Annoying Task For Teacher

by | May 25, 2013 | Essays | 2 comments

So I have this question:

What is the most annoying, repetitive, time consuming, or ineffective task to be done for a teacher, lecturer, instructor, or educator?

Based on my experience, my answer would be grading assassment or homework. I’m curious to know your answer to this question. Please share your answer / experience here 🙂

    I can only say, it’s true, very true. I enjoy teaching and interacting, but I dread checking and marking students’ work. It’s tedious. Sometimes I find interesting stuff though. And it’s something all teachers have to do.

      This is a very precious insight given from a lecturer himself. Thanks for sharing your experience, Sir.

      Anyway, I’m curious to know more if this doesn’t bother you: is this annoyance annoys you so much so if there’s a system that could help you handling this pain point (making the process of marking students’ work more efficient, or even eliminating it), you’d want to pay monthly fee for it?
