What would you do if you were in my shoes? Have you faced similar situations, which tried to let you down?? Recently I came across an incident. I'm a student who was able to score well last year in the shool, and this is my final year. My literature teacher used to llike me a lot. Since I was busy with the target of making our language day a success, I was unable to score that much (highest) for the last term test, my teacher was upset but motivated me. Anyway someone had told so many lies about me to my teacher, she has guessed it to be the reason for my average mark. When my teacher asked, I knew the person who did it exactly. But I don't really care about her. But it hurts me inside for some reason. What would you do if you were in my shoes? Have you faced similar situations?

I think you should be honest with the teacher.  Teachers are not monsters, and we're not robots.  You can talk to your teacher and explain the situation.  Ask for the teacher's advice.  If you are humble and honest, most teachers would be happy to help.

Have you talked to your teacher about what you feel has been said about you? It is possible that your teacher did not hear the things that you believe have been said, or that the teacher heard these things but did not give them any credence. 

If your term is over, however, and you have no more time with this teacher, maybe it is best to talk to a friend and move on.
