That time when Raven actually said what most of us want to say to a teacher who picks you for the answer when you clearly don’t know it, for usually no other reason than to embarrass you and make you look stupid. One of the main things I hate and always will hate about school. 

I had a math teacher in high school - a dried up, bitter old lady - and she knew I was bad at math because I had her twice. She would constantly call on me throughout the year, and when I couldn’t do the problem she would sigh and say, “Is this really that hard to divide/multiply, etc?” Or the worst one was, “You did this in middle school, Alyssa. Even middle schoolers can do this.” 

At the end of the semester she had moved me to the front row, directly beside where she sat all class at the projection thing. She thought moving me closer to the board would help me see better. Lady, it wasn’t a sight problem. It was a “I struggle a lot with math” problem.
