American school system
SO GLAD I NEVER HAVE TO LIVE THROUGH THIS EVER AGAIN
FUCKING NUMBER 6
MY GEOMETRY TEACHER WOULD GIVE US HOMEWORK AND WOULD HAVE TAUGHT IT IN A REALLY WEIRD WAY, SO I’D ASK MY DAD FOR HELP. HE’D SHOW ME HOW TO GET THE RIGHT ANSWER BUT USING A DIFFERENT METHOD. BUT HIS METHOD MADE IT MAKE SENSE TO ME. AND I’D GET THE RIGHT ANSWER BY DOING IT THAT WAY. BUT WHEN I WOULD TAKE A TEST, I’D GET IT BACK WITH A FAILED GRADE ON IT. SHE WOULD MARK EACH ANSWER AS WRONG, AND AFTER I’D CHECK WITH MY CLASSMATES AND FIND OUT I HAD THE RIGHT ANSWERS, I’D ASK IN FRONT OF EVERYONE, “HEY, WHY WAS THIS MARKED WRONG? I HAD THE RIGHT ANSWER” AND SHE’D FUCKING TELL ME THAT IT WAS BECAUSE I DIDN’T USE HER METHOD.
FUCK YOU, IRENE LINMAN.
Malaysian teachers in the public system were the worst. Number 6,7 and 8 were one of the biggest issues I had with them. We’d literally spend 2 hours just getting told off about how we were all “lazy, disrespectful, rude” students and we sat there just taking it. And Number 8. I hated that one.
That Living Skills teacher of ours was an absolute bitch, she had issues with me because one, I was a mixed blood student, two, she always humiliated me in class by making me go up to the board where we had to answer the questions. And would make me do the hardest one.
How to make things better: be really socially inept.
I once spent an entire day hiding in the back of the school library reading books because I didn’t want to come back from recess and when I went to get my backpack my teacher freaked out for some reason and gave me detention, which took longer than expected for some reason. She ended up having to give me a ride home because I couldn’t get in contact with my parents and it turns out they were panicking because I hadn’t come home on the bus.
That was a weird day.
I swear to god my grade 9 math teacher is the teacher in the picture, she even looked like her.
I hated that teacher.
