Day 22: Gettin' On My Soapbox

Today's prompt is to rant about something. Get up on your soapbox and tell us how you really feel. (a pet peeve, a current event, a controversial topic, something your husband or roommate or neighbor or boss does that really ticks you off)

Because yesterday was my last day of school, what better day to finish out the semester than to complain about my professor? That's right, there isn't one. All college professors- take notes. 

If you're using a new book in your curriculum, read the entire book before you teach it to your students! You guys, my professor is using a new book this semester and she hasn't read it. She has repeatedly put things in the test study guide that she's neither lectured about, nor is it in the book. 

Keep Blackboard grades up to date. If it's not going to be used, thats fine, whatevs. I'll just ask for my grade. Do not half ass it, if you do decide to use it (same goes for high school teachers!). For example, according to Blackboard, I currently have a 75% in the class.  But my professor has said on several occasions that it's not correct. Uhm, HELLO! By the way, she can't give me my grade either. Unorganized, say whaaat? Yeah. 

Take it as a sign when fifteen or less people are in your class at the end of the semester. Literally. I was absent last week, but J takes the class with me and he said there were FIVE people there...

Needless to say, I'm glad it's over and I'm looking forward to starting a fresh semester in September!

Honestly... the quality of teachers is diminishing. The internet has made it so that not even educators have to master their own material.
