Do you get frowned upon for being a quiet person?

Do you get frowned upon for being a quiet person?

I'm quite soft spoken and find it difficult to speak up in class for example 

I get certain people including teachers dislike me for this reason

This makes it more difficult for me to come out of my shell and be more expressive 

I try to be aware if I'm judging myself for this trait of mine, today i had another situation where I failed to speak up and contribute, I noticed feeling down as a result 

What would be your advice for someone who wants to express more but at the same time, I don't want to be coming from a neurotic place where I'm trying to change myself just because I should be a certain way. There are situations I genuinely want to speak up but struggle. 

And I want to not let others' judgements or preconceived ideas about me hold me back or make it more difficult for me to express. Their expectations just stress me the hell out though and I end up retreating into my shell :) 

I must've been a tortoise in another life ;D
