    Dr. R

    I have always gotten relatively good grades (A's and B's), an I've always gotten along well with all of my teachers, and for the most part have never been yelled at by one before. But I had an awful experience with my science teacher today, who we'll just call 'Dr. R'. So we were...

    I'm no a cry baby but I cry sometimes when I'm stressed. A couple of teacher just said some stupid teacher thing when I was really stressed or depressed and I broke down. Once, my music teacher woke me up from the only sleep I'd had all week, asking me if the music stand was...

    I Had a Teacher Hit Me Once

    Well back in grade school every teacher made me cry.  I was a cry baby.  If someone called me stupid I would cry.  (Which they did and I did.)  However, there was this gym teacher who actually hit me when I was crying. I was in second or third...

    My teachers do yell at me a lot. Sometimes i think its because I'm the smallest and the most defensive. Half the time I'm just sitting there listening to them when all of a sudden, i drop my pen onto the floor and disrupt the class. Apparently. My band teacher is the worst. He...

    We Didn't Do Anything!

    Well, this past school year (10th) I had probably the worst teacher I've ever had. All I will call him is Mr. H. Well, he isn't all bad, he has his good moments, like he is very helpful if you go to him after school, and he is *usually* fair. But those moments are overshadowed by...

    My 6th grade teacher. She was a total control freak who absolutely hated anyone doing anything their way. This meant even taking notes in class a certain way, or only using a certain color ink to do it, even if we had a better idea of how to make things clearer for us. Anyway she...

    Remember, You're A Star.

    This is from the other side, just to give this group some optimism. Quite often, your teacher is unaware he/she is upsetting you. They DO care; why would they teach if they didn't? If you confront them, they will apologise. So here's my story: He is the Head Of Maths. I had...
