Student 1– “How many chances do I have to do the Final Exam.”
Me — “One” ?!?
Student 1– “But I want to go to graduate school!”
Me — “Then you sure as heck better be able to do this test in one try or graduate school is probably a no-go!”
Student 1– “0_0 oh, I know.”
Me — “Then why oh why did you ask?!?!?!”

Student 2– “Teacher, some people in my class have very bad grades. Can we fix it.”
Me — A) this is finals week for the semester, so no. B) your grades are bad because you cheated on 2 assignments, failed to complete 4 assignments, gave me one-word answers for other assignments, and skipped class 4+ times. So don’t you think you should have worried about your grades then instead of now? — And you are the class leader — you should have led your class better, instead your group has the worst participation.”
Student 2 — “Oh. Ok teacher. I know.”
Me — “Then why oh why oh why did you ask?!?!?!?!?!?!”

I Have Great Students

17 Feb

It is seriously unfair to other teachers that I got the best students in the world. πŸ™‚ Remember I love each of you and I believe in you! You deserve the best this world has to offer, thank you for being so amazing!

Student Humor ~ Yeah. . . No.

Student who turned in assignment 1 week + late ~ “But Teacher, I explained everything, I think you must have forgot”

Teacher ~ Um. . . . I don’t think ‘I had a personal reason’ counts when I told you in three forms of communication (written, oral, and electronic) that we needed a note and more details and you ignored them all. Trust me, if ‘personal reason’ had been enough to get me out of English papers in college, I would have used it a whole lot more!
