A few times a year, usually when I'm raelly bored on a weekend night after I've been stood up by someone (ahem), I like to check out my ratings at ratemyteacher.com. I've now got seven ratings over five years. My average rating is 3.8. The three numbers after the date are on a 1-5 scale of "easiness", "helpfulness", and "clarity."
Grrr. I hate it when kids say I lose their papers. I've never lost a paper in my life. That's the truth. On occasion, they're at the bottom of another stack or in another class' stack, but I've never actually lost one.
