There are teachers whom you remember but in the WORST way. Teachers are supposed to guide students, build up their self-esteem and self-worth- making them believe that they are the best possible persons, and to help them value and appreciate learning. Yes, there ARE teachers like that who see teaching as more than a job and students more than charges. They are passionate about teaching and education. However, the subject at hand is not about caring and involved teachers but teachers from the lowest rungs of purgatory to the lowest rungs of hell.
These are the teachers who believe that teaching is akin to military practice. These are the teachers who really are not in love with the students they teach. They view teaching from being a mere existence, a mere endurance to a total chore. These are the teachers who have NO PATIENCE if a students makes a mistake or cannot quickly grasp a subject. God help the poor student who was not an apt student in accordance to this teacher. This student oftentimes receive stern correction whose sole purpose was to lessen, even destroy his/her self-worth and eventual love of learning.
This is the teacher who treat the students quite unequally, based upon likes and dislikes. This teacher has his/her pets whom everything the latter do are ALWAYS RIGHT while the outcasts NEVER does anything right but are blamed for the slightest offense. You may be a target of this teacher because he/she had a particular dislike/animus, even hatred of you for no discernible reason. If YOU had bad teachers, relate your experience and how this impacted on you as an adult.
I wrote a hub about it called "Mrs. Green." Although Mrs. Stone was the "evil" one. lol

What are teachers doing? Why are parents looking for private tuition for their kids?The exponential growth of tuition sales and expenditure makes it patently obvious that parents respect private tutors more than teachers.
