Me or I? My third grade teacher corrected the title on my paper “All About my Family and I” to say “All About my Family and me” Which is correct?

“All About My Family and Me” is correct. The technical reason is that the word ‘about’, which is a preposition, takes an objective pronoun. ‘Me’ is an objective pronoun, while ‘I’ is a subjective pronoun.

In plainer language, pretend that the title of your paper was a simple sentence. It could read like this: This paper is all me. You wouldn’t say “This paper is all about I,” and you don’t say it when you change the sentence to a title and add the part about your family.
