 These questions contributed to a negative reputation around my name, the pain of a heavy revenge perpetrated by proud and arrogant teachers, but also...

The Presidency of a Students Union.

Ironically, I even ended up becoming a University Professor later in life and working for five different Universities.

 What shocked me the most in this experience was finding, for the first time, how alone I was in my ideals. I actually thought that my classmates from the past were just too much of a bunch of chickens to defend their own interests and assume responsibility for their education, but what I found is that actually students want teachers that follow the expected conventional way of teaching.
