What the hell.
 
Today was the last day of school. Supposed to be the most non-stressful and memorable day of the school year, right? Well, mine wasn't. To start off, we were told we were going to be doing things inside all day with our friends, but they decided to make us stay outside in hot and humid weather. When we had lunch, the food was stale and we had very little time to eat. We were originally told that we were going to have ice cream and things like that, but I guess not.

But the grueling day outside is incredibly minor compared to this next thing.

Through the whole year, my English & reading teacher has been a pain in my ass. She's so incredibly bad at teaching it's laughable. When she talks to you, in casual of formal conversation, she will try to use as many complicated words as she can in order to make herself sound smarter. As if her awful teaching wasn't bad enough, she is terrible about putting in grades. If you take a test, it could be a week or more until you finally get a grade on it, and another week until you get it handed back. When we got our report cards for the middle of the semester, I had a D and an F in her classes. Why? There were about 2 assignments in both English and Reading. One was a test we were supposed to get a perfect grade on because it was a "participation grade", which brought me down a few letter grades considering I got an 11/25. Topping that, she uses "I'm a single mom with 3 kids going to college again to get my Doctoral Degree" as an excuse for about everything. We also get to hear how fabulous her kids are, her Sophomore daughter that gets straight A's and her two sons who play sports and are perfect little angels.

Don't think that's all. She's incredibly irresponsible, she is always late to school and is constantly losing assignments. But no, it's not her fault if she loses anything, it's yours. And it's not her fault she was 2 hours late to school, it was her kids'. There's a ton of things on top of that, but I won't make this a huge wall of text. The one thing that happened today is more stressful and incredibly dumb than everything else, though.

Like I said, today was the last day of school. I happen to find teacher outside and she takes me inside to talk about my Research Paper I needed done. The previous week I had been out for 3 days with Pink Eye, and right when I got back we had an all-day field trip, so I had not been able to turn in my rough draft until Friday. She decides to be an incredible ass and, instead of just accepting the damned rough draft as my final one, insists that I do a final one instead. Okay, whatever. We had a 3 day weekend that I could get it done on. So I tell her that she could give me revisions on it and give it back to me at the end of the period. Guess what? She didn't give it back at the end of the period. I didn't realize this until after I got home, on account of we had lunch and graduation practice right after. So when she came inside, I was hoping that she would just give me the revisions I needed to do and my final draft to turn in tomorrow. Wrong. What happened?

SHE LOST IT.


We had a folder to keep all of our things in. Our research, our paper, everything. She goes and loses it. She looks through her whole room and tries to find it, and can't find it. What could make this worse? "Well you must've not given it to me, because there is no way that I have misplaced it or put it somewhere else."

What.

Of course there's a goddamned chance you misplaced it, you have been doing it through the whole year.

After a long discussion of how it's not her fault, I now have to send the rough draft to her by email, she sends me what I need to do, and I send her a final draft. All while I'm supposed to be enjoying the release from school and all of it's stress.

Although, there is something worse about this.

The highest grade I can get is a ****ing B. And that's if everything is perfect.

Why? Well, she lost my whole damned folder containing all of my notes and research, which is about 20 points of the grade. So there's a very slim chance of me passing the class, factoring in that she probably only has 3 other grades in for me, which I most likely did awful on.

I'll end this here, maybe I'll add more later.

tl;dr: Last day of school sucked :py17:

That sucks. School is now over for you though so, who cares? Forget about it, and enjoy your summer knowing you will never be with that teacher again.

SilentSaber 05-26-2009 09:37 PM

I bet she has tenure, too. ugh. Public schools do that. I had this kind of teacher too, though it was for middle school, so it didn't matter as much. First words: "I'm just here so I can put it on my resume." It all went downhill from there. Good luck on your paper.

on a side note, I'd say, if your parents are willing to phone in to excuse you from the last day of school, not going to the last day of school is actually the best last day of school.

This was my last year in Middle School. `-` So yeah, it doesn't really matter much in terms of my future, but it's still a pain to deal with a person like this at any time in your life. You know they're wrong, but you can't say anything about it because they have the authority.

I would've just not come in, but I didn't think that all of this would happen on the last day(obviously).

Call in an angry parent (or five) to file a complaint about her directly to the school board.

Milano 05-26-2009 10:16 PM

File complaint, and be grateful that the end of the year as come at last. The bad day is finally over. =D

SlowBro 05-26-2009 10:23 PM

My sister had an irresponsible teacher like that before and got her fired lolol

Totally aside, you sound older than middle school '-'

Slaves 05-26-2009 11:14 PM

My parents are going to try to do something about it tomorrow, and we're hoping she has enough sense to just give in to an angry parent and give me the points.

I never knew Slaves was that young :v

slushies 05-26-2009 11:25 PM

Oh? He was in middle school?
He speaks much more sophisticated than me... then again I'm not very bright. :P
Sucks that he had a year with a teacher who probably wasn't as intelligent as him...

iARE1337 05-26-2009 11:38 PM

Cheer up! Schools always give into angry parents. I've seen this firsthand.

JustinBieber 05-28-2009 02:45 PM

be glad that you don't have your last two weeks from tomorrow.

Tardar 05-28-2009 03:46 PM

Be glad your done. I have... 'till June 21. And then Graduation... >W> It feels like an entire day listening to all those names listed, especially when there's no diploma at the end, and you're in the band.

SilentSaber 05-28-2009 04:25 PM

I doubt your graduation will be as long as mine... 5 people reading names, still took 4 hours. ugh.

I really hate graduation, when I have to play in the band. There's nothing to do. QQ
Well, unless you're smart to hide your DS or PSP in your band folder while you bring it out or something.

Late update, don't know why I didn't get to posting this earlier:

My mom called her on Wednesday, and she broke down and admitted that it's possible she misplaced it. So now I can get all the credit I deserve, yippee.

But it still makes me mad that she didn't admit that from the beginning. Oh well.
