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.

Maybe not by the human, but the shark will commit gluttony given the chance. Do you want to send a poor shark to Hell just to get rid of an idiot?

I had a student ( college) whose mo died and she was crying in the hall because her little brother kept asking when mo was coming home. We just sort of sat there and cried together for a while and I told her eventually it will hurt less.

Sounds like your not only a decent teacher but a decent human being as well. Well done! People need support like this from others. We never know what another is dealing with inside themselves even if we see a glimpse from the outside and people- especially authority figures making such hurtful statements can do some irreversible damage.

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.

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.
