Ever wonder what your teacher is really thinking when they are in school? Well, wonder no more. A new Reddit thread recently asked teachers “What is the one thing that you want your students to know that you’d never tell them in person?,” and those who responded certainly didn’t hold back.
Juicy secrets revealed include:
- “Yes, I put you in a group with the kid you have a crush on intentionally. I'm stuck here with you 180 days a year — I want to see some drama."
- “Your parents are literally the worst part of my job."
- “The weed smell doesn't magically disappear between the parking lot and my classroom."
- “If I know your name by the third day of a new school year, that means you're probably an a**hole."
- “My students are the reason why I am second-guessing having my own kids."
- “When you think you are being genius by getting me to talk about random things at the beginning of class instead of 'teaching.' I'm really allowing it to happen because I don't have enough planned to cover a full class."
- “I can smell you. Everyone can. Please, for the love of god, use deodorant."
- “It's just as weird for me as it is for you when we bump into each other in public."
- “I encourage my worst kids as much or more than my favorites because I don’t want them back in my class next year."
- “Yes I do have favorite students. No, I won't tell you who they are because that would discourage you, but yes, they're probably who you imagine them to be."
