Teachers at Oregon City High School often do not care about their students in the way that students need. Personally, I can count on one hand (or half a hand, really) the teachers that I really cherished; the ones that really helped me succeed in my learning. And on the other hand, and both of my feet, and a big board full of tallies, I can count the amount of teachers that I absolutely detested. And for so many reasons! Unbelievably bad teaching methods, inability (or unwillingness) to connect with students, explosive tantrums, inconsistent grading, and inability to effectively communicate a simple concept. So many of my teachers would let the class get out of control and then blow up at us, multiple times in a class period. I usually leave my classes thinking,"Man, I could have taught that better, even if I were having an off day, or if I were on fire."
