Even if they are true, what business is it of hers? She's a teacher. She gets paid to teach. A "mental illness" hardly excludes a person from being able to learn.


although the teacher was clearly in the wrong a "" mental illness"" can very, and if its bad enough that person as a human being deserves to be taught differently for the sake of their learning.

Tell her she couldn't teach in the first place so what difference does it make?

Haha sorry for to all the grammar Nazis. I thought I had pressed “a" but I guess I didn't. So to all the butthurt people:
That's a dick move.

Sorry no.67, that most cellular devices tend to auto-correct stuff wrong when it's right, or we happen to hit two keys at once getting the wrong letter. Humans make mistakes. And simple keyboard mistakes do not mean that we are a "fail at English". But the internet is a cruel place and the people crueler.

#70 Crueler is not a word. In addition to that, you made multiple mistakes in this comment. Once again, you have proven why the grammar police are a NECESSITY.

Yes, this. You should speak to your principle or guidance councilor, OP. Even if you did have a problem, this wouldn't be an excuse for her to not try. Measures need to be taken to be sure that she doesn't do this again.

Agreed. There are a number of resources available to help you if you do have some sort of delay or need extra support. This is extremely judgmental of your teacher and does nothing more than perpetuate a ridiculous and damaging stereotype. People with mental illness are not stupid nor do they have trouble learning. Learning disabilities and cognitive delays are not the same thing as mental illness. Makes me wonder if your teacher should even be allowed near children/adolescents at all. I hope you spoke to your principal, OP.

OP shouldn't have to explain shit. The teacher shouldn't just give up on her student because someone told her the student was mentally ill. I feel she should lose her job.

I completely disagree with your comment. There are many incredible teachers out there, in fact where I live, the majority of them are awesome. Teachers have to put up with a lot both from the students and their parents and every teacher I know would go out of their way to try and help a kid get the education they deserve.

I wish I could say the same. Most teachers were useless and gave up since I have dyslexia and mild ADD. More then 1 pretty much said I was a lost cause. Screw the teachers I knew. Luckily I ended up getting awesome teachers and extra help in special education. But yeah, most teachers I knew couldn't care less about the kids and more cared about their selves.

@80 unfortunately I can say there are SOME good teachers I would not even come close to saying majority. I was in a private school half my life and public school the other half. Both types had teachers that just did the bare minimum and if you needed help they'd refer you anyone else that got you out of their hair. Teachers put up with a lot? They put up with just as much as any other profession. The issue is that people get an education degree so they can have an 'easy life'. Very few teachers are actually passionate about teaching anything.
