Lovely #Memories – Sad #Goodbyes

8 May

My students returned to school today for graduation photos.  They do not take classes their final semester, so most already have jobs, internships, etc.  Some are already leaving for grad school!  I’ve known them for 3 years – love them so much! 

In our university, students don’t pick their classes.  Everyone in their class takes the same 10-11 classes together each semester.  Then they share a dorm.  So all 60 students in her class (Finance 1, 2013) have been together pretty much 24 hr a day for 4 years.  Making great memories, but sad goodbyes.  

Life of an Foreign #Teacher ~ Computer Catastrophes

4 May
1:20 hour into class, for the 5th week in a row, all the computers crashed AGAIN. Completely deleting all the students hard work. Even saved documents were wiped off.
Β 
Class Leader immediately: Don’t worry teacher, I know. I will go make them come.
Β 
Me; why, yes Kevin darling. That might be an excellent idea. (**Insert Angry Face). And see if you can find the building manager. Or their boss. Or the boss of the boss.
Β 
Class: oooohhhh. *Waits eagerly and vengefully to enjoy the fireworks about to commence*

Final’s Week Conversations

28 Dec

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!
