15 people share why 'that teacher' got fired from school.


There's always at least one educator also known as 'that teacher.'

Maybe they're a full-on creep, maybe there are just a few screws loose in their teaching method, whatever the vibe, everyone knows to not expect professionalism from them. In some cases, they eventually cross so many lines they get canned.

In a popular Ask Reddit thread, people shared the reason 'that teacher' got fired from school, and it just proves the good teachers deserve even more money.

1. From skith843:

Embezzled something like 20000 from the school field trips she was in charge of scheduling for the whole school. All field trips that needed to be paid for she planned and took the money for.

Overcharged the students but only deposited the amount for what the trip cost and kept the rest. Did it for decades and stole about 20000 dollars over time. Not only fired, but charged and found guilty. Not sure how much time she was given

2. From dysphoric_amalgam:

Because he set up a camera in the middle school theater changing room (girl's side). His dumb a*s was on the beginning of the video, turning the camera on and adjusting a modified shoebox he put over it to hide it.

A student found it and took it home, watched it with parents. Goodbye, Mr. Goebel.

3. From DrNefarious11:

My Dad subbed (teacher) for a while after he retired. He got personally escorted out of a school once for doing “black magic” for 5th graders…he did a card trick.

And he was in the process of cutting a sheet of paper in a way that makes it possible to walk through it. He is currently banned for life from Deer Park public schools in WA.

Side note: when I went to visit once we went to a bar. The bartender said, “Holy sh*t, it’s [insert full name] Dude! I named my bong after you, Mr. [name]! I guess he really influenced the youth 🤷🏼‍♂️

He was the gym teacher for over 30 years. He volunteered to stand near the trash cans during lunch every day to ensure the students dumped their food and gave their finished trays to the cafeteria workers in an organized way.

He had done this for decades. Even when my father attended that junior high. One day, a student decided to toss her entire tray in the trash instead of dumping the contents and giving it to the cafeteria work.

He removed the tray from the trash and gave it back to her. She threw a carton of chocolate milk at his face, close range. He responded by punching her in the eye.

5. From throwaway788292:

He wanted to date a teacher, and she turned him down. So, then he suspected that she was sleeping with a student. He then hired a private investigator and had her followed.

She found out about it, went to the cops, requested a restraining order, and he was bought up on stalking charges. It was discovered that she was sleeping with the student.

Edit: He was fired. I don't recall her facing any sort of discipline. It was the 17-year-old, star basketball player. It all started because he was bragging. The rumors of her dating a student started well before the teacher started pursuing her.

The rejected teacher hired a private investigator because he heard the rumor mill. Most people in the school thought the two teachers were dating because the male teacher was always in her classroom, even during class hours.

He would buy her flowers often. She was the cheerleader's coach, and he was always sitting in on her practices after school. The male teacher abruptly stopped going to her class and going around her.

The private investigator and stalking accusations came 2 months after that. Everyone figured he had her followed/investigated after he was rejected.

6. From Anom8675309:

History teacher never really taught history. Sometimes he'd just yell at the kids in class. It got worse when his son died in desert storm. Then he spent half the class time crying. Assistant principal had to take over one too many days.

Eventually he stopped coming to school and we never saw him again.

7. From Jurtaani:

He was actually just a substitute. Left quicker than he arrived. He told our class he practices judo so one student told him to show a move. The move he chose to demonstrate on this student in front of the class was a sleeper hold.

Put that mother**cker right to sleep and got charged with assaulting a minor.

8. From MoleHester:

She made us pay $5 for homeworks that hadn't been done.​​​​​​​

9. From LeccaTheTrapGod:

He had a samurai sword in his trunk, proceeded to unsheathe it during a fire drill because his lineup location was next to his car and show people

The best part was that after he got fired people posted flyers around the school of him photoshopped with a samurai outfit with a caption of “ free my homie samurai so and so.”

10. From Leona_Faye:

He was asked to resign because he was engaged to one of the other teachers. They’re still happily married and he made more money as a carpenter. Great guy.​​​​​​​

11. From Feline_is_kat:

All his classes were failing. He spoke unintelligible, didn't explain anything well and if anyone asked a question, he'd respond with 'ehm, ask someone else who does know'.

As if we ever wanted to ask him anything unless the entire class didn't understand. This was my old chemistry teacher. He was fired halfway through the year, we then didn't have any chemistry classes for a while.

The other chemistry teacher couldn't take over all the vacant hours, but she gave us a 3 week crash course at the end of the year. I learned more in those 3 weeks than I did in the first 6 months with the fired guy.

12. From juicybits85:

Not my school, but the school he went to after mine. He was hired as a soccer coach I believe, and somehow ended up coaching cheerleaders, he ended up having a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old student.

The girl wrote about it in her diary, her mom read it, called the cops and they had the girl invite him over for sex, he knocked on the door and they jumped out and arrested him. This was 20ish years ago, I think he is out now.​​​​​​​

13. From messi-pelado:

She got angry with a student (dude was an a**hole, and would disrespect her daily).

So she said he was a witless brat that only passed each year because his father was a corrupt lawyer that paid the school so he didn't fail every subject (she was right and everyone knew it). She got fired a week later.​​​​​​​

14. From texasrigger:

He kicked a volleyball out of anger and it bounced off of a girl's face doing some damage. He was already on thin ice though after doing something that really should have got him fired immediately.

He shot a student's dog in retaliation after the students dog killed his dog (the student and the teacher lived in the same neighborhood and both dogs were loose at the time the teacher's dog was originally killed).

The big problem was that the dog that was shot was on a leash and being walked by the kid at the time. This was in the early 90's in South TX.​​​​​​​

15. From Chemical_Reality4606:

My friend/her son was hit and killed by a delivery driver. At first, spent all day crying or not saying anything then went on leave. Came back and would have crying spells or just talk about her son and wouldn't teach at all.

She pretty much went into a psychosis and never came back one day and was never the same again. I've seen her once outside of school years later and I don't think she will ever recover. I feel bad for her and often wonder if she ever got better.​​​​​​​
