We all know what kind of difference a good teacher can make in someone's life. A skilled educator has an opportunity to inspire students to pursue their goals and talents, can recognize their strengths and give them the most important knowledge they can offer. While we all should celebrate all of the amazing teachers out there, many schools still lack compassionate, thoughtful and talented teachers. A Twitter user who recently started a thread asking people to share their crappy teacher stories proves that some people are simply unsuited to do this important job. In the eye-opening and shocking thread, people shared stories of harrowing teachers who abused their power over students, humiliated and bullied them.

I had teacher who would always yell at us until we cried and told us that we would all never make it into college because we were terrible people who deserved to fail and were weak. Four years later and I still occasionally wake up screaming, crying, and sweating because I’ve had dreams that I was back in her class.

Good that you went home, my experience was a grade three teacher, she was a nightmare, she was actually cruel to all students, I was very shy which made all worse, she always had her pointer stick and cracked it on our desk, I was shaking in my little shoes, she picked on some students more than others, and I was one of them, words can't explain my absolute fear, when she asked me something, I froze, she failed me that year, it took ever so long before I was able to answer a teacher in class, what a witch she was, an old maid actually !!!

The new female english teacher in second grade elementary school was a real bitch. She told me once in class, 'cause I don't knew something: "that I lived behind the moon and every other classmate would know the answer". Everyone laughed and I'm anxious since then and never spoke more as neccessary in class. And I hated schools afterwards. 😖

If there is a Hell, my first grade teacher, Miss Gulledge, is at the center of it. She would lock a student in the coat closet in the dark, make snide comments about grammar (to a first grader! We still had baby teeth!). Many more horror stories about this sadistic woman. However, the next year, I had Miss Porter, one of the nicest and sweetest teachers I ever had. If there is a Heaven, Miss Porter is at the center of it.

My second grade teacher made it her life mission to humiliate me in class. I knew the alphabet from 3 yrs old, and was a gifted student, although they didn't have a term for that in the early 50's. I was also dyslexic, which I didn't discover until FB came out. I breezed through reading and was already way above my class by end of first year. But math was a foreign idea for me. Whenever I got an answer wrong on any of the tests, likely because I had reversed a few numbers when writing it on my paper from the board where the test was put up, she would call me to the front of the class. Then I was made to lay across her desk and she would pull up my skirt and give me swats with her ruler. Talk about humiliating! I had panic attacks every time I looked at numbers after that. I couldn't tell time from a clock until I was about 17. I failed almost every math class I ever took, and had to repeat in summer school.

Talking of respect, I had a new ROTC teacher come in screaming at us talking about if you respect me I'll respect you while showing us zero respect. I made it my main mission in life to make him hate his and I succeeded. I got many other students on board and he barely lasted the year.. I'm willing to bet I took years off that man's life.

One teacher told my youngest (of 3) sister, "Why can't you be creative like your sisters?" That hurt. I'm glad she got past that, but it took a while. She now does interesting crafts (great colour sense!). Plus, she works in PR, marketing, travel writing, tourism, would make a very good manager-- I can't praise her enough!

So how does one gain the right to feel sad? Is there a quota system (10 worst situations on the entire planet) or is it based on a checklist (must have 9 out of 10 specific events happen over the course of 25 hours) or do you argue for your right before a jury of one insensitive art teacher?

Ah, yes, I watched the whole thing. It was originally an all-girls school, and it eventually became a co-ed high school. It is now defunct. The whole thing was so sad. The head priest, the brotherhood, and their lackeys sexually abused the poor female students.
