If it's a potential abuse situation, DEFINITELY tell your teacher or another trusted adult. If you're depressed (whether or not you're suicidal), DEFINITELY tell a parent. If you were engaged in substance abuse, it might be fine to tell. At my school, if you confess to doing drugs, you sign a contract that says that you'll never do it again, and if you do, you'll be in big trouble. Apparently, students like this because it actually gives them a great way to say no to drugs, in terms of peer pressure. I think that, if it was a case of alcohol abuse, than she wouldn't have to tell. If you're tempted to engage in substance abuse, she could be very helpful and most likely wouldn't have to tell. If it's a bullying issue, definitely tell. If it's anything serious, consider telling a parent first. If you trust your teacher, it will probably be okay. Make sure to get help no matter what. Since you feel the desire ask for it, you DEFINITELY should. Don't keep it a secret.

I know of at least two teachers that I could confide in if I ever needed to. It really depends on the relationship you have with your teacher. If this teacher needs to tell someone else, that means that they are being responsible and not trying to tattle on you.

Teachers, I would never tell them anything secretive. I wouldn't tell anyone anything secretive unless I know there is no way for it to get back to the other person or people.

Ooooh if that ever happened to me, I would definitely not tell one of my teacher about that. But that's probably because I don't like my teachers
