Things That I Hate

Being Good at Something at School

It’s so frustrating being ahead of what the teacher is talking about. So I sit at a table of other smarties and chat, and then she can’t stop shouting!

I tell the teacher and ask for some harder work, and I get snarky remarks that I’m not that far ahead. I try everything, I stand up and tell her the answers to all the questions, I show my processes, I even demonstrate how to do something quicker than the way shown. But no, nothing. And I know it sounds like I’m a smart alleck, which I am a bit, but being told utter lies by people in positions of power is a real stinker. The teacher even said once that I was behind the standard for my grade.

And yet my report begs to differ.
