I Feel Boring

Published by at 9:14 am under Education,Teaching

It’s been a hard week, this last of the semester, with a persistent plagiarizer, a near mutiny about my final being unfairly difficult, and pleading students emitting buckets of tears because of not passing the class. I’m too soft-hearted not be be bothered, but too serious to succumb to pressure.

I asked my students to complete a survey about my classes. Here is a sampling of their comments:

  • I can learn very good ,important,common,grammar.I must get English very will.
  • I don’t like writhing because Im not good for writing.
  • The textbook and workbook are too heavy to bring everyday.
  • The papers of homework that I’ve done are my treasure.
  • I do not like my textbook,it always made me feel boring.
  • I hope Ginna can experience something clear.
  • I liked to do homework. Because I could review my class and feel teacher’ effort(love).
  • You are the great teacher. You always tried to teach more excitingly
  • I think your granddaughter is so cute!

I work three days next week, and have three days off after that. Then, while the other teachers take a three-week break, I will begin my new job. My title will be Assistant Program Manager/Instructor, which is actually quite impressive, if you ask me. Some of the work may not be earth-shatteringly exciting, but I expect to learn a great deal about the field of international education. And some of it should be inspiring. I think I’ll get to collaborate on cool stuff like curriculum development and assessment. I’m lucky to have such a great opportunity.

Tra la la. So there the end love Ginna.

    “The papers of homework that I’ve done are my treasure.” Well, I’d feel the same way, if I were in your class.

    “I hope Ginna can experience something clear.” I hope so too. I do, I do.

    I think your new title is very impressive, and the things you will help achieve in your role will be really darn exciting. WUV.

    I wish you gave your daughter some more of your love effort, instead of wasting it on your ungrateful students. Sheesh.

    Students are learn you a lot.

  4. There are two competing forces here. Students, driven by sentiments of “entitlement,” may make requests that would unfairly adjust their grade. However, in response to this, I’ve found many professors have developed a bias that prevents them from fairly evaluating legitimate concerns.
