...has got to go to my Human Growth and Developemnt teacher.
She walked in to class the first day and told us, "this is a boring class. There is nothing I can do to make it interesting, we'll just have to muddle through. Be satisfied with a 'C'". She also ran through the chapters, having us highlight things to read on our own time -- esentially, she hasn't taught us a blooming thing.
Test day: we take our test. She passes them out, and makes us GRADE EACH OTHERS TESTS!! We ask her how she's going to grade them. She said, "well if it were a 50 question test, that'd be an esay 2 points a piece, but since there are 57, the math gets to hard to figure out how to do that. I'll just see how many each of you got wrong and then let you know what # wrong is an 'A', which a 'B', and so forth. If you need a numerical grade, come see me, but I don't want all 35 of you coming to ask what you made on your test."
Oh my freaking God, what a waste of decent teacher space! This lady has a masters in Psychiatry and she thinks the subject is BORING!?!?? What a disappointment -- I find this stuff fascinating, but she is determined to make me hate it by the end, I am sure.

Is it too late to transfer to another section?
BTW, I'd trade the English prof I had, who came in high on marijuana to each class...we were given an impossible assignment, our sole grade for the course -- a 20 to 40 page paper "comparing and contrasting" Moby Dick and Remembrance of Things Past (Proust). 20 years later, this is an "incomplete" on my transcript (as it was for 15 out of 18 students in the class). Just couldn't fudge a 20 page paper on two such disparate writers. Our class time consisted of him reading Proust and saying "cool" every now and then. Doncha love tenure?
