Dear Students

My sister informs me that I did not have a chili pepper on ratemyprofessor.com and that she had to add one herself.

I think I am hot enough to deserve a chili pepper that is *not* from my sister.

Please accommodate this.

Thank you.

I read the reviews. Most of the negative reviews are because your students seem to whine a lot about how difficult your class is.

DUH, it's an honours course!!!

Seriously.

You don't know me, but I found your blog on Segullah, so sorry to lurk. I'm a professor too, and I've had to stop reading my ratings on ratemyprofessor.com because some of the comments are just plain mean and whiny! My class isn't an honors course, but it is a HARD course, and students complain about having to read the text and study! It seems like only the whiners go to that site. No chili peppers either....

don't worry about lurking. blogs are *made* for lurking.

I don't read my comments, either. Mostly it's the one's who hate you that take the time to fill out a review. I like how they have this new function where professors can fight back, though! I might just use it one of these days!

I think you are chili pepper worthy! Hottie.

I used to get chili peppers before I had a baby. Now I get NADA. Thus, I am not teaching this semester.

Swanky Mommy, did I ever tell you about how in grad school I used to look at you and think, "man, that girl is SO HOT."

true story.
