My teacher told me to leave school and get a job instead!

by Rakiya
(Cheshire, England)

After I did my GCSE exams I left school and went to Wirral Grammar 6th form, where I was doing my A'levels. I was struggling a little in the chemistry lessons. My attendance was poor and I struggled to do the classwork let alone the homework.


Wirral Grammar prides itself on grades and performance. If I get a low grade then it would bring the school down with shame. After one particular lesson, my chemistry teacher told me it would be best if I leave and get a job. I was so upset. Get a job doing what exactly? Picking rubbish up off the floor, cleaning the toilets?

I left. I left to go to the local college. Then I went to University to do a degree in Maths. Then I went back again to do an MSc in Maths.

I would love to rub my certificate in her face now. Not only is it uncommon for someone to have a Masters Degree in maths, but highly uncommon for a woman to have one. I was the only lady in the class out of 15.

My lesson to everyone...don't let anyone pull you down, even if it is an educator who is doing it!

good NEW
by: Blacian

I was lucky enough to experience something similar during my school days. One of my classmates was so good at math that our teacher told him that he has learnt enough its time you put it to use. It was something that I would not have thought about but he did and I hope he has made it in life.

Math Teacher NEW
by: Tammy Lisa

It is very unethical to say such words like your teacher said to you. She had no right to humiliate students like this. But the good thing is you took it positively and work hard to achieve your goals. Lesson is never give up hope and work hard you will get anything you want. I was not good in assignments but was the high grader in class because of uk best essays. So you can also utilize their services.
