Poor Agnes, her teacher sounds nasty.
I'd schedule a meeting with the Principal and ask she be moved into a different class. I would not want her staying with that teacher even if the teacher is pulled into line. She has a major attitude problem and I don't see that changing even if she stops the overtly offensive behaviour.
I have no problem with being strict, per se. But what you've described sounds like more than just strict. I've had strict teachers who still clearly loved teaching and nurtured their kids. Labelling kids like 'messy girl' is so far over the acceptable line. Its not strict, its downright cruel.
Good luck with talking to the Principal/teacher.

From a students perspective, I had a teacher like this about 25 years ago, last year my friends little girl was going through a similar experience, and I sympathized and told her my story which was so eerily similar... Turns out it's the same teacher 25 years later! In my day (god I sound old) parents didn't question teachers, but maybe if they did this teacher wouldn't still be reigning terror over 7 year olds. You are doing the right thing by dealing with this, i hope you get a good outcome

I agree with everyone else either speak to the teacher or the principle.
I had issues with DD and spoke to the teacher just this week.
I was honest but polite told her I though DD was not being treated fairly given the amount of effort she has put in a certain area. Problem was sorted in 1 day.
However it was nowhere near what you have described.
That is just not on!

I admire you!! I am so overprotective I would prob keep ds at home until they sorted her out! Its good you have it all in like a list, so you are much more organised for a meeting. It might have been asked before but do you have contact to other parents in the class? Tyey might have the same issue?

As a teacher I'd appreciate any concerns come my way first - however she does sound a little over the top.
In regards to the nickname ... I find that sad. I myself have a joke around with the kids - eg. In year 2 one of the little girls we called Miss Tumble because she would just about fall over the carpet... She loved it though... Even to this day if she sees me she'll tell me a funny fall story. It was never said in a derogatory way though - more like 'not again you silly billy'.
I hope you can feel at ease with this teacher soon. I can't imagine it's a good feeling.

Poor Agnes!! I'd big switching classes, she sounds like she could get very nasty and sly about how she puts down Agnes after this all comes and I'd hate to risk that.

Poor girl that's not right, school should be a positive and happy time.
I think you should set up a meeting with the principal and the teacher to discuss the situation. I also think changing classes would be something to consider too.
Hope everything works out for you all
