    Whacked out teacher thread #3148

    Although I think she deserves whatever punishment she gets for endangering the kid's life like that, secretly I can't really blame her. I couldn't do that job. With the kids today, I'd snap like that about 10 times an hour.

    On the whacked out teacher scale, this ranks top with the teacher who caged some misbehaving kids.

    But yeah, teaching anything but university must be hell.

    if i were to teach, it would have to be in high school or higher so you can atleast have a somewhat intelligent conversation.

    I don't think students in college still expect to get As on everything once you get out of 100 level courses. I've seen other students complain about their grades on papers, and Imore than teachers I've see care I've seen teachers that have laughed in their face.

    "You think you deserve an A? I've been teaching this class for X amount of years, graded hundreds, if not thousands of similar papers, have my doctorate, and you think you deserve an A?"



    But yeah, I doubt this kid almost suffocated. The teacher was definitely over the line, but I bet the kid's a flaming douchebag.

    Presses charges? She should be given a frickin' medal. Maybe my highschool experience would have better back in the day had more of my teachers "snapped" on some of the idiots.

    Almost suffocated?

    Should've breathed through his nose.

    A teacher wouldn't tape a student to a chair, and shut them up with the same tape without good reason.

    I think teaching university classes could be pretty cool. I just had a midterm yesterday and I showed up about 2 hours early to study. I ran into the professor at the study lounge. He pulled up a chair and just chilled with us. Pretty cool to see a guy in his late 30's telling jokes to a bunch of 1st years.

    Now, I don't condone what that teacher did but, at the same time, I bet that kid had it coming. Problem is, there's no authority for teachers anymore to discipline children. Used to be growing up if I got out of line in class, the teacher yelled, if I kept at it I got my butt hauled to the office, forcibly. Nowadays, teachers TOUCH a kid and they're gone, kid claiming assault or some other nonsense, whether it was or not.

    Problem is kids don't respect teachers or other adults for the most part cause most kids know what they can do to adults if they get the better of them.

    If that teacher had been in the business for 21 years, I seriously doubt what this kid was doing was minor. Like someone else said, I bet this kid is a flaming douchebag and had it coming.
