I handed back exams in Theology 2001 today. SOme were excellent, some were awful. It is always hard for me to hand back the awful ones. It makes me feel guilty. Part of this is because I was so driven as a student that such bad grades would have crushed me. Part of this is because if students do poorly it reflects negatively on me as a teacher. I wish I could motivate ALL my students to put the time in for test. I used to have a few teachers who really motivated me to do well. Anyway, the days I hand back tests always suck.
