Teacher trouble

Originally appeared online in the teen series Your Healings -  December 14, 2021.

I was dreading my physics class. At my school, everyone is required to select a “pathway,” which includes specific classes based on a topic of interest. I chose the green energy pathway. All of the students in that pathway are required to take physics with the same teacher. I’d heard from previous students that she was a tough teacher, so I started the class with low expectations.

Having a negative attitude made the first quarter hard, especially since this was my first semester of online-only classes. I was easily frustrated by the assignments the teacher was giving us, and I had trouble reaching her outside of class because she rarely checked her emails.
