    Default I had been a subject prefect

    Hi, teachers,

    Could you pls check if the follow sentence is correct :

    1. I had been a subject prefect every year at my primary school, so I don't want to be
    a subject prefect again.
    (that means from P.1 to P.6 i was selected subject prefect ,I want to change start from secondary .)

    The past perfect is a secondary past, which is used relative to another past referance. You only have one past referance in your sentence so the past simple is appropriate (was).

    I'm not a teacher.
