i hate when teachers are like “sorry if im grumpy ive had a class each period haha” like ????? what do you think students do?????
yes, but you as a student just have to deal with the teacher and the fact that some of your classmates are idiots.
Your teacher has to deal with the fact that some of your classmates aren’t going to respect them, and they have some god awful classes. I TA’d for one of the English teachers at my high school my senior year, and she was always so drained after one of her classes because it was all the kids that had failed freshman english a few times. They didn’t respect her, they didn’t do their homework, and they were obnoxious. She was almost in tears after class on more than one occasion and refused to teach that class ever again because of it.
So you can bitch all you want about “wahhhhhhh what the fuck do you think we do” but consider the fact that this teacher puts more time and work into your homework total than you do. I had, at most, 3 hours of homework in high school, and that’s counting AP classes. My classes had about 30 kids in each, I went to a large high school. So you figure a teacher has 5 classes a day out of the 7 periods each, 2 prep periods, 1 generally spent doing study hall, lunch duty, etc. multiply 5 by 30 and you get 150. So if that teacher collects homework from all his or her classes, then that’s 150 assignments to grade. And if it’s something like an English teacher, then that’s 150 PAPERS to read, annotate, and grade.
I get annoyed when I see all this stuff about “teachers don’t know what we go through”. No. Fuck you. Because they work even harder than you do to make sure you get an education. I’m so sick of seeing people complain about having to do schoolwork.
This is different if you have extenuating circumstances, like class or race affecting how you’re seen and placed in school, but I’d say the large majority of people complaining about this on Tumblr are pretty privileged. You get an education for free from people who work their asses off to ensure that you get the best education you can. I knew very few shitty teachers in high school; others thought they were shitty because they assigned a lot of homework or didn’t have a lot of patience for disruptions, but seriously, most of my teachers, all they wanted to do was see us learn and be successful in the future.
School is about preparing yourself for the real world. if you’re going to complain about homework, just wait until you have an actual job. Your boss is most likely at one time or another going to give you something you don’t want to do, and guess what? You have to do it, because it’s your job.
tl;dr stop bitching about teachers.
do you ever feel like there’s just so many pretty girls but most dudes are just subpar like there are radiant goddesses everywhere and just piles and piles of guys in backwards baseball caps and sandals
it’s called makeup
you can put eyeliner on a frat boy that doesn’t change the fact that’s he’s wearing a neon muscle shirt and nike flip flops
look if you unironically say ‘money can’t buy happiness’ then either you’ve never faced a real financial struggle or you’ve achieved enlightenment, because goddamn does financial security feel an awful lot like happiness when it’s something you’re not used to
