If we stressed about a test, my 8th grade history teacher would say, "Don't worry; in a hundred years, we'll all be dead." #MyTeacherIsWeird— Clara Kensie (@ClaraKensie) September 14, 2016
Boring teachers don't really resonate with students, and mean teachers are universally despised, but weird teachers will be remembered for the rest of that little person's life.
My teacher would record himself doing his lecture and show it during class while he sat at his desk and watched football #MyTeacherIsWeird— +(shreK)atie H+ |-/ (@LoveTheGreen3) September 15, 2016
And whether the teacher's weird behavior is a positive or a negative it's always memorable, becoming part of a teacher tale you'll likely tell for the rest of your life.
My biology teacher in high school was missing part of a finger & told a different story every time we asked what happened. #MyTeacherIsWeird— Shelby M. (@MommaShelbs) September 15, 2016
Now that we have the internet and social media connecting us all we can just hop on Twitter and tell our strange teacher tales with the hashtag #myteacherisweird.
My teacher glued a dead fly to my essay and wrote next to it: "Yawn! Your essay even bored this fly to death." #MyTeacherIsWeird— Lisa Graf von Weber (@LudaLisl) September 15, 2016
Jimmy Fallon started the #MyTeacherIsWeird hashtag game on the Tonight Show, and now people can't stop sharing stories about the strangest teachers they've known.
And the best thing about posting these stories online is they don't even have to be true!
