Things to Remember About Me.

On my teaching evaluation forms, which I read today, one student wrote that I was conceptually brilliant.

Y'bastard. No student has ever written anything nearly that complimentary on my evaluation forms.

it is, strangely, not the first time i've been called brilliant on an evaluation form. it's a strange experience, but very nice.

(of course, i've also been told i'm totally unstructured.)

Maybe the student means you're brilliant as a concept. Perhaps said student thinks he or she was just hallucinating you the whole time.

Maybe they were trying to express an honest opinion? I'm sure conceptually brilliant was meant to be positive, whatever it means : )
Funny how those evaluations tend to be contradictory. I got told I was too opinionated AND that I needed to be more feisty! Which one is it people?

oh, yeah, it was meant to be a positive comment, and that's why i put it up here. it's just those word nazi people (writers, for the most) are picking on it. but i dug it and understood. all part of my brilliance, don'tcha know?

;)

i don't get many negative comments, but the ones i get say i should be nicer, or more structured. maybe one or two every session.
