3. The boy went to the teacher's room to be disciplined by his homeroom teacher.

4. The boy went to the teachers' room to be disciplined by his homeroom teacher.

(Which one is correct?)

  1. Writeacher

    Sentences 1 and 2 are fine.

    3 is fine if there's only one teacher who uses that room. If you're referring to a room that all the teachers use at one time or another, then 4 is correct.
