Here's the thing OP, your letter is well-worded, but completely devoid of substance. If all you're bitching about is harsh punishments for multiple infringements of the rules and basic principles of respect, then you have no argument here. She may handle things badly, but you really are retarded, immature high school sophomores who have no business defying her authority, no matter how much you believe it is fundamentally right. You are students, and she is your teacher. Your job is to get your work in and not break the rules, not judge her and disrespect her. Maybe if you all just quit being such little bitches and just do what you're fucking told and quit the (incredibly cliche) "rebellious teen" shit, you'd have a nicer teacher.
Unless I'm missing something. You really didn't say anything but give us an immature rundown of how highschool respect is given and gained. What exactly did she do to piss you off?
