Okay, so, my school generally sucks at everything, especially hiring teachers, and, oh boy, the French teacher! She is known for being intolerable by EVERYONE.
My school is fairly diverse for being in the middle of nowhere (we have racial diversity, lgbt+ kids, multiple religions, etc). Also worth noting, I live in the US.
The French teacher–I’ll call her Prof. B., okay?–was from Portugal and claimed to be fluent in seven different languages. She also claimed to have lived in the US on and off since the age of 16, but spoke so broken that you couldn’t tell what she was saying and didn’t know how to say most English words, as well as speaking like a textbook.
Prof. B. is also sexist, saying that a woman can’t be an authority figure unless we want the world to fall, homophobic, saying that same-sex marriage is equal to marrying cattle, transphobic, saying that a chair (or whatever) can’t be masculine no matter how hard it tried whilst staring directly at me (a nonbinary individual), and once said, “my notes are so easy that even the re***** downstairs could learn it!” Below her classroom is the Special Education classroom.
Prof. B. also neglected teaching us, turning on French baby songs and sitcoms and being mad if we claimed not to understand. She never gave rubrics for projects, didn’t give due dates, but did not accept late work.
And when I complained to the office (with exact quotes and dates, with witnesses) they said, “well, she has a right to her opinions. she’s been teaching here for 20 years, so she can’t be that bad…”
