I might be late, but I too have witnessed the craziness of high school math teachers. Although I never had her (she transferred to another school before I got into upper grades), I heard that she was a real witch. Would yell at students for no reason, throw chalk at them, call them stupid for having trouble with difficult concepts, etc. She was also banging the vice principal, which might be the reason she was never fired.

I also had a teacher in elementary school who was hugely pregnant and snapped on a student during class. I can't remember what exactly it was that he had done, but she grabbed ahold of his desk (one of the ones with the chair attached in one piece) and pushed him from the front of the classroom all the way to the back. It was actually kind of hilarious :D

Ok, obviously bully teacher sucks and deserved to be fired 29 years ago. But seriously, how many farkers could keep their cool as a teacher? Lecturing for 3-4 hours per day, trying to get 30 kids to stop daydreaming about Playstation long enough to do a sentance diagram...Most of these kids are children of people you consider unworthy of breeding. You know you'd take a swipe at one eventually...

In high school I had a class that I needed to graduate. I made damm sure that I did everything needed in class. Come the end of the last week of class the "teacher" pulled me aside and she was sorry but because I didn't turn in any homework I would fail and therefore wouldn't graduate. This same teacher had singled me out to read from our weekly writing assignments nearly every time and always commented about how imaginative they were (A+). I pointed out this fact but she said she didn't remember even one being turned in. I went to the class and asked them in front of her if they remembered me having read the assignments in class. To a person they said yes. The teacher said it didn't make a difference and I still would fail the class. That is when I exploded and called her a biatch that couldn't teach her way out of a paper bag, she told me to leave the class and wait in the hall. I said fark You and left. I went straight to the office and told my counselor what had happened. He said that we both knew that she was a PE coach teaching an English class ( funny since he was the head football coach )and he would take care of everything. I passed.
This teacher I later found out had quit teaching several times only to return when everything else, like her marriage and her job cleaning up the Exxon oil spill, failed. What a loser.

Two things.

First, the PTA or equivalent where you live should have "open-meetings" where parents are able to air any grievances. Making it known to the administration that you will be letting everyone there, including other parents, know with pictures as well as a report from a pediatrician or family Dr, and child psychologist (even if it isnt true) exactly what has been going on in that class, will almost definitely get a response. Even if its just a talk with that teacher by the administration to knock it the hell off.

Second. If all else fails, do what everyone hates to hear, and talk to a lawyer. Even if it cost a couple dollars for the lawyer to call someone in the school system to let them now that with marks left on a childs arm that alone is proof enough for a lawsuit.....Not to mention the fact that with any number of children in the class there is likely to be more then one that recalls that or other incidents which could be considered "abuse" of one type or other.

Normally I hate lawyers and the BS nonsense they end up causing. When it comes to protecting kids though you do what's necessary.

But the question has to be asked.

How well did the students perform mathematically?
 
2007-05-29 11:58:33 PM  
When we grew up and went to school
There were certain teachers
Who would hurt the children any way they could
By pouring their derision on anything they did
Exposing every weakness however carefully hid by the kid

But in the town it was well known
That when they went home at night
Their fat and psychopathic wives
Would thrash them within inches of their lives

Seems appropriate

And I hope that if she is ever in need of the care of another, that that person erroneously miscalculates the dosage of some pain medication.

Sounds like she was way out of line, but at the same time I'm in the camp of the farker that asked how many of you all would make it as teachers. Especially these days. I did my share of bad stuff in middle & high school, but kids in school these days are the most self-centered, spoiled, entitled, bratty, disrespectful shiats I've ever come across. Not ALL of them mind you, but enough to make most teachers' lives a living hell. It takes a special kind of patience to deal with them. I teach. I know.

I had 2 real psychos in elementary school. The Kindergarten teacher who wouldn't let us go to the bathroom and let us pee ourselves and then made fun of us for it in front of the whole class (I was one of many.) She also liked to call us dummies.
6th grade teacher was a real piece of work. She grouped where we sat based on her opinion of us. She had a section for kids with bad personal hygeine, the smart kids/teacher's children, poor kids that didn't stink and "dumb kids". If any of us did something she didn't like she'd make us move our desk by the "stinky kids" She would accuse some of us of all kinds of stuff. Like one of my friends, smelling like pee who didn't and this one kid was acting up and she told the whole class about his parents divorcing. (she knew it was upsetting him and was very sarcastic about it.) The kid tried to cut himself in the bathroom and disappeared after that. One day my dad came in and told her to basically get off my case because I was a creative genius and didn't even need her class. She called me "creative genius" in a sarcastic way for the rest of the school year. GO DAD =/

My grade 3 teacher was new to the school (she was also VP), so we were the first class to have her. Over the course of first half of the year it was clear, even to 10 year olds, that she was coming a little unglued. One day at lunch, she heard the school bully call one of the like 2 black students in our school a attractive and successful African-American. Now, we had an open concept school, meaning there were no walls between the classes, so the whole school watched her flip out, drag the kid over to her desk, pull a picture out of her purse, and scream at him "This man is a very good friend of mine! Would you call him a attractive and successful African-American? WOULD YOU CALL HIM A attractive and successful African-American???"

Turns out she had a pretty healthy pill habit, and she was done after that. The admin felt so bad for us that the principal sat us down and asked if we had a favorite supply teacher. When we answered pretty much unanimously, they brought her in to teach us for the rest of the year.

i'm pretty sure that if the school administrators find out that a teacher has been immoral and oppressive her entire career they can take away all her retirement money and give her a taintpunch

/that's what she deserves anyway, a McJob for her retirement

Well, I have a few mean teacher stories, even more dumb teacher stories...but I do recall (along with a few friends) making a substitute teacher run from our fifth grade classroom in tears.

Also, in high school, I would have been one of the first students to suffer from the then new rule that you could not receive credit for a class if you had more than X number of absences, regardless of your actual grade (I was passing the class easily). I had Chicken Pox my Senior year, for chrissakes, and they wanted me to go to summer school to pass one class all over again?

I set up a meeting with the male Dean of Students seeking permission to walk with my class. I cried prettily, and as soon as his pen was off of the paper, my eyes dried right up.

"I think I've been had..." he said. "You're right!" I confirmed, and let him watch me walk right out of his office, with the required, signed paperwork in hand.

So I guess the score might be even in my case.

/this teacher still sucks balls, though. Deep down she knows she's shiat.
 
2007-05-30 12:17:56 AM  
Yeah, sadly teachers are no better than little kids sometimes. Speaking as a former middle school pariah, even the teachers joined in on giving me sh*t.

I specifically hated Mr. Duckett. Sad motherf*cker. He picked on me like everyone else but then everyone picked on him because he'd whine to a roomful of trapped 5th graders about his ex-wife and distant 12 year old daughter.

Duckett also put on this hilariously lame class play called "Psalty the Singing Songbook" in which he played a large blue prayer book that sang.

F*cking catholic school. Growing up an atheistic jew in that mess gave me real perspective.

/rant over.

My 8th grade teacher told me I'd never amount to anything and her boyfriend, the principal, once smacked me for talking back to her when she was wrong. Ain't my fault the biatch never heard of Hammurabi. I was so happy when her husband found out she was schtupping the boss.
 
2007-05-30 12:18:22 AM  
heh.. I went to a school were corporate punishment was not only allowed but encouraged. Some of those farking teachers were downright sadistic... but creative! One of them had you beat yourself up by striking your shin with a wooden stick. Kids got wise and they hid newspaper in their socks. Trick was that you had to do hit yourself hard enough or else he'd do it for you. That motherfarker went through a ton of metre sticks throughout his career there. The vice principal, quite the charmer, threw me to the ground one time by grabbing me by the hair and tossing me like a crash test dummy. Why? because I'd walked between him and another student who were talking. I never told my parents because it was pretty much accepted. OH how I would love to have a drink with him, and have a nice chat.

Rancid

What that teacher did was completely wrong. However what you did was very rude. I also have a feeling you had not been taught this or if you had you were infact testing the teacher.

It appears that some manners are not taught to the young these days.
 
2007-05-30 12:20:28 AM  
Ooooooh. Can I play too? My psycho teacher just came jumping back into my mind.

1985, third grade, Mrs. Giddens. Gigantic black woman. At least 6'0" and with a set or missile tatas to poke your eyes out with. Huge hair she kept permed to about six inches above her head. Too much makeup. Very intimidating for a third grader.

She always kept the AC on super cold, even in the winter, and told us to suck up and wear long sleeves and pants, even if it was hot outside. I think it was to keep the temperature of hell down.

She was known for picking one or two kids a year to relentlessly pick on. My year, it was a boy named Matthew. He was a smart kid, quiet, sweet and kinda cute. Mrs. Giddens thought he was a momma's boy and picked on him constantly. I remember her actually calling him a little fagg*t once (we didn't know what it meant). She worked on him over time until he cried and shook all the time.

His mom caught on and came in to whoop ass. Just so happened that right before the meeting, Mrs. Giddens got a call that her husband had been killed in a truck accident. So everyone gave her tons of sympathy, and no one ever did anything about it.

I found out a few years ago that Matthew had moved away with his family and hung himself when he was twelve or thirteen. We all blamed Mrs. Giddens.

On my own side, she did like to pick on me a bit. We had those desks that had the open drawers underneath. If your space wasn't in absolutely military perfect condition, she would dump the whole thing out on the ground. One time, a paper of mine got crunched up in the back and she heard it. She came over, picked me up in the chair, set me down two feet away, and threw the desk down so loud they heard next door. She then went through every paper in my desk, looked at it, and decided whether to crumple it up or not. She destroyed a few personal drawings and short stories I had, saying that if it was in her classroom, she could throw it away.

---------------------------------------------

In the fifth grade, I had a teacher named Mrs. Rawls who liked teasing kids too, especially the new kids. I moved to that school district that year and became public enemy number one to her. She absolutely HATED that I was as smart or smarter than the shining stars of the school. How dare I come in and already be at the top of the class?

Anyway, I have a deep voice for a chick...runs in the family. It was deep when I was ten, and still gets me called "Sir" over the phone. Every time I answered a question, she would mock my voice, making all the retards in the class go into fits laughing. We had to learn civil rights songs and sing them in class. After I finished mine, she whipped out a tape recorder and played mine back, saying I sounded like a crying boy. Nevermind that the chorus teacher thought I had an amazing singing voice.

I also have a little bounce in my walk due to a minor birth defect. I left to go to the restroom one day and came back to see her holding a "who can walk like her the best?" competition.

Hated that beeatch too.

I'm remarkably well adjusted though. For a Farker.

i had a horrible 5th grade teacher, made my life at school and home a living hell. I hope she dies a slow and painful death. I had another teacher in 6th grade who was just a bitter old spinster. A couple of friends and I missed a day of school because another friend of our's mother had pass away. When we did go back to school and told her why were gone, she said, i swear to god, "oh so he's single now. You'll have to introduce me sometime." And that is when i lost faith in all teachers. Until I became one. I try my best to support my kids and i think i did right by my seniors as they tell me I'm their favorite teacher. I love those damn wiener kids.
 
2007-05-30 12:32:28 AM  
Happened to me twice, personally. If you count semi-isolated incidents, it happened about a dozen times.

The only time a teacher was regularly abusive to me was in First Grade. My teacher, Lynn Scothern, was truly abusive. I remember being picked up and dragged by one arm a few times. If I was disruptive, I was locked in the coat closet. What kid isn't going to be resentful toward a teacher after that teacher was abusive?

Some people shouldn't teach small children.

That whole thing taught me to hold a grudge.

The second time, I was made fun of by a high school teacher for using the word tawdry. She wasn't the sharpest tool in the shed, but the idea of a female trying to dickwave is funny. Out of that entire class, I was the only one who graduated. It was one of those classes where you put kids who aren't normal. Y'know. A class that's "Special Ed" on paper in order to get generous grants.

Whatever. At least I got class credit for fixing electronic crap that broke while the others did whatever they did. I have no real regrets, seeing as it was a way of witnessing what's on the other side of the coin.

Another strategy would be to call the principal or school board and tell them that if this teacher is teaching by the end of the week, that you will take those pictures to the police and that you will press charges, let alone the media exposure it will stir up.

If that teacher is still teaching, expect a personal greenlight on Fark in the next week ;)

Teachers are people too, and they have all the same faults and virtues as a normal person. Factor this in with:

Low Pay
(some exceptions. if you know where, please tell me so I can send a resume.)

Disease
(100+ kids means someone always has SOMETHING contagious.)

Error-Filled Texts
(Evolution is a theory,yes. So is gravity, but they aren't trying to mandate vigorous flapping of the arms be taught in case gawd stops enforcing up and down. )

Lack of Disciplinary Tools
(There is a reason that great teachers throughout recorded history have had a penchant for discipline: it helps you learn.)



That's a very high stress job if you care about the kids, and an even higher stress job if you don't. Many of you who say your Nth grade teacher was evil because ... should take a deep breath and think about how you would have reacted if you were in their shoes before you post about how evil they were.
 
2007-05-30 01:08:48 AM  
My most hated teacher was my 11th grade algebra II instructor, Ms. Paine (my you roast in hell you fat biatch). This woman would have students go to the board to work out problems she put there (reasonable), but then would make you stand there sometimes for the entire class period if you couldn't work it correctly and berate you in front of the entire class. She would also take any failing homework or tests and make sure that the entire class knew what your grade was and how you did.

Now, I wasn't exactly the best of students in high school (or my first time in college for that matter) as I had several issues I was dealing with at home (long story). So, I didn't do too well in her class and had to repeat the second semester of work in the 12th grade. The first day of class she made me and a girl who had failed stand up and told the class that they better work hard in her class or they would be repeating her class like "these two losers".

Anyway, skip forward a couple of decades and I am back in school working on getting into law school and was totally stressed out about having to take calculas. Luckily I ended up with a great instructor who did a great job of teaching and I ended up with an A.

So, yes, bad teachers can make just as much of an impact on someone's life as a good teacher ... maybe more so.

2007-05-30 01:24:41 AM  
dracos31: I had a math teacher in 8th grade that tried to fail me for putting a slash through zeros (puts onion on belt) because back then in the days of the Pet 2000 computer you learned to write code out that way.

Teacher didn't like it when I had the principal call the Computer Teacher in to vouch for me being right.

What is it about Math teachers that makes them all crazy? I think it's the dancing numbers in their dreams.


Dude! Me too! I totally got hauled on for slashing my zeros, as that's how my Apple II did it.
 
2007-05-30 01:27:11 AM  
No physical bullies, but two women who hated me for reasons unknown....

Ms. Morgan, 7th grade: I had a guy friend I ate lunch with every day. She used to come to our table and mock us for the whole cafeteria to hear. "Oh, look, she's sitting next to her little boyfriend again, how cute!" She would stand there and insult me and mock me while I got madder and madder. She just wanted to see if she could make me cry I think. She also used to make it a point to get me in trouble if I ever crossed her path, even if I was on a free period and helping a teacher or doing something else innocuous, she would harass me about what I was doing and try to get me in trouble with the other teachers. She lobbied to get me banned from an area of the school, because I would occasionally go and visit a former teacher there (and the former teacher was cool with me visiting). One day she sent me to the principal for putting a slice of cheese inside my friend's notebook (I don't know why on earth I put the cheese in the notebook, but the point is who cares???? It was my friend and I was goofing off!) The principal was so confused when I explained why I was there, so fortunately he just gave me a half-assed lecture and let me go.

Mrs. Ross, 11th grade, honors English: She consistently gave me C's in her class. I was pretty much an honor roll student so I wanted to pull up my C to a B. But no matter how hard I worked, she would still give me crappy grades on anything subjective, even if I aced all the quizzes and tests. The more I tried to improve my grade, the more she fought to keep it low. She failed me for "class participation" and every time I said something in class, she would ignore it or ridicule me for it. So I started making a checkmark in my notebook every time I raised my hand and answered a question. I forced myself to participate meaningfully despite her insults, and I had an average of four checks per day for over a month. She still had me down for a D in participation so I showed her my tally and told her I wanted a better grade. She raised that grade but started failing all the papers I wrote. We started doing poetry and I really sucked at analyzing poetry so I had no hope there. In frustration, I wrote a paper about how people read too much into poems and how I could make up a bunch of stuff about how the poem symbolized death or the oppression of women but in reality I though the poem pretty much sucked. She sent that paper to my guidance counselor with a note that she wanted me to drop the class. I flat out refused to drop and had to involve my parents and guidance counselor to keep me in the class. I pulled up my average to a hard-won B-. I have never worked so hard for a grade in my life, just to spite her.

Honestly, I think both experiences did prepare me for life a little bit. Sometimes someone you have to be nice to just hates you for no good reason. It sucks, esp if they are in a position of authority over you, but there's not much you can do except keep your composure, work hard, and know where to draw the line of what you'll take.
 
2007-05-30 01:35:39 AM  
Kind of a minor thing really, but it was big enough at that time to make an impression on me, probably because I was usually a teacher's pet. I still remember her name, even though she was only my teacher for two weeks or so in 4th grade: Mrs. Angus. They had a new split class and I was transferred to that soon. In hindsight I probably shouldn't be surprised that I was one of the ones transferred, I don't think she quite knew how to handle me, since I was younger than everyone else. I liked my new teacher better, for the two months I was in -that- class till we moved out of state *sigh*

Anyway, we were doing some kind of five senses unit, and we were in groups. My group had to sniff vinegar while another got to taste marshmallow - well, of course I was gonna make that "unh! so unfair!" noise :P And she snapped at me to 'control my emotions'... yeah, okay, you tell a seven-year-old to quietly accept that someone else is going to have marshmallow while you inhale vinegar.

I guess I was pretty lucky altogether, though, if that's my worst story, though even that little thing did have an effect on me as a kid. I don't think teachers realize sometimes just how much they can influence a kid, but at the same time they are people too and can't be perfect.
 
2007-05-30 01:41:41 AM  
I was sexually harassed by a male teacher in 7th and 8th grade. I reported every single incident and even had other students as witnesses (most also victims). The school did nothing about any of this pedo's bullshiat. Oh, except have a closed-door meeting to decide if they could find any grounds to expell me and the other targeted kids to cover their own asses (expelled juvenile = unreliable witness). One of the teachers at the meeting was so disgusted at her co-workers that she told us about it.

I got lucky. My parents could afford to send me to a private school so I wouldn't drop out. The other kids stopped showing up to school and officially dropped out on their 16th birthdays.

I can't think of a single thing another kid did to me in school that would still infuriate me now, but when I think about some of the things "adults" would do to children at that school, I understand Columbine.

HM_Murdock, I love you, and I want to have your baby.

I was always so desperate for approval that I was teachers' pet, even for the shiatcrazy ones, so I have a dearth of crazy teacher stories.

But my mother showed up for her college German class once to find the room half-full of students and the professor facing the blackboard from about six inches away and grumbling at it in German. He was always a bit crazy, so my mother and the other students assumed this was some sort of test and sat quietly, waiting for him to finish.

Ten minutes or so after class should have started, they realized something was wrong. They tried to talk to him, but he just kept mumbling German to the blackboard. My mother went out and found the department chair, a wheelchair-bound man who quickly wheeled his way down to the classroom, took the guy by the hand, and left. She says she'll never forget that image of the man in the wheelchair awkwardly propelling himself down the hall, leading another man who was having a psychotic break.

/Prof was immediately institutionalized and died there.

Something similar happened when my son was in elementary school. One of the first grade teachers bullied, shouted & constantly screamed in the faces of her class of very frightened & intimidated children. She seemed to think that they should automatically know exactly how to behave in school, in all situations, no exceptions, even though it was their first week in first grade. Let me add here that at this time this particular school system did not offer kindergarten, so for many of these children, it was their first taste of school & what a bitter taste it was. The first time I saw her mistreat a child was during a fire drill the secound week of school. The procedure was that the kids left the building through the designated exit and stood in line facing away from the building. This was the first fire drill experience for these little kids, so some turned their heads to look around at the other classes & Ms Biatch was instantly in that child's face screaming at them. She frightened several children so badly that they didn't want to go to school & some actually peed themselves in fear. I was a parent volunteer at the school library & witnessed this biatch's behavior towards these very frightened children. The children that were brave enough told their parents about her & they complained. I reported & documented each incident that I witnessed over a 5 year period, yet she still was teaching when my son moved from elementary to middle school. The reason...tenure. Tenure can make it literally impossible to fire the worst, most incompetent & most abusive teachers. This teacher is dead now & I hope she gets the punishment she deserves for how she treated these little kids.

It was a third grade teacher and a freshman Science teacher for me. Mainly the third grade teacher. She was so awful to me, I started stuttering. She would make me stand in the coat closet, god i hated that coat closet, damn dark place. She just thought that every damn mean thing she did to me was funny. She tried to convince my parents I was retarded, my parents had me tested and took me to a shrink and he told them there was nothing wrong with me except for the fact that I was bored. I remember my mother going to my brownie meeting ( it was a very important one, something about getting my pins) and I wasn't there, and she came looking for me and found me on the side of the school crying and crying I finally told her everything on down to her making fun of my clothes, I remember my mother wearing a nice dress and sitting down in the dirt next to me putting her arms around me and telling me that things were going to be different. Next day, both parents were at the school and the teacher was not there too much longer after that. Took years and years after that for my stuttering to go away and I still stutter sometimes. Hated that teacher and still do.

Honestly, I think both experiences did prepare me for life a little bit. Sometimes someone you have to be nice to just hates you for no good reason. It sucks, esp if they are in a position of authority over you, but there's not much you can do except keep your composure, work hard, and know where to draw the line of what you'll take.


We have a winnah!

I'm late I know... but instead of sharing the sad stories I have of crazy teachers I've got a semi-funny one to share:

We had one teacher in 8th-9th grade who was a total wack-job. One day in PE class we went outside to play football (soccer). And like always there's this big ol' net with all the soccer balls in it that is emptied out and we all gleefully kick them into the goal. Like kids do when they see a ball...

So does this big quiet guy called Palle. He's one of these big farmer kids, who never says anything. but is a genuinely good kid. The thing is that he really hit the ball good and hit the teacher smack in the face, glasses flying severeal yards.
And what does this supposedly collected authority of a grown-up man do? He proceeds to scream "Who did that? You could've killed me, you son of a biatch!" When poor Palle raises his arm the psycho starts running towards him, saliva frothing around his mouth still screaming about how he could have been dead. Palle looked like he was the one who was about to die though.

Finally the teacher left tears, snot, and spittle drippling from all sorts of places and we didn't see him again. Mental meltdown.

I thought it was funny anyways, but I dont think poor Palle started speaking much up after that incident.

My 5th grade teacher always made us eat our peas at lunchtime. We all hated them, but he made us eat them no matter what. At the end of the year I won something where I got to throw a pie at his face. Before I did I said, "This is for the peas." I threw the pie and the whole class cheered. He had his two 5 year old daughters there. They cried like little girls.

I know it's late to the party, but...
If I were you I would demand that at least a letter of reprimand go into this woman's file. If the school refuses tell them you are going to file charges. Show the police the pics of your kids arm and call the press. A teacher should never grab a kid hard enough to leave bruises.
The problem with bully teachers is that every school year is a do over. The administration just looks to September, your kid is gone , problem solved.
The one thing schools fear is having a scandal.
As an employee she does have rights, but so do you.
Good Luck

What that teacher did was completely wrong. However what you did was very rude. I also have a feeling you had not been taught this or if you had you were infact testing the teacher.

It appears that some manners are not taught to the young these days.

..............

Excellent characterization! How'bout, I didn't even notice they were talking to each other, and out of nowhere, motherfarker grabs me by the hair and launches me 10 feet away? Any teacher that hits a kid because of doing something "very rude" is a farking scumbag asshole douchebag and doesn't deserve any sympathy or respect. Testing the teacher? good one. Those bastards ran a tight ship and they'd look for any excuse to lay down a paddlin'. If I was to really test a teacher, I would just have punched one in the face.

I had an English teacher that was a royal pill. She used to pride herself on not owning a TV - you know the type.

Everything had to be HER way or it was failed. Even the "creative" writing where you are essentially writing your own fiction. I remember writing one hell of a fantasy (I was into D&D at the time) and showing to to my mom, who made copies and let friends at her job read it. Glowing reviews all around.

Mrs. Teacher was DISGUSTED. "Such things have no place in literature". I disagreed, in the language of a teenage student.

A meeting was called. I didnt go. The first thing my mother said after she got home was,"What a BIATCH!" and mom likes everybody. She sat me down and told me to keep right on doing what I was doing.

In the final exams before graduation (where the tests are graded overseas), I was one of the few who got an "A".

Bullying is kind of the pet issue in schools these days, but bullying by teachers is never addressed and I think it's a huge problem, especially in elementary school because little kids often don't know when their teacher is not acting appropriately.

My first bullying teacher was my grade one teacher Mrs. Chaudry. She separated the kids into three levels, dumb (red), average (yellow), and bright (blue). I could read chapter books at that age but was put into the red group. She used to scream at us if we didn't pronounce words the way she did with a heavy Pakistani accent. To get back at her we used to set her stupid pet budgie free every lunch hour.

I had a raging arsehole named Mrs. Hiltz in grade four. I always had detention because she didn't like that I didn't colour within the lines of my drawings, my drawings weren't realistic, and I didn't use the "right" colours. So I had to stay an hour after class every day and try to colour things to her standards. Ironically she is now in charge of the school district's art department.

I had a lot of bully teachers in junior high, but in their defense the kids were trying to murder each other. The first week of jr. high a kid tried to garrot another kid with a piece of wire in my science class.

This will sound horrible, but I'd like to know more about what the kids she was bullying were really like before I pass judgement.

One last story, but a little off topic. My grade 11 math teacher was someone who would insult the class cause they used calculators, or insult students when they had problems with math. Only twist is he did it in an "old grump - get off my lawn" kind of way. So it was kind of funny. Overall he was a pretty solid teacher, and would gladly offer help after school. And I got an A in his class too. I think he was a like him or hate him kind of teacher. I liked him, but am glad I didn't have him for my final year.

In seventh grade I had a female French teacher I did not like. I sent an "anonymous" typed letter to the principal complaining that my child could not see the blackboard due to the glare from the teacher's bald spot. Of course when presented with the letter, I denied it. My mom put it in my scrapbook!


The boys in my fifth grade class liked to sit behind the teacher on the floor and would not go back to their seats.
One day the teacher had enough and he pushed his chair back
squishing the boys and farted on them!

We also liked to fake seizures when we had a new sub.
