By two o’clock this afternoon I managed to experience both the best and the worst of student feedback.
Unfortunately the Negative Extreme chose to share those opinions publically in front of a group of students by airing a discussion we’d had via email and appending the personal opinion of “You’re a controlling bitch who’s ruining my GPA!”
Fortunately the Positive Extreme, while shared privately, came from two different students in two different classes.
Tears were involved in two of the three cases, on both ends of the spectrum. None of mine.
I’m home now, taking a few hours of private time to have my own feelings on the matter.
Then I will go back to work this evening for something I am not getting paid to do but the university encourages as “service.”
“You’re a controlling bitch who’s ruining my GPA!”
This person is going to have a rough life, and will probably be using that phrase, with GPA changed to “life”, with every boss in their future. Just a guess. ;)
