Dear Clever Sally - Sarcastic Math Teacher

Dear Education Lady,

My math teacher keeps making sarcastic comments towards me. How should I deal with this?

She asked everyone if they understood then singled me out and said “Sally, do you get it? Because you’re so clever.”

Dear Clever Sally,

It’s funny how sometimes adults can be more childish than children, right? First, you’re doing the right thing in asking and hopefully, not reacting. You may have heard the saying “Fuel fuels the fire.”

My Very First Tutoring Job Was In My Worst Subject Area... A Subject I Had *Gasp* Failed!

My Very First Tutoring Job Was In My Worst Subject Area... A Subject I Had *Gasp* Failed!

My first paid tutoring session was in my most dreaded subject...math.

And I was scared to death.

See, I had failed math my entire life AND was about to get paid to teach a high school student my worst possible subject.

I wasn't a math teacher.

I was barely a certified English teacher.

I hadn't gone to school to be a teacher and certainly didn't have any educational degrees that really qualified me to teach.
