Twitter Thread: Student Finds Life Changing Teacher On Twitter

Positive teachers that genuinely care about the well being of their students, as well as cultivating in them a legitimate passion for learning, are some of the most cherished human beings on the planet. As can be expected, a fair number of kids resist the idea of school, hitting the books, and keeping up with all that homework. Put the right teacher in front of them that can get them excited about the whole academic process, and you might actually end up with more stories like this wholesome gem from Raifa Rafiq.

People Reveal Reasons Their Teachers Got Fired

Students usually remember teachers for one of two reasons: they were either excellent or terrible. The great teachers do more than teach their subject; they believe in their students, give them life skills, and inspire them to be the best versions of themselves. The inadequate teachers do just the opposite and can cause irreparable damage to the confidence and growth of a student who may be struggling. And then you have the teachers who are SO bad that they got fired. Whether it's for sleeping with a student or embezzling school money, there's always one who thinks they'll get away with it. An AskReddit thread has got people sharing the reasons their teachers were fired, and the responses are so shockingly sad, it's a wonder how they even qualified to become teachers in the first place.

Panicked Student Accidentally Submits Erotica Instead of Final Paper

Not only did he submit erotica, he submitted 10 pages of original, professional grade, high octane smut. The good stuff. We don't envy someone in a jam quite like this, but hopefully this isn't the end for our wordsmith. People have a history of sending the wrong thing to their professors, like this student who sent a bizarre cat photoinstead of an essay.

25 Teachers Share The Worst Cases Of "My Child Can Do No Wrong" That They've Seen

Someone on AskReddit asked for teachers to share the worst examples of "my child can do no wrong" that they've encountered in the classroom. The entitlement flowing through these parents is obnoxiously strong. These teachers must've had a truly saint-like level of patience to deal with these kinds of parents.

Inspiration of The Day: Special Ed Teacher Starts Every Day by Complimenting Each Student

Florida special ed teacher Chris Ulmer starts every class day in a very unique way.

Before any work starts, Ulmer calls each child up to the front of the classroom and compliments them.

"I love having you in my class. I think you're very funny. You're a great soccer player. Everyone in here loves you," he says at the start of a video posted on Facebook, which has gotten over 20 million views.

Ulmer runs a Facebook page for his class (with parent's permission) and has been trying to get a book published about his students.

From ABC:

Ulmer's Facebook page, Special Books by Special Kids, was created because he has been trying, unsuccessfully, to get a book published about the kids. "I have 50 rejection letters on my fridge to keep me motivated," he said. The book focuses on the story of each of the kids in his classroom and is collaboratively told by the child, his or her parents, and from Ulmer's perspective as their teacher.

He's had the same kids in his class for three years and said that they've "evolved as a family. We have an understanding that comes with time that you don't naturally have."

Great job, Chris. Keep it up!
