You know the one…they think they are god’s gift to teaching. that they know everything and you know nothing. They are the last to arrive and the first to leave because they think everything being told to them is “a waste of their time”. They’re the ones that you avoid like the plague yet you inevitably get stuck having to not only work with them, but plan a classroom with them. Much to their uncooperation. They refuse to work with you, insisting on doing their own thing and leaving you to polish (or rather sand down and start all over again) what they’ve done and then add youre own bit. They make accusations that borderline on psychosis, like saying how they percieve everything you say, the same way a sexually harrassed woman would take comments from a misogynst predator. They try to control every movement of their students, from how they ask questions and constantly correct them without letting the students correct themselves, to making the students move down the hallway with their hands over their mouths to keep from talking. That some children cry and ask their parents to not make them go to this person’s class because the material is pitched way over their heads and their being passed off as having the intelligence of a 1-year-old because it’s too hard. This person isn’t outwardly mean: just cold, standoffish, combative, and arrogant. What if you had access to the schools they are trying to apply to in Taiwan? What would you do?
