Hi. I'm 17 years old and in high school.I've had problems with one of my teachers lately and have even seen the school counsellor about these problems. He is obsessive towards me and is very over-protective. He sometimes scares me. This year had gone out of control. I could not deal with him anymore so I slipped up and told him that I hate him. We(he and I) talked to the principal about the situation and my counseller helped me through the year. He and I sorted out oour differences or so I thought until, he completely ignored me then the next week he tried to keep one of my friends away from me. Now he just keeps getting worse. We are friends one week, the next week he does not speak to me at all, then the next week he won't stop talking to me.
I have told my parents but they regard it as a teenage problem and refuse to help. He is making me feel depressed, the weeks he ignores me I have no idea what I did wrong and worry that he is going to send me to the principal again. On the other hand he scares me when he keeps me in his class to talk to him, he tends to have violent outbursts in class and I worry that if I upset him when we are alone he may get violent.He does get jealous if I talk to other teachers and considers me his star. The principal feels I should stay in his class as changing classes would be a hassle and cause a scandal.
I do not know what to do at this point. I cannot go to my parents or the principal. My teacher is becoming more obsessive and my emotions are going haywire. Please help.
