Lol, how do you think I think of her(especially after joining this forum and learning that 10th graders in Romania were more educated)?
On the up side, today was the LAST day I'll ever need to study from her.
On the down side, from what I've heard from seniors this year, the next teacher is no better. Apparently he knows his subject but will spend the whole year teaching plants....that's his whole curriculum plants with a dash of anatomy.
