questions are incredibly specific. The average grade of his tests is F. And after all these problems, he still has the nerve to stand up in class and tell all the students how bad they are.
It's this kind of trash that makes me resent going to college. Why do I have to deal with this just to receive a piece of paper that will help me get a job?
To any teachers out there, don't destroy your students' desire to learn with insane expectations. Be understanding, and your students will make you enjoy your job.
