In my first high school, the teachers hated everyone who didn't something that could improve the school's PR. I remember our first day in the art teacher's class, she asked us what would we hope to achieve in our time at the school. I said, I didn't yet, and she said "You better decide quickly" like it was a threat.

No, I've never been bullied by teachers. Maybe I didn't receive the needed support from them during elementary and middle school, but I wasn't bullied from them.

When I was in high school, I had a science teacher who kept commenting about a boy's weight.. always referring to him as the "big boy". He was always over weight and would "laugh off" the teachers comments - which were almost daily. I always felt really bad for him. I think I was in grade 9/10 and thought how inappropriate it was for the teacher to comment. I wish I had the balls (as I do now) to report him.

I only had several issues with teachers, but in those cases they yelled at everyone. Though my 6th grade teacher, when she saw me holding back tears when I had realized I had forgotten my homework to knock it off. I became so paranoid about crying that I did everything in my power not to when something would happen that would otherwise trigger it, including putting myself down for it.

That didn't turn out too well in the long run though. At least that teacher was supposedly fired? Not sure if she was fired or just quit, but since she was the math teacher and I had a different homeroom teacher everyone complained about her.

My seventh grade geography teacher told me I was as useless and helpless as an infant, and did she want her to change my diapers for me? The same year, my math teacher looked at me and told me in front of the entire class that he could tell I wouldn't be popular because of the way I dressed (as if that was completely relevant to how well I would do in his class). Things got better in high school because I went to a charter school I chose for myself.

Ah the dreaded feeling of losing your homework I hate that and that would not help. I had people keep saying it's okay which only made me more angry.

This isn't about a teacher, but about someone in the school (an aid) In a past year. Dawtain was playing catch with his aid. His aid threw the ball, and it zoomed past him and hit me in the head. I shot a mean look at the aid, however, dawtain walked by the exact moment I gave the mean look. The aid got extremely mad, thinking I gave dawtain a mean look. She stormed over to me and said "why did you give dawtain a mean look? i threw the ball, not him."I replied, in a annoyed voice "i didn't." She then glared at me and shouted "yes you did!" Looking at the ground, I said "no, I didn't. That mean look was at YOU. Dawtain just happened to walk by the moment I gave the mean look" she then said "No, that look was at dawtain. Say sorry to him." I was crying by now because of the pain from the ball and from her mean looks. "No. The only one that needs to say sorry is YOU!" I ran away, in tears.

Most teachers actually really liked me because I was so quiet and well behaved except when I was in elementary school there was one teacher, he was my gym teacher who always singled me out, stopped the whole class and yelled at me just because I wasn't good at sports or because I didn't understand something. I had this teacher for both grades 5 and 6 and when it was time for me to go to grade 7 I got him as my homeroom teacher. Well this didn't go so well and I eventually ended up having a nervous breakdown and I had to get home schooled for two months and when I finally went back to school I got put back to grade 6 with my old homeroom teacher and I was with my friend who was one year younger than me. That teacher was horrible and he made me despise gym class. I didn't really like gym before I had him but after my experience with him I absolutely despised gym and I'd get nervous and sick every time I had to take it. When I got to grade 10 I was so happy that gym wasn't mandatory anymore.

Not really bullied by teachers because I was a teacher's pet and obeyed ALL the rules but I did have two negative experiences:
1) Grade 7: I was being physically bullied daily and the teachers intentionally turned a blind eye to it because they feared for their jobs. After a while, I was pulled out of class for ten minutes, the principal explained that someone is being bullied and to stop at and I walked in to a "sorry (GHF)" from most students in the most insincere voices ever. I have no idea what he said but it did include personal medical information that was supposedly confidential. Yeah, right!
2) Grade 10: For some reason, the teacher HATED me. It got so bad I 'apologized' for my bad behavior just so I could stand being in the same room as her. Still to this day don't know what her problem was as no other teacher ever though anything bad about me as I was the model student.

yes however it was only one teacher. He was my 7th grade teacher. He would always mock me about asking if i could go to the bathroom. He also noticed i was awkward and try to have the class turn against me which worked pretty good for him.

I never had problems with teachers. However, I remember vividly being humiliated by one in front of the whole class in th last grade of Elementary school, for not knowing what "being in harmony" meant. I was the only student that didn't raise her hand and she just had to bring the whole class's attention on me.

I will admit that video surveillance in classrooms is a good idea, though drastic, but you should be aware that the only one who can ever make you feel bad is yourself. Take pity in the fact that those who try to hurt you either do not know they are doing so or have been hurt themselves.

When somebody bullies you, he/she is subconsciously asking you if you are more powerful than him/her. When you give them the reaction they seek, you are subconsciously answering yes. When you pretend not to be aware of their bullying attempts while planning to report the event in the future, they leave you alone.

I think it's VERY sad that ANYONE gets pleasure out of someone else's suffering. To me, that is the very definition of evil. My own moral compass is such that, with any kind of job, I'd do my level best to bring a bully (be it student, teacher, coworker or boss) to justice, even if it GUARANTEED that I would be fired!! !! !! !! ! I wouldn't want to work for such a company anyway. Well, if money was THAT tight I'd start looking for another job the very day I spot the bullying.

While I haven't had any true bully teachers (at least any targeting me), I am currently taking a course with a professor who makes things unnecessarily difficult for students by not posting notes online (from what I can gather, his philosophy is that because he didn't have that as a student, neither should we) and not giving a break during his 2-hour lectures, making it that much easier to fall asleep or just space out. Basically, if you miss one class or even fall asleep for a significant chunk of it, your only hope is to spend many, many hours reading the textbook to pick out what parts of the lecture are covered in it. Hours that could be better spent on homework (for this class or others), looking into the CS job market, or trying to build a social life so I have some hope of finding someone to marry, so I can start a family.

Most fellow CS students at my school agree he stinks. Yet he has very high Rate My Professors scores!! WTF???

Part of it, though, is that I'm so used to clear-cut grading and rubrics, and this professor is much more vague about grading. He may curve, but if a curve is really necessary then I can say good-bye to knowing where I truly stand. The one mitigating factor there is that all I need is a C- in it to have some wiggle room in my other classes to graduate with honors, whereas during my last attempt at it I didn't know that, and so the prospect even of a C frightened me, since I'm so used to A's. I'm actually HAPPY that "high honors" (3.8 GPA) is out of mathematical reach for me, since otherwise I'd be quaking in my boots about the prospect of just missing that (most likely because of an A- or B+ in this class with the rest of my grades A's) because one professor made things unnecessarily difficult for the whole class!
