My 7th grade math teacher told me- in front of the entire class- "If you don't start showing your work, you're going to end up in the AIS class with kids who can't spell their own names!"

(I'm now a year ahead of the rest of my grade in math. Yeah right, Mrs. Mankowski.)

OMG same with my 8th grade math teacher!! Only she uses names and does it ALL THE TIME. When we got back quizzes she'd spend half the class talking about everyone's mistakes. She had AWESOME jokes though. By far the best teacher i've ever had.

I hated her. Despised her. She was evil to the smart kids but loved the idiots. Because they showed the work. :twisted: :twisted:

In 7th grade, I went into my 2nd period English class, after coming from science 1st period. Someone asked me what the science homework was, because he had a music lesson 1st period, so as I was explaining, the bell rang. I said about 3 words after the bell rang when my teacher shouts "Why are you talking?! Apologize to the class right now!"
I was like "....what? Are you serious?"
And she said "Yes, stand up and apologize right now or I'll send you to the dean".
So I had to stand up and say "Im sorry for talking".
