Dear Dish-It: I Hate My Teacher

Dear Dish-It,

I just moved and I hate my new teacher. Today she told me not to put on so much makeup when I only had mascara on. I don’t have any way to take out my frustration. HELP!!!!!!

just me

Dear jm,

I can hear a lot of frustration in your post. It sounds like you feel that this teacher really is unfair. Have you talked to your teacher about how you’re feeling? Of course, you would not want to say “I think you’re a bad teacher,” but you could talk to her about your feelings and explain that you do care and don’t want to cause trouble. Explain your side of things (calmly) and work with her to make things better.

If you talk to her and still feel that things are unfair or that the problem hasn’t been solved, you can consider making a complaint to the school or asking to change teachers, but I’m not sure either of these options will work. It seems like a pretty small issue and one that you should be able to work out yourself, with or without involving your teacher.

You may also try and talk to your classmates about this. Do you know if any of them feel the same way? If so, it may make you feel better to know that you are not the only one feeling frustrated. Or, try talking to your mom and dad about it. They may be able to help by offering you an objective opinion or making suggestions as to what you can do to improve your relationship with your new teacher.

Finally, the last option is to just deal with your feelings on your own and wait for them to pass (I promise you that they will). Since you don’t want to cause trouble in class or become someone the teacher feels is a troublemaker, try going to school with no makeup on (not even mascara) – don’t give your teacher any reason to pick on you or call you out for breaking the rules.

    Tell that girl that she looks so horrible she makes roadkill look beautiful. Clap your hands really loud with nobody looking and then say "HEY WHY'D YOU HIT ME?" (Don't thank me thank Diary of a Wimpy Kid) Tell someone. Tell a teacher or somebody Or ignore that excuse for a person and get on with your life without her I mean, it.
