Let’s do a quick experiment, shall we, Pandas? Think about the best teachers you’ve ever had. See how easily their faces pop up in your imagination? You’re probably even smiling. Okay, now think of the very worst teachers you’ve ever encountered. It feels awful, doesn’t it? The sad truth is that nearly everyone has to deal with at least one toxic educator who was out to make their life miserable. Teachers and professors hold a huge amount of influence in their students’ lives. And that power can be used for good, as well as for ill.

Bored Panda compiled this list of pics of people sharing examples of the most toxic teachers they have ever met. The type of behavior featured in this article is appalling. And it really makes you value quality educators even more.

Keep in mind that if you’ve had awful experiences at school, these pics might bring back some bad memories. Otherwise, feel free to tell us about the best and worst teachers you had at school. You’ll find our previous post about bad teachers over here, too. We know from experience just how much teachers can inspire us… or cause us to doubt ourselves.

Bored Panda was interested to learn about building a sense of trust and openness between parents and children, as well as what to do if there are issues with specific teachers at school. We reached out to parenting blogger Samantha Scroggin, from Walking Outside in Slippers, who shared her thoughts on this with us.

"I always try to maintain an open dialogue with my kids, but it doesn’t always work as well as I’d hoped. I think we can’t expect our kids to open up to us on our timeline and our terms. They have to share when and if they want to, and us parents showing a genuine interest in what’s going on in our kids’ lives sets the groundwork for when they’re ready to open up," the blogger said.

Patience and understanding are key for building trust, bit by bit. "Sometimes this can mean listening to them drone on about Pokemon and their friend drama at school," Samantha told Bored Panda.

"I feel like it’s just as important for parents to have an open dialogue with our kids’ teachers at school to see how they’re doing. We can’t always rely on our kids for the full picture, but it’s important to take our kids’ perspective on school situations into perspective," she suggested.

Meanwhile, parenting blogger Samantha said that there's no one-size-fits-all approach when dealing with teacher-related issues. However, she revealed to Bored Panda what approach she took not too long ago.

"I actually recently had an issue with my daughter’s first-grade teacher. She is an older teacher who is not very responsive via the school’s email system. Because communicating with her was so difficult, I told the principal at the end of the school year about my struggles with the teacher. I then requested a teacher for next year who I know to be very responsive," the founder of Walking Outside in Slippers said.

"But I don’t think there is any right way to deal with school or teacher issues. I would defer to the parents to decide what is best for their child and situation," she added.

A third strike in a row in bowling is a good thing, it's called a turkey. It's only possible to do so in a single frame in the 10th (final) frame.Three strikes as an expression is a shortened form of "three strikes and you're out" and is a baseball reference, not a bowling reference.

I would like to restore some faith and share with everyone the complete opposite. When I was in 8th grade I started cheerleading for my school. This meant I couldn't run cross country for school anymore. My old xc coach was also my algebra teacher. She would occasionally tease me about having "gone to the dark side." Anyways she gave me the math award that year and when announcing who she gave it to she raved about how I defied stereotypes. Not only had I proved that blonde cheerleaders could be smart, but that kids that were good at art could be good at math too.

Jesus.... I remember having similar issues because I was a tomboy though. They were always telling me that I couldn't possibly be smart because I was always hanging around the burnout boys and was 'one of them'. Meanwhile, I actually wasn't a burnout and I was called mom by every single one of my friends because I was always the one there to help when s**t went awry or got potentially dangerous, all while taking computer coding and being top in school for rope climbing, bench pressing, and biology. Also was great in pretty much all my classes except for health and math. They called me a f*****g meathead though because of who I hung out with and my gym feats. Teachers are so biased and it's disgusting these are the people supposed to teach our children not just basic subjects but give them LIFE experience. These people are being trusted with our kids to treat them right and to teach them how to treat others. If you can't do that you have no place as a teacher.

We need get you a speaking engagement and put you to work! You are spot-on with the stereotypes still being perpetrated for both you and the crowd you hung with. Education continues to employ an outdated model of conformity that frankly never worked while packaging it as modeling the real world for students.and their parents. Mass conformity and blind acceptance is not the expected norm anymore and you see the backlash everywhere. Children, teenagers and young adults are speaking out - and it's not going over well in education or employment.

Unfortunately back in the 90s that's how MOST cheerleaders were. I only knew of 1 cheerleader back in middle school that made really good grades, the others were too interested in boys and parties to make decent grades(this was back in the early 90s). The other cheerleaders tried their best to get the smart cheerleader off of the team cause she was ruining their image from being smart and popular and pretty 🙄 Thankfully now days it's common to see a cheerleader with good grades and friends with everyone (I have a daughter who's going into HS this year who has told me that most cheerleaders aren't stuck up dumb girls like they were when I was in school back in the dinosaur days lol)

It sometimes feels like certain authority figures are out to get you. It’s not paranoia, though. Some people are so dissatisfied with their lives, so miserable and full of angst that they lash out at those around them.

Unfortunately, there isn’t an exam to thoroughly check if the person hoping to be a teacher is a completely decent human being. There are some bad apples among the droves of hard-working, empathetic educators.

When someone with a dislike for kids and education becomes a teacher, you can’t expect anything good. Some individuals have very low emotional intelligence, and they see their role in the classroom as purely technical: you put in the minimum required work, you get paid.

However, teaching is about far more than just classes, homework, and grading papers. For some, teaching is a calling. And they spare no expense in making their students’ lives better. They help guide them. They support them when they’re down. They thoroughly understand the massive responsibility they have weighing on their shoulders. And they do it anyway, even when they’re exhausted, under-appreciated, and given substandard pay. It’s these educators who we salute.

The way that we approach education in modern times is vastly different from how things were done for, well, pretty all of history. Generally speaking, students are a lot less independent these days. They’re shyer and less proactive, as well.

Childhood independence expert Lenore Skenazy, from Let Grown and the Free-Range Kids movement, went into this with Bored Panda during an earlier interview.

“In the United States, for instance, school only became compulsory a little over 100 years ago. Previously—for hundreds of thousands of years of human history—kids learned simply by watching, copying, helping, and playing,” she explained how learning used to take place.

“In other words, they’d hang around the adults, see how they made things like baskets and arrowheads, they’d ask questions, noodle around, and try to copy what their elders were doing. They’d also help out as soon as they could—fetching things, tracking animals, whatever—and in between they’d be playing with a group of mixed-age kids. All these activities were fueled by curiosity,” she told us.

Unfortunately, these days, children are less curious and have trouble with motivation. That’s not to say that things are all bad. However, there’s a tendency for students to be passive (because that’s how schools work; they demand compliance) and to lack a focused inner drive.

“One reason kids might seem less curious today is because most of their education, inside and outside of school, doesn’t require self-motivation, it requires compliance. The drive is extrinsic, not intrinsic. Kids fill out worksheets because they have to, not because these seem interesting, or have any immediate connection to the ‘real’ world,” Lenore said.

According to the expert, giving our kids some unstructured ‘outdoor’ time can help foster their self-motivation and self-reliance.

“Put some junk out there—old suitcases, blankets, buckets—whatever you’ve got. Of course, at first, the kids might be bored. Scratch that: They will be bored. They’ll want to come back in and grab the iPad. Resist the temptation to let them in or entertain them,” she said.

“Give them a stretch of time—and especially if you can send some other kids out there with them—and out of ‘There’s nothing to do’ something will catch their interest. And a curious kid is born,” Lenore said.

Have them run an errand, visit a neighbor, get something from the woods or the store—something that puts them in a new environment where they have to figure out some stuff on their own.”

Same exact thing happened to me with my drawing final. It was probably one of my favorite pieces I'd done and my teacher just lost it! And she didn't even apologize, she accused me of putting it in the wrong turn in tray or something... needless to say I did not take her class after that

Shocking. I have to write formal emails to teachers and in return, I get an email with misspelt words and barely any formality

My Little Cousin Tried To Tell His Teacher Why Loki Wasn’t A Villain

Cousin: "I think he is not a villain because he was threatened every time he had to do something bad. If you were in that situation, would you take your life for that?"
 
Teacher: "This is off topic. Just write about Loki and how he's a villain. Use an exact example of..."

Don't ask for opinions if you want to hear an exact answer - no wonder the education system crumbles with such lousy trained teachers

After all the stories I've heard off people just claiming a relative died to get out of work this doesn't really surprise me.

This looks more like a technology error than a teacher error. Could be both.

And such c**p is illegal here in Germany because using a toilet is an essential natural need and using one can't be permitted

Did the teacher staple it? I would give her a lot of s**t for a 90 degree staple instead of a 45 degree angle. One of the first things you learn in business college where I live

You never know what's going on with a student. When I taught, a kid was kind of blowing off an assignment. I called parents since it was most of a semester grade, and gave him an incomplete so he had more time to finish. We all worked together to keep him on track. Come to find out later mom had liver cancer, and ended up dying about a year later. I really liked the kid and we were working together on this. Parents were grateful. I only found out AFTER about illness. Showed me that there are often circumstances we don't know about.

This definitely isn’t the worse one, and may even be justified - I got the only 10 in the whole school for music one year - even though this class was known to be the easiest 10 ever - because the teacher wanted to acknowledge that I put so much extra effort in - I was the only one insane enough to spend literally every lunchtime doing extracurricular music. Including a string quartet with 3 teachers (yes, it made me super popular, not that I ever was in the first place…). And to be fair, he was probably sick of everyone treating his class like a joke (although it kind of was…) and using the hour to do homework for other classes. He went back to giving practically everyone 10s the year after, but it was nice to be acknowledged like that just once.
