Writer's Workshop!

Mama's Losin' It

I just found a neat blog hop for writers (A.K.A. me!). So happy!!! I'm suppose to pick a prompt and write about it, then link up! I'm choosing prompt #2 But teachers know everything!! Write about a time a teacher disappointed you. So here it goes:

We all know girls like her, you know, the popular one/teachers pet. It was our 7th grade year and we were standing in line waiting to ask the teacher questions about our test. She came up behind me and ripped my test out of my hand. I was furious! I tried to get it back but she held it over my head, I did eventually get it back, but only to hear her scream, "she hit me!!!!" Which, of course, I did not. Our teacher was sitting there the entire time, and had to have seen the entire ordeal, he sided with her and wrote me a detention slip, my first ever, detention slip.

The following day after I had served my detention and was getting ready to leave school for the day, my teacher saw me in the hall and called me into the classroom. He said that he knew that I didn't hit her and he was 'sorry' that he sided with her. But he hoped that I would understand that he had to... I most certainly did not understand. My perfect record of no detentions was ruined, she thought she was better than me, had gotten away with a lie, and I was punished for something that I didn't do. How could I possibly ever understand?

  1. That is so unfair! Sometimes teachers are too "busy" to get the real story. It's so frustrating.
