Is beginning a sentence with a preposition considered bad writing?


In college, I have been given conflicting information regarding this topic. I personally love to begin sentences with words like and, but, or...I think there are right and wrong ways to do it. Yet some professors still mark it as ungrammatical in my papers. what do you guys think?

    I apologize for this pretty stupid answer. I had not read the question properly and had assumed it was about ENDING a sentence with a preposition! Lesson is, never answer questions on Hubpages when you are half asleep!
