Top 10 Worst Kinds of Teachers
Just yesterday in tech it was my first time using a soldering iron and we had a really mean teacher instructing us. I was holding the wire and then flinched because the wire was so hot and I felt my hand being burnt. She barked at me "Your hand is so far up the wire there's no way it feels hot!" She's just really cranky and mean all the time and whenever I asked her for something she would just snap at me and act like I should've already known how to do something I had never learnt before.
I hate these kind of teachers. My Math and Science teacher screamed at the class today about being in a straight line and we're in 7th grade so we're 12 and 13 years old. She was asking us how teenagers are supposed to act and I said disrespectful, because you know teenagers aren't known for good behavior and she sent me to the office! She will also literally give us homework about stuff she hasn't even thought us, like for example she gave us a 200 question math packet that was 16 pages front and back and we only had 3 days to do it and she didn't teach us any of the math in the packet. She noticed that my class talks a lot in line when we switch classes so she makes us line up in boy-girl boy-girl order in line! what! She still doesn't realize that we still talk in line. Even if we are going to Spanish class which is only 15 feet away from the Math room she will still make us do boy-girl boy-girl order! She is so closed minded that she doesn't realize that it takes longer just for ...more
One of my teachers gets pissed off too much, and that's aggravating, because if you didn't even do anything, he's going to scream at anyone that interrupts his groups. He makes everyone else read Harry Potter over and over again and it's driving me insane because it's the same book and he didn't let me read mine.
So every break I play with my friends on the pc in our class and it never bothers anyone, this this Karen- like teacher (she even had blonde hair) shouted at us to turn it off because it's 'school's property' so next day we play but we close the door so no one csn hear us, then comes us again screaming at us like crazy, she make much more noise than we did.
These teachers are especially annoying in high school. They bombard you with about 2 hours' worth of homework with no consideration to your other classes. This can be especially irritating when the teachers do easy problems with you in class and give you hard ones for homework. This is a lot to ask for considering most students also participate in extracurriculars, volunteer, and have jobs. This keeps many students up until 12, if they're lucky. Some students have been unfortunate enough to go to bed at 2. Plus, many schools start early in the morning, requiring students to wake up at 5 or 6 in the morning in order to arrive on time. Studies have shown that getting 6 hours of sleep has the same effect on the brain as getting no sleep at all. If schools and teachers want students to be successful, they need to give out less homework. Besides, homework is basically work that students have to bring home because the teacher didn't have time to make the students do it in class. This is ...more
What I hate about homework is that we go to school for 7 hours, like that's not enough work to begin with, and we go home and still have work! It takes me at least an hour to do my homework. I'm awake for about 15 hours a day and some days I'm literally doing work for 15 of those hours and sometimes I don't even get all of the homework done after hours of doing it! Then my parents will write a note to my math teacher that I literally was doing work the entire afternoon and evening and she'll get angry!
I hated these the most. Don't they understand that we have homework in OTHER subjects as well, and not just THAT subject!? Also, many students also WORK to support their family!? They need some sleep! Homework is beneficial, and an hour a day is enough, but up to a certain point, it becomes redundant and is just busy work. Or they have an elitist ego and think people who aren't as smart as they are shouldn't be pursuing their field.
The worst thing I hate about homework that we don't get a break! We studied 7 hours long everyday! And teachers is still giving homework to us in weekend! We don't even get a break in One Simple Day! They will continue to give us homework!
We once had a substitute teacher who taught in primary school who was pretty strict. She embarrassed a girl in Year 1 show and tell time when she brought a barbie doll with short clothes barely above the knee and said "In real life, we don't wear clothes like this." And she told everyone that if your clothes were above your knee, that meant you were naked. She said that speech while wearing a short dress that barely grazed her knees. I can remember certain times where her clothes were above her knees and one time, when we knew that she was subbing for our teacher one day, we all remembered to pull our school uniforms above our knee and roll them up in extravagant ways during class. Me and my friend also were wearing short school dresses and when we went on the monkey bars, we lifted up our arms which made our clothes "above the knee" while the teacher was watching from the bench, in a displeased way.
So one time, I was doing my work in science class. My phone was in my hoodie pocket, and while I was working, the phone slipped out. And she just took it and put it in "phone jail", and I couldn't get it back until the end of class. Get this, I didn't do anything. The phone ACCIDENTALLY fell out, and it got confiscated. Outside, I was calm, but in my mind I was very mad. She was extremely strict on phones, and that's why I don't like her. Teachers like her suck.
Student: Excuse me? I'm not feeling very well. May I go call home?
Student: Please? I'm really sick!
Teacher: Because I'm the adult here! You're just a kid.
Student: Fine, I'll just throw up all over your room then!
Later, the teacher sees the same student's head down.
Student: Seriously? I told you I was sick!
Teacher: I don't care! Detention, now!
My high school special ed teacher is really strict. She has rules that tell us what to do and what NOT to do or say that are just plain STUPID!
Don't say "horse", don't use the bathroom, watch baby shows, no drawing, do kindergarten work, do this, don't do that, blah blah blah, etc... SO ANNOYING! >:(
This dumb kid in my 3rd grade class did that to us. The teacher put a timer for when we were allowed to go to recess. We were in the classroom by the way. She had to repeatedly reset the timer and put 5 more minutes each time, because all the kids were talking and being goofy. So the teacher said, "2 more minutes until recess." And at the last minute, this dumb kid got up out of his seat. He went to this other kids' seat, and said "Can I have my markers back? " We all yelled at him so hard. He said, "What?." The teacher was mean for doing that to us too.
Yeah it's super annoying! It's like if a guy was killed then arresting the murderer and everyone who lived in the same neighborhood as the murderer and sending the to jail too! I know the comparison is very extreme, but that's just how I see it.
My Spanish teacher deducted 1 participation point from the whole class if a couple people were being loud, and I never talked. How's that fair to me?!?!
In year 7, every single student (including the nice ones) was kept in during recess because some idiot kept distracting the class.
Student #1: My math teacher is horrible!
Student #2: *Looks behind him to see the same teacher following them* Uh... Dude, you might wanna look behind you.
Student #1: *Looks* Excuse me, have you been following us this whole time?
Teacher: Yep, detention, both of you, now! Hop two three four!
Student #2: Me? What did I do?
Teacher: You're hanging out with him!
Student #2: So you're gonna put me in detention for being friends with someone you don't like?
Student #2: Wow! Now I see why he hates you!
This isn't stalking, but my math teacher was looking directly at me whenever I was getting lunch.
Um, I think you mean we stalk teachers. That's what me and my friends do sometimes.
Mrs. Lamb and Miss Stone were always on my ass
My Year 7 Science teacher, you know who you are. Commented on a girl in my class's photo for something that had a heart filter around it and said "Lovely!". I always felt like he went after young girls.
Who is letting their little kids on the internet to have "ugly" teachers be higher than this?
How is this not #1? This is physical danger, not just getting yelled at.
This should be number one obviously.
I think it's unfair to judge someone by their outside but my seventh grade English teacher was really boring, so I think of her as ugly on the inside.
It actually depends. I had an old teacher in elementary school and she was very mean. She dragged me down the halls! My high school chorus teacher was old and she was strict but she was very nice.
My arabic teacher is very old and I hate him. he fell on his head once and now he has brain problems.
My art teacher is really old and constantly yells at everyone.
I can tell by looks which teacher is mean, and which is nice.
Math teacher. Every Wednesday and Friday we write a test but I actually enjoy it because I normally get the highest.
Teacher: Today we're gonna do a test.
Teacher: No one asked for your opinion! *Hands out tests*
The next day...
Teacher: Who's ready for a test?
Student #1: But we just did a test!
Teacher: Yeah, we're doing another one!
Student #1: Seriously?
Teacher: Uh... Yeah, seriously! I'm the teacher, so if you can't accept that, then you can just go to the office!
I've said this on a lot of the items on this list, but once again, Science.
My math teacher gives a test almost every thursday!
In my maths class when I was doing GCSE, I basically taught myself the maths I needed. I guess they weren't dumb in the subject, but they were dumb enough to not teach me what I needed to know! (small school so varied abilities)
Happened in science too. A terms worth of teaching thrown away because my teacher didn't know what he was doing, so I had to teach myself.
This one. Is annoying. Weird disturbing clothes. And seems caring about you but actually does not at all. A teacher I know is so dumb! She spills out evidence with body language that relates to "I don't care you are boring".
My Math teacher who was also my English teacher, said that she can't teach spelling. That was true because on EVERY TEST, there was a misspelled word on EVERY question.
My teacher literally said that our class "did a 160 degree flip". Does she not know that there are 360 degrees in a circle?
OH MY GOD. Theatre. Is the opitamy of BAD in this. I've heard so many stories and even have my own experience that I won't get into. But GOOD LORD. When it's obvious,it's obvious.
OH. MY. GOD. My career teacher would treat a girl in my class better than anyone else in the entire school. She'd let her go on her phone, talk to other students, you name it. Would she let me do that? HELL NO!
My high school special ed teacher was racist! I was the ONLY ASIAN KID in her class at the time, and she ALWAYS gets me in trouble for no reason at all. She NEVER does that to the other kids. ONLY ME.
Geography teacher. The thing is the fact that he never gave me a detention, but he never acknowledges my behaviour, he acknowledges my best friends behaviour though.
My teacher once made me sit at a desk facing the side wall in the classroom where everyone could see, just because I was talking to my friend during class. Another time, we had a teacher that would let us get away with everything and I sat next to my other friend during class, while two other girls sat next to each other, without him noticing for the entire class period. The next period, we had him for a double period and the teacher that made me face the wall came into the classroom briefly and caught me sitting next to my friend at the wrong desk. He then told me to go back and recorded this thing that shows everything you did wrong online. He also told my other two friends to go back and sit where there desks were, but didn't get them in trouble. That is literally picking favourites and humiliating me in front of the entire class.
My science teacher made me tell my test score to him and the entire class and then mocked me because of it. He could care less about hurting your feelings.
I've got this one teacher who will call out a list of students who have not finished their work like 5 times. She all like "These are the students who did not finish their work: Jackson, Kylie, Adrianna, Justin, and Kaylee. Did you hear me? Jackson Kylie, Adrianna, Justin, and Kaylee didn't finish their work. Jackson Kylie, Adrianna, Justin, and Kaylee, you need to be doing your work". Omg! It's like she's trying to humiliate us!
I had this teacher that had a really horrid way to humiliate students...a friend of mine accidentally forgot to get her homework done and GUESS WHAT THE TEACHER DID?! she said "this girl here has forgotten to do their homework, what do we do to people who haven't finished their homework? And everyone seemed to know the answer to that and started saying...BOO BOO to her I didn't because I like keeping quiet my friend went super red and said to me "thanks for not booing at me, *insert my name here...good luck * I really appreated it" I'm really glad she knew I wasn't joining in but guess what happened if I accidentally did not do my homework...she would just tell me that I have a tiny bit more time for me to do it again and sit down, why? because I was her favourite student (which is the best get out of jail free card ever! )
We had a teacher who was arguing with us about what the capital of Australia was.( It's Canberra) The whole class kept saying Canberra and our teacher kept saying Sydney, until she found out that the whole class was right and she was wrong lol. This was in primary school.
Yeah, my English teacher once pronounced island as is-land. I said its pronounced as I-land and the S is silent, and she was like " are you the teacher, you dare correct me blah blah blah"
I know if you try to reasonably tell them why they are wrong and camly and politly tell them how they might be able to avoid the mistake in the future they will yell at you. I once had a math teacher who always called me Brenna even though it's not my name, and I tried correcting her politely, but she just said I was lying and called me Brenna the rest of the year. - _-
That's mean what they do
My 7th and 8th grade orchestra conductor would never let us use the bathroom. Last year, one poor kid asked to go again and again and eventually had to pee himself. There was still 30 minutes left in class and by the end we all knew.
I know this is so annoying! If you don't go to the bathroom you can cause serious problems to your health. I guess teachers don't care if they cause health issues for students!
Student: *Raises hand*
Teacher: Put your hand down!
Student: I'm just asking if I can use the washr-
Student: But I finished my work.
Teacher: Okay? Did you get these next 5 booklets?
Teacher: Did I stutter?
Student: Can I PLEASE go to the washroom? I really have to-
Teacher: I said no, now drop the attitude or I'm failing you!
Miss Dunham hardly let us use the bathroom.
Today my Geography teacher got mad at me for "laughing" when I was barely even smiling. What gave her the impression that I was laughing?
High school special ed teacher. We were just talking to each other during lunch and she thought we were bullying other kids.
Sixth grade math teacher.
My 3rd grade teacher did this to me before. I am and always was a good boy. She was so annoying. I got into a fight in that one grade. The teacher only took his side of the story and immediately gave me detention. Never called my parents about it or anything. The punk detention teacher said he was going to give me 10 day suspension if that happened. That was my first fight of that school year! The school system didn't work like that also.
My high school special ed teacher gets me in trouble for no reason all the time, and I was the ONLY ASIAN in her class! I swear she is racist!
Oh god... My tech teacher hates me. He always calls me out whenever a fairly large group of me and my friends are talking, always asks me for the answer even when I don't know and everyone else is offering to say and he ALWAYS GIVES ME TERRIBLE GRADES!
My sub teacher that picks on all the naughty kids when they are being nice
My 6th grade PE teacher is a bisexual, he looks at girls and boys butts why they are excersising.
My 5th grade teacher was loud, and eventually became my absolute least-favorite teacher in my life.
They talk so loud when your like right their in their face!
All my teachers in 11th grade would always try to fail me because they thought I was really stupid or I had a mental illness. 11th grade sucked for me...
I got suspended after a kid put stuff in my backpack while I wasn't looking. I told them that it wasn't my fault but they were not convinced >:(
Zero tolerance policy
These are awful. Once when I got a test from my most hated class back, it turned out I got a D.
Then, I realised I put exactly what was on the answer key for a few questions but the teacher marked them wrong, so I just acted confused over why I didn't get the marks. She looked at the tests again and it turned out everyone's grades were wrong - in the end she bumped them all up, so I got a B and our overall grades (that were sent out to parents shortly after) were unharmed!
To think everyone could have got in trouble at home thanks to her incompetence (assuming she didn't do it on purpose! ) still makes me shudder to this day.
My online teacher posted a practice test that was optional, but the website marked it as required and it dropped my grade to a 40. I turned the rest of my work on time.
Student: *Arrives 0.0000001 seconds after the bell*
Teacher: Where were you?
Student: I'm sorry, there was a huge group of people in front of me walking really slow.
Teacher: Yeah right. That "huge group of people" are probably your skipping buddies.
Student: What are you talking about? I got here right after the bell!
Teacher: You were supposed to be here BEFORE the bell!
Student: Well, it wasn't my fault, so please stop assuming I was skipping because I have NEVER skipped in my life.
Teacher: Do you wanna fail this class?
Student: What kind of question is that? Of course I don't wanna fail!
Teacher: Well, you're going to if you continue skipping and lying about it!
Student: There are cameras all over the school to show that I clearly wasn't skipping!
Teacher: That's it! You have a 0% in this class!
Student: Seriously? You're going to put my mark all the way down from 85% (made up mark) because I was less than a millisecond late?
Teacher: Yep, ...more
The stereotypical PE teacher who yells like a drill sargent. There's no way I'm going to be soldier in the future or anything.
My teacher preferred the boys over the girls.
Words: hell, crap, heck, idiot, dumb, stupid, shut up, are not Profanity and who thinks Everything is a Swear Word will pay the price.
Actually, this was one of my friends. She comes from a REALLY strict family and her parents think everything's a swear word. Like, stupid, dumb, shut up, oh my goodness, heck, hell and crap. She says words like these at school( because there not bad) but she also says actual swear words at school as well, because she thinks it's cool and it's the only place where her parents won't know.
Student: What the heck!
Teacher: Hey, watch your language!
Teacher: You heard me.
Student: Heck is not a swear word!
Teacher: Detention, now!
Student: What the heck is wrong with y-
Teacher: Leave my room!
Student: I'd love to, especially if it's a room where you can't even say he-
I said crap before in class and my teacher will kill you if you say A SWEAR word like why. Once there was this boy in my class he said a swear word and he was straight to the principal's office
My high school special ed teacher.
My summer school teacher.
