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.

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!

I agree. My disabled son, an 8 year old, loves to wear a green shirt (his favorite color) with a green screen printed dinosaur (his favorite creature). But the school this year banned ALL prints, ALL colors except black, red, blue, and white. Solid only. Problem 1) they say that this is a drug reference, and specifically what he wore was to inform other that he was selling drugs (he doesn't even know what they are yet! Although we had to explain it to him as he cried) and Problem 2) The colors they allow, all happen to be gang colors.....which the administration has ignored repeatedly. (note: NOT related to the post, as that teacher needs some serious adjusting!)

I can relate so much! I remember being in the first grade and I was playing with a friend at recess. I was trying to explain the fancy greeting kiss I seen on TV that rich people did when ever they said hello, I remember the recess monitor marching over and yanking her away from me screaming that what I wanted to do was inappropriate and gay and she waz going to speak to my mom about my homosexual tendencies. I was so confused. Then came the kids teasing me, and story blew up between them and it was relentless until middle school when i finally moved away.

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.

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.
