"She would ignore me. She didn't like me. Well cuz I got in trouble at the beginning of the year and she decided I was a bad kid from then on even though I was a good kid."
"She talks a lot…but she's not a warm teacher. With other teachers we talk about all kinds of things. She's not very open."
"I felt discouraged because I was asking questions, on questions, on questions and no one would answer me. But I understand why a little bit. I was annoying, maybe just a little, because I just never really understood."
"Sometimes they don't understand why you don't understand. They'd get frustrated easily sometimes."
"It was more the teacher. She was never there to help like before school or after school. And she was one of those teachers that talked to the chalkboard, not to the class."
"It was a huge chemistry class and my teacher didn't really have time to answer questions. She was always buzzing about trying to talk to everyone at the same time. I don't know, I didn't want to make her day any more stressful...It's not that the teacher wouldn't have answered my questions."
"She was mean. I never say that about other teachers. She would constantly call on me and I would tell her I didn't know how to do it and she wouldn't explain it and just hand me the formula. One problem right after the other…it was embarrassing and I started ditching and had to take it over freshman year."
"She told me I was an idiot once...She told us a lot of stuff I think was wrong, like if a woman got pregnant it would be a girl if the man wore tight pants and the semen got squished...She was so bad."
"I'd always have to ask more questions, on top of questions, on top of questions and they always got frustrated with me because I'd have a question about that answer and a question about that answer and I'd just keep going. They weren't real happy with me. It got to the point they wouldn't answer my questions anymore."
