I would ask a different teacher if I could join but if she's the only coach, I would report her. Activities are supposed to be for everyone, let alone enjoyable. This is why those 60 minutes of activity ads are out. I personally think it's wrong to deny kids of sports/activities whether or not they're decent at it or not. The fact that she laughed at your effort to join shows what kind of person she truly is. Don't listen to her OP, and do what you really love!
I don't think it's an "activity" as in exercise activity. It's to join a program, whether that be sporting or otherwise, we don't have enough evidence to assume either way. Though I think the very fact that this program has an activity just to join it suggests that the program does not accept everyone.
What a bitch! Usually, when people act out this way, it's to make up for how shitty and insecure they feel about themselves. I'm sorry you had the misfortune of coming across someone like that, but don't let her stop you from doing what you want to do, OP! Try finding a different program, perhaps? Hopefully a one with a more welcoming teacher.
That's kinda cruel? honestly if someone did that to me, it would lessen my enthusiasm in the program. I mean, who would want to be hanging around people like that all the time? they think they're clever now, but word spreads, and soon nobody will want to be part of it due to their attitude.
I think I would speak to the principle. There is no call for a teacher being deliberately cruel to a student.
Cruel? Perhaps they were being frank. People often have extremely unrealistic expectations. Perhaps the teacher knew this person's temperament, skill level, or fitness for the activity. If you're 400 pounds, you shouldn't be a cheerleader/gymnast. If you failed algebra, you shouldn't take calculus. Etc etc. Being in my 30's, I've learned a few things in life. One is that people are more hurt by false encouragement, than the truth.
# 21 To be frank would mean that OP had initiated the official request to join and was told 'no'. to be approached by one of the instructors and asked if one wanted to join only to be laughed at and told ' no' is just plain cruel and rather rude/unprofessional. even if OP isn't suited for the program this is not the way for OP to find out that. Also, I'm pretty sure you are confusing wisdom with age and becoming jaded with time btw.
definitely deliberate cruelty, another word for that is mobbing, your teacher should be warned that that kind of behavior shouldn't be tolerated in a school, where young minds are being formed to achieve something in life..people like that ruin your sense of achievement and your self-esteem, a pedagogue should know better than that, talk to the school principle.
