mini rant, bear with me

dear physical science 100 TA lab,

thank you for making me feel stupid. i really appreciate it.

i am not a stupid person. i get good grades. i TA a 400 level class. so don't talk to me like i am an idiot. get off your 'TA pedestal' and do your job. when i outright tell you that i do not understand the concept, that means i need you to explain it to me! not belittle me. when my students ask me a question i do everything i can to explain it to them, without being condescending or rude.

get over yourself and just do what you get paid to do. you us?

your dumbest student

some ppl are not meant to teach because they're mean.

i'm thinking your TA is one of those ppl.

It is are pretty much the most amazing TA ever! Totally my favorite in all of my college days. :)

Seriously, why would the person be a TA if he ( or she ) is not even nice or like to explain stuff up? I have no teaching skill but even I know their desk job will require a lot of those.
