Teacher Ruining My Life Watch
I did a course last year that allowed me to prepare for my AS Art and the teacher I had last year really encouraged me and made me feel more than positive about my artwork, however, this year she is teaching Photography and not Art...
The first piece of work I did went horribly wrong, and the teacher I had last year assisted me in trying to make it better, but because I still didn't like it, told me if I couldn't make it any better to rip it out and doing so I did. However, my actual Art teacher yelled at me for doing so, and then started saying I'd get a grade E for my effort. A long with that, she then told my friend who's in her other class later that 'I gave her a mucky look and looked as if I was to have a nervous breakdown'. Personally, I didn't find it amusing at all...
As well as that, she recently messed up my artpad arranging things, ripping work out and then trying to make a horrible print with it, and then because my work ethic is quite slow, she wet one of my pieces to try and make the colours flow, instead ripping a part of it in the process and didn't even own up to it until I came after break to witness it ripped, with my other teacher explaining to me that she did it.
She's a horrid person, and I'm sick of her. I've complained to my last year's Art teacher and her husband, who is the head of the department (who apparently they both really DISLIKE her but don't want to say anything). I've complained to my head of year and she said that she's probably trying to organise my work more, but to have a discussion with her and if she still continues, to go back and complain once more.
On top of that, we went for a trip to a few Art museums and stopped at Burger King, and she had the cheek to make a comment about my order claiming it was 'a huge order'. I'm sorry, but that implied a weight remark to me!
I really don't know what to do... I barely have any artwork that's worth submitting. Sorry for the long story!
Omg what a little B with an itch! You seriously need to get your parents involved. Or just say it to her face. She needs to know she has no right to treat you like this. Also talk to your head of sixth form he/she would know what to do. Whenever I have a teacher I have a problem with I just go to him. But seriously don't let this go on because if it does that sket is going to ruin your A levels for you and you don't want that! just do anything even request a different teacher if you have to! Hope this helped (you don't deserve any of what she does to you!)

Soon as I tell my Mum, she's writing letters, ringing school and demanding an apology. And 99% of the time I've gotten one So might be worth your while getting your parents involved should such incidents happen again.
I also wouldn't advise saying something yourself, don't want you getting into trouble for...abusing a staff member, not matter how justified.
I hope every improves
Why don't you make a formal complaint to the school and if that doesn't do anything go to the education authority. Until anything is done go to the other teacher for advise about your work rather than her.
I hope every improves
