Peg BS: Bad teacher (56* d) RE: BS: Bad teacher 11 Sep 04

here's my question at this point--what is your source of information for this teacher's behavior? The student who feels victimized? Is there more than one student complaining about this teacher?

I can understand this student may indeed feel the teacher is "out to get him" but there does need to be some perspective applied when only one person is feeling victimized. I had one such student who thought I was treating him unfairly, (his behavior in the classroom was appalling BTW) who lodged a complaint and continued to send me harassing emails even when the department head concluded I wasn't doing anything inappropriate and that the student was grossly overreacting. The student ended up basically stalking me and refusing to leave my office when I told him to get out (I had to threaten to call security), and to this day continues to badmouth me to other students who later tell me (confused, because they think I am a good teacher)that this guy tried to get them to drop my classes etc.

Never underestimate what one person is capable of.
