But Can He Teach?

The job candidate groaned like Prometheus having his liver pecked out by the eagle. Then the committee asked the prospective teacher questions like...

Q. What do you like most about teaching?

A. Student turnover. They leave at the end of the semester.

Q. How do you handle unprepared students?

A. I read the material to them.

Q. What was your hardest moment in teaching, and how did you handle it?

A. I had a student who talked too much and was rude and confrontational, so I let him teach the next class.

Q. How do you grade poor grammar in English papers?

A. Oh, I don't count that kind of stuff.
