Most think that a student claiming to be bullied by a teacher is lieing. I'm here to tell you that's not always the case. Even in Collage instructors can be cruel just like students can but they hold more power.

Back in 8th grade I was in a Geography class eager to learn. The teacher told us to do a paper about somewhere outside of the United States that we wanted to go. Even at this time I was pretty artsy and had wanted to go to Italy especially Venice for quite some time. I wanted to do the whole country but the teacher said we had to be specific. So I wrote about Venice. I gave the paper and the teacher laughed coldly in front the class at me. If that wasn't enough she told me that I needed to be more realistic and pick somewhere like Puerto Rico and said if I wanted to go to Venice I could just take a boat in the sewers. Well guess what teach? I went to Italy as my High School graduation celebration. Spent two whole weeks touring around Rome, Milan, Florance, Capri and YES even Venice. This stories lesson? Don't give up on your dreams even if teachers try to k*ll them keep them alive in your heart and you never know they MIGHT come true.

I will be strait forward I come from a Christian Conservative family with lots of family members that have been in the military. So when in the start of my freshman year of High School my Logic and Redoric teach started slamming religious people I was pretty hurt. She wasn't just hurting me she was hurting my whole family and quite a few of the first friends I had. If that wasn't enough 90% of the reading material was left anti right. I am a right wing I will admit it, but I also know not everyone was raised the same as me and everyone is entitled to their opinion. Besides the Eagle cant fly with just one wing right or left he needs BOTH in balance as well as mid roadies to soar. The assignments the teacher gave was asking our own opinions so rather than supporting the reading material I was honest. She didn't agree with me but instead of talking to me or appreciating a different mind, she took it out on my grades so my parents would hammer me. They didn't believe me at first but then I did something that teach didn't want any of us doing. Bring reading material home. They saw it and took it up to the principal and my grades were sorted out and the teacher was let go at the end of that year. Lesson when something is wrong don't be afraid to involve your family they can be a major help. I didn't mind the different opinion than my own. What I DID mind was her taking my difference in opinion out on my grades.

Many people tell you being ridiculed gets left behind and education gets easier once your out of High School. Sadly this isn't always the case. In my one year of collage alone Ive run into two ignorant teachers that took my differing ideas out on my grades. One another Geography and one Class room management instrutor that didnt model what she taught. The Geography was more intrested in politicly hammering us than teaching geography. Geting through that was mostly just finding a friend in the class.

I took the class room management cause I am interested in teaching acting or sewing to speshal needs or as a therapy consitering how both helpd me. She asked us our field the first day so I told her and she laughd saying there was no future in teaching arts in my state. I thought where in the world did she get that? we were geting an arts center in the city also who says I pland to stay in my home state? none the less I kept up with the class work with my pashion. Grade wise I didnt do great and will take the class again hopefully with a more open minded instructor but im not letting it change me.

Every so often you will find a teacher or professor that you just cannot get along with and that is ok because you wont be able to get along with everyone. The most important thing is your education and even though they have no right to take shot at your religion sometimes its better to just extract the knowledge from the course and keep moving forward keeping your eye on your degree.
