20 Of The Weirdest Things Teachers Hear That Left Them Speechless

And such is the life of a teacher.

Working as a teacher can be very stressful, but at the same time, it can be equally rewarding. At the same time, these people have heard things that you can’t really hear elsewhere. While they did ask for them to share some “fun facts,” let’s just say that enough of these would make us frown when shared.

“I teach middle school, This one still takes the cake.

That his mom and dad have the same parents. I asked him to clarify because I didn’t understand what he was saying and he said, “I only have one set of grandparents, they had the same parents” I quickly moved to the next student so no one else would realize that this kid just told the class that his parents were siblings…

I talked to him about it the next day in private and he said that he got it mixed up, his parents don’t have the exact same parents, they shared a dad… I felt so much better when the mom called me to let me know her elderly step-father married her husband’s elderly mother. still weird, but much better.”

“It wasn’t weird but actually cute and funny. I was teaching fifth grade and this kid, white as paper, goes my name is _____, but you can call me Lebron. He had an obsession with Lebron James and I did in fact call him Lebron whenever I wanted to get his attention. Great kid.”nrjjsdpn


“That he has been to juvie multiple times and is currently on probation. Then he pulled up his pants enough that everyone could see his ankle monitor. That was… something.”whateverreddit88


“I had a student tell me that sometimes his dad got drunk and asked his mom for things; as I was starting to tell him he didn’t need to elaborate any further, he continued with “like soup and he yells it like ‘Soooooooooup’” it took every bit of restraint to not laugh. It’s been years and years since that happened but I still laugh when I think about it.”chrissiwit


“A student once told my wife that her daddy had a special device that he had to blow into to start his truck.”marshallsays

“I work with preschoolers (3-5 age group). One day we had the kids go around and tell us one thing that made them special. Most were pretty normal (I’m really good at drawing, I have two big sisters, etc). And then I get to this one little girl—super cute and sweet. Looks me dead in the eyes and goes “I have been around forever. I have seen the whole world and I know everything.” Dead serious. Super creepy. When I pressed her, she couldn’t really find the words to explain, but kept talking about how she “came from the sand”, and was frustrated that she couldn’t “say it better”. I didn’t use to believe in past lives, but now I’m not so sure.”wisebird24

One boy stands up and simply says: pubes.”


“I’m not a teacher, but this may qualify. As a freshman in college, this kid named Brenton told our class his name was “Brent5on, but the 5 is silent”. He was a weird cat. I mean do you man, but it was the most awkward silence from the lecture and professor I have ever witnessed.”Jordansalterego
