“Rate My Professor” Gold

One college student’s opinion about one professor.

“Passionate about her work but poor people skills. Interrupts students and even fellow faculty while speaking. Often ignores or invalidates comments even when requested. Seemingly judges based on appearance and admittedly judges based in writing skill. Unsympathetic to life circumstances, not a teacher willing to work with you. Good yoga instructor.”

LOVE that pivot at the end, but maybe shoulda started with that.

A Tough News Week Gets Tougher

With nary a single “chili pepper” signifying hotness on my personal RateMyProfessor.com page, my academic career remains incomplete.

And now this announcement. No More Chili Pepper: RateMyProfessors Ditches ‘Hotness” Ratings. Something about high levels of sexual harassment of women in the sciences and technology.

I was certain this was the year. Or next. Or for sure, the one after that. Now the window doesn’t close, it slams shut, never to open.

I will come to grips with my fate. Someday. Maybe.
