I had a similar thing in 4th grade.
Question: what do a plant’s roots do?
9 yo Me: suck up water and nutrients
Teacher: WRONG. They hold the plant in the ground.
My mom, looking at the test answers: I… think your teacher might hate you.

I remember when I was in 3rd grade my teacher made me write “I am not smart” on the board 100 times cause I got the worst grade on a paper once, so my mom broke her car window and then the teacher died a year later choking on a biscuit.

In 4th grade read Agatha Christie books under the table. My teacher would punish me for it. I was nine years old and reading adult books! Years later I thought how limited my teacher was for not recognizing what an advanced reader I was and encouraging it.

…and got a grade taken off because I left the ragged edges on my notebook paper

My Psych 101 teacher told me that our final grade would only be comprised of the top 3 of our 4 tests and that if we were happy with the first 3 we didn’t have to come to class anymore or take the final.
My 3 tests averaged at 90.
She failed me.

…because she said it broke the lead in them… bro we were using the Dixon # 2s you get from Walmart like these weren’t expensive pencils. Terrible teacher. Ironically I’ll be an art teacher myself in a few years 🙂 plan on doing the opposite with my kiddos

My 6th grade Home Room teacher had a deal where if you do all of your homework for 14 straight days, for every class, and get it signed off by every teacher, she would buy you McDonald’s for lunch. I did it, and when I showed her she said, “Yeah, this deal isn’t for you.”

One time in third grade a boy ran into me on the playground and I fell into a pole and burst my temple open and the day I came back, with stitches, my teacher made me stand in front of the class and say verbatim: “this is why we don’t interrupt boys playing on the playground.”

I was also informed she never taught us to use the corner of a paper, she didn’t want to have to change everyone’s test, bottom line I would not get the points back. My parents also wouldn’t let me take it to the principal because it was the first test of the year (10th grade).

In second grade I wrote a book report and overused parentheses but my teacher thought they were C’s.
I had written “(as in” and my teacher circled in and wrote in “COUSIN?” and I was like NO NOT COUSIN what do you think the closing parenthesis is ?????
