Stupid teachers.

School has never been a very strong setting for myself. I make the best strides in a flexible environment. Most teachers have superiority complexes, they have this need to make sure students feel like less than themselves. My problem is in a straight forward sense that I have ADD. ADD sounds like a excuse but it is more of a partial reasoning to my attitude towards life. Teachers never liked that I would so easy get in my own head and not be paying attention to the world around myself. The classroom was simply not stimulating enough to hold my attention so it really did nothing for me and teachers never made a effort to help that.

As far as bad teachers go my second grade teacher is no longer allowed to teach and had her certification removed after verbally and physically abusing students in 3 different schools starting with mine ending in her throwing a chair at a student. I remember she put a kid who came from Poland and barely new any English in the trash can calling him trash.

There was one teacher who would regularly yell at me to walk faster after school hours as I was not walking to his preference.

I also had a vice principle who once grabbed me by the scruff and proceeded to screamed at me because I wasn't walking straight and instead walking around people to make my way down the hall.

My 6th grade gym teacher almost failed me because I had a hard time doing situp's on concrete because it grinded against my tailbone and spine despite my requests to use a mat and the fact I did hundreds of situp's all the time at Judo.

In grade 10 I had my first programming class I was excited until my teacher had very specific indentation rules and refused to help me learn because I didn't use them. Even when I was asking for his help to learn them he would refuse to help me till had had formatted my program. Eventually I learned from a friend but he didn't like that so he moved me to a corner alone so I couldn't get help telling me he refused to let me pass the class. I even copied a friends program exactly except altered variables and he gave me 2/5 and my friend a 4/5 despite them being the same program. Did I mention his son got 100% in the class surprise surprise. Still my vice principle felt I was just lieing student he was the perfect teacher.

I also remember being in elementary school and a teacher kept trying to accuse me of stealing a kids cards despite both me and the kid telling her we were both just playing the card game and not exchanging any cards.

In a similar type incident I got in trouble for beating up a kid once despite never having met the kid in my life. I suspect the kid told the teacher on me for the hell of it and me being older made me the instigator and bully.

I have even more stories ranging from the school steeling students basketballs and soccer balls to not being able to talk to my friend because he was younger than myself.

Some people fit well into the school system I guess I didn't cause I always sorta felt like I had this giant target on my head at all times from everyone. High school was better but College finally feels like true freedom. Finally I can be in a place without prejudice.

Actually, I did have one who I honestly believe to be bipolar.
No, she was like the POSTER CHILD for bipolar disorder.

I had an English teacher in year 6 (aged ten?) and if I had listened to her, I would have had absolutely no interest in creative writing when I got older. (Lost interest now unfortunately, but I was always good at it when I did it, no thanks to her).

She made me fume when she said good stories have no one speaking in them. We had to write stories with no more than one line of dialogue and if it did have speaking in it, she'd fail us. As in, we had to re-write an already established story (a bloody depressing one too, about some little girl who got killed while she was looking for seashells, her body was washed away and never found... Lovely).
It's really hard to write a story with a load of characters who apparently can't interact.
Apparently this wasn't the teaching plan, she just liked implementing her own opinions and teaching s what she thought was right.

Also one I made the smallest mistake. I can't remember quite what it was but I know it was one that was easily done because half the class had done it too. She seemed to think backing me into the corner and literally screaming in my face was the best way to deal with me. I grabbed my stuff and left that class.

I kind of want to get a book published and put "To my year 6 English teacher... FUCK YOU." in the mentions. :P

I thought I had a terrible Geography teacher back in High school. All he would do was talk about his family and random other things that had nothing to do with Geography. Everyone would makes joke about how his class was so easy as hardly any work ever got done.

Turns out everyone in his classes passed their exams. I have no idea where he slipped the Geography in, but we all knew our stuff when it came time to write it down. Magic teacher is magic.

All the students in my school on a snowy day spent all day being told off by one slightly improtant teacher, all because he missed the morning meeting that said we were allowed to play in the snow.

He said "You can play when you get home", but no, it melted during the shcool day.

So in tenth grade we went on a skiing trip. Half way there we were divided into groups of 5 and they said "Ok, there is a storm coming and it will hit in 15 minutes. Make a snow cave big enough for everyone in your group."

So we started digging and when 15 minutes have passed they said that everyone had to get in. It wasn't any room for me so I just stood there and went "oh well.. no big deal"
Well, the teacher didn't agree. He came up to me and ordered me to get in. (I want to stress how little room there was. If I tried I would probably get half of my foot in.) I replied with "are you blind? there no room." I thought that would be enough. but no, he ordered me once again to get into the snow cave. His shouting had gotten the attention of the entire class by now and everyone was just staring at us. I refused but that didn't stop him from getting up in my face and ordering me again. Now I was sick of this asshole so I replied "Are you retarded? there's no room." You can probably guess what happened next. yep, he ordered me again. Now I was really getting sick of him so I said to him, I think I might have yelled because I was pretty angry at this point."Are you fucking stupid? Can't you see that there isn't any room? Are you fucking high?"
His response was to threatening to send me home. After that another teacher came over and stopped him.

so anyone else had a retarded teacher?

Your group should have planned better and reworked your little cave to accommodate everyone. And from the sounds of it, you came off as the hostile one initially. He didn't handle it well either, but you certainly didn't seem to make any effort to do your part. If I had been that other teacher who stopped him, I probably would have sent you home, or punished you in some way, for being so disrespectful.

As for me, I had one teacher give me a detention for playing a game installed on a school computer (that old pinball one). She said I was downloading something or some bullshit. The dumb part about it was that everyone next to me was playing the same game.

Well, that the difference from Norwegian school and probably the rest of the world. The "you have to respect your teacher" shit is None-existant.
which is why I don't understand anyone who wants to become a teacher in Norway.
And that teacher was an asshole. I mean this guy was the biggest asshole known to man.

Which reminds me of an other story, with the same teacher.
This wasn't my class though, but he was their gym teacher. He took the class back to his own house and got the class to clean his back yard after he had some renovation done to his house.
Who does that?!

She wasn't entirely stupid, but there was an incident with my 5th grade teacher. We were doing a short unit on astronomy and the various constellations. While she was naming them, she would regularly come across ones that she didn't know, and would just lie and say that the particular constellation just didn't have a name. (I had been playing Megaman Starforce at that point in my life, so I already had a slight interest in constellations.) Whenever I would correct her, she would get REALLY pissed. I wasn't even being a smart-ass about it, even though it was tempting when she couldn't even name Cygnus or Lyra. I don't expect her to know every single constellation (I certainly don't know them all), but Cygnus and Lyra are pretty basic ones. I eventually got kicked out for "being disruptive" (Even though I raised my hand and waited to be called on before correcting her each time.)

The ironic thing is, she would always rant about how video games never taught us anything ;P

I had a music teacher when I was 14...Wow

Basically, you went in her classroom that REEKED of dried up sweat, then a large woman with a heavy eastern European accent would hand out random sheets of music for us to sing. Never any lessons, just take this and sing you little shits.

Then, after 30 minutes, she would pick a name out of a hat and give an oral quiz.

First, she made us repeat a tempo by tapping on the table. So far, nothing bad, until you realized that she was extraordinarily sexist, and would pass girls, even if they fucked up so badly it made the class laugh, and would fail the boys, even if they got it spot on.
After that, it was a random question about music history. Again, the girls got easier questions, like in what century did x person compose symphonies.
The boys got shit like: where was performed x symphony for the first time in front of the King of Spain.
What the flying fuck.
But the worst part is that even if she didn't know your name, she knew you, and if she didn't like you, she would basically forge your grades to fail you.

The school didn't react because that grade was basically for show, and didn't even count in the final grade. It was just a pissing contest to see who would get the lowest grade without actually trying to fail.

The only good thing she ever did was decide not to work one week by making us bring instruments or sing any song we chose in front of the class. We all had a good laugh, we all sucked.

She was eventually fired for striking a student.

In Year 4 (age 9) I had a teacher who could be best described as a hippy. Lessons included recycling the paper we'd used for work by adding water and turning it into a paper pulp, pouring it into moulds to dry and being left with something you couldn't physically write on. We even had a class excursion to a local worm farm, which inspired him to set one up in our class room. So our room smelt like compost and it was some lucky persons job to collect the worm ... ummm ... juice each day and poor in on all the plants in the room.

Instead of actually teaching us maths, English, science or anything relevant, he just gave us 2 or 3 booklets of worksheets that he wanted us to do one page a week for a year. But the stuff was mainly basic multiplication and reading comprehension, so I did it in the first week. When I asked him for something else to do, he said that was it and he couldn't find anything for me to do.

But the reason I hated him was that he wanted our school to have a "Peace Garden". And the planned to achieve this by using the kids in his class as manual labour. So everyday for half of the year he would take us down to the chosen area and have the other kids dig holes, plant saplings, cart around wheelbarrows of manure for fertiliser etc. I say the other kids as I flat out refused to do gardening at school. He tried everything to get me to help and when that failed he kept trying to come up with ways to keep me involved in the project, like keep a diary of our progress or run messages around, so he wouldn't have to organise something else for me to do. It ended up with him organising a meeting with my patents. He told them that I was being difficult, disruptive and disrespectful and my mum's response was "No shit, you're trying to get him to make a garden". After that he gave up and I got to sit under a tree for the rest of the year.

We had an English teacher this year who was quite amusing. She was really dumb and too nice to be a teacher to a bunch of teenage boy's. For instance when she showed up late for class one day we decided we would have a sleep class. So when the teacher walked in we had our heads down and refused to agknowledge her for the rest of the class, despite her various effort's.

I had a Maths teacher that was so bad at her job that one day she got two kids to teach the and all they ever do is take the piss out of each other and they still managed to teach us something that she couldn't and she ended up losing her job because it proved how bad at her job she was.

In Primary school we had a rounders tournament every year (It's like baseball except easier.)

In P7 (10-11 year olds) as the oldest class in the school we got to pick teams. The captains were chosen out of a hat, and they got to pick their own vice captains, overseen by our teacher. One of the captains choose me as their vice captain, while I wouldn't be the most sporty in the class, I was still well above average at being able to hit the ball. This didn't stop the teacher from remarking, in front of the entire class, "Oh, you've picked him, I've no idea why." In a completely condescending way.

That was 12 years ago. You never forget that stuff.

I hate all my teachers. Professors are great, but teachers...
I envy former class mates who find it fun to hang out with teachers, even after ten years from graduation.

I can't even think of a particular story to illustrate my nate for teachers because I hate them so much every minutes of my schooling life.

Supply teacher who spent the lesson making fun of the fat kid. Never got work at the school again, unsurprisingly. :P

Overly religious headteacher at primary school who would do assemblies where she made people guess 'What's in my bag today?' Nine times out of ten it was a bible. *sigh*

This incredibly creepy guy who taught history and law, didn't seem to be able to hold a thought in his head for more than five seconds, had apparently not mastered basic human communication, and said quite a lot of stuff that made him seem like a paedophile. For example we were learning about medieval history, he said something like 'Does the jousting turn you on, girls?' o.O

A teacher who used to do boxing and had clearly only taken the job so he could take out his anger on small children. That guy was scary.

But I've also had a lot of teachers who were completely insane but really good, so can't complain. :D

Ze. Zbbafuvar:
I had a teacher that was convinced the Magna Carta was the first British (yes, British) King to bring human rights to his country.

He was, ablely supported by his side kick and confidant, Bill of Rights.

Most of our teachers where very, very good as it was an English public school. We did have a couple of "teachers" hired to help boost the sport teams though. Chap called Chris Sheasby, a professional rugby player, who also taught remedial maths. There was another chap who "taught" me history and was very impressed by my use of the word "shackled".

I went to a Christian School for 13 years from K-12 (Australia) and had to deal with the fact of my first name being Dennis. So whenever i got a new teacher they would always without fault make the joke of "Dennis i bet your going to be a menace." It isn't so bad i guess but its my annoyance, the other has to do with my last name being Dick so i guess its a double whammy of "joke" names and again without fault but this would be for every day of the year as well as year, Is that any teacher reading down the roll call would get to my name after reading out everyone before me's first and last name pause for a moment and go Dennis ? and then continue with first and last names. My name would also get me into trouble with some teachers accusing the class of putting it in as a joke name and my 12th grade home room teacher even went so far as to say wow Dennis Dick your parents must have really wanted you to be laughed at.

On my 12th grade home room teacher as well. When we got our year 12 jersey we had the option of putting our last name on the back, Well everyone but me because it would be seen as rude to the people around me. But i fought for my right to have it claiming that i was being discriminated against by the school and they gave in to me or so i thought until i received my Jersey minus my name on the back. It turned out my teacher had forgot to put it on my form that i wanted my name on the back. So i being understanding went out and paid to have my last name placed on the back at my own expense and the next day at school during home room was called up by the same teacher and asked to remove my jersey because it now had Dick written on the back. Too which i flat out refused as it was still my name and there was nothing wrong with it seeing my side of things she gave me detention for refusing her. this kept going over the course of the week and even got my vice principle involved with him claiming i was disrespecting myself and my school by having such vulgar language on the back of my jersey. But still i refused to stop wearing it and launched into a rather heated fight with my vice principle over him claiming i was disrespecting myself for having pride in my name, i spent every day for 2 months in detention for wearing my jersey to school until my mother caught wind of what had been happening came in and verbally castrated the vice principle afterwards i was never hassled again about my jersey.

Had a teacher once who nearly drove us off a mountain because he was trying to get a better look at a falcon.

I'm sure the rest of the drive was...Hawkward.

O.T: I've had a long-term substitute who spent a lot of class time telling stories that were mostly off topic of the subject we were learning, but otherwise I've been blessed with non-moron teachers.

Knew I forgot one:

10th or 11th Grade: Bad enough everyone was forced to take a class that no one wanted, but to top it off, we're given a teacher that doesn't teach, nor know how to interact with people. So in short, our Art History teacher was insane. She screamed everything at the students, and she was so loud that everyone in the school could hear her. She often claimed to be able to speak several languages, but when asked to say something in another language, she'd scream at the person to shut up.

She also didn't know jack about art nor history. I remember that she was going on about some dude that painted fruit, but I told her that the guy never painted real fruit. He had to use wax fruit since his paintings would take so long to make, real fruit would rot, but she flat out refused to believe it.

She also greatly watered down all the paints to the point where all we had was off colored water. Not to mention she screamed right into my ear once.

You sir, have won. Do not ask me of what, for that is beyond such being as you and I, but believe me when I say - you have won.

You reminded me of an epic teacher I had too, who used to teach two classes at my school, and both of them he was awesome. When no one was looking, which was most of the time, he'd break out his war stories, tales of when he was a milk man, more quotes from Winston Churchill than anyone should reasonably know, speak Latin at the drop of a hat and recite the most epic Shakespeare monologues from memory. Over the course of three years he read the entirety of the book Cider With Rosie to us, without anyone noticing even, and he had the best sense of humour ever.

What he didn't teach us however, was English Lit, which kind of screwed us over come exam time. Still, it was worth it.

I learnt all my constellations from the Muppets Treasure Island video game (Tim Curry ftw!) Video game learning rocks.

In Year 11 I was told off by my History teacher for suggesting that an 'E', is not a good grade to get. Perhaps I was tactless for saying it (as some people got them grades on some work), but to say that I was wrong just slightly gave out the wrong message.

It's not the end of the world getting an E, but nobody should be bloody proud of it.

Most teachers in my school. They were good people, but dammit, most of them sucked at their jobs. My chemistry/biology teacher spent almost every lesson telling inapropriate jokes and fictional stories, then sometimes we would get a test, we were allowed to use books so it was just a simple task of copying some text from a book. Our history teacher used the same methods of teaching, minus the fun, she just sat in her chair silently the whole time, except for a few times when a bunch of our more troublesome kids made her cry by not doing what she says, it was a pathetic sight.

Tech Ed, both years. Teacher didn't know anything. She taught us nothing. The program we had to use was retarded and also taught us nothing. It tried to teach me to go find the copy and paste button, and go through a menu for all the other things you can easily do from your keyboard.

I also had a teacher last year who snapped. People told me she was nice, and maybe at the beginning of the year she was, but she just snapped. She is quitting after this year, and I am glad for it. She would give people bad grades because she didn't like them. And no, I am not one of those kids who blame every bad grade on the teacher not liking them. When I got a C in science, it was because I did C work. But she was just that kind of stupid bitch.

EDIT: Oh yeah, and any teacher who punishes the whole class for what a few students do. One of those teachers was of course, the above bitch.

I had an English teacher who would talk and talk but not about English he'd tell us stories about things than happened to him when he was younger. He would stop us while we were reading books and to tell us about a football game he saw and he' just not shut up. He always seemed a bit off but one day he went up to a girl in the class saying she was beautiful and that he wished he could pick her up but that he'd get in trouble if he touched her. But wait there's more, one day while reading a shot story about someone's dream he stopped and asked us, get ready cause this might blow your socks off, if we had erotic dreams. He asked us to put our hands up if we had and wanted us to tell him who it was about, he went on to bother the girl whom he wanted to "pick up" to tell him about her dreams and then as the icing on the creepy cake he told us about his sex dreams... Worst part is after having him for 2+ years I didn't learn a thing about English.

OP where on Earth do you live that its more common to build a snow cave then it is to go inside the lodge or if your in transit to sit on the bus (or whatever)?

As for my story. My grade 8 teacher was a complete idiot. Had no control of his class. Honestly I think we handed in maybe like 20 pieces of homework as a class and I was probably the best student there (most had less than that). We spent the majority of our time in the gym outside or doing fuck all in class. By the end I honestly think he was pulling marks out his ass. There was one kid I know that didn't do a single one of the 3 activities in the music book we were supposed to do got in an argument with the teacher saying he handed it in (lying), and the teacher eventually just said "How about a B then? Seem fair?" Kid said ya and got a free B.

I had a teacher that forced me to organize my supplies or else I'd fail the whole year. That's a bit cold when you say that to a 10 year old. The kicker was that she picked me because in her words 'You need to organize the way that pleases me not in the way that helps you study' and because I was the smartest and needed to fail once in a while. I'll just end by saying some people in the school system believe that if anyone is smart and is not white, they need to be brought down. Thank God that this stopped after middle school.

My 11th grade English teacher was lazy, dumb, incompetent, and a creep. He had us skip chapters in books we were reading because "oh, that chapter isn't important." Never mind that the chapter was important, but, whatever. He once made my entire class retake a test because he couldn't find it. Best part, he put all of the tests into the trash, and only found out after we had all finished the test. It didn't help that he talked in this slow, creepy voice and asked girls with ponytails to "whip them around." I'm convinced that he'll become a sex offender one of these days.

Then there was my 3rd grade teacher. I don't remember much about that year, I think I just blocked it from my memory, but apparently she really had it out for me, and would single me out and harass me in front of the entire class. Eventually with enough parental intervention she stopped, but the damage had already been done.

Other than that though, most of my teachers have been pretty damn good. My town has an extremely competent public education system.

I live in Norway. We were on our way to a cabin called jødalshøtta. It was 5 hours each way...
The trip TO the cabin wasn't that bad. The trip from the cabin on the other hand. It was a blizzard. No joke, you could lean against the wind.

Wouldn't it still just be safer to sit in the bus with the heater on though?

I've got a few to share.

In year 4 my teacher seemed to hate me and would single me out as much as possible, when very nearly every other teacher I've ever had considered me one of their brightest and most well-behaved pupils. The most memorable event being where the girl sitting next to me kept stealing my pencil case, I would reach over to take it back and she would immediately take it again. The desk was facing the teacher and she had a clear line of sight, so there really should have been no ambiguity about this. She was reading something out to the class at the time and suddenly stopped to shout at me, not both of us, just me, demanding to know why I was disrupting her lesson. I said that the girl next to me kept taking my pencil case, so the teacher made a big song and dance of taking her outside the class and came in five seconds later saying I was the one doing it and that my parents would be called.

In year 7 a science teacher gave my entire class detention in which we had to write lines ("I will not disrupt the lesson.") because one person kept interrupting her.

In year 10 another science teacher gave us some group work to do and told us to form groups however we wanted and do the work, then left the room. When he came back in fifteen minutes later I and one other person were sent out because we were A) not sitting where we were before, and B) talking (about the work). He was fired five years later after growing slowly more and more unstable and unreliable (although it took his entire A-level physics class complaining repeatedly, apparently teachers with physics degrees are hard to find and so the school was reluctant to get rid of them).

Between my years 11 & 12 my school's art photography teacher went part time, this meant that people who had chosen to do A-level photography, having done the GCSE, were mixed into A-level fine art and graphics classes because he only worked enough hours to teach GCSE photography (it was in high demand because he was a thoroughly brilliant teacher in every possible respect, honestly the best teacher I've ever had). We worked on all the same themes, but unlike the graphics and fine art students, the photographers like myself had little to do during the lessons (photos of the inside of a classroom being a somewhat limited prospect) and the attached dark room only being usable for black and white film, which only one person used. This wasn't that bad as the few photographers used the class time to write what little there was to write for the projects, however the teacher (who had no experience with photography) kept insisting that we should do more 'artistic' work in class, every single lesson she would walk over to the table where the photographers sat and made some comment to this effect, this would get murmurs of agreement and then she would shuffle off back to her desk or to check on someone else's work and we would ignore what she said because it was pointless. During one lesson, instead of the agree/ignore response that had become habit I pointed out that we were photographers and so there was basically nothing 'artistic' we could do in class, her response to this was to suggest that we should draw pretty borders around the photographs. Either she missed the point so hard that she accidentally hit someone in the next county, or she wanted us to waste our time with useless busywork to make her feel better. Needless to say I ignored her suggestions.

What bus? xD
we was in a skiing trip and there were no roads leading to the cabin. I said I lived in Norway right?

Once a PE teacher gave me a warning for being inside a school building during lunch hour (as in somewhere other than in, or on the way to the canteen), later she see's my twin inside a school building and told him he doesn't get a warning because I got one and he should have somehow known, so he got punished because of my failure to use non-existent twin powers to locate him and warn him, or use telepathy to warn him, also a different PE teacher punished a boy for not having kit, despite his leg being broken, because apparently the cast didn't count as a signed note from a parent.

I threw a snowball over a teachers head and he responded with forcing me to the ground and pushing his knee into my chest, couldnt breath for about 5 seconds.
And i was about 8 when it happened.

My 7-8 grade Math teach absolutely hated me since I have never been able to split my focus between the lecture and notes, rather I was able to simply learn by watching and listening in class (naturally fairly smart + ADD). Now she had a different philosophy, she believed that every student must take notes in order to learn otherwise obviously you weren't paying attention and were being disrespectful... not really sure how as she refused to ever explain that one to me. Eventually I began sitting in the front of the class to taunt her until she decided it was time to call me out in front of everyone, instead of alone like previously, stating, "If I am up here writing the notes on the board, it is only fair that you write the notes in your book." I just laughed at her and said "no, no, no, If you want to be fair, then really only one of the people here have to copy your notes, everyone else is just a bonus for you." She didn't take this well and sent me to the school dean. He upon reading her vague report and asking me what happened, found it funny and told me though i did nothing against the rules, to try not to fight with her anymore and not go back to class that day. suffice to say i didn't listen to that. (Proud to say i ended up making her cry in the end :D )

Another of my teachers at one point told a friend of mine to "sit down and shut up" when he was in the middle of having an asthma attack and was panicking because he couldn't find an inhaler. suffice to say she didn't last to the end of the week.

You know after reading most of this thread I am seeing a lot of really stupid people who dont understand how things work and I am not talking about the teachers.

kortin:
Most of my teachers were rather stupid.

"No, wikipedia is not a valid source of information."

Listen, if you don't want us to use wikipedia, just say it. There is no reason to come up with some bullshit reason for us not to use it.

I hate to break it to you but wikipedia is not a valid source of information. Its not just because the information could be wrong its that the information can be edited. Its also because it is neither a primary or secondary source.
