An English teacher at McKinley High School (city unknown) found a letter from one of her students taped to the door of the classroom, according to a posting on Reddit.

The 101-word letter was full of grammatical and spelling errors, and also contained curse words and name calling directed at the teacher.

And how did the teacher respond?

By correcting all of the student’s mistakes.

The teacher went through and sliced and diced the letter in red marker, noting everything from not having a date to not indenting the signature line to a comma splice.

And at the bottom, the teacher had one last smackdown for the student by writing: “*Please use your education appropriately. Proofreading takes five minutes & keeps you from looking stupid.*”


See the letter below. Note: Some readers might find some of the language offensive.
