Most teachers are wonderful. Except for the two who told my parents and I that I’d never get accepted to community college. I was generally a B student. And in college (University of Miami), I was more of a B+/A student.
I actually remember getting a D on an essay in college, first semester ever. She gave me a chance to rewrite it with a handout that had basic writing rules. “You should have learned this in high school,” she said. I was writing like I was taught in high school. lol
For the few lousy teachers I had, there were so many great ones. Overall, I have a great respect for teachers.
