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.

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.

Whoah. A good friend's mother was dying of cancer, and the principal said he would not allow her to be with her mother, she had to be in school. Luckily, her aunt told the principal where to stick it.

And people wonder why women don't want to go into STEM

Катерина Булатова

mine was worse. I had a female physics teacher that hated girls in my specialised physics and math school. The old hag just couldn't stand anything related to general feminine stuff - wanting to look good for example. She always demeaned and put girls down, and praised boys. I stopped caring for physics at all after I was told that I shouldn't even try because I am not "the type to understand it". Later she got sick and her son (also a teacher of physics at the same school, oh the irony) was substituting for the term. He didn't have the same prejudice, so suddenly I became pretty decent in the subject, not amazing, but ok. He wasn't putting anyone down constantly but was actually teaching and encouraging. I was only 13 but quickly learned that teacher's attitude makes a great difference.

I went to UC Davis in the sixties. It was the University of California's veterinary college, and several girls in my dorm wanted to be vets. They were told that they had to be straight A students in pre-vet courses or would not make it because as women they would waste this education by getting married. One became a lab tech, the others all went in other directions. Years later, my husband's cousin Paula had the same difficulty but stuck through it and did become a vet and married another vet. He did the large animal practice. She did the small animals.

This is WHY girls have little interest in STEM. We start out interested, but getting shit on for it regularly makes many stop. (Speaking as a Ph.D. in Biophysical Chemistry with a uterus who had to fight many teachers like this for the grades that I earned.)

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!

This is actually something many people tell each other. It's incredibly disrespectful and dehumanizing. Every kind of pain is valid, no matter how "small". We all deal with our problems differently, that's all.

I've told this one before...a (male) teacher stopped in the middle of class to tell me "Your legs are too fat. You need to go on a diet." This wasn't Phys Ed or some class when commenting on my weight might be even slightly appropriate - this was like Math or Social Studies. F*** him.
