-Punish you when they lose hw assignments
-Assign hw/projects then save have a nice break
-Cram every single assignment at the end of the year creating a never ending vortex of stress that'll take weeks to recover from

    -Give a rubric the day before projects are due
    -Punish the whole class for one person's misbehavior
    -Not use Google Chrome
    -Not actually help raise a B+ to an A (even though they say they will)
    -Teach really slowly then get really fast when the year's about to end

    -Lose your papers and then mark them as a 0 in the grade book even though it's their fault. Urgh.

    - Take off points for stupid reasons like "your writing was too small."
    - Make us memorize formulas and take off points for not using them on tests even though the problem can easily be solved without a formula (i.e. percent = part/whole type formulas).
    - Make everyone uncomfortable by ranting about how they don't like being a teacher.

    - Hand back tests so you can see your grade and then make you give them back so they can keep them forever. (It doesn't really bother me but I don't understand it.)

    -Complain about the amount of work they have to grade (Hey, at least you're not the one who actually has to do your stupid assignments).

    -Never respond to e-mails
