Labeled The Smart Kid In Class Made School Life Difficult

    Jade is 13 years old now and in 8th grade. Somewhere back in 4th or 5th grade, when school work started getting a bit harder, and homework started up, was when she was labeled the smart kid in her class. To her, she just was able to finish faster and do really well, and, honestly, she really didn't like it. Being labeled the smart kid in class made school life difficult.
    First, when you're labeled the smart kid you're expected to do things in class that no one else wants to do. For example, when the teacher says okay class, who can solve this problem, and nobody wants to do it, you can pretty much bet that your name is going to get called. And it's not even really the teachers who call on her in class, it's the other kids calling out and saying hey, Jade can do it, make Jade do it!
    But Jade didn't want to solve the problem in class just as much as the other kids didn't, but nobody seemed to understand that. Other students had envy for her because she was so smart. She would certainly graduate with honors. Just because she might have had a high IQ, that didn't mean she wanted to be treated any differently by her classmates, friends, teachers, or parents.
    Second, cheating. Jade is no angel, or a goody-goody, or anything like that, but she does find it really annoying when she's trying to finish her school work in class and other students are whispering to her to give them the answers, or begging her to let them cheat off her when the questions are hard. Cheaters are just so annoying.
    Third, expectations. The expectation on you when you are labeled the smart kid, or a genius, or whatever, is that you're basically expected to learn and know EVERYTHING! For example, last week she was working with a friend where you do stations, moving from one to the next and completing a project at each. It's not a race, but the other students treat it like one. And so there were two boys who got ahead of them in the stations, and one of them says Oh wow, I thought she was supposed to be smarter than that.
    And fourth, born a baby genius. Everybody thinks, even her friends and best friends, that just because she's smart she doesn't work hard to do well or to learn. The other students treat her like everything is easy and that she can just hang around all the time and just get good grades or get on the honor roll just by being who she is. They think she doesn't try hard, which she does, and that she doesn't feel the enormous pressure she and maybe even her parents, and teachers, put on her.
    So, when you label someone the smart kid, just remember that they're trying their hardest too, and most likely, other than the fact that they scored a little better on their test, they are just exactly like you!

    i can totally relate when i was on ninth grade all my classmates were like i don’t get it why do you even study i bet you would a hundred percent even if you didn’t and they would always ask to copy from me even my friends would do that and make fun of me. now that i moved to another school with gifted students it is a lot better but you know what’s really shocking? teachers there just expect us to know everything about everything and their excuse would always be you’re the gifted students you have to be a lot smarter than the rest of the kids at school like seriously 😒

    I am smart... But I don't really have any expectations or people cheating off my test. My intelligence is at best in Animal Facts, and Reading. I teach even teachers some dinosaur facts they didn't even know... But I'm a kid, so don't expect much from me, I'm still stupid, only smart for my age.

    This is like me. one time, my friend was asking everyone if they did their homework and when he got to me he said: "did you do your homework? of course you did" and then he moved on, and another time my other friend said "Man, I probably got an F on this" and I said "yah, me too, it was really hard and I guessed on almost all of them." And then, she ended up getting an F and I got an A+ and she glared at me.

    I'm a "smart kid" and there's people who are always asking for answers. And when there's something I don't get, people are like "Ur smart, why don't you get it I mean, isent this easy for you, ya know being smart an all." And sometimes that gets on my last nerve. Like if the "non smarties" are allowed to not get something is there a rule that "smart kids" of the class aren't allowed to? I mean common sense people!!! It srsly gets annoying 😒😒😒😤😭😭🙄🙄🙄😐😐😐😒😒😒.

    This happens to me in English. Once my teacher wasn't in the classroom and we were writing a test, while I was writing mine, a girl took it and copied it all. She only did it because the teacher said we could leave after we finish. To be completely honest, I always get embarrassed when someone says I'm the best at English. I don't know why, but it happens a lot.

    My tamil teacher makes it much harder
    She always says that i did not study and that i did not write anything correct in my paper
    But it was the only exam i had studied for more than 6 hours
    And that teacher saying i did not study at all
    Made me think
