Worst Kinds of Teachers

The Top Ten Worst Kinds of Teachers

1 Mean Teachers

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

Mean teachers are horrible. They are bossy, insult you, give you depression and suicidal thoughts, and many other stuff. I saw a list about reasons to hate mean teachers and this was number 1 and most of the other reasons related to this.

If mean means they are basically everything on this list, then it has to be my Arabic teacher that I have right now, by the way I'm in grade 3 (elementary), just look (this complaisant might sound a bit mature for a 10 year old, but I'm just a bit mature for my age, I don't wanna act like I'm it but, yeah I think you get it):

First of all, her grammar sucks. Instead of saying 'pay attention' she says 'ATTENTION ME! ', and yes, she does say it with a loud voice. Shes like YOUR NOT A ANIMAL, YOUR A HUMAN, YOU HAVE A BRAIN, SO USE IT, WHAT WILL YOUR MOM BE LIKE IF SHE SEES YOU DO THIS? *?!. I stayed silent, but here is what I should've said: My mom respects my habits, don't think your overpowered!. She also is short and sounds like a witch. She shouldn't have messed with me though. Our school was very strict about how teachers act towards students. Average teachers were nothing like the teachers on this list, which probably means our Arabic teacher is the worst teacher that this ...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. - Puppytart

2 Teachers That Give Too Much Homework

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 in class. This is pretty ...more - KN

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.

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!

My math teacher gives the class a "weekend math packet" every Friday for weekend homework. I HATE WEEKEND HOMEWORK!

I get weekend homework, but at least I don't get a "weekend math packet"? - sryanbruen

3 Teachers Who Blame the Whole Class When Only a Few Kids Did Something Wrong

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.

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. - CartoonCriticizer

In every single class that you are in, there is one or two kids, in EVERY SINGLE CLASS (especially in middle school) that does something bad and everyone is blamed. Also in sports, we do pushups and stuff like that.

You know, I remember having two fifth grade teachers, and one of them would blame my class for a mess that THE OTHER CLASS DID! - NuMetalManiak

4 Strict Teachers

Freaking always has to say something even if it's the smallest things

Let's get out a chromebook and do some work like my teacher told me to--...THEY BLOCKED EVERYTHING! WHAY!

I like strict teachers, but I also like the one's that aren't strict. - Luckys

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.

5 Teachers Who Pick Favorites

Yes, indeed. we had this weird ta who always bumlicked a student no matter what he did

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.

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! - railfan99

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.

6 Teachers That Stalk You

This isn't stalking, but my math teacher was looking directly at me whenever I was getting lunch. - Luckys

Mrs. Lamb and Miss Stone were always on my ass - Bikerninja1997

Our principal is always there.

This is the definition of special ed teachers

7 Old Teachers

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.

Well it actually depends. A lot of my old teachers were really nice, but some were mean. It actually really depends.

I got a new principal today and he looks like Donald Trump.

Old teachers are either super mean or super nice. - 445956

It seems teachers's personality is getting more significant through the years - Alkadikce

8 Ugly Teachers

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.

Don't judge people by their looks

Umm no I had an ugly teacher who was really nice to everyone.

How does their outside appearance affect their qualities as a teacher? - 3DG20

9 Pedophiles

How is this not #1? This is physical danger, not just getting yelled at.

I voted for something else before seeing this. - CartoonCriticizer

Um like I don't know pedophiles are pretty bad

How are they teachers?!

10 Teachers That Give Too Many Tests

In 9th grade it felt like my Biology teacher gave me a test every day - hoppingicon

Math teacher. Every Wednesday and Friday we write a test but I actually enjoy it because I normally get the highest.

My math teacher gives a test almost every thursday! - SamuiNeko

I've said this on a lot of the items on this list, but once again, Science.

The Contenders

11 Dumb Teachers

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. - CartoonCriticizer

I had a substitute and she was talking about how she was going to sneak the computers to us in front of the principal and I'm not sure what happened to her she came back after a while - Puppytart

My English teacher of 4 th class literally pronounced island as is- land

My teacher literally said that our class "did a 160 degree flip". Does she not know that there are 360 degrees in a circle? - bubbleteaknj

12 Teachers Who Humiliate Students

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! )

Teachers are the wardens, the school is the jail, and you are the prisoners. - CartoonCriticizer

Looking at you Mrs. Johnson - Luckys

my teachers humiliate me all the time - Yoshiandaglover

13 Teachers Who Always Think They're Right and You're Wrong

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"

Absolutely the worst teachers on earth

No amount of convincing will do

That's mean what they do

14 Teachers That Will Not Let You Go to the Bathroom

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!

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.

My teacher once stated that you can't go to the bathroom during maths

I guess she worships maths

Almost every single teacher ever.

15 Teachers Who Yell at the Entire Class for No Reason

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.

Maths teacher.


16 Teachers Who Pick on Just One Student

My sub teacher that picks on all the naughty kids when they are being nice

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. - CartoonCriticizer

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 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!

17 Pervert Teachers

My 6th grade teach looked at where my penis was. I'm in 12th now - TheRemixr

My 6th grade PE teacher is a bisexual, he looks at girls and boys butts why they are excersising.

When every SOMEBODY is not listening my teacher would SCREAM LIKE A LUNATIC

They talk so loud when your like right their in their face!

Drama teacher.

19 Teachers With Bad Breath

20 Teachers Who Mess Up Your Grades

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. - Entranced98

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.

By the way this was in Kindergarten I am way above Kindergarten now!
Teacher:Ok class,what is 1+1
Me:Whispers*:How is this gonna help us in the future?
Friends:I think it's just a simple math fact
Me:I'll just answer the question for points!
Friends:Ok,sounds good
Me:*Raises Hand*
Teacher:Ok Anna,what is it
Friends:Good job
Me:Please don't complement me,she's just waisting my time! - AnnaRoblox

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 ...more - 3DG20

Special ed!

22 Teachers Who Don't Believe You

In high school, another kid trashed a teacher's closet, and ALL THE TEACHERS FRAMED ME!

Teachers: see me after class
me: what the?
(after class)

Teacher #1: a teacher found her closet trashed. Did you do it?
Me: no
Teacher #2: tell me the truth
Teacher: 3: if you don't tell the truth we need to call security

Later they called security to talk to me.

Security: You know lying can lead to serious consequences, right?

Later all the teachers found out that I WAS telling the truth after all, and they all owed me an apology.

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... - KingSlayer93316

Miss Dunham sometimes won't believes students story - Bikerninja1997

Zero tolerance policy

23 Teachers Who Think Everything's a Cuss Word

My high school special ed teacher would not allow me to say the word "Disney"

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

Teachers: Please don't be as strict as Roblox safe chat! I want to tell me friends how many percent I got, but you wont let me say numbers!

I nearly got in trouble with my high school special ed teacher for saying the words "racist", "old", "confused", and "joking around"

My high school special ed teacher.

25 Teachers Who Prefer One Gender


26 Teachers Who Treat a Certain Student Better Than Everyone Else

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! - railfan99

English, but I don't find my teacher mean, because I'm the cetain student. I sounded so selfish them, I'm not selfish, and I actually feel sorry for the rest of my class.

Fifth grade Environmental studies teacher

Professor snape? Anyone?

27 Teachers Who Don't Let You Talk On Your Phone

Actually. I do agree with this being a school policy. It is a bit disrespectful to be on your phone while a teacher is trying to teach, so I can understand why this is a rule - Stazemar000

It is a little disrespectful to talk on the phone during class though, especially when the teacher is trying to teach so I can understand why this is a rule. - 3DG20

This isn't that bad because no teacher should let you do this in class.

Why would any teacher let you use your phone?

28 Teachers Who Keep You After the Bell Rings

Once in high school my special ed teacher yelled at the whole class over someone telling a harmless joke.

(Bell rings for last class)


Yeah, I mean what's the point of having a bell if it didn't mean anything.

I had this one lady who would use this as a way to get her way

ThE bElL doesn't dIsMiSs YoU I Do - Haumea

29 Teachers Who Hate Children for No Reason!

My high school special ed teacher really hated me. She was so strict and mean to me CONSTANTLY.

I had a teacher that made me want to ask her this. If you do not want to teach than don't teach!

Yeah, like, what have I done? Why do you hate me so much?

Teaching is not the job for you dude.

30 Fat Teachers

This doesn't affect their teaching so why should it matter? - Entranced98

Some fat teachers can be mean and old. I had a fat teacher back in elementary (2nd grade) and she was also old. She was so mean to me.

Seventh grade religion

31 Lazy Teachers

I have a teacher who is sooo lazy, she once spent an entire day handing out ONE worksheet. Not that we do any work in her class. She is so lazy, she doesn’t even lift s finger when half the class runs outside. Her best saying is,”whatever. I’m gettin my paycheck tomorrow.”(this is all true)

Teacher: *Hands out 10 history booklets*
Student #1: Can you at least show us what to do?
Teacher: Figure it out. *Sits down and plays with his phone*
Student #1: *Raises hand*
Teacher: *Ignores*
Student #1: Whatever. *Throws booklets in the trash and leaves*
Student #2: Uh... Teacher!
Teacher: *Ignores*
Student #2: He just threw his booklet in the trash and left.
Teacher: *Ignores*
Student #2: You don’t care?
Teacher: *Ignores*
Student #2: I need help!
Teacher: *Ignores*
Student #2: *Throws a pencil at the teacher*
Teacher: *Looks up angrily* Who did that?
Student #2: At least it got you to stop ignoring me...
Teacher: Detention, NOW!
Student #2: Jeez, calm down! I was just asking for help. Besides, why am I the one in trouble? He threw his booklet out and left!
Teacher: *Goes back on his phone* - 3DG20

32 Teachers Who Give Loads of Homework

You think we are robots! No, we are just harmless little children.

It happen in gr 9 and now gr 10 -_-

When I had a substitute teacher for my social studies teacher for 6 weeks in 8th grade, she would always make us take NOTES! And we didn’t even use them! - KingSlayer93316

35 Teachers That Are Off Topic All the Time

Yes this is so true! My science teacher in 6th grade was supposed to teach and instead just talked about how AWESOME her family is and how hard-working they all are. She also complimented herself and talked about how smart she was!

What? But this is SO FUN! - Aquaturtle

I don't mind this one, personally I usually draw while they go off on birdwalks

My sst teacher is supposed to teach but she made us say long prayers and thank god that I have five fingers and not four. Her class came to be called 'church'

36 Teachers Who Take the Whole Class to Go Over Homework

Homework should not exist - ihatetrump

Why is this on the list? That means they’ll run out of time to give you new homework... Unless this happens at least:

The bell rings before the teacher was able to finish taking up the class’ homework from the night before.
Student #1: Okay cool, bye!
Teacher: Wait!
Student #2: *Sigh* We wanna go!
Teacher: I need to give you your homework for tonight!
Student #2: Look, if the homework you’re already giving us is enough to spend the whole class going over it, then it’s too much. *Leaves*
Teacher: Fine, you can just fail then! - 3DG20

37 Teachers that Make Students Cry

Okay, so, I have this math teacher in high school who likes to joke around. He's laid-back too, but still, likes to joke around and whatnot. So, one day, I was sitting at my desk (along with the rest of the students) waiting for him to start teaching. And all of a sudden, he looks at me and tells me to "shush". WHAT?! I DID NOT MAKE A ' SOUND! I WAS JUST SITTING AT MY DESK KEEPING MY LIPS SHUT! >:( - Stazemar000

I cried at school a lot. Mainly it's because of the teachers.

38 Teachers Who Take the Bully's Side

That is a mean Teacher - Bikerninja1997

39 Teachers Who Snap at You

Jee, with items like male teachers, old teachers, ugly teachers and teachers with ADHD, I can almost understand why they snap at you... - 3DG20


A teacher did that to me IN FRONT OF THE WHOLE CLASS once in college. I cried for nearly 3/4 of the day because of him. It was so scary! >:(

40 Teachers Who Give You a Lot of Guff

That's bad like trumpu

This is so funny to say. What is “guff” anyways?

41 Teachers Who Are Always Screaming

Mrs. Boyer Screams at me and made me cry and the other students cry. - Bikerninja1997

I know,right? Their voice practically makes me deaf!

42 Insensitive Teachers

These teachers are terrible, and back in 5th grade a sub literally made me cry, and I got sent to the principal's office for being "overdramatic". What?! The reason she was screaming at me in the first place was because I was working ahead. WORKING AHEAD. That's a good thing, right? And when I tried to explain that the teacher let us work ahead, she yelled at me for talking back. And in the principal's office, I tried to explain myself, and they asked if I was calling the sub a liar, and I said "no, I was calling her mistaken", and they got even more mad, and said not to give them sass! I was in fifth grade, and was literally in tears! On a side note, the instant me and the sub were out of the room, the biggest jerk in the class stood up, on a chair, and she told the entire class that I deserved to be sent to the principal's office! I found that out later because my best friend told me. So glad I left that school, but really sad that I left my best friend.

My high school special ed teacher made me cry so many times and when I was crying she ordered me to stop in a harsh tone of voice! SO MEAN! >:(

43 Teachers Who Never Shut Up About Their Life

One teacher I had kept talking about when she worked in a gherkin factory. UGH GET ON WITH THE LESSON.

Geography teacher. This lady never shuts up about her kids in England.

I mean, if it distracts them from giving us work, then just let them do it. - 3DG20

For someone who hates school, sometimes I actually like this.

44 Hypocritical Teachers

First off, I am a 15 year old boy (Just saying).My Spanish teacher, she once punished me for simply folding a piece of paper into my book and had a 10 minutes rant at me screaming at the top of her lungs. But when a girl who is the smartest in the class and is a perfectionist forgot to do her assessment, the teacher let her off and said "We all forget things at times".

45 Teachers Who Are Never Absent

Why don't you get the flu or something, are you captain america?

I can't believe how bad students are bad nowadays. This for me, is a good thing.

46 Picky Teachers

My high school special ed teacher made us always write our names in cursive and she insists that we we cram our backpacks into our lockers (which are way too small) instead of putting them on an empty desk/chair or in the floor next to us like the regular ed classes

'it's not perfect, not a complete answer, it's on 3 hole paper, blah blah blah'
Dear god just take it - Co0lk1d25

Student: I finished my assignment! *Hands assignment in and walks away*
Teacher: Come back!
Student: *Walks back to the teacher*
Teacher: Your justification isn’t thorough enough here.
Student: But I still explained my work.
Teacher: In very little detail.
Student: It’s better than no detail.
Teacher: *Writes a big 0 on the top and throws it back to the student*
Student: Are you serious?
Teacher: I don’t know. You tell me. Did I say I was kidding?
Student: No.
Teacher: Did I cross out that 0?
Student: No.
Teacher: Did I laugh?
Student: No.
Teacher: Did I even smile?
Student: No.
Teacher: Then you should know the answer to that. Get out of my sight! - 3DG20

47 Teachers With No Sense of Humor

When they have a class they never make jokes. When they do it is so bad, but the teacher forces you to laugh or else they will make it so hard for you to get a good grade. If you make a joke they will get so mad at you, and if you laugh at a joke some one else made then you will be yelled at for being happy.

In high school my special ed teacher heard several students make jokes and she yelled at the whole class for it. She thought it was bullying.

They are so unfunny and don't know when to spice up life! I hate those teachers.

When they do make jokes they're so bad I want to shoot myself.

48 Teachers Who Wear Short Clothes
49 Nosy Teachers

My special ed teacher in high school. She would follow me EVERYWHERE! What a stalker!
