There are few things I find more irritating than when you voluntarily take a course or job training in hopes that it will allow you to do a better job and the instructor just beats you down. I’m currently in the middle of a course where the instructor makes me feel utterly incompetent. I paid for this course with my own money so that I could do better at my job and I feel utterly inept. Gah! So frustrating! *end vent*

Ok clearly this person isn’t a good teacher because a teacher is supposed to inspire not belittle!
Maybe s/he is frustrated that s/he teaches for a living and it wasn’t their dream career so needs to crush those who are dreaming bigger!
Hang in there it will be worth it in the long run!

@j_jaye: I appreciate your response! Despite having my self-esteem crushed into a million pieces, I am learning new and challenging things. So, I’m hoping it will indeed be worth it in the long run. Sometimes it is really easy to lose sight of that though. This course is the first of three and it’s really making me second guess if I want to do the other two… 🙁

That’s unfortunate. What class are you taking?
