We’ve heard that teaching can be pretty hard work, but sometimes it all gets a bit too much. These teachers are just done with the students, the syllabus, the school, and need a vacation just as much as you do right now…
Sometimes, the only way to get an audience (or in this case, a class) to listen to you, is to sing it out. This teacher either has dreams of becoming a famous singer, or she lost a very embarrassing bet. Either way, this class is about to hear her belt out the lesson plan in C minor.
Taking Over The Desk
This teacher has a very unique way of helping her students with their lessons. She wants to make sure that all of her students get the personal attention that they need in class. The funny thing is, the students (particularly the boy students) keep on calling her over to help them. Of course, she’s eager to lend a helping hand, and continues to come over and use whatever desk is available to sit on. Luckily, someone had a camera out at the right time.
Odd Way To Sit
To each their own, but we are pretty sure that this is not the right way to use your desk or to sit in a chair at school. This girl probably thought no one was noticing her odd choice of seating, but she was unaware of the classmate behind her documenting everything. The biggest question we have in all this: where on earth was the teacher to teach these poor students how to use a school desk?
Okay, so obviously this girl was trying to hide her behind away, hence the camouflage. But she’s obviously not doing a very good job of it, as one of her classmates noticed pretty quickly. It’s especially noticeable when she had to reach the very top of the board to erase the whole thing.
Oh No You Didn’t
You know that moment when your student just pushes you way too far? Well, this student in the front was making a lot of noise and causing a huge distraction for the rest of the students. It seems that this teacher has hit her absolute limit and is about to explode. She’s got that “if you say one more thing…” face, and even though she is trying to contain her composer, it’ll only be sseconds until she breaks.
Too Many Curves
This teacher fell into a sticky situation when she decided to wear a solid colored, tight dress to school. While she has a gorgeously curvy body, some of the parents and faculty became concerned about her outfit being too revealing and inappropriate. This actually turned into a huge media scandal, with people arguing on both sides. One thing’s for sure, the boys in the classroom probably weren’t arguing about anything.
Learning The Body
Okay so this is a very…unique method of teaching human anatomy. This teacher made a very bold choice in her anatomically correct internal organ workout suit. We’re willing to bet that at least half the class (the boy half) has never paid such good attention to their lessons in their entire lives. You can see the boys in the front row looking slightly uncomfortable, and slightly in disbelief of what their teacher is actually doing for their lesson.
Midday Math Nap
Math is hard. We all know it, though some of us are better at it than others. This girl must have either been out partying all night and didn’t sleep, or she’s just thoroughly bored by mathematics (which would be understandable). At least we’ve got this hero who took a picture of her perfect use of the entire desk’s surface, so we can admire her genius…or at least her extreme tiredness. Maybe we’ll try this next time, we’re sure no one will notice.
Looking For Love
These are two teachers who work at the school together. But one of the teachers (hint hint, it’s the guy) is trying desperately hard to get the attention of his female colleague. Of course, she is very obviously not having any of his advances, and quite frankly, looks kind of bored. Luckily this student caught on to what was happening, and documented it on Snapchat for the whole world to see and either laugh or sympathize with this guy.
I will set your paper on fire
It’s fair to say that we tried to get away with everything when we were kids. Yep, we’d try and fall asleep in class without the teacher noticing and we’d try and increase our font size when we had to write a 10-page essay. Genius, right? Well, it seems teachers aren’t as stupid as we think (funny, that). In fact, some are so in tune with our little tricks that they’re getting pretty fed up. Including this teacher.
Ah yes. Maybe if I bury myself underneath all of my school supplies, the teacher will think i’m just buried in my work. This is what we’re assuming her thought process was when she piled all of her notebooks, her calculator, and her pencil on top of her head before drifting off to sleep.
A Funny School
For their Senior Prank, two students planned an epic joke for their whole school. They decided to slightly alter and move the letters around on their high school sign to ended up removing letters to create ‘LOL High School’. We hope the teachers and faculty found this as amusing as the students did, but they probably didn’t…
There are some teachers who will do anything to help their students reach their full potential – but there’s only so much you can do. After all, you can only hope those who help themselves (look at us, we should become a teacher!) This teacher became so fed up with marking assignments that had been handed in after the deadline, that he made a tough decision (okay, it wasn’t really that tough). Any late assignments would be thrown straight in the trash.
While we were at school, it’s fair to say that we gave up with our studies. Yep, who needs grades, ey? (Just kidding, go to school, kids) But it’s not just the students who give up. Although teachers try their best to educate the youngsters and push them in the direction of success, it doesn’t always happen. Sometimes, you just need to tell them the answer, rather than waiting for them to answer it wrong. That way, everyone wins.
Unfortunately, it’s frowned upon for teachers to down a whole bottle of alcohol while they’re teaching. Apparently, you can’t drown yourself in coffee either – so trying to find fuel to keep a teacher going is pretty darn difficult. Luckily, one teacher has managed to find the perfect drink to get them through the day and allow them to deal with their students in a calm and collected manner. Nope, it’s students’ tears. We don’t know whether this is downright weird or genius.
Introduction to Psychology
You’d think that college teachers would have a bit more motivation than those in high school, right? Well, not quite. In fact, Dr. Lopez was done with his new class before they had even started. Yep, as he prepared his presentation for his new class of Psychology students, he gave them a (very, very) brief outline of what to expect from the course and took a roll call, before getting them all to GTFO. You wouldn’t need to tell us twice.
Remember the Alamo
For many aspiring teachers, it’s the thought of inspiring the next generation of teachers, writers, scientists and historians that gets them through the (pretty rubbish) day. In their eyes, if they can inspire just one child – they have done their job and fulfilled their duties. So, teachers will often give their students main points to remember in life. Things like ‘treat others how you would want to be treated’ or ‘remember the Alamo.’ Why? We’re not sure, but it’s history, bro.
The substitute treecher
It’s no secret that all rules and regulations go out of the window as soon as a substitute teacher walks into the room. Students take it upon themselves to make the substitute’s life as difficult as possible – that’s just the way it is. When the teacher of this classroom became so fed up with his students, he invited a new kind of substitute into their room. The substitute treecher. We bet these students couldn’t be-leaf this when they saw it…
When you wish upon a star…
One of the most important aspects of being a teacher is imparting wisdom onto the young minds of today’s generation, and filling them with hope about the future – but it seems this teacher didn’t get that memo. Instead of telling his students to wish upon a star and wait for it to come true (like any normal, hopefully, adult), this teacher decided to teach a little bit of physics and crush everyone’s dreams at the same time.
No Student Bodies
These students decided that they didn’t want to show up for school one day, but they still wanted to be counted as present. So what did they do? Well, they sent their uniforms to sit at their desks and hold their places for them. Of course, the teacher realized immediately that something important was missing from all of his students…which of course was the students themselves. But they certainly did a good job of positioning all of their jackets in their chairs.
Your teacher, the hulk
If you’re a student or a teacher, you’ll know that they’ll be AT LEAST one student each lesson who will ask a stupid question. Sometimes there might even be two questions. However, there’s only so much a teacher can take before he turns into the hulk, rips off his shirt and answers their stupid question without saying a word. Instead, he’s letting his T-Shirt do the talking. Because it’s in the syllabus, y’all. Read a book for once.
These students got together to decide what to be for halloween, and they decided on an absolutely epic costume choice. All of them dressed like their teacher, each with a mask of his face which they held up to their own for the whole day. Eventually, when the teacher came in, he entered into a room full of himself. That’s enough to scare the pants off of anyone, teacher or not.
Thanks For The Support
Most senior classes decide to do a prank at the end of their last year in high school. These students wanted to thank their teachers for the four years of education and support they provided for them, but they did in a pretty metaphorical way. The students bought a load of bras and hung them around the school. They then made a huge sign saying “Thank for the support.” At least they learned about metaphors in English class.
A class of seniors thought it would be hilarious to hire a Mariachi band to follow their Headmistress around school the WHOLE day. This is hilarious and although it seems it would be annoying, this teacher didn’t mind at all- she actually thought it was pretty funny and tweeted the picture to her own twitter account.
The open house menu
It’s fair to say that there is one day in the school calendar that is hated by both students and teachers alike. Yep, we’re talking about parent-teacher meetings. During this time of year, the students realize that they really haven’t made an impression AT ALL at school, and the teacher realizes that they still don’t know certain kids in their classes because they just don’t make an effort. So, this teacher has resorted to bribery, to help them both out. Genius.
A heck load of paperwork
One of the main reasons we steered clear of a career in teaching is because we could NOT deal with the paperwork. Grading papers until 11 each night? Nah, you’re good. Nevertheless, those who wish to become teachers have to simply accept their fate and get on with it – but that doesn’t mean they do it willingly. In fact, this teacher has found an ingenious way to grade all of his papers in one fell swoop. They’re probably rubbish anyway.
This smart idea came about from a teacher who claims her students were willing to be shamed! It was mainly for silly mistakes, such as forgetting to write their name on the top of their paper or forgetting to put a negative sign in front of their answer but this definitely made mistakes happen less often in this class, even though the class found it funny.
All tied up
If you’re a teacher, you’ll know there is nothing worse than seeing one of your students fall asleep in your classroom. Of course, there are some teachers who will take this as a personal insult, but there are others who will see the slumber as an opportunity to wreak their revenge on his class. This teacher decided to help out the snoozing student by re-tying his shoes… together… so he couldn’t walk. We hope someone filmed him waking up.
Walkens not accepted
Although teachers may seem pretty boring, some of them do still have a sense of humor – and considering how much they get paid (hint: not a lot) we have to give them credit for that. These guys work all hours of the day and spend numerous office hours pretending to give a shiznit about your life (it’s a tough job, y’know). However, they draw the line when people just saunter into their office without making an appointment. Because Walkens are not accepted.
April Fools Day is no joke in South Korea. It’s known that the students pull the best pranks on their teachers. This prank was taken very far as not only did the students re-arrange the classroom, they also lay down on the floor and waited in this very position until their teacher walked into the room.
An application form
Although we don’t know what they teach at teacher school, we can imagine they have numerous lessons on how to encouragement to failing students. However, there is only so much positive encouragement you can give to someone who constantly fails their tests and doesn’t study. What more can you do? Well, this teacher thought they could at least help this student out by giving them an F and helping them get a job by giving them a McDonald’s application form.
Definitely not the most original idea but these sticky notes definitely grab our attention with the vast amount of notes in so many bright colors. This class of seniors pranked their computer class teacher by ‘decorating’ the room with rainbows and hearts. We might be right to believe Mario from Nintendo is here, made of notes.
Always question the man
Okay, we’re not sure who we’re more impressed with. On the one hand, we have to give this student for Kudos for questioning their test. Why should they impress the teacher? What good will that achieve? On the other hand, this is the coolest teacher ever. Instead of reprimanding this student, they gave them four bonus points for questioning the man. We wish we had this teacher when we were younger; our grades would have been VERY different.
Taking a nap
Let’s be honest, being a teacher isn’t like working a normal job. Instead of working 9-5 it’s more like 7-late and then you have marking and preparations to add on top of that. It’s not easy, y’know – and it’s pretty darn tiring. It seems this teacher was way too overtired to deal with his class on this day, and we don’t really blame him. He gets a nap, and the students get a chance to play on their phones. It’s a win-win.
When you’re grading papers, you can almost guarantee that there will be at least one student who will try and be a comedy genius with their answer – like this cool dude, who answered his math quiz with a #YOLO. Obviously, this teacher wasn’t impressed with their use of this niche abbreviation or their apparent lack of interest in their education, so replied to their answer with their own inspiring hashtags. We hope this student is looking to their minimum wage future…
KILL IT WITH FIRE
No matter how annoyed some teachers are, they will always try and keep it in. However, we all know what happens when you bottle up your emotions – and it normally involves an eruption of mega-rage at the most inappropriate moments. This teacher seemed to have reached the end of his tether that day, and we feel pretty sorry for the poor wasp who just happened to get in his way because the poor guy got burnt to a crisp.
Please ask to play the piano
We bet it’s pretty tedious for a music teacher to constantly hear the same awful tune on the piano every time someone walks into the classroom. After all, there’s only so much of ‘Chopsticks’ you can listen to before you go mad. So, this teacher decided to put up a sign for his students, to make them aware that they need to ask before they can play the piano – unless they’re Mozart, of course. But he knows they’re not Mozart.
When your job is to inspire the generation, and all they care about is the latest Animal Crossing app on their iPad, it can get pretty darn depressing. Some teachers are able to keep in their frustration and their sadness until they get home, but this teacher just couldn’t keep it in. Instead, he decided to lay on the table, with his head in his hands, and let it all out. It’s good to cry every once in a while, y’know.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, it’s fair to say that you’ve watched at least one episode of Game of Thrones. However, it’s more likely that you’re utterly obsessed. Because of this, you’re pretty protective of your favorite characters and like to keep up with the show as it comes out. So, the objective is to avoid spoilers – but this teacher is threatening his students with spoilers and deaths if they don’t listen. Harsh.
Back in the day, teachers didn’t have to worry so much about distractions. Sure, kids may have thrown the odd paper airplane every now and then, but teachers in today’s day and age have a heck load of technology to contend with. Obviously, kids are pretty attached to their cell phones, especially in class. Some teachers are getting so fed up with kids staring at their crotches and smiling they’ve decided to do something about it, with a strongly worded presentation.
Messing with the kids
The life of a teacher is pretty darn boring. They go to work each day, they teach kids who don’t give a fudge about their education, they go home, they mark papers, and they repeat. Most of the time, they need a bit of fun in their lives, but fun is pretty hard to come by – unless you make it yourself. This teacher decided to do that in the most messed up way possible. We’re glad we’ve never been taught by him.
Alongside texting in class, teachers also have to deal with the fact that these battery powered cell phones will also run low on juice. Because these students need to keep up to date with their Instagram feed and their Snapchat streak, many students plug their phones on to charge – much to their teacher’s dismay. This teacher became incredibly fed up when his air freshener was unplugged, because he doesn’t want to smell y’all stink because your phone is dying.
Y’all test scores had me dead
Let’s be honest, being a teacher isn’t easy. You’re tired all the time, you’re stressed, and then you have to deal with failing students and struggling test scores. In fact, this teacher was so done with his failing class that he had to prove a point – that y’all test scores had me dead. Can we just admire his commitment for a second?
A teacher’s office hours
As well as their full schedule and teaching hours, many teachers also have to offer their student’s office hours (eugh). This means the kids can go and offload their worries and their stresses, or ask questions about a recent exam or essay. Although this benefits the students, the teachers don’t get much out of it – so why do they have to do it? Well, this teacher decided enough was enough and got somebody else to stand in for him.
Time Will Pass
Everyone knows that during class, most of it is spent looking at the clock, hoping the time could go a fraction quicker than it is in real time. This teacher pulled an artistic prank on his students, making sure their eyes catch the clock and reminding them to listen and concentrate in hope they will pass the class.
The end of the semester
Let’s be honest, the end of the semester is hard for everyone. Both the teachers and the students have battled through all-nighters, intense workloads, and a heck load of brain activity – so you need something a bit light-hearted. This teacher had thought he’d made the perfect test for his students until he heard them counting up to ten out loud. Read the list properly, and you’ll get what we mean. Did you fall for it, too?
Picture day is a big day for everyone. Our parents, grandparents and distant family own a school picture of us somewhere in the house. Girls do their hair and so do guys. It’s a big deal. Especially at this school, where this teacher got on board with the picture day hype- he even brought a bird as a prop, making his picture stand-out worthy.
What grade do you want?
Most of us dream of a world where we can grade our own papers and give ourselves and A++++++ for all of our hard work (okay, we just copied it from Wikipedia, but still). However, that’s not really the way the world of education works – or is it? The teacher of this school is just about to retire, and so done with her student’s inability to write like a normal human being. So, she’s just given up. Fair enough.
Wannabe teachers often dream about their movie moment in the classroom – like when Coach Carter magically transformed a bunch of failing basketball players, or when John Keating won over the students and parents with his unorthodox teaching methods. In reality, this doesn’t happen. Students fail their tests, they don’t care, and some don’t even try. This teacher couldn’t deal with the lack of potential in his class that he just upped and left. But he didn’t use the door – he used the window.
This class of high school senior had to do a filming project for their final. The students would film each other being interviewed around various parts of the school. The teachers, however, thought they’d spice up this project by making ridiculous faces and dance moves anytime they found a student with a camera.
This teacher wanted to make the right impression on the first day of school, to show all of his students what he was about. Apparently, this teacher feels more at home in the Middle Ages as a knight, and so he decided to dress up in a full knight’s costume, sword and all.
It’s a pretty known rule in school that cellphones are not allowed, so when a phone rings in class, it usually ends with it being taken away, and a trip to the principal’s office. However, this teacher has his students actually answer the call on speaker, so the whole class can be warned about leaving their phones on loud.
If it were socially acceptable, we’d definitely rock up to class in our giraffe onesie or our favorite pajamas. Unfortunately, school regulations are pretty strict in terms of what we can and can’t wear. However, it seems this teacher is so done with the semester he doesn’t care what the school board will say. If he wants to teach in his stripy pajamas and his slippers, he’s going to darn well do it. Comfort over style, after all.
