  • Thao Shirley Nguyen spent months teaching a general chemistry course to an introductory chemistry class.
  • An instructor at a college in Houston admitted that she had spent months teaching the wrong class, according to one student’s report.

    Thao Shirley Nguyen spent months of the fall 2013 semester teaching students at Lone Star College - University Park a general chemistry class when she was supposed to be teaching the introductory chemistry they had signed up for, Lauren Firmin said.

    “I was getting 40’s on every test,” Firmin told KHOU, a local news source. “I studied as hard as I could, did everything in my power to try.”

    Firmin said Nguyen admitted her mistake to the class shortly before the final exam, and added extra credit to their grades as a consolation. Firmin’s grade was changed from an “F” to a “B,” which ruined her 4.0 GPA.

    Nguyen has refused to comment on the issue, and the school has said it will not launch a formal investigation.
