The Guide to Teacher Stereotypes
At almost every modern school, there are stereotypical personas that practically every teacher falls into. The hot teacher, the old teacher, the teacher who never gets anything done… you know what I’m talking about. For your reading pleasure, Facts of School has compiled a list of 7 stereotypical teachers.
1. The Teacher Who Hates Teaching
Some teachers are, for lack of a better term, bitches. Maybe they were taunted as a child. Maybe it’s been a while since they’ve gotten laid. Or maybe they’ve graded too many bad papers. But some teachers simply seem to hate teaching! They can have a class full of the kindest, quietest students, but they’ll still find a way to be bitter about something. Perhaps they should consider another profession, like being an architect, or a prostitute.
2. The Teacher Who Lets You Get Away With Anything
Maybe she doesn’t see everyone on their phones, or maybe she just doesn’t care. But some teachers will let their students get away with anything in class, and us students love them for it.
3. The Ancient Teacher
We all know a teacher who’s been employed by the school for 7 million years. They’ve taught everyone’s mom or dad, and they constantly correct mistakes in history books about wars – they were in them! Everyone wonders if some teachers are actually immortal.
There’s one teacher at my school who is so old that I never ask to be excused in her class, simply because she’s so old that I’m afraid she’s going to drop dead when I’m gone…and I want to be there to see it happen so I can be interviewed on the news!
4. The Teacher Who Never Gets Anything Accomplished
Some teachers never actually…”teach” anything. By the time finals roll around, there’s nothing to be tested on! Not that the students are complaining.
5. The Hot Teacher
Have you ever had a teacher that instead of an A, you wanted him to give you the D? Some teachers are so sexy that you can barely pay attention to what they’re saying. Instead of detention, you’d gladly take a spanking for being a naughty little student. (Reminder: Sleeping with a teacher is not only immoral, but also illegal. Even if it does help your grade.)
6. The Sketchy Teacher
Yikes. Is he a drug dealer? Child molester? Terrorist? Secretly Hannah Montana? No one quite knows the story behind him, but every school has a teacher that is just plain creepy. It’s best to beware.
7. The Young Teacher
Just out of college, some teachers are so young you can barely think of them as an actual teacher. They get all your references to current pop culture, they follow you on social media, and they actually have a sense of style (for a teacher, that is.) You kind of want this teacher to be your BFF.
There are all sorts of teachers that students will encounter. Some good, most bad. At the very least, the students have the teachers outnumbered and we’re much trickier.
