24 Remarks That Have Made Teachers Lose Their Sanity
In a previous blog post, we listed some of the most ridiculous things that have been said to teachers. When we asked our readers to share their stories, too, these are some of the responses we received. You might want to grab a glass of wine and some popcorn for this one!
I was in target working my summer job this year. I overheard two women with little kids discussing their worries that summer break was almost over. One mom said to the other that she wished that school could go all year. I said excuse me but I am teacher and would have to disagree. They scoffed at me and left. I wanted to say why don’t you have their teacher take them home so they can raise them. Parents!
I have one from my first year teaching YEARS ago. I had a parent asked me to take away their child’s recess if the child did not do their chores at home.
Teacher: “why did you throw all that paper on the floor of the classroom? You wouldn’t do that at home would you?
Student: @Well, army house the maid gets it…”
Well, what am supposed to do?! If i take away his Playstation, he won’t like me. —said to me by a parent whose child was failing my class.
