Most teachers, I'll say 75% of them, are overpaid, pieces of thrash who take perverse pleasure in degrading a kid. The only reason they get into the profession is because they get 3 paid months off in the summer. The fact is, society has treated these windbags with undeserving reverence for too long!
Why I am so anti- teacher? Because they played a big part in how I am today. I have low self esteem, no social skills, no friends and I constantly worry. When I was in school, the teachers I had would look the other way when other kids mercilessly teased me, destroying my still developing self esteem. Not one teacher I had through twelve years of school attempted to stop it!
I remember two teachers in particular. The first one was named Mr. Kibby, a shop teacher I had in 7th grade. One day, I didn't do a project right or something. So, Mr. Kibby decided that the best way for me to learn from my mistake was to humiliate me in front of the class. He had me remove my shoes, place them on his desk, and had me walk around for the remainder of class in my socks, while Kibby made wisecracks about my shoe odor. My classmates thought my humiliation was hilarious as did that piece of crap Kibby. Who cared if I step on nail or something as long as the class thought that Mr. Kibby was cool!
The second teacher was an art teacher in 8th grade named Ms. Mattern. During one of her classes, I had a classmate, Matt Jensen, ask me a question that no matter how you answered it, you were trapped. The question he asked was whether I was a virgin. Now, you would think that Ms. Mattern, who heard him ask the question, would have done something to stop or deflect attention from a question like that. But she didn't. I remember looking at her and she was staring at me wanting to hear my answer! She was interested in the sex life of a 13 year old! How damn degrading!
Teachers are not interested in learning about disorders such as social phobia. They only care about their overinflated paychecks arriving on time and planning their summer vacations. They don't care about their students. Most of them go out of there way to destroy a student's hopes and dreams. Next to pro athletes, entertainers and lawyers, the teaching profession is the fourth most overpaid occupation in this country.
If I were the poster that originally created this topic, I would go straight to the school board and ask that the teacher be fired immediately. If not, some disciplinary actions should be administered to the teacher, but then that might not be possible depending on the amount of influence the teachers union has.
Sorry, Stephanie-S . I didn't mean to go a rant about teachers and try to change the subject. I got a bit carried away.
