I Have Not Been Getting Along With My Latest Instructor Why Do You Ask?

May 23rd, 2011 by skippy

Instructor: You did this part of the assignment wrong. You were only supposed to have curves on half of the anchor points.
Me: That’s not what the instructions said.
Instructor: I had an example picture.
Me: Was the assignment to follow the instructions or to copy your example?

Instructor: As an advancing school we use only the most recent version of the software.
Me: The Adobe website says you’re lying.

Instructor: We pride ourselves at this institution of being an educational leader in cutting edge technology.
Me: Well I can pride myself on being the most prolific male porn star in the world, but that won’t make it so.

Instructor: Well since you already know this material, maybe you could use this an an opportunity to share your knowledge with the beginner students?
Me: I know teachers don’t get paid or treated well right now, and that is a shame, but have we really gotten to the point where I am expected to pay you for the privilege of teaching your students for you?

    Reminds me of one of my own teachers, in class he could only copy what was written in book, used jargon in every place he could, and most of time his words made no sense, his favorite phraces were “look it up from the book” and “how is it possible you don’t understand” accompanied by “you’re just lazy”

    I wonder if he’s even got a teacher’s license…


  4. Psyberian Says:

    The correct answer is.

    I would be glad to teach this. My consulting fee is….


  5. JoAnn Abbott Says:

    I re-took a couple of psych classes as refreshers a few years back only to find that 2 of my professors had learned everything from on line classes. I would quietly go up to them after class and teach them how to correctly pronuounce the terms they had been misusing that day…it was really sad.

    The more I hear about this bunch, the lower my opinion of them. Skippy, I gotta wonder if you are wasting your money on them.

    Because I want a piece of paper that says I have a degree and thus get hired more easily, and I want to still have the time to deal with my kids.

    Besides, you don’t hear about the parts where I am actually learning stuff because it is less funny.


    Ian M reply on May 24th, 2011 11:56 pm:

    Fair enough. Certainly unfunny stuff where they display some semblance of a clue is of much less interest to we great unwashed masses. But based on what I’ve actually heard so far …. just sayin’.

    Anyhow, good luck and hang in there.

    That last one hit close to home. I had a teacher make me a TA for a class…just so I could go in and teach it when he didn’t show up one night. That sucked.

    Are you sure that there might not be a better school out there, to accomplish this? Seems like the school in question was scraping the bottom of the barrel, when they found your instructors.


  8. Andrew Says:

    Same thing happens with me in the Advanced Network Engineering courses…

    In general I dislike the system where person is required to pay fortunes for his/her education, if someone wants to study in some classy university so as to make sure (s)he gets his/her degree from the best university there is and is ready to pay for it, then be my guest, but to be required to pay fortunes for any education?
