Teachers On Reddit Share Things They Will Never Tell Their Students
Teachers are some of the most important people in anyone’s life. They are around at our most crucial junctures and witness our growing pains. All the while, guiding us with an invisible hand.
But as we grow into adulthood, we slowly come to realize just how much like everyone else our teachers are. They simply built new personas in order to tutor us better.
So, today, we’re going to dive into some comments from a Reddit post and see — just what are teachers thinking underneath that scholarly demeanor?
A Candid Moment
“Your parents are literally the worst part of my job.” — u/catniss32
Teachers Also Like Drama
“Yes, I put you in a group with the kid you have a crush on intentionally. I'm stuck here with you 180 days a year, I want to see some drama.” — u/grumpybatman
They Know When The Curriculum Is Rubbish
“I think what you learn in the other classes is mostly useless rubbish, the things you're supposed to do to learn it is boring and ineffective, and the way our schools are organised is archaic and not fit for humans, much less kids.” — u/smorgasfjord
They’d Like Nothing More Than To Give Bullies What They’re Due
“I’m not saying I liked fights in my classroom. I’m just saying I might have taken a little longer to react when the jerk student / bully was finally getting what was long overdue.” — u/entredeuxeaux
Sometimes, Even The Teachers Hate The Teacher’s Pet
“I am no longer a teacher, but I remember several days that I felt lazy and wanted to give the class the day off. I never did because I knew the teacher's pet would rat me out. Sometimes even the teachers don't like the teacher's pet.” — u/Birbman3
*Gasp*! The Horror!
“Yelling “fuck!” in the hallways doesn’t make you a badass. Teachers are yelling fuck in their heads all day long.” — u/lynnmarie31583
Kids! You Need To Hear This
“The weed smell doesn't magically disappear between the parking lot and my classroom.” — u/FunkyChromeMedina
They Hear EVERYTHING
“That we have much better hearing than you assume. We just choose our battles as it pertains to inappropriate comments.” — u/moonwalkersb
They Have Seen It All And Done It All
“You can't bullshit a bullshitter. I can tell 95% of what you're saying is a lie, so stop.” — u/jfgray0990
The Real Pearls Of Wisdom
“Trying hard is necessary but not sufficient for most accomplishments. Intelligence is necessary but not sufficient for most accomplishments.” — u/mechantmechant
