Until I read my course evaluations today. (They're anonymous, unless the student has extremely loopy, girly handwriting) Hers was the most cruel of the bunch, claiming I was the worst professor she had ever had and that the university should be ashamed for hiring me. I'm so confused. I take poor evaluations way too seriously and personally anyways (because I'm a relatively new proffie and haven't thickened my skin properly yet), but this one especially hurt because it was so vicious but came from a student who had seemed, well, not like she hated me.
Q: Have you ever had a student turn on you like that? Have they ever seemed like they were on your side, only to trash you? Or, have they been monstrous in class and then sang your praises?
