One of my school teachers can be defined as one word and one word only: unfair.

The purpose of a teacher is to help students learn and give them the grade that they deserve. If they tell you that you can write a guess and it won’t matter if you get it wrong, you expect the teacher to not mark that answer against you. During my french class, Ms. M showed us a picture and told us to put down a guess. I asked her if it was okay if we got it wrong, and she said that it’s fine because it was just a guess. After 1 or 2 classes, I got my homework back and I saw that she had marked off a point. When I asked her what happened, she told me “You have to get it right in order to get the point”. This infuriated me, not only did that lower my mark, it made me lose a lot of respect for her as a teacher. Although I would like to explain how much I despise her marking, I decided to simply say that it is unfair. Of course I will not let my mark drop down, so I am going to send her an email describing everything I’ve said above. Hopefully that works out.

Some teachers even pick on certain students without a reasonable or appropriate explanation. A teacher of mine always thinks that I am doing something else on the computer but are not able to prove that. I hope that my teacher will try and act more adult.
