20 Teachers Reveal What They Want Their Students To Know

One day you're going to come across people who are not being paid to tolerate you, and all of a sudden life is going to become considerably more difficult

When you think you are being genius by getting me to talk about random things at the beginning of class instead of "teaching", I'm really allowing it to happen b/c I don't have enough planned to cover a full class.

I knew you were cheating so I gave you a test with the answers in a different order for the rest of the semester. You clearly weren't very bright to figure it out, and yes I am that spiteful. It was easier than reporting the cheating.

I encourage my worst kids as much or more than my favorites because I don’t want them back in my class next year.

Once sat next to a kid in my geography class when I was 12 who was super creepy and would make comments about my developing body etc. He jacked off next to me once (we didn't even have seperate desks, we shared longer tables for 2, 3 or 4 people). I wanted to die.

Why would one do it in class? Go in the bathroom if you honestly can't wait until you get home. This boggles my mind.

Ok I’ve always wondered this. Wtf do you do when you catch a student doing it? Do you talk to them after class? Tell the principal? Do nothing? Stop them in class?

That we have much better hearing than you assume. We just choose our battles as it pertains to inappropriate comments. And sometimes I pretend not to see that thing you did just because I too found it humorous, and speaking to you about it would only result in me cracking up.

Edit: well this really blew up! I am barely seeing people’s reactions to it. I appreciate all the responses. A lot of great comments. And I can definitely share stories for those interested. Haha

It's so funny when they think they're getting away with something but no, it's just near the end of the day and you're too tired to deal with it

If you’re going to eat in class stop staring at me while you’re doing it! You’re ratting yourself out.

EDIT: Thank you everyone for sharing your stories! I literally laughed my ass off a couple of times.

I’ve already answered this in a comment, the reason the students aren’t allowed to eat is because those are the school rules. I have no say in the matter and I won’t jeopardize my job for it especially because it’s my first year working there and my supervisor pops in once in a while.

Secondly, I do allow water (no drinks allowed either) and I let them finish their meal outside before the second bell goes off. Sometimes they even offer me some!

And if they are truly hungry (they know this), they can just ask me in the beginning of class to eat outside. I also don’t punish them when I catch them, I just politely ask them to put it away and have a laugh (telling them angrily will just piss them off). See, i’m not a complete monster!

I can smell you. Everyone can. Please for the love of god, use deodorant.

EDIT: Thanks for the Gold/Silver! To the people asking why I wouldn't say this to a student, the answer is twofold:

  1. Puberty is a smelly ordeal, and a lot of the kids can't help it

  2. Because god forbid it's not their fault (infection, a cultural thing, or improper washing of clothes), you don't want to alienate that student forever.

I don't care that you came to class stoned. Just stop interrupting class, and for gods sake, don't touch any power tools while you're stoned.

I hate when my students come in stoned because it’s math. They always make stupid errors when they’re high. But I can’t get too mad because 1. I used to be high in first period every day and 2. I smoke as well.

Yes, I do have favorite students. No, I won't tell you who they are because that would discourage you, but yes they're probably who you imagine them to be.

“If I didn’t think you would abuse the situation, I would really enjoy being more human and casual around you. I think you are a fun person to be around.”

My gamertag. I usually say there's a policy against it but there isn't. I just don't wanna play Overwatch or whatever with a bunch of relatively good kids who turn into total monsters when they play video games. If I tell the cool ones, it'll get around.

I can definitely hear the horrible things you are saying. Yes, I see that you are on the other side of the room. I may be "old" to you but I am certainly not deaf.

Also, that teenage boy is definitely going to buy you a Big Mac in exchange for oral sex. 100 out 100 times.

I hate the texts as much as you do, but everyone just shrugs when I suggest changing them up! I’m sorry they made us keep that awful After book on the list, I genuinely offered to buy them all back from students so I could burn the waste of time that they are
