Every person is a different type of learner. That’s one of the things teachers need to consider. When there’s a mismatch, it negatively impacts student-teacher relationship. In this video, one student could not take it anymore and wanted to get his teacher’s attention about how the latter’s style of teaching is simply ‘not fit’ for him.
The video that seemed to have been recorded by one of the students in class, started with one male student standing up to get his point across. “If you would just get up and teach them instead of just handing them a freakin’ packet. These kids in here don’t learn like that. They need to learn face to face. You’re just getting mad because I’m pointing out the obvious.”
The teacher responded, ‘No, you’re just wasting my time’ while also trying to interrupt the student by saying ‘bye’ while the latter was doing the sermon.
The student then said, “No, I’m not wasting your time. I’m telling you what you need to do. Do you want these kids to come in to your class, get excited for this, you got to come in here, you got to make them excited. You want the kids to change and start doing better, you got to touch his freakin’ heart. You can’t expect the kid to change if all you do is just tell them. You got to take this job seriously. This is the future of this nation. And when you come in here, like you did last time, make a statement ‘oh this is my paycheck’, indeed it is. But this is my country’s future and my education.”
