Who was your favorite teacher? Your least favorite?
Pretty self-explanatory, I think. Any teacher from any grade, from any point through in your education.
So far, my favorite teacher has to be Mr. Sivitz. He was my eighth grade Civics teacher, and his class was absolutely awesome. Not only was the subject interesting, but Sivitz taught it like a champ. Aside from being a cool teacher, he was also a cool guy in general; he had the same weird sense of humor and personality that a lot of us did. He crammed a ton of references into his lessons, ranging from They Might Be Giants, to Star Wars, to old movies, and we picked up on almost all of them. Also, he was the most kick-ass chaperon for our field trip to Washington D.C. that year.
As for my least favorite teacher, I would have to say it was Ms. Weet, in seventh and eight grade. I was lucky enough to have her teach two math courses I was in that year. She was new at the time, and I didn’t like her teaching very much. It didn’t help that I became incredibly bored with math around this time, sure, but what set me over the edge was the time she initially refused to allow me a second chance at turning in a study guide because I lost my binder. I maintain that it was stolen, but she gave in later anyways. Also, in middle school, there was a “three strikes yer out” policy on homework, and detention was the penalty. In the third quarter of that year, I had missed three assignments, and she found this out pretty well into the fourth quarter. She decided to give me a detention anyways, which infuriated me to no end..
