“20 years ago, we had to make a diorama.  We all had them sitting on tables in the classroom, and one day, some other kid was messing around, fell onto the table and smashed mine. I failed the assignment for having a smashed diorama.”

“Yelled at me to stop talking when I wasn’t saying anything. Then a student says it was them, and she said no, it wasn’t. What the hell?

It was 6th-grade art class.”

HUMILIATED ME IN FRONT OF EVERYONE

“Grade 5. He read our scores from a math test in front of the class. I had one of the worst marks, maybe the worst.  

Humiliate me in front of everyone. Way to instil confidence in your students.”

BACKPEDALED ON WHAT SHE TAUGHT US

“In 3rd grade, we learned about planets and how they each have different lengths of years. One thing that stuck with me was when the teacher said a year on Mercury was about three months, so you would technically be older there than on Earth. Our next assignment was to create an alien character from a planet in our solar system. I decided to make my dude a 200-year-old alien from Mercury. I failed the assignment because ‘aliens don’t live that long’. So I tried to tell her that he’d only be 50 on Earth and she said ‘That makes no sense’. Like, you just taught this an hour ago!”

“Gave me a failing grade in Debate just because my views differed from his. He forced us to watch The Passion Of The Christ in class (he went to a private school) and didn’t allow us to opt-out. My dad succeeded in getting him fired.”

“In 7th grade, my awful teacher made me remove my hoodie because she didn’t think it was cold. I was very large-chested despite being very petite and was a victim of SA regularly at home, so I wore the hoodie to hide my body. I even told her after class once that I was more comfortable with my hoodie on, and she told me to deal with it.”

SHE WAS WAY TOO HARD ON THE ENTIRE CLASS

“Physics teacher was way too hard on the entire senior class. Tons of kids went and complained about her. The principal fired her. I’m salty about the whole situation. The kids handled it poorly. She handled us poorly. The principal handled it poorly. The whole thing was a stupid show. We ended up getting some ‘fill-in’ teachers for the second half of the year and just basically did crossword puzzles and watched movies. This was 23 years ago.” 

MADE US GET DETENTION FOR “DISOBEYING A TEACHER”

“She decided we were too noisy assembling in the yard at the end of recess, so after marching us to the classroom, she opened the door and stepped aside, and once enough of us were inside, she declared that she had not told us to come in – we all got detention for ‘disobeying a teacher’.” 

IGNORED ME BEING BULLIED

“Completely ignored me being bullied for my sexuality. She was a religious nut. I remember her talking about how she gave her dogs a wedding because she wanted her kids to believe they should wait to be married before having intimacy.” 

SHE ENGAGED IN BLATANT EXTORTION

“The chemistry teacher wouldn’t let us leave to get our goggles; if we didn’t have our goggles, we couldn’t experiment, and we’d get a zero; we would, however, be allowed to rent goggles from her for like a dollar—blatant extortion. 

The joke’s on her; her cancer came back, and I passed the class because she had to leave.” 

HE FOUGHT ME BECAUSE OF SANDWICH CRUMBS

“My sixth-grade homeroom teacher hated me. One day, I had a sandwich for breakfast, and I guess I had crumbs on my face. He pointed it out with this smirk and insisted I had to go to the cafeteria for a napkin. I had severe social anxiety and told him I didn’t want to. He fought me until I got up and did it.” 

THEY WERE RACIST TO ME

“My grade 8 French teacher made me stand in front of the class and say ‘I am a chocolate bar’ in French. And yes, I’m of the chocolate-colored human variety.” 

SNATCHED MY BAG OF CHIPS

“Went to a new school in the 8th grade and got super excited they had a vending machine in the cafeteria. So I bought myself a bag of chips to eat with my lunch, only for a teacher to snatch that stuff away and say the vending machine was for teachers, only proceeded to eat my chips. It’s been almost 20 years, and I’m still annoyed.”
