Hate My Teacher

by Lina

Original Text: Hate My Teacher


Stones-Chapter 3-5 Formative Assessment

The teacher that I would say I disliked the most would have to be my ninth grade English teacher. He is quite tall and somehow reminds me a little bit of Vince Vaughn. He’s in the age of around 50-60 years old, and I don’t think that he has ever been married. That might be the reason why he always looks cranky. Everybody in the class was scared of him. Honestly nobody wanted to get him on his evil side. It seemed like he had no facial emotions, whenever he was mad or happy, he would have the same expression on his face. Literally, you could never tell whether he was angry or happy.
I think the main reason why I dislike him was because he would always pick on me. I sat in the front row right beside him, where he always would stand. Even though I was an easy target, that shouldn’t give him a right to pick on someone little like me, right? One time in class we were just reading and all of a sudden he would stop the class and basically pick on me to summarize what we had just read. At first I thought, maybe he was just trying to test my knowledge that day. But eventually I realize he was just picking on me since he kept on asking me every day.
Another reason why I could say I dislike him is because I ended up with a bad mark on my report card and such a harsh comment included too. He used to be a professor at a university so he has high expectations. Many people say he marks very hard and let I must say, he does. As much as I tried so hard to achieve a high mark, it didn’t shine through. I understand I’m not that good in English but he didn’t have to put such a hasty comment on my report card where my parents would see it.
At the end of the semester I was so glad I past his class and I don’t think I would ever want him to be my teacher again! I think he is more suited to work at a university being a professor rather than teaching grade 9 and 12 English in high school.
