I'm taking geometry honors this year, and my teacher is horrible. She teaches DIRECTLY from the textbook, but somehow she manages to do it in a way that makes no sense, is impossible to follow, and then she doesn't answer our questions. I always have a lot of questions because I can't figure out what she's talking about (and neither can anyone else, I'm just the only one with the guts to ask) and she gets mad.
Today, she was explaining a problem I didn't get (I didn't ask though; she was explaining it because nobody was volunteering an answer). I still didn't get it, but rather than interrupt her, I was going to wait until she was done explaining. Then, I remember the past times I'd asked for help and decided to just read the textbook later one for help. However, after she finished explaining she called me out in front of EVERYONE and was like "Do you understand it, Blake?"
I shrugged, and she got all mad and gave me an attitude and said "Well where did I lose you?"
I answered with "When you started talking."
She glared at me, and went silent. I thought she was going to kick me out of the class, but she just went on explaining in the exact same way again. Finally, another girl in my class raised her hand and explained it in a completely different and simpler way and I understood perfectly. And the teacher got MAD at her. When I'm really mad, I have a tendency of crying (which sucks, I can totally picture myself in a massive fist fight bawling my eyes out), and I was mad so it was my natural reaction. And she started glaring at me.
Thankfully, class ended, but my next period teacher noticed me crying and somehow the gifted class teacher found out and called me to the office. She asked what was wrong so I told her, and she said she HATES the geometry teacher and one year had so many problems with her, the principal had to get involved. She told me that a ton of other gifted kids have problems with her because she likes feeling superior and she knows that we don't put up with shit like other kids might. So the geo. teacher apparently feels intimidated by us. And she told me that if I really want to annoy her and get back at her, I should ask TONS of questions, even if I understand what she's teaching. And she said that she's going to get a bunch of the geometry kids together and we can all teach ourselves, and she can help us and get one of the office aids who is qualified to teach math to help us. And she also basically said she can bitch the geo. teacher out if I want since the geometry teacher already hates her.
She basically made my year right then x]
