I have been thinking about the worst things teachers have to deal with. Do you have a worst thing from your personal experience? Tell me in the comments!

A person comes by the bank I work at and steals money from their grandma. We can't do anything about it.

A friend, who is a middle school math teacher, received a very vulgar, sexual note from a student. She was mortified. That's the worst I can think of...

Panda: I believe every human wants & needs success.
Teachers can deal with a lot of stuff if at the end of the semester the students have learned & gained.

Likewise students seek success even when they are too immature to know.

When they come they come together its great.
That's more likely when you have choice in schools. It's more typical in college.
It's less likely in public schools where you have disinterested students forced to be in class.
Think vouchers!

I think students who understand them well enough to push their buttons. My high school Spanish teacher and our class clown did NOT get along, because they knew exactly how to irritate each other in the worst ways. Teacher was too high strung...

I love her, but I'm not a huge fan of her teaching.

Probably in MY experience, would be pee. As weird as it sounds, Many people I know, including me, have had to pee in the most obscure places, including having to pee in a raft, as a middle schooler, and miraculously without anyone knowing...

And questions, they have to know everything, and they can't say no.

Of course, these experiences are coming from an ,ehem, 6th grader, but anyways...

I think it's really admirable when a teacher says, "I don't know," actually.

My school has a rule against it.... They have to answer or direct you to someone who can answer. But it does not have to be right...

That's not a constructive rule, in any way. At least, I can't see how it is. Do they explain to you why they've made that a policy?

"To enlighten and maintain imagination throughout childhood to continue it to adult life" something like that
