Writer's Block: Life's lessons

If you could confront the worst teacher you've ever had, what would you tell him or her?
Hmmm, maybe it was the 8th grade teacher who tried changing my math homework, erasing my real answers and adding in wrong ones, so that she could give me D's and F's. I showed the papers to my mom, who confronted her. Gee, she had no idea how that happened. It didn't happen any more after I started going over the answers in pen.

Or maybe it was the Principal and Counselor at my high school who actually changed my TRANSCRIPTS in the office, so that they could give the outstanding student award to my academic rival, in exchange for a sweet real estate deal for his dad... Oh, how could that have happened? Good thing it was discovered, or it would have hurt my ability to get into college.

What would I say?

Guess what, scum? Living well is the best revenge. I ACED my college math classes, did well, and got a good job in tech. I've been making good money being a good writer and understanding high technology for decades. You tried to sabotage me, and you failed! You may have created a local scandal, but didn't get fired, but you didn't prosper. And the kid you gave the award to? He flunked out of college, and has done badly in life. I've done pretty well for myself. So I can PITY the lot of you!
