I've noticed this in my chem class recently. I'm pretty sure I know more about my teachers personal life than the subject chemistry. Because of this when it comes time for exams everyone does horrible ><

yup, that's how it's like in my U.S. History class. Everyone is either sleeping or talking about their lives (including the teacher). He's a really cool teacher though. Right before the test he gives us a review and then everyone ace the test.

lol YES. One is my English teacher. Everytime during class she told more about her personal life than the subject. About her family, family history, about her suing some people over land, and so on..

But now that the teacher changed, I really want to know how the lawsuit ended or is it still going on

In my Spanish II class, every other word that came out of my teacher's mouth was fiance, wedding, or Harriet, his soon to be step child. Oh, that was only when he wasn't talking about his job as a swim coach or the flipping Bronchos. Needless to say, I didn't learn much, other than the standard, "hola".

Yuppie, sophomore year history teacher. Then she was gone for 3 months and told us everything that happened during that time.

& now my AVID/Econ/Gov't teacher. Super nice but she gets sidetracked easily. We once spent the whole class period listening to her cat story. :o I seriously know her life, lmfao..considering that I have her for 2 classes as well.

LMAO omg I seriously thought I was the only one going through this... My macroeconomics professor last semester was EXACTLY like that! He'd bring in a diet coke every day and talk about how much he loves diet coke then talks about his wife, wife's family, cousin, neighbor, pizza, and the most random crap EVER! He will get back to economics during the last 20 minutes of class and even then he still manages to get off track (i.e. supply and demand of pizza, then he'll talk about how good the pizza is at Gino's down the block from his house image').

Man WTF is up with these teachers?? They weren't paid to teach about their personal life...

OMG lol Same here! ^^^

My MacroEconomics teacher for the past fall semester, has THE most long examples ever that relate to his life once in a while. One time he was explaining what intermediate goods mean then he used bakery's as an example. Soon after he starts talking about how much bread costs many years ago, and then it SOMEHOW leads to how dating was so complicated back when his great grandfather "court" his great grandmother in the Medieval Ages.

About a month ago I saw this macroeconomics teacher again on the public bus. He said hi to me and I started explaining how he would waste literally 80% of class time with his almost useless examples. Later on I found out I have him for microeconomics next semester. FML!

Yes, my math class.

He tells us he despises us and that we are raised with no honor or respect and stuff like that is unacceptable to his culture(Spanish).

Can't transfer out because my guidance counselor is a pinkberry.

Haha, yeah, probably my Geometry teacher awhile ago. He was a total jock!... what's worst is our class was also full of jocks. They would always talk about sports, his wife, and his childhood :mellow: Lols, gosh he was like 6 feet and so immature! The guy once threw my binder. I guess he wasn't a bad teacher though.

-LOLing- This is SO my Psych/Macro/Gov teacher. XD (Yes he teaches all those subjects~)

Granted, he usually is relating his life somehow to the subject at hand, sucessfully too. But I seriously can relay practically his entire life story from high school 'til now, I know so much about him. XP (especially because I have three classes with him!)

I have a calc/stat teacher who tends to go off on tangents sometimes... (a lot of times) but she usually always is able to teach everything we need to know, and all the stories she tells are so interesting. It makes calculus and statistics less boring lol.

My psychology teacher talks about his kids a lot.

When we did the unit about language he talks a lot about his kids

babbling and stuff.

Then, on the emotion unit, he talked about how he met his wife

and stuff. It was weird.

Ugh. My teacher for science in grade 9 & 10 =.=;

Grade 9 wasn't AS bad. But grade 10 was all about her and her boyfriend,

how she had such a tough childhood, how people always made racial comments towards her blah blah blah.

Then she went psycho and accused our whole class of being racist and refused to teach us o.o;

I had to learn everything for physics from the textbook v___v; surprised I passed that class.

I have nooo idea why she's still a teacher. So crazy.
