IWSG: Feedback

I thought this would be the perfect time to bring up my problem with feedback. I recently had two incidences with this that contradicted each other.

Let's start with the bad one first. I was writing a speech, and one of the older students ripped RIPPED apart. Things that I thought were fine were terrible to her. Furthermore, she had me practice it in front of other people, and then they wrote down strengths and weaknesses in my speech. The weaknesses were all different, and they were also things that I'd worked on. It was infuriating!

On the bright side, I got a paper back today in English. The grade was good, but the teacher wrote "You are a talented writer." I ask you, who should I believe: some girl, or a teacher?!
