I have read all the posts and agree with all of the comments. I, like all of you, realize this is her first year and I do take that fact into consideration. It's our first year too though and she expects certain things from us so we should expect things from her as well. We are all paying for this education and it's important that we understand it. It's her job to ensure that we do and whatever means she has to use to do that she should. If what she is doing isn't working, as a teacher she should explore other methods. Surely she can see and feel the frustration and lack of attention many of us show her. Most of the material we've covered so far seems really elementary and she seems to make it much more complicated than it needs to be or is. I guess we just tough it out and maybe it'll get better. Hopefully students are allowed to complete evaluations at the end of the course. Does anyone know about that?
