What's the most ridiculous thing a teacher ever told you?
That I should learn all the math because I won't always have a calculator on me at all times.
Yeah, I never got that either. Most jobs that require math would probably allow a calculator.
"It actually takes you less energy overall if you just run instead of walking" - My freshmen year P.E. teacher to a few students who refused to run half a mile.
"No no no. It's not pronounced 'drink', dear, it's pronounced 'DWINK'. Repeat after me, 'DWINK'."
And of course, almost any time when an advanced math teacher tried to justify what they were making us do by giving us "real life" examples. Like, no, my grandfather IS a carpenter, and I can assure you that he has no earthly idea how to do what you just described.
Mr. Street, History: "If you studied history more and girls less you make something of yourself". He didn't understand that a teenager could do both. I ended up getting kicked out of his class which meant I had summer school, and an extra free period in my day. He really had it in for me for some reason and I never did find out why.
MY third grade teacher really had it in for me for some reason and I never did find out why, so I know the feeling.
All the kids dreaded getting her as a teacher and she was known as "Old lady Griffith" and had a very bad rep.
She tried to force me to be right handed,till my mother intervened. One morning,she just stuck a clock in my face and said:"What time is it?"
it was 9AM..But I looked up at her totally bewildered that an adult could not tell time! I then asked,in my young mind,a completely honest question:"You mean you don't know!?"
She was not amused,but the class was.
Does everyone have that one teacher in thier life that for some reason has it totaly out for them?
