Teaching is not for the faint of heart. Students can be quite disrespectful and often complain about things that a teacher has little control over. I had someone complain to me today that I can’t expect more of him because he is a more advanced student and that to grade him according to his abilities is unfair. I don’t see how students can expect to improve if I don’t continue to raise the bar. It perplexes me as to how I should handle his grading from now on. I think that everyone does not have the same skill set and to grade each student as an individual is not only fair, but necessary.
If you can’t stand the heat…get out of the graphics industry.
