If a genie told you they would grant you ten wishes if you could find away to improve the life of people who had it more difficult than you?

What plan would you come up with?
You can have ten wishes through out your life once you help others. No more
I would devise a plan to help autistic people.
I would wish for enough money to help my son, husband and me live comfortably after my son was cured of autism.
I would hold on to the rest of my wishes.

I'd ask for ten of the people I'm flunking right now to be given the personal character to do enough work to pass my courses, so I don't have to flunk them and then hear it from them and my superiors for doing my job and flunking people who don't work for what they want.

I have no problem with people who do even a MINOR amount of work.

The students I have a problem with are the ones who have not simply made enough of an effort to fully master basic reading skills and who believe that ALL courses in college should be as easy as remedial courses that they shouldn't have been passed through (given their demonstrated reading / writing skills). THEN these people have adult temper tantrums IN CLASS because they find that normal level courses aren't as easy as the remedial courses were for them--because they're not getting 'A's in the normal level courses.

I have had other students shake their heads and ask me if I always take this amount of public verbal abuse from students. That is what I'm dealing with here.

I speak slowly and clearly when I lecture (I prefer to have discussions); I write important things on the board. The college teaching evaluator wrote a rave review on my teaching--she had no reason to do that other than the fact that she believes I'm an excellent teacher.

I'm a good teacher. I don't deserve the verbal abuse I get from worthless people who are angry that I am not GIVING them grades they haven't worked for. I haven't deserved any of this.

When I was in college I had many great professors.
I also argued with some.
If I got A on every test but one B I received a B in the class. We didn't have A- or B+
I also had a Science Professor tell the whole class I don't teach I lecture. Read the book.
My friend took notes in steno because no one could write fast enough to keep up with him. Others recorded him. He said, I am the Dean. You have no one to complain too.
I worked very hard but I am not perfect. No one is.
