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.

    This is the problem... My friends that I hang out with in school keeps on calling me fat and stupid. They are my only friends so I will not betray them, but when they are in trouble, they makes me the scapegoat and blame me on everything. Everytime they drop something, they tell me to pick it up for them. Everytime when I cannot play with them due to health issues, they will tell me to trade for something, like I can't play on a day, they will ask me to help them buy drinks (with their money).

    Maybe you could try working your way up to the conversation. I started out talking about how I was feeling online because it was practically impossible to talk about in real life, then I started talking about depression (in general, not that I thought I had it) to my friends - who I was feeling very distant from at the time, before I started being able to admit that I probably had it myself. Reaching out is one of the hardest parts but trust me, you will get there eventually. I found it hard myself because people tell people to reach for help but they never really talk about how to do it. It's usually just building the courage to say "I've been feeling depressed" even though it's not a comfortable thing to say. The thing is, there are many people out there who will be willing to help you that you wont trust. I got help when I admitted to my maths teacher about what was going on, and I definitely did not trust my maths teacher. But anxiety and depression is quite common and out there are going to be people who will understand and have been through similar experiences. You just have to find an adult who can get you help. Whether this be your parents, family member, a school counselor, or a teacher.  I hope this was helpful, and good luck.

    So there's this guy in my class and he sits next to me. Correction he HAS to sit next to me, So my classroom as a table with 2 desks connected to make a huge desk but separated holders things to put our stuff in. So this guy is really the class clown of the class and he can be a jerk when he wants to be but sometimes can be a really nice guy. He likes to talk to me and he "Occasionally" Touches my hand or arm in a friendly way.. I think :3 but anyways he teases me ... A LOT but he sometimes insults me but when he sees my face not cracking into a smile. he instantly says sorry or didnt mean it like that kind of way and i smile. So does he like me? Or he just being a regular guy?  Ello and I thinks he likes you and feels your the close enough friend what he can joke around with. He doesnt want to offend you or upset you and that shows he cares about your feelings. Me advises is take your time and see how your friendship develops.  If it feeels natural to ask him does he like you then ask him and theres no rush :) Good luck :love
