    ALSO
    She averted her gaze from the teacher (in a rude way) (in an annoying way) (rudely) (annoyingly) to show that she had taken a dilike to him.

    She averted her gaze from the teacher
    This sounds strange. Her gaze or the teacher's gaze? Who was gazing at whom?

    Shouldn't it be -

    She averted the teacher's gaze....

    not teacher

    She averted her gaze from the teacher.

    her ≠ the teacher
    her = She (you can't avert others' gaze) --> she = her

    avert your eyes = turn away

    I was thinking the teacher was gazing at her and she was trying to avoid it.
    Doesn't makes sense that she was gazing (her gaze) at him when she dislikes him.

    She averted her gaze from the teacher to show she does not like him.

    She looked away because she wanted to show she does not like the teacher (he), that she does not like him.

    The three she's are coreferent and the two red words are coreferent too.

    When you get angry with sy, you turn away, right? Is it not obvious?
