Hello, So I'm currently a senior in high school and I want to major in physics. I was really excited to start Honors Physics this year and meet my teacher. When I met him, I told him how I wanted to be an experimental physicist; he replied saying, "That's cool". Since then, things have not been going so well. He's always laughing and talking with the other kids, however, he seems to have something against me. He always has a disappointed look when talking to me, and when I ask him for help, he tells me to figure it out or that I "should know it". He also knows that I was diagnosed with severe ADHD and OCD, yet he doesn't acknowledge my deficiencies and struggles. He's a total jerk. I've thought about it for weeks and I think I know why. Now, of course, this is just my speculating. I'm not saying this is the true reason. He told the class that he majored in physics and that he always loved it, however, why didn't he proceed to a Ph.D. and become a...well, physicist? Now obviously it could just be that he loves teaching, but it could also be that something prevented him from going on to graduate school (financial issues, rejected from schools, etc.). If that is the case then it's possible that he is jealous of me, right? He's jealous that I might achieve his failed dream. Am I just making a huge assumption? Of course this whole thing sounds kind of cliche and ridicolous, but the reason I ask is because it's affecting my grades. He won't help me or acknowledge my special needs. Let me know what you guys think. I would really appreciate it.
