My High School Teachers Sucked

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 25, 2013, 12:17 AM

Thats what I get for not getting into selective school, now the more I think about it, the more I realise that my teachers back in High School really sucked at their jobs. From a mature point of view now I can understand why certain teachers did certain stuff etc, whether its trying to teach a class of bad student or simply taking a day off to do whatever. Lets start with my maths teacher shall we?

Maths teacher: I was never good at maths, I'm an Asian fraud. All I remember learning is Sine, Cosine and Tangent. What were they? I have no idea, I just remembered they were somehow important. Yet I have never used it before afterwards, how weird right? So our class was pretty bad, it was a bad class in a bad school with a bad teacher, how bad? My Teacher used to teach a little bit then says he needs to get something from the office and then never come back. He did that so many times! I think he just went for a nap or something. He didn't wanna teach us, he knew we didn't wanna learn so he didn't bother.

English Teacher: One year we had a new english teacher, he looked like an old hippie who smoked too much weed back in his day. He was all pale and slow and looked tired all the time. We had him for like the first two lessons before he disappeared, we had different substitute teachers for like the rest of the year. I think he came back to teach one more lesson in the middle of the year then completely gone again. I also remember hearing he smoked a lot, some say he died of lung cancer and some say he got hit by a bus. We will never know what happened to him.

Another English Teacher: This teacher we all liked very much, because he may be one lazy ass guy but at least he didn't just disappear without saying goodbye. This one would pop on a video before he leaves, he says the best way to learn english is to watch a movie. And you know what? I agree! I have learnt so much english from movies compared with reading those boring books, everytime I pick up a book without pictures I get a massive headache... So yeah that year with the English Teacher we must've watched over 30 films just from the classes. The question is.. was he a good teacher or a bad teacher? Hmmm

Science Teacher: We had an indian teacher called Mr Kuma for science, we couldn't understand his english at all. It was both his heavy indian accent as well as using the wrong words all the time. One time he was meant to say 'Chemical Reaction' but he said 'Chemical Erection'. Its like come on dude! At least get us a teacher who can speak english!

Hence I did bad in school... well it was mostly my lack of interest. I was just more interested at talking with friends and playing Pokemon in class or drawing in my homework. I did do pretty good in maths one year though, it was when we had Ms Johanson, because she would wear a low top every class, so everytime we asked her a question she would come around and teach us while bending over revealing her big cleavage. so naturally... us 14 years old boys had lots of questions. I remember my friend Stanley would even stand up to get the best view. I think this is a tip for all female teachers trying to get motivation out of the class, just wear a low top and downblouse to teach. Yup. Ry-Spirit cares.

I loved just about all of my teachers. There's just one or two that I actually remember not liking. My second grade teacher, for example. I remember once it was reading time, and I guess you weren't supposed to get up or something, but I had finished reading my book and saw on the back cover some of the books we had in the classroom (I was easily amused as a kid). I got up and showed it to the teacher, saying something like "Look, we have these books, too!" and in response, she shouted at me to change my card to yellow (you all know the green-yellow-red behavior system, right?) and sit down. She literally shouted at me so loud, it echoed off the walls and everyone in class just stared at me. I obeyed and cried silently at my desk, it was the first time I'd ever been humiliated in front of my class, and I was so ashamed I didn't talk to anyone for the rest of the day.

Another time, I was sitting on the ledge of the classroom (the classroom was a portable classroom, so it had a ramp that you could sit on) in line with my class while we once again waited for our teacher to let us into the classroom (she was at the school office, I think, on her way back), and one kid saw me and said he was going to tell the teacher on me (rat, he was a worse kid than I was). I decided to accept my punishment and just wait for her to come back. She told me I'd have detention the next day. Simple, right? The next day at lunch, I had to walk with her, as she was going to take me to the classroom where I'd be staying until lunch was over. Suddenly, she made me stop and said "Don't move from this spot. I'll be watching you." and then walked down the grassfield and began chatting with another teacher. I just stood there like an idiot the entire lunch period! I remember some younger students came over to me with a jump rope and asked if I wanted to play with them because I looked lonely. I lied and said I was fine because I didn't want to leave and get in trouble. After the lunch bell rang, she rejoined me and we went back to class.

Come on, I was in SECOND grade, I was like, 7! Some of my friends who were in her class with me said they liked her because she let them chew gum in class or something, I don't really know. I even told my mom once that I didn't want to be in her class anymore. My mom always went to talk to her about what was going on, and why did I want to leave, and, naturally, the teacher was so sweet to my parents and told them how much she liked me and thought I was a good girl and she didn't know why I wanted to leave either. I only remember a few times she was actually nice to me, but it was until just last year that I actually told my mom all of this, and she was furious to hear how she had treated me. After second grade, I didn't see that teacher anymore, she probably moved, but I'm glad- she was such a grumpy old lady.

Normally, I don't speak or write about people this way, but I think my reasons are completely justified.

I guess I can say that I'm lucky; I've been home-schooled my entire life. .3. Therefore, I didn't have any teachers. Although, I've been bouncing around different programs lately, some of them involving teachers. I started High School with one of those programs. My last math teacher... UGH, I still can't get her annoying, pseudo-southern accent out of my head. Every time she was doing a part of a problem that involved subtraction, she'd chant, "Subtracting is adding the opposite!". OY! And my current math teacher.... I swear, she's out to get me. :stare: She lurks nearby me when she's in class... *shudder*
(I go to a hybrid school, where all off my curriculum is online, and I only come "in class" once a week on a specified day and time. Complicated, no?)
Seriously, what's with the mathematicians and hating me? :noes:

I remember during my high school freshman year the school disciplinary got hit by a bus. First of all I would like to say she was probably the worst disciplinarian ever. In our school we weren't allowed to wear low-cut tops, anything the reveals above the knees, and anything the exposed the shoulders. But this lady would come in a miniskirt and tight tops with a lot of the buttons undone, so most students thought whats the point of following the rules if you don't even follow them. Shouldn't the teachers have an even stricter dress code than the students, though I admit the dress code wasn't very strict. And there was a bunch of other little things she would bitch at students for that none of the other disciplinary cared about. So while she was gone in the hospital we had free reign at school.

I also had a disappearing teacher too. I think she was my Spanish teacher but she was pretty cool. Her class wasn't bad either. But sometime in the middle of the school year she just vanished and nobody knew where she went. And then we had a million substitutes after that.

And my last teacher story. I had a pre-calc teacher who wasn't even a math teacher. He was a science teacher. I know this because he told our class, he didn't even have a pre-calc degree or whatever degree you need to teach precalc.

My precalc/calc teacher in highschool was SO BAD. I realize now that I've taken calc 1&3 in college that she just wasn't that good at math herself xDD

My art teacher was a sweetheart, but her classes were terrible. All we did was sit and draw with very little direction. She was an amazing artist in her own right, but try as she did, she just couldn't teach. I feel bad I usually turned in fan art (probably to same proportions as my gallery has it) but I always experimented, and learned more from observing her and other students who were particularly talented work.

My math classes were always boring XD; I was the most advanced kid in my classes until I hit third grade... I was doing high school work by then, but teachers refused to put me in an advanced class or even give me extra work to do. I lost interest and never quite learned my multiplication tables right. I'm slowly learning them now, but I always had problems with easy math questions... It baffled teachers in high school because I could always figure out the most difficult test questions, but usually missed the easiest ones. The whole "not wanting to move a student to an advanced class" issue was a running theme in every school I attended. Sadly, Art class was the only one where the teacher actually gave enough of a damn to try and assign projects on par with a persons skill level. She may have been bad at teaching, but she put in a lot of effort. Can't fault her for that, but I do see the truth in the saying "Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach." Not all teachers fall into that, but I've seen some pretty good examples. XD

All but one of m English teachers were terrible, though. I remember getting all the high school teachers into a very heated debate once when I was in sixth grade XDD It was all about the use of a comma before "and" (example: blank, blankity, blankie, and blankadoodledoo) Their debate ended in a stalemate, so I continue to use the comma before 'and'. I understood both sides of the argument, though... it was all a matter of personal preference but wasn't wrong either way. To this day and as much studying as I've done on writing, I've seen nothing to the contrary.

My math teacher and french teacher are terrible.

The math teacher isn't so bad personality wise but she's a horrible teacher who can't explain any math concept if her life depended on it. Her explaining would get me confused on math stuff I already knew. Plus, she can't control the class and she's really emotional; it kind of makes me feel bad for her since you can literally see her on the brink of tears. I don't think she was meant to be a teacher. I'm an asian fraud too, just terrible at math. And who came up with the idea of combining letters with numbers?

My french teacher is just downright awful. She abuses her dog and I think she hates kids... She also verbally abuses everyone and saying stuff like "I hate your guts and I never want to see you again." What freaks me out the most is her personality shift: she can be screaming at us one minute and then doing this creepy attempt at smiling like nothing happened. She keeps telling us how we'd thank her later when we speak fluent french but I don't think that's going to happen. I swear, the entire hour and fifteenish minutes of class, I'm staring at the clock. Everyone basically stopped trying.

Still, it doesn't sound as bad as your teachers. And the rest of my teachers are pretty cool. :D

I think my high school does not do a Good job of hiring sometimes but half of the teachers we got. They have changed their teachers several times also.

My 1st ASL teacher, she was darn right crazy. She was short, does not know personal space, and after she yells, she returns to try and smile but its creepy how she does it. She knew ASL, but she does not know how to teach older kids. My Dad also tried to talk to her, but she has like this inside psychology, he couldn't reason or help her. I was so afraid of that class. But after her, the other ASL teacher was ok. She was awesome.

During my years of high school, we never had a consistent teacher who stayed, but I enjoyed those teacher. And after I leave, they finally got a teacher. We also never had a consistent Civic/Economics teacher. My class, so happen to get not the best one. All he did was hand out worksheet and he did teach but it was boring. He also encouraged bad behavior sometimes, even though I felt he was joking.

Everyone else I had was pretty much fine. I enjoyed some of my english classes, and sometimes math classes. Sometimes I enjoyed bible classes, (yes its a christian school). Their drama department is amazing, and sometimes the events are really good.

Gughh at least you didn't have my shitty counselor who thought I was a typical high school prep.
She tried convincing me that I wanted to be in cosmetics or things of that sort after I told her I wanted to be in 3D Animation.
Her exact words:
"I just don't think that would be cut out for you. No, I KNOW you wouldn't like it."

I took my damn 3D Animation class and loved the hell out of it xD

That woman ruined my high school plan lol I would have graduated 2 years early with 26 out of 21 credits. Dx
