  1. Good morning Michael,

    Here are my answers.
    1. She was very mean to all of the students. She was always yelling and screaming at everyone.
    2. I think he appreciates her strong discipline.

    My second daughter often says “That’s mean!” when I scold her.

      1. My second grade teacher had wooden sticks (kind of hockey sticks) and hit us with them on the butts… Furthermore, the art teacher was making those wooden sticks and displayed some of them in school entrance hall as his works… OMG.
