Okay, this whole post makes me think you are only looking for praise, and not really interested in growing as a writer.
How are we "overly critical"? I know not every post on this board is sunshine and rainbows, but I think the majority of people here are very helpful and give people constructive criticism when it is needed. It sounds to me like you don't even want that, like you're writing us off as big meanies if we dare to have the slightest criticism. Really, "no hating, I already turned it in"? Way to put those walls up.
Oh, and I'm not making the connection between your teacher publishing five novels, and you having talent. I've heard people say this before, and...it doesn't make any sense. Now, that's not to say you don't have any talent at all - in fact, I think you could be a good writer if you are willing to work on it- but just because your teacher has been published and has given you positive feedback, that doesn't mean anyone who says differently is wrong. After all, there are A LOT of mediocre published authors out there (Stephenie Meyer, anyone?).
Bottom line: you don't have to take our advice, but it would be nice if you were at least open to it. We can be tough, but we are not mean. Just my two cents.
