Did you guys ever had a teacher that just go on your and your parents nerves?Did you guys ever had a teacher that just go on your and your parents nerves? Claudia #questionnaire
Haha oh yes
Yes, she failed me by 1% in math lol ugh. That was quite a few years ago now
@Melissa I was failed in Spanish by one grade point! I get it, I didn’t try that hard, but mannnnn. A whole wasted school year.
My screenwriting teacher is annoy both my mom and I because he’s making me feel like a terrible writer for not doing things his way.
I’ve had teachers like that. Have you tried meeting with him, going over your work together so that you know what he’s looking for?
I had to completely change my writing style in one English class.
I’m gonna try to meet with him next week. But if he says I’m doing it wrong-for the fifth time-I’m might see if my mom is all right with me getting a different class…
Good luck. What does he say you’re doing wrong?
@Lindsey I’m not outlining the right way. He says a character needs to ALWAYS have two quests and that I’m just summarizing my story.
I always hated outlines. Have you given his way a try? You don’t have to stick with it. Maybe he’s trying to teach you all a strong “foundation”. Teachers love to do that
@Claudia are you in college? If so why does it matter what your mom wants? Why is she getting involved?
@Caitlen not sure if that’s the case for Claudia, but my parents always had an input on the classes I took. It’s not like they had the final say, but I could always get a second opinion on my schedules and the courses I took
@Sharon I just took the classes I was supposed to take to check off the boxes for graduation. If I had room for an elective, then I took whatever I wanted. My parents didn’t care at all as long as I didn’t fail. They knew I was an adult at that point and would make my own decisions.
Thanks. I needed that.
In what way are they annoying you?
After like 5-12 times of trying to please him on assignment he keeps saying I’m doing it ‘wrong’
Does he have guidelines for the assignment and maybe that’s why? I personally would just do what he says to get the grade. It doesn’t mean you have to keep writing that way.
@Claudia have you asked him to point out specifically what you’re doing wrong?
I had a college professor who also took forever getting papers back. We had three major papers due in the class and those plus two tests were our only grades in the class. She didn’t give us back our first paper until after the second paper was due. Turns out she had some quirks with writing that threw me for a loop, and I made those same “errors” in my second paper since I didn’t know she wanted things that certain way. I think I made low B’s or even C’s on those papers. Fixed the “issues” (which I didn’t think were issues….I think it was just her, since I never had any problems with any other professors and I wrote a LOOOOT of papers lol) for the last paper and did well enough on the tests, but I still got an A- in the class. Brought my GPA down from a 4.0 to a 3.97 and it took another two semesters of straight A’s to bring my GPA back up to 3.98 which is what I graduated with. Yes I’m still bitter. I could get A’s in freakin organic chemistry but couldn’t land one in Abnormal Psych ??♀️
In first grade, I had a teacher that didn’t pick up her feet when she walked and chewed on the tip of her pen and shrugged every time I had a question. I remember complaining about it to my parents and I think they talked to the principal about teachers being more professional.
I had just come from overseas military schools (which are notoriously good schools) and my parents were not happy about putting me in a school with a meh kind of reputation.
My parents weren’t very involved with my schooling, but my worst teacher was in college and he used to make male students repeat questions that female students had asked because he didn’t like the sound of female voices. He also refused to give me credit for answering a problem correctly on an exam even though I’d gotten it right because it wasn’t done the exact same way he had it on the board. (It was a graph and I had put them on the opposite axis than he had, so it was the mirror image of what he’d written).
My reaction is to the fact that he sounds really sexist. But I gotta disagree with you on the graph. If you put it on the wrong axis then the answer was wrong, mirror image or not…ie -4 is not the same as 4.
It wasn’t math. It was psychology. And it was still correct. I had everything in the correct spots for where I’d placed them on the graph.
@Kahla ok if you say so. I have a degree in psychology though and am having a hard time picturing what situation would make that correct. But maybe you just had a wackadoodle professor who made you do weird graphs lol. I’d have been pissed about the sexist comments so I wouldn’t put it past him to have some weird take on psychology
@Caitlen I also have a degree in psychology and I can assure you that I would not be saying I got a question right if I didn’t. I fully understood the concept that was being taught.
Lol those teachers were my parents… ??
My art teacher in middle school was giving me a B and ruining my all A’s. My mom lit into him. I got an A in the end and at parent teacher conferences he was like to my mom “you’re the little woman you yelled at me?!” My mom is short and he was over six feet tall. After that I was one of his best students.
Lol she pulled a Beverly Goldberg?!
