Wild Junk Substitute Teachers Did

Times Students' Parents Obviously Did Their Work

Sometimes people think it's the students that ae the most challenging part of a teacher's job. That's only true most of the time. It can actually be the parents trying to interfere too much with their kid's education. Sometimes a teacher can just look at a finished project and go, "looks like dad did a great job." Sometimes it goes the other way. Sometimes teachers have no faith in students but they succeed anyway, like this student who won an art contest to spite their rude teacher.

Teachers' "That's Amazing But Please Stop" Stories

Students are curious and motivated individuals especially when it comes to breaking the rules or mocking each other. They'll go to impressive lengths in order to tastefully vandalize restrooms or expertly cheat the system. You can't tell them it's the right thing to do, but it's at least impressive. To give the kids some credit, here's a Tumblr thread on a teacher who underestimated their students during a social experiment.

Wild and Awkward Junk said by Teachers

We've been out of school for a little bit so maybe things haven't changed much, but damn teachers used to get away with saying some absolutely wild stuff. Some were great, most were fine, but some could be wrong and dumb or just awkward bullies. Sometimes bad teachers got their comeuppance, like this strict teacher who told a student not to speak and it totally backfired. Kids can be weird too, like in these weird and stupid school stories.

20 Frustrated People Share The Most Screwed Up Things Teachers Put Them Through

Many of us can thank our teachers for inspiring us to embrace our passions and take on careers that we didn't think we'd achieve in our wildest dreams. That's some teachers though. Other teachers are negligent, selfish bullies who have no respect for other people, and have no desire to help kids learn. Sometimes kids are dumb, but that's not necessarily the teacher's fault. These teachers here though are grade-A douchebags.
