I had a shrew of a second grade teacher. This was the main teacher trying to "train" me into being right handed. I had a progress report sent home my first 6 weeks. (In DISD, you only got a progress report if you were in danger of failing.) My parents asked me about it and I replied "She won't take my work if she thinks I did it with my left hand, only if I did it with my right hand." Parents set up a meeting with the teacher and the teacher confirms that all work must be done with the "correct" dominant hand. My parents try to get her to relent because I am natively left handed and have been since birth, but she was of the old school of thought that believed lefties don't actually exist. So my parents went to the principal and suddenly I was allowed to be left handed, so long as I at least tried to be right handed.
