Teachers At School

I was going to write this post a long time ago, but now that my first month certificate has come out - 94%, thanks to god - I thought it was a good idea to type this post up today.

Anyway, I won't include any names or pictures, for - err - safety reasons. I don't want to wake up tomorrow with a bounty on top of my head. No, not the chocolate.. anyway, lets start.

Maths Teacher - Super Teacher

I wrote a post about this guy some time ago, but I'd like to talk about him again, just in case you didn't read that post. Anyway, to make a long story short, this guy knows everything, but he keeps bragging to make the thing worse.

To give a few examples on his "godly powers", he knows every subject to ever be sent to earth - Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Arabic, and of course Math. He tells us of his great defeats of exams to challenge him, how he got 197/200 in Math Tawjihi, how he got 99% in Religion, and a few more.

Not only will he stop at that, but his miracles extend to reach gymnastics - splitting more than 180 degrees or standing on his head for a very long time, music - he once played us a song on a classmates guitar in front of us, and even his family - he claims his father was the principle of his school.

Biology Teacher - Hitler

You know when teachers come into a boys school for the first time, they either try to settle things down or get taken down really easily and lose control. And when the teacher is a woman, you'd expect nothing less than no control. But this was not the case.

This teacher would come into the class with a large frown on her face and a rather loud voice. Anyone who would dare open their mouth to interrupt the lesson would probably be shot dead and their body burnt. This was were the nickname Hitler came from.

She got everything going and her lessons still run smoothly now, maybe with not much of the fear of being randomly fired at compared to the beginning of the term. But some things didn't change, like the difficulty and quantity of her exams or her marks.

Chemistry Teacher - Ammonia

Fresh to school this year, this teacher really turns out to think we're still his college students he used to teach before coming to school. He explains everything, uses every term in the book and gives too much examples, that it all backfires and you end up looking like a stunned mullet in his class.

'With respect to' and 'beyond your scope' are just some of the rather peculiar phrases he uses, all along with a strange accent that is a mix between British, Jordanian, American, maybe a bit of Klingon as well. For some reason, he loves giving us big fat photocopied handouts, 30 pages or so, after we finish the subject, all in his very 'clear' handwriting.

All in all, I wish this guy luck. I doubt he'll make it past his first year here. No one does anyway.

And thats all I can manage for a post. It'd be too big anyway if I continued. I'll finish off the list of teachers in the next post, some other time. Hopefully...


  1. with respect to ammonia,i would like to state that superteacher knows how to teach math against all the odds and hitler is much better than last year where biology was a nightmare. bio is still a nightmare this year, but not as scary as the one last year. and what i think of ammonia is just beyond your scope

  2. is miss Reem Hamdan your bio teacher?
