Describe the worst teacher you ever had.
Well, I went to Truckee High School – and as much as I had a considerably hard time with the whole experience – and ended up dropping out – all the teachers there were actually pretty damn good. Hindsight is 20/20, I guess.
But you can take a look at the THS alumni, and we are a pretty spiffy group these days, all rather accomplished… in our own special ways. Also, now that my little sis is attending, I can see that the curriculum had remained pretty decent.
She is going to be a senior next year, at the ripe old age of 15. Perhaps all of my bitching and moaning helped inspire the administration to create a quick way out for brainiacs and temperamental Kirby’s?
All in all, I have nothing but love for anyone teaching at a public school (unless they are abusive or otherwise deviantly defective…) the work can be pretty thankless, and the pay is shit, but they keep on keepin’ on, teaching kids to be self-sufficient and at least marginally responsible!
