    Ok so a teacher I don’t like gave me summer school and she would fail me on purpose because she always said that my essays and document based questions and whatever I handed her were bad and other teachers always said that my essays and document based questions were good before I had her as a teacher.She always kept giving me low scores and bad grades on purpose and she said that a 65 is the highest I could get. Some kids were working in groups one time on a lesson that I thought was easy and the teacher said that they are ahead and I’m not and she said it in a way as if those kids are smarter than me and know more than me and this made me feel like I’m not smart as if I’m not smart. Then I was in class one time and the teacher made us reply to a question the lesson on the work was asking us which was a document based question and I wrote a response to the document based question which was in my own words and she asked if it was in my own words and I felt like she doesn’t expect me to know how to answer to a document based question correctly. Then she made us write an essay over break and she asked me if I wrote the essay and I said yes and she asked me what was the hardest part about writing an essay and the essay I wrote was a good essay because before I had her as a teacher the essays I wrote like that one other teachers would say that it’s a good essay and she said that I can’t write my essays like English class. She even failed me and gave me summer school.

  • Teachers: Who do I talk to?

    I'm a special ed assistant and I worked in an elementary school last year. I prefer to work with the secondary students. Who do I need to talk to about that and what is the likelihood they will transfer me?

    I’m 14 years old a recently I’ve gotten a new piano teacher. She’s a lot more experienced then my old one which makes me even more nervous. Before every piano lesson I feel as though I’ll disappoint her or something. Like I’m wasting my parents money. Believe me I love playing the piano but playing in front of other people especially my teacher is nerve racking for me. My dad says it’s because I have a deep fear of dissapoinring someone or letting them down. Is there any way to stop being nervous before a lesson? To quit thinking like she will judge me or think I’m bad?

    So (almost) everyone in highschool I get along with and on good terms with. However, there is one teacher that I felt has been rude to me most of the time in high school and offended me several times. I didn t take any revenge to avoid school consequences. But at my graduation (after all students get their diploma and walk off stage), say I find this teacher. What could happen if I start flipping her off / cursing at her / and then wishing malicious things against her?

  • A questioning about this phrase "joy full heart"?

    in the phrase "joy full heart" is that possible to give the following interpretation: 1 - a heart full of joy, having joy as adjective and full heart as noun? 2 - Or joy with your heart full, denoting to say be happy with all your heart? would those inferences be reasonable?

  • What are your thoughts on this teacher s behavior?

    Let s say there s a student with a setback in her writing. She s a quiet kid in the class and does well in math, but her writing problem is a major problem.

    Let s say there s a student with a setback in her writing. She s a quiet kid in the class and does well in math, but her writing problem is a major problem. So the teacher keeps her (and other students) from doing the things other students are doing during the fun days until she meets her teacher s criteria. As the year passes, she doesn t meet her teacher s expectations but that student is really trying. As a result, she has to miss break everyday of the week and fix that problem. The teacher probably begins to suspect that the student is not trying at all, so she forces her to sit on timeout wall next to the playground until the time for her timeout is over. The same routine repeats again, rarely the student is let go because she finally did it. The last year of school comes by and everyone takes the projects they finish home. Before the bell rings for the students leave, the teacher comments on the students in front of the classmates. The girl s comment from the teacher was that the girl did the least projects (because of problem) out of the whole class and even compares the amount to a student that is not as intelligent as her. (This is just a story. Similarities are pure coincidence!)
