I’m not sure if this is the website to be asking these type of questions, but I don’t want to open another account for an answers website. :shrug:
Anyways, I’m in a bit of a predicament. I have been seeing considerable flaws in my English teacher, and I feel that I should alert the principal.
The first thing is that she can neglect to grade our projects. Such examples are the summer book reports a five-paragraph essay, and a journal for our Holocaust studies. She says things like, “Oh, yeah, I haven’t graded them yet”, or worse yet, “Well, I lost them”. What angers me even more is that she can go on to the troublesome students about how they should be more responsible, but look at her! And these aren’t simple grammar worksheets, either - these were legitimate projects, which I have put a lot of effort into. I feel ripped off, and sort of hurt, actually.
Another thing is that I feel she is targeting one of the students in my class. Now, this student has had a bad history of forgetting to bring in his homework. However, I do not think that deserves being disciplined or being scolded at for very, very minor things. For instance, today, he had a cast on, and so he was forced to write with his other hand. She told him to hurry up writing these example questions, but he said he had a cast on. All she said was, “I have no sympathy. Write faster.” I cannot prove that she is purposely targeting this classmate, but it seems likely that that is the scenario.
One final thing is that (and it might be a nitpick) she can lead us into conversations, but suddenly tells us to be quiet and get to work. She can discuss with us on what has happened in her daily life, but she suddenly snaps at us, telling us to do our work. She’s treating it as if we started such conversations. Even if we did, she should have taken the initiative to tell us not to. It’s like she has no fault whatsoever.
Since I’m merely a kid, I probably have some faults in these arguments. But I would like to hear your opinion on the matter. I just want everyone to have a great school experience, which includes enjoying all of their teachers. Thank you for reading.
