    Basically I started Dual Maths back in Sep 2015.
    At first the teacher was ok; i had no problems.
    But then i needed a new book i said that i needed a new book she completely ignored me so then i said i ran out of paper. She shouted at me saying are you gonna become a world leader? she then said if you need a new book just say that you need a new book!!!!
    My parents dropped me off at school so they stopped on yellow lines for a few seconds for me to get out of the car then went she points at the car (she is on duty at the school gates) and starts shouting at me about what yellow lines are for.
    I honestly dont know what to do with this women as i feel as if she is tormenting me.
    Parents evening is on the 14th April and i have her for maths
    What should i do?

    Complain to your head of year? Idk doesn't seem like there's much you can do but put up with her until the end of the course :/

    Tell your parents.

    what a nice person, she must be fun at parties

    Write it all down, tell your parents and explain the situation. Then get them to raise it at parents evening with her. If this does not work - straight to Head of Maths / Head of Year / Head teacher.

    I know it may be hard but do consider trying to understand her point of view - maybe she's stressed because of her workload, maybe that morning shed had a bad day...?

    If it gets to you that much - could you change classes? At the end of the day she is there to teach you and she is paid to do it to the best of her ability.
