I dunno...My students think I have unlimited patience, and I find it sad that having a teacher that blows up maybe twice a year is so out of the ordinary that students comment on it almost weekly. I guess it also helps when I am white-hot with anger, I go steely cold.
Try not to offend and in turn, try not to be offended.
Try not to bait and in turn, try not to take the bait.
All sorts of stuff gets thrown my way, but I don't have the time or energy to take it personally.
Oh well, back to grading and trying to find a version of Pachelbel's Canon in D with String Quartet, Harpsichord AND bassoon. Youtube, you fail me.
