The last few years of school my grades haven't been so great. So, this year I decide to get myself back together and start to get honor roll again. The first 6 weeks has already passed and I got honor roll. Well, the 2nd is about to end and report cards will be going out. Most teachers show you your grade before report cards come out. And my french teacher did that today. She calls my name, to see my grade, I walk up to her desk. She points to my grade, a 94 A-. When I see the grade I'm saying to myself "Yes! A-! ". I knew all along I'd get a A or a B in the class but I was understandably excited. As I walk away from her desk she calls me back.
"Erm...Vincent (my french name)..."
"There...there isn't something right here..."
"Well, last year, did you get grades like this in your french class?"
Not many people knew about my bad grades, everyone else thought I was an average student so answering a question like this in the front of the class was down-right embarrassing.
"What kind of grades did you get?"
"Well...C's and D's..."
"And how come you have an A in here?"
"Well, I guess--"
"It just struck me odd how you have a A in here but you had worse grades last year."
I'm not an idiot, I knew what she was talking about. What she was implying. And it pissed me off. This woman had no right to degrade me like that in front of the class for having an A.
"I know what your saying, I don't appreciate it much. I actually try to get better grades, and I do. Then, you suspect me of cheating in your class. I don't think its your place to accuse me of cheating when you haven't caught me. Please, give me the benefit of the doubt."
By now I'm studdering (which comes back when I get upset), my hands are shaking, my face is blood red from the embarassment of having to yell at the teacher and her degrading me. She said something else to me ask I walked back to my desk. I didn't hear what she said, I really didn't care. About a 1,000 feelings were shooting through my head.
If I was a trouble maker in school, I probably wouldn't be so mad at my teacher. But, I'm not. I've never had detention (or B.I.P =Behavior Improvement Plan), never been in the principal's office on bad terms. I'm incredably quiet in class. Most kids don't even realise I'm there.
Just wanna know if i'm wrong, or is she just a bitch.
