"We are all worms. But I do believe I am a glow-worm."
As an English major and a writer (and almost a teacher at one point) this ticks me off beyond words. My son's junior high English teacher is a grumpy old woman who should retire already and stop poisoning kids against literature.A teacher can make or break any subject. I haven't figured out why English teachers are particularly good at making kids hate English and books. ARGH!If only everyone could have a Miss Drummond in their life. (Best English teacher I ever had.)
I am raging about work as well, but I think it is less intellegent than your raging.
I know! I resent one of my Lit professors to this day for her slaughter of 1984. I saw the deadened look in my classmates' eyes during discussions and I wanted to scream, "No! Don't you understand? This is a landmark work! It's his masterpiece. Don't listen to that crazy woman!" I think poor teaching should be a prison-punishable offense.
what book was it????i love reading and i love books. i hate when this happens to my favorite novels.
What is the book she butchered? I'm dying to know!
