I Deserve an "A+" and by DAMN I'm getting an "A-"

This past week I have been on the phone frantically trying to get a hold of my professor who taught my dreadful "Child Guidance" class! I hated this class, but it was needed for my degree. I had to take a full year of this class. The first class was bearable, this second class was unbearable, but I was getting it done and out of the way. The class consisted of two one hour long class periods a week, and then a three hour block at the SUU Preschool. However, the grade I received was a FREAKING "B" and I surely did not deserve that. In fact, one day in class my teacher told me that I was the only one in the class who had never missed a day, and yet, I didn't like the class. She thought that was odd, since she had several girls who were going into this field who would rarely show up.

Calling my teacher - which took a whole week; I was able to talk to her and ask her as to why I would receive a "B" in this class. When I never missed a class, was never late, I turned in all my work promptly and always very well put together, and I put more then was needed into my STUPID final project. After she made some phone calls she called me back with the news that I did indeed deserve an "A-," YA THINK, which I still think I should get an "A+," but I'm not going to complain because it's better than a "B." What happened is that Emily, the "Director" of the preschool said I only deserved a "B" because I missed two of the preschool labs - FOR THE RECORD, I DID NOT, even though I wanted too. Emily also said that my lesson plans were turned in late, and she said that I didn't interact well with the children! Who does she think she is! What did I ever do to her to make her want to give me a "B!" Granted I didn't care for the kids, but it never showed until after they left the preschool, and I always had something to say about those rug rats. AND AGAIN, for the RECORD I was never late, nor missed a day of that dreaded preschool! As for my assignments - one was a day late, but we still had a week until we taught.

Long story SHORT - you know it never will be with me....It definitely doesn't hurt to ask!!!!

I was worried from the title that you got an A- and were calling the teacher to complain about that. It would've been a good way to get on the professor's bad side...

Stupid class to take anyway when you're going into SECONDARY ed. You deserve an A+ just for taking that class.
