When i was in high school or university, there are two teachers i didn't like, one of them had bad voice, lesson of the other made me feel so sleepy, Gradually, i am not interested in these two classes. You don't like a teacher, does he affect your interest to this course?

When I was a little girl when every other kid dreamed about being a doctor, lawyer, nurse, fire fighter, etc. I wanted to be a meteorologist. I was fascinated about weather and read all the books I could about the subject. And then when I reached my sophmore year in highschool I had my physical science class. And once I found out I was going to be learning about weather I was soo excited! Well the teacher was a nice guy.. but he had no teaching skills. We had an outdated book, plus his notes were very hard to understand. So I felt incredibly lost and confused about the subject. By the end of the class I had failed. And I had lost most of my desire to learn about the weather. So yeah, if a teacher is a bad teacher then it can easily be the end of an interest in a certain course.

No. For me when I was still a student, if I dont like the teacher's face or way of teaching I often cut or absent myself from my classes. But I do review his or her lessons well, doubling my effort because of fear to fail.

For me, definitely. I was not interested in math any more since my middle school times because I met the teacher I didn't like.

Yes, it can affect your interest in the course. I have had interesting subjects that have been killed by the "efforts" of the teacher. The fact remains, I feel that I could get much more out of the course if that teacher had not been there. It just seems like another handicap and one that is that I like to avoid having to deal with. Thankfully most of my teachers have been good but those who were not, boy do they stick out in my memories.

Worse is when the subject itself is uninteresting for me, and then the teacher just makes it even more boring. History is my least favorite subject because of detail overload.During elementary and my first years in high school, our History teachers just repeated what was written on the books. They didn't do anything to spice up the discussion. Our fourth year was different, though. The teacher was really upbeat, he knew what he was teaching, and he had really loud voice that would keep you awake, but he was WAY too mean to his students. He would always make things that are out of the way, just because he was mad at us. Like one time, he got in the room with all of us chattering (which shouldn't have surprised him anymore), he got really upset that he conducted a surprise quiz. He would read the questions really quick that we didn't even have time to think and write the answers, and then he suddenly made us to submit our papers. As a result, most of our papers were blank, and it was all because of his immaturity. He was a "terror teacher", and I always got tense and nervous every time he would come in. We always hoped that he was absent, hahaha..
