(i have my hand up)
Her: Are you serious? Are you actually raising your hand right now?
Me: Yes. Mrs. blahaha (protecting her privacy) is my teacher
Her: Well has she ever taught you about contractions, and how you aren't ever supose to use them in a formal essay?????
Me: No (however i was aware of this rule)
she walks over to the board and writes "aren't" and "can't" on it
Her: You are never supose to use contractions on a formal essay. if you used this grammer in a letter to your boss or for a job, he would laugh at you and you would look like an idiot. You only ever us contractions in an informal letter.
Me: But i the format i used on my paper was a letter to my friend
then she walks away pretending to not hear me, and go's to pick on someone else. after another 10 minutes of lighting into another student, she walks over to my table again. she makes my friend stand up and read what he wrote for his paper. it wasnt a great paper by any means, but most of the kids in this class are in there for a reason. very few could actually write a good story. After he reads it out loud, she procedes to absolutly rip into him. we didnt learn anything at all. All she did was yell at us
Edit: i didnt mean to offend any teachers or others who might take offense to this
