Good morning everyone! I’m new to knzk but have been on mastodon for a couple of months now. I love talking about teaching math, Judaism and Jewish texts, activism, politics, vegan food, feminism, my cute dog, and just generally chatting about life.
@codewytch honestly next semester I’m giving a tough as hell midterm in week 4 so they come to my office hours all semester lmao
All my students failed midterm one, so I gave them a tiered assignment to makeup their grade
C: correct each problem, explain why they were wrong and what is different now
B: C work, plus extra book problems
A: B & C work plus a one hour meeting with me in my office to discuss their work.
After every single A meeting the student is like “wow this is really helpful I should go to office hours more” and I’m like YES THAT IS THE IDEA AND POINT OF THIS ASSIGNMENT

when you work at a nuclear power plant and join the union and get into a position of power and start investigating and discovering the incredibly unsafe working conditions including getting contaminated with plutonium from just filing paperwork and having 400 times the legal plutonium contamination limit so you start investigating the company and writing a report and the company argues that you poisoned yourself on purpose to make the company look bad and you bring your report findings to the new york times but you crash your car on the way there and during the autopsy it is discovered that your papers aren't there (even though you brought them with you) and the autopsy finds that your blood contained high amounts of sedatives and also your name is karen silkwood and this actually fucking happened
Like this is why I darkly laugh when capitalists tell me about how many free loaders there are to break society - anyone doing something necessary for the working class is literally sacrificing longevity and quality of life to do it because capitalism forces us to and we want to help anyway. The freeloaders are the bosses stealing our wealth.
@codewytch I even have the skill set to be a useless do nothing capitalist parasite and then I decided to do something good with it instead so I’ll never have good dental and health care and I’ll die a lot younger
Teacher brag, self own Show more
Students from a class I subbed for once regularly come to ask me questions they’re too shy to ask their regular prof. This means I’m a great teacher, but also I get paid much less than their regular prof 😂😂
Critical musing about our political & social future: climate disaster, privacy, money Show more
On public transit thinking about us wearing masks because we have no air. And how in many places it's illegal to cover your face in public or at protests. And how there's going to be a clusterfuck of priorities and interests if we don't stop techno capitalist fascist anti-environmentalist hell-lords. This is extremely miserable and anxiety provoking on a physical level.
