An Arrogant Student’s Meow And Tested My Patience Today
July 24, 2016 3:56am CST
I am sure some of you knows that I am teaching online. As of this day, I am just doing my usual routine in teaching. The initial encounter wasn’t really nice. The student seems so angry as she talks to me. I remained calm and waited for her to adjust during the class. My patience meter is fluctuating while I am having a conversation with her. My face flushed in the entire session. There is a time that she talked fast and you cannot understand the pronunciation of the words. It sounds like slurring speech while reading the passages and even expert teachers can’t bear to listen to cat’s tone of voice. Along the class session, she showed her true colors and uttered ruthless statements towards me. Well, I just ignored her in the entire period of class. I didn’t hold myself back in giving her my feedback. She sounds in denial and continued to defend herself. The most striking thing that pierced her inner ear is this, “You don’t need to study, if you don’t need it.” “I am here to teach and need to be respected”. I can’t paint her face after everything had been said and smiled to her like what a mischievous cat do. Take note a cat with good breeding that she doesn’t have. Photo Credit: pixabay.com

@ridingbet You said it right. Actually, I was thinking that this is an admin. They are having QA with their teachers. If in this kind of situation, they are still unprofessional. Actually, it wasn't a kid. She is working in a company. I am starting to have a second thought in this company lately.

People can be very different. Some children are rude. Their parents are rich and they think they handle everything by money. Actually their children are almost out of control. They don't mind paying a lot of money for them and hope their study can be better. But this situation will just get worse because their children don't want to study and they are spoiled. Sometimes we can't just blame these children because actually their parents are the same.

It is just 25 minutes. But I felt it is too long to bear.lol If I can just shout at her, I will. I am sorry for the statement. The student is so rude. Actually, there are so many mispronounced words and sentence constructions are out of this world.

I guess I am, my dear friend. That situation cannot be solved in my part. Since students judge teachers very subjective and the company doesn't mind if the teachers are being evaluated in a low score. Regardless, I just take it easy.
