Sigh…I graduated from high school and went on to a private college. Sigh…I graduated from college with honors and was accepted into medical school 2 years ago…sigh.

I have a long way to go and I am still encountering teachers/professors/lecturers/doctors/PhD’s/etc. who: 1. don’t know the material they are teaching. 2. don’t know how to teach the material. 3. are plain old everyday dumb. 4. are hateful. 5. act like they want you to fail because they are jealous.

I guess life is just one huge hurdle of unpleasant people. Spending time learning to deal with them, though, is taking time from what I am paying to learn.

How do some people get through school and go on to teach when they never learned a blooming thing and have no idea what they are doing?

Math Teach They go on to teach because "teacher shortages" are created, and fools (Administrators) believe it.
