    My teacher was picking on me as usual by asking me lots of questions and getting me to participate in classroom discussion and I thinks she knows I don't like to.
    She then continued saying 'what...' In a pensive tone as if she was going to continue what she was saying but then she paused and left me hanging. I got angry as I felt as though she was trying to intimidate me by deliberately picking on me so i responded firmly saying 'what?!' As in what do you mean what? She didn't reply and kept looking down at her notes. I looked at the girl next to me and she turned around to me and said she looks upset. Still the teacher didn't say anything and continued to look down at her notes. I felt bad and checked her facial expression, she didn't look upset but she looked like she knew I had answered her. She then proceeded to ask me something .
    Does this sound like she was picking on me to intimidate me
    Not picking on me intentionally and just hadn't finished what she was saying or

    You analyse things too deeply. Just forget about it. The teacher is probably on her period or something.
