Some of you know once I got my equine science from Guelph I decided to go back to a local college called St.Clair. I want to upgrade to so something with veterinary medicine. A vet tech or lab technician looks good right about now.
I am very pleased. As with Guelph my marks are in the upper 90's. I work hard. Today my mark in chemistry went from that I explained to probably around a 70 or so. Why? Well I am a little fed up with the teaching system, the head of department and the dean!
No one in my entire chemistry class understands what the teacher is trying to explain. It is his first class he ever taught, fresh out of teachers college. He has some sort of masters in electrical engineering. He is a smart guy, but not a teacher. I can say through my whole school career I have never had a teacher as bad as him. He cannot explain anything. He lectures us, we write everything. If we need something explained better usually we would go to the text book. We can't. Everything he writes on those white board is the EXACT SAME THING out of the text!
Anyway my whole point. A few of us went and complained yesterday to the head of department after talking to the teacher about an upcoming test. Not one person in that class understood what he was trying to teach. This is class 5 we have been on the same topic. No one gets it. I have even taken chemistry before and I dont remember doing this. My friend who is becoming a nuclear physicist doesn't have to know this. One girl in the class told him she didn't want the test beacause she was not prepared and was going to fail. His reply? " So what?". So I went to the dean because the department head's just told us off, telling us we pretty much were stupid.
The dean? Didn't even want to think about our request to submit a complaint. This is bullcrap!
I am so disappointed in this areas education system. I am surprised there are not more homeless or bums in this city because the education system here is really that bad. I didn't think so until my deal today.
I was so mad after my test I went right home and figured I would get the stuff from my friend tomorrow.
I think I have some sort of horrid flu. I have a sudden cough and a headache and chills and aches.
My remedy? I went out, good clothes in all skipping the house to the barn to see my horses. I was freezing. The thing I love about cold nights like this is standing in the dark in the barnyard with my horse (Indigo in particular because of her mane) and putting my hands under her long, thick mane and letting them warm. I love the feeling of scratching her winter coat on her neck. It's so soft almost like someone doused her in show sheen and my fingers warm almost instantly. She seems to enjoy it too as she puts her chin on my shoulder and breathes in my ear for a moment before attempting to lick my good jacket.
So rant over, heres it for today: if you are feeling down hug a horse.
