In class we were assigned to read an article about a teacher and identify the improper practices she was using in her classroom. This teacher was making her 6th grade students memorize the Emancipation Proclamation, and if they missed or added one word they failed the assignment. As I was finished reading I said aloud to myself, "She's an idiot", in regards to this teacher. I said this at the very same time a girl in my class finished asking the professor how long the Emancipation Proclamation was.
Everyone heard me.
I'm now the girl that calls other classmates idiots.
No one asks questions in that class anymore.
My future as an educator is looking promising.
