So last year, the year started off pretty nice. But about a few months into the school year, my English teacher (let's call her Ms. H) began treating
me like less of a student. My grades began slipping and my motivation had been going away. But instead of asking me if I was okay, she just started
going off on me about how I was her first honors student EVER (she really exaggerated it) to not do well on this certain project (a video project
about the 20's.) I was having a tough time that time of year. My really close friend had just died right in the middle of the project and my teacher
got mad at me for not telling her. Of course, I didn't tell her this until she pulled me out of class for having a meltdown (let me guarantee you that
I am a normally silent person who holds my feelings in during school). But then this is what really hurt me. She told me "I used to think you were a
mature person." I know it sounds like I was immature but I can't emphasize enough how this was my first meltdown during school hours since I started
high school. She called me immature but I passed it off as her being mad for my disruption. But things got worse.
She was in the hospital for a couple of weeks and my class passed around a get well soon card. I signed my name in it and I think I even told her to
get better. During that time, I was working on a controversial project (that was the theme) that I researched and did a VERY good visual for. Our sub
recorded all of our presentations and gave them to Ms. H to grade while she recovered. I checked my project grade online and saw I got a C when I
deserved an A (I asked all of my friends and they all agreed my project was far better than the grade given.) I confronted Ms. H about this first via
email about how I was offended that she seemed to just place a bad grade on my project because she was being lazy. I even included pictures of my
visual. The next day, I confronted her about how the grade she gave me offended me. She then immediately retorted with "That's funny you should say
that because I was really offended by that picture you left me on my card." I was baffled. She then went on to tell me about how someone drew a
tombstone with devil horns on it and how EVERYONE in my class went up to her and told her they saw me draw it. I confronted the majority of my class
and asked them and they said they didn't even talk to her about it and nobody saw me draw it. I told Ms. H I didn't do it but she brushed me off. So I
learned she changed my grade for the hell of it. I later found out that it was someone in my boyfriend's hour (2 hours after mine) that drew it and
showed it to him.
I brought this up to my principal and he brushed it off and turned his back on me. I went home and cried because I felt helpless. I finally got that
woman to apologise to me, even though it was not enough for the lying and name calling she made me endure.
I tried to ignore this incident. But then another project came up where I had to illustrate a chapter for a book. I did my project on chapter 18 but I
got mixed up and was supposed to work on chapter 8. I asked her where her human compassion was and she just told me "oh well. Don't like it then take
it up with the principal or you can do it for late credit." I was finally sick of her crap and told her "I will take it up with him." he ignored the
situation, yet again, and I didn't do the project. So at this point, my school staff and students were aware of what this woman was putting me through
(and me alone) and my family knew but nobody did a damn thing to get me some help. She would pick favourite students (openly) and then would belittle
me when nobody could see it (calling me immature, blackmailing me for something I never did, lying) and she constantly got away with it. I tried so
hard to get her called out for her actions. I need to know, one year later, if there is anything I can still do to serve her justice? She is great
friends with my current English teacher and it's obvious that there has been communication about me because she picks on me for small things and never
calls other students out for "breaking rules". The rule I broke was having a coffee that I didn't touch all hour. She eats and let's students drink
their coffee and smoothies in class but she only calls me out. My whole class has seen this and notices that I get the worst treatment. I want to add
my new teacher has a problem with people who aren't Catholics and has openly told us she hopes we have all converted to Jesus. I'm Wiccan and she is
aware of this so she gives me even crappier treatment than what Ms. H has beat into her head to give me.
I need advice on how to get justice. I did not deserve to get bullied by these people. I want to get them in trouble for their actions.
I want to emphasize that these are two different but equally wicked teachers. Ms. H is from last year, the other one is the one I currently
