I had a creepy teacher like that in 7th grade. We always joked that he graded the girls based on their cup size. But, to be honest, I wouldn't be that surprised if it was partially true.Does anyone else here have some potentially perverted teachers? I know in our maths class because there's a very few of us, us girls sit in one corner and the teacher is sometimes just looking at us very weirdly. )':
Needless to say, we were all dismayed when he switched to teaching 8th grade our 8th grade year and then later moved up to the high school with us.
I knew a few idiots like this. I wish I could remember some of the things these people thought, but I did too good of a job blocking high school from my memory.It's not just Americans.
My french teacher from four years (Year 9, so 13-14 year olds) ago once derailed an entire lesson into geography so he could teach a particularly daft girl:
A) The difference between the UK, Great Britain, The British isles and England.
B) That yes, the UK is that island "shaped like a dinosaur"
C) No, China is not the capital of Japan
D) No, the language of Japan is not japanish.
I will remember that lesson for the rest of my life. Twas Comedy gold.
Though I remember my brother complaining that one of his teaches insisted Lake Michigan had shores in Canada. Sometimes, it's no wonder students are so ill-informed when people like that are teaching.
Sadly, I'm not surprised people can't name the continents. One teacher I had made us memorize all 50 states of the country, you wouldn't believe how many complaints went around about this. And we were in 9th grade, really not all that unreasonable to expect 14 year olds to know the states.What? How could you not be able to name the continents? The rectangle thing is pretty sad too.
