Poor Teachers

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.

  5. They gotta understand, people learn at different levels, not the same level for everyone.

  6. I remember when I was in school I had a phsycis teacher. That year I opted to take the dumb class thinking it would be easier. That fucker gave out detention like candy on Halloween. After a month I requested to be switched back into the smart kids physics class. I left there with a D minus but when I finished the smart kids physics I had a B+. Shows what a shitty teacher can do. Nice post man!

  7. Teachers in the school system these days don't have a clue how to teach! You have to teach in a fun way and not be so boring all the time! Learning should be fun. But, i agree. I have frustration with a lot of my teachers as well. Great post my friend!

  8. Had a teacher like this back in high school, When we had substitutes and the class acted up he would come back next day and call us all sum bags.

  14. I hated having teachers who didn't seem to have a grasp of teaching. I had this one Olsen who would almost always answer your question with another completely unrelated question. It was infuriating.

  15. there was a math teacher like this at UNF. he wrote his own book with his own techniques and if you used the RIGHT way of doing the math problems, he would mark it wrong since you didn't do it the way HE wrote in his book (which had lots of spelling and mathematical mistakes mind you)

  16. That professor is all too familiar bro, it sucks that they let these professors continue teaching even though it leaves their students even more confused and ultimately gives them a hard time when it shouldn't.
    Nice blog bro,
    supporting and following.

  17. I'll tell ya man. At least a teacher can't fire you. The worst they can do is give you a bad grade. Wait till you have an asshole boss.
