I am at my wits end! I all for constructive critisim and negative feedback. But all this woman says is negative. She makes a point to give lengthy feedback. Nothing is ever good enough. NOTHING!

Part of one assignment was reflecting our our experiences in an area. I described my experiences in as much detail as I could possibly describe without making stuff up. AND the assignment says if you don't have any experience please share that also. SO, I'm looking at my grade and I lost one point, ONE POINT because my experience was not detailed enough! Seriously? Its my experience! I wrote everything I could write! My experience was lacking by one stupid point?! The rubric, if I didn't describe it enough she should have given me a 7/10 in that area instead of a 9/10. Its something stupid and petty. WHY?

Then, she constantly tells me how my location for observations is terrible. Well, I'm sorry! I'm a SAHM and I don't have money for a sitter and nobody to trade with for sitting. The syllabus says "access to children" but did not say a specific location. Usually they'll say a "5 start center" or something. Only one is specific - a Kindergarten classroom. But now it can't even be a private kindergarten - it has to be a public kindergarten. It also can't be a charter through the public system. Seriously, outline the darn setting you want in exact details from day one! I am with kids (my own DD, playdates, church, etc) all the time - to me that is "access to children."

I mean, what more does this lady want! I know I'll never get a perfect grade. I only have maybe 5 more assignments til I'm done with the course. THANK GOD! BUT, really what more can I do? I work my butt off to make good grades. I know some people are just negative and don't really care. I'm all for feedback really I am, but be detailed if you want something elaborated in with my experience please state something specific! Please be clear from day one about requirements for observation! I try my darn hardest!
