By the end of their career, teachers are likely to have thought over one hundred students. While every child is special, only a select few stand out in teachers' minds. Educators shared stories of the students they taught and remember years later, and Class Clowns will be disappointed to learn that it is good deeds, rather than pranks, that leave a lasting legacy
I teach at a prison.
The first inmate I had graduate under my teaching cried when he looked at his diploma. He was the first in his entire family to graduate. It was quite the accomplishment and I was very moved. -JacobasNile
Teaching ESL in Taiwan I joked with a young student and told him I was hungry. Not knowing I speak Chinese he responded with “chi da-bien!” Which translates to eat sh*t. -Soklam
