OK what i written above is what I would do if these things happened one at time.
In combination I would make a urgent a appointment with the principal and take with your written formal complaint for him/her and a copy of the one you have written to the board of education. Make sure you mention all the things in both letters so they can see it a pattern of abuse not a one of thing.

I have written, requesting an appointment with someone other than her teacher.
I am scared of her!!!!! she is so scary.
The most annoying thing is, we have just moved house and her school is 20 mins drive away..we had THE best teacher last year!
I am so bummed that this year is not working out so well.

I would change her out of this class asap. I had a teacher in grade 3 who sounds exactly like her. Luckily it was only for a term as they needed a relieving teacher. She use to say "kids feel special with a nickname" when asked about it by parents and other teachers, but her nicknames were smelly, short, fatty, messy hair, etc for all the kids. I ended up being very anxious with this teacher, as did other kids as I remember quite a few peeing their pants that term which wasn't normal. It wasn't even anything horrifying, but it was the same kind of story. Just the teacher in general acting as though we were all annoying, and being a rude person in general. She also did the name on the board thing with no reason for it. You wouldn't even sometimes see your name until it had a line through it... which was the second warning. It doesn't "sound" bad, but it was bad to experience for us as children that age. She shouldn't be a teacher, and it sounds like Agnes's teacher is the same.
Are there choices in classes/teachers/schools?

Working in education and schools i believe you really need to raise your issues with the teacher directly first, if you are unhappy with this then you can take it to the AP or principal. Problems with teachers can almost always be resolved by communicating your issues. I think you have reasons to speak to the teacher on everything except what she chooses to have for lunch.

She does sound like a hard ****. Someone I would be scared of too. However people like this tend to act this way because they get away with it because no one says anything to them.
I would talk to her. I understand the lunch thing isn't so much what she is eating, although I a pretty sure they should be modelling eating healthy foods maybe even as a part of their contract??? However the fact that she hides the food is what makes it bad.
The mssy girl thing is just horrible, to be totally honest I would want my child moved out of her class regardless of who is spoken to or what what she has to say.

In the past I have spoken directly to teachers, and been met with a belligerent "I'm in charge" "I've done nothing wrong" kind of attitude. I'm over it. If a teacher has a problem with power trips as it sounds Agnes' teacher has, then the only thing she respects is superiors, not Mums.
If she is 'scary' there is very little chance she's going to hear you out fairly.
This morning I have written an email to my sons teacher outlining my concerns, and I cc'ed a copy to the Principal.
Cut to the chase. If they are not doing their job properly, then the Principal needs to know.
Good on you.

You could talk to the teacher/principle to sort the problems out but really, I think this is more ingrained in the teacher as a person so I'm not sure its something that could be "fixed".
What would I do? I'd be speaking to the principle- trying to correct my childs thought process, and also asking for her to be moved to another class as I can't see this situation turning into a positive for your daughter. How heartbreaking.
