I was not good with Math subject during high school especially when I was in Junior High.

 I had a killer Math teacher. She was a woman with grumpy face and hands full of rings, bracelets and diamond. She only likes smart rich student and will hate stupid and slow learner student.

Unfortunately I was into one of them.

She thought I was the stupid one at that time.

You can see here how labeling could destroy someone else’s life though. In this story it was me.

She used to bully me all the time since grade 8.She would gave me even forced me to answer her question on whiteboard in front of the class. But when I didn’t give the correct answer she would be very happy and pretending that she was not please with that. So she had million reasons to bully me.

She would got mad. Gave me an order to stand up for hours in the corner of the class while she was teaching as if I was invisible. All students were talking about me, whispering and looked down on me. 

She was always doing that to please herself with bully me and other student. Me and David. But her favorite was me.She would said something rude, pinch my hand or stomach and mocking at me till I saved by the bell.

I did not know anything. Then I was wondering why.

I did not understand why she hates me that much.

I did not hate her or talk bad about the way she was teaching in class.

I did not tell anyone especially to the Headmaster about her bad attitude.

I just did not understand why she did all those things to me.

Since that day I had lose interest with Math subject.

Now I was thinking.

If only she could have given me another option to study Math with easier way instead of spreading fears all over the class.

Maybe we could help someone like me. 

Maybe we could help David too.

    I too had a similar experience and became Math handicapped-I a teacher for 37 years and it’s sickening to hear the horror stories of people who never enter a classroom much less deal with young minds l’m happy for you that you survived and became a wonderful writer🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋
