    Yes; yes it should be capitalised! I think you should slap her with a book, preferably something large and heavy.
    Like the Oxford English Dictionary, and then she may hopefully read it upon waking.

    I shudder to think how many students she's told this along the way, if of course this (the thread) isn't another fine example of trolling!

    I was alway lead to belive there was a Capital I in I'm and I've and so on. My english teacher said this is not the case. She said you should only use Capital I in I'm or I've at the start of a sentence.
    Some student's argued this not to be true.
    Please tell me she's been fired?

    Or burned by a thousand burning coals?

    Bloody hell...

    I used to have an English teacher who couldn't spell to save her life, had a bunch of crazy ideas about grammar, and insisted "puzzle" was spelt "puzzel", and "syllable" was "syllabul". Led to a very funny moment when she stormed angrily to the dictionary, found the word, put the book back silently and never mentioned it again.

    The class got in really bad trouble for taking the mick out of her... eventually she had a break-down and cried to us about how parents had complained. Ah, the good old days of Year 9.

    I think your English teacher is incorrect and talking a load of rubbish. Spell checker also agrees with your theory.

    I think the amount of spelling and grammatical errors in this topic is laughable, people claiming she's wrong, yet you can't spell basic words?

    I've never used a capital I in 'I'm' or 'I've' before in the middle of a sentence and it was never seen as wrong.
    Is it possible that both a capital I and a lower case I may be correct?

    You always use a capital I for that. Always.

    Oh and students (the plural of student) does not contain an apostrophe.
