Unfortunately, this is a true story about a teacher who in m my moms opinion had no business being one.
Mrs. Houston was a surly burned out bitch of a woman. She may have loved teaching at one point but none of that was evident buy the time she was teaching me. So here's the situation. My parents received a call from her to meet and discuss me. I was a problem child and according to her I needed to be dealt with. I did have a speech impediment and a learning delay. The old bag wanted them to put me in a special class so she wouldn't have to deal with my issues. My parents must have refused as they didn't want be to be singled out. She let my classmates pick on me at recess and did nothing to stop them. She spent the remainder of the school term harassing me herself. It got so bad that after Christmas they withdrew me from her class and transferred me to the other grade two teacher. I enjoyed Miss Penny more and was finally able to learn something besides how to duck the bullies. I made a few friends in that class as opposed to the kids in the former class. I am not sure what happened but Mrs. Houston retired after that year. Rumor had it that she had a nervous breakdown and was blaming me and my parents.
