So, another person, with another rant. Lets see how this turns out.
I am just going to cut it clean, and give you an unbiased scenario. I would just like your opinions please, if you all wouldn't mind sharing your
piece of mind.
Thursday of this week, in my Senior Personal and Interpersonal Communication class, my teacher had us do presentations. They were easy presentations,
we just had to cover a section in our PIC book, and teach it to the class. We taught it via power point, and it was a very clean project. Dry cut
information, not much to do.
In my group, I did most of the work. I made the power point, I took all the notes, and designed and put together the review game. Sydney helped a
little, but Shaun and Amber just sat there. Not a big deal, as long as the work got done, I didn't care who had to do it.
So we get done presenting, and go sit down. Our presentation went well, I made some funny jokes about the definitions, and I talked fine. I had just
came from weight training, and I was tired from running and squats. I go to my desk, and sit down, wait for the next presentation.
A few more people go, and apparently there are two or three people talking on the other side of the room. She snaps, and goes off on us. She was
really yelling at us, and going off the edge. She started calling us a bad class, and threw around 'ridiculous' and 'outrageous' a lot. I didn't
think anything of it, wasn't a big deal, didn't pertain to me.
Then my good friend Mary mumbled "Jesus Christ..", and she lost it again. She started yelling at Mary for using Jesus's name in vain. Because this
situation doesn't exactly fit in well with school, (Yelling at a child for breaking one of the 10 commandments) other students started to tell my
teacher that she didn't have a right to be that angry.
She flipped out again, and told the students it wasn't their place to try an stick up for another student while they were being disciplined. I
thought that was pretty ridiculous, but let it roll off my back. She wanted to see Mary after class, Also thought that was hooky.
After presentations, she started ranting about how the class is the worst she has ever had. Then she specifically said, "Never in my 6 years of
teaching, have I seen a class that is this horrible. I am actually dreading every day I have to teach this class, I don't want to. If you guys think
you are going to review with me for your chapter test coming up, you can forget it. I had all these review games planned, but because you are such a
ridiculous class, it's not happening anymore. You can check out a text book and learn by yourself."
I spoke up, told her we didn't do anything wrong, and that if you have a problem with three people, to take it up with them, and not yell at the
whole class. She got even more pissed, and kept on ranting.
Like okay man, we didn't do anything wrong. three kids were talking. That's it. It wasn't loud or obnoxious, they were talking among themselves. We
really were not being that bad. I can say truthfully.
So when class comes to an end, she gives us an assignment for homework. We were to describe how we can make the class better as an individual, and
then as a group. I wasn't about to do this assignment, it's ridiculous.
So the next day, after more presentations, she collected the papers, and read them in front of the class. I wrote at the last minute, on some notebook
paper, "We didn't do anything wrong, you were rude to us." She stood up there, and read it to the class. People started laughing, and she flipped
out even more. I spoke up again, told her she was downright rude to us, and that I wasn't about to right an apology letter for something I didn't
So after an argument with her, and a few other students that like to play teachers pet, class was over. People were trying to tell me to stop while I
was arguing. I didn't really.
Her main point that she kept yelling was that she wasn't going to show us respect, until we showed her respect. But the thing is, we have all showed
her respect. There are like three kids that didn't do their work, and talked during class. The rest is fine.
So like an hour ago, my Mom showed me an email that she sent to me, and my principal. She said that my offensive language and rude conduct got me the
detention. But I made sure that I wasn't rude, and that I didn't say any offensive language. So, I am going to have to go into the office tomorrow,
and explain this situation to my principal, and to Mrs. D. This is going to be fun.
