The teachers that do take their classes seriously go into amazing depth on their lessons, using real world examples, and simplify their examples if needed for struggling students. Most of these teachers are the extra-curricular and at Franklin County those are the classes with the least amount of funds. But they have money to pay new coaches and such for our athletics. My drawing teacher is remarkable in her teaching styles because not only is she visual but for the people who are verbal learners she teaches amazing in depth lectures about each of our projects. She gives us full access to online sources to help with our ideas and supports every student. She also uses vocabulary that she was taught in her art classes in college. Other teachers I have had in the past grade on random she calls it class participation but if you voice your opinion on a subject related topic she takes off points if she doesn't agree. I had a Geometry teacher and everyone who has had her in the past has failed their SOLs. She was never available for one on one teaching. She didn't care about students as individuals, her grading was never done on time slots but at random. I have never failed an SOL. She didnt have a teaching style and most of the time didn't understand what she was talking about. She would explain a method one way then go back and look at her notes and make us rewrite everything (On more than one occasion). Most teachers in the math department students agree that they do not know how to prepare us for these tests. At Franklin County a few students and I tried to stand up for ourselves and go to administration only to be pushed out. This high school looks at their students as numbers and treats us the same. We have no funding but for the athletes, the people on top are all cheerleaders mothers and fans of sports. People with money are treated better at this school.
