So, this happened before lunch and i've been keeping it bottled up inside since then. Basically my class were acting how they usually did when the teacher wasn't in, standing on the desks, forming packs and being silly, the usual kind of thing. I'm sitting in my little main character kind of seat, staring out the window and writing down stuff that I want to post in future. The teacher walked in eventually and something the person sitting next to me said made me laugh, not loudly, just to myself, the teacher isn't even looking at me, all's fine at this point. Then, when the teacher stood at the front of the class and gave us the same lecture we get every week 'You should treat your class with more respect. You should stop acting like cowards and start being responsible teenagers' that kind of lecture. However, as I am terribly sick, I coughed, it wasn't a loud cough but it was obvious enough that I was coughing and not laughing, my teacher pointed at me and shouted 'Everyone! Derika seems to think this is funny!' Of course it didn't embarrass me this as I knew I had done nothing wrong and so did everyone else, you could tell everyone else was also like 'what the heck? She did nothing wrong'.
This only fueled his lecture and I wasn't really bothered by it all that much, I was still a little annoyed, he could see it didn't bother me. Then a second time he pointed out in the middle of the class like 'Derika hasn't done this work! I want to speak to you about this!' And at this point i'm really ticked off at him because if you need to speak to someone you signal at the end of the lesson and not during the middle of the class. Now, I hadn't done the work because I was ill but it wasn't evident that I had done the studying, it was test day and I got full marks as always, so I don't see why he needed to do that.
Lastly, he then gave us sheets to fill out, no problem this is a usual thing, about the work I apparently 'didn't do'. I had filled it in no problem and was packing up to leave for lunch, 5 minutes earlier than the bell. He then shouts at me and the other person that comes with me, I can take anyone I want if I feel like it, that we have to fill in the sheet before we can. We tried to say that we had filled in the sheet, to the point where we might have accidentally raised out voices, and we still weren't allowed to leave. By this point there was three minutes until the bell so we just legged it, however the teacher saw and I think the reason why he didn't call us is because A. There's essentially no point and B. He could see we done the work.
While i'm used to being called out for being the smartest in my classes i'm not used to being called out for things I didn't do/negative things like that. Honestly, while I am known to skip classes quite a bit, this has discouraged me from going to English, specifically when he's teaching, because I honestly cannot be putting up with stuff like this. While everyone would just shrug it off and say it's no big deal, by the reactions of everyone in the class, knowing I had done nothing wrong, and them trying to defend me in the end, this isn't something I can brush off easily. Not to mention there was another member of staff in the room at the time, staring in my general direction, she would have pointed it out if I had done anything wrong but she apparently 'didn't see me' and said nothing the entire lesson, so much for being there if anyone needed any extra help.
Honestly, this has never happened to me before and while i'm still unsure how to feel about it, I feel this is the correct response to it. I have tried reporting this teacher many times for singling me out, not publically of course but just subtle hints here and there, they must be that DESPERATE for English teachers, or teachers in general, to keep him. Like my old music teacher, who thankfully left, i'm surprised why he hasn't been fired by now because this is just ridiculous. I would ask to move class if I could, but unfortunately he's the english teacher that offers the highest education for the department in my year, so i'm pretty much screwed.
I've had teachers threaten to kill me 6 times and make me bleed, i've had teachers threaten to strangle members of my class and honestly, this has to be the teacher that annoys me the most for some reason. I also apologise for any spelling mistakes, English is not my first language and I really can't be bothered to fix them i'm that angry still.
