My kids don’t have school today. It is their fall break. Unfortunately, I still have class, but I will be finished at noon. My first class is fine. We do our group presentations over our textbook. It’s not a big deal. I am more worried about getting my midterm back in the dreaded class. The dreaded professor passes them back. I am not thrilled with my grade, but I accept it and move on. I have already determined I may still be able to pull off an “A” even with this score, but if I don’t well…I don’t. The fact that my GPA is perfect aside from might happen in this course speaks volumes about a professor and not about me and my capabilities.
I’m not going to lie…I am writing this late so I do not recall anything about these days 🙂
Blah, just blah. I am counting down. This is all I have to keep me going. I hate my dreaded class. Today I walked out 10 minutes before class was over because my professor just flat out made me mad. I cannot learn in this type of environment. He is combative and aggressive and I will never ever be okay with this EVER. I am so irritated. Why is he the only one that teaches this class? I am angry because I have to pay for this. This class holds the key to my future, yet nothing about it has really helped to learn how to be a better teacher. NOTHING. I do the readings and what I want to discuss is the content of those readings and how to apply this information in a classroom. Instead, he tries to have us make a personal application based on what we “read in High School” or in another class this semester. I am 34 years old. High School was a long time ago. I spend 3 hours of my life driving to and from school each day. After that, I spend the remainder of my day transporting my three children to their various activities. THE ONLY THING I HAVE TIME TO READ IS THE READING I HAVE FOR CLASSES – HOW DARE YOU CALL ON ME AND MAKE ME FEEL INCOMPETENT BECAUSE I AM NOT CURRENTLY READING A NOVEL? YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT MY LIFE IS LIKE. YOU WOULD NOT LAST A DAY IN MY SHOES! SHAME ON YOU. YOU FAIL. SOMEONE GAVE YOU POWER AND AUTHORITY BY GIVING YOU YOUR JOB, BUT I AM DONE. YOU KNOW LONGER HAVE POWER OVER ME.
