Both of my parents were teachers, so I learned how to learn from teachers. The teachers at my school were pretty horrendous. I remember writing a paper in 6th grade English. My dad proofread my paper and corrected my spelling of "wierd" to weird. I handed in my paper. The teacher "corrected" the spelling back to "wierd" and wrote "i before e" in the margin. Gee, thanks. Like any profession, there are competent teachers. And then there are the vast majority that shouldn't be in a classroom. Given what teacher salaries are, I wonder why our best and brightest students don't go into teaching.
