One Woman Who Should Not Have Been a Teacher
Some teachers are memorable because they were so good. Others are memorable for the opposite reason. They just weren’t cut out to be teachers and they obviously didn’t like children very much. My third grade teacher, Mrs. Series, falls into this category. I will never forget her. Here’s why.
First she never taught me one positive thing I can remember. I suppose she did try to teach reading, math, science, and whatever else was in the curriculum. I just don’t remember any of those lessons.
What I do remember is that when she was trying to teach, she would walk around the room opening all the cupboard doors. If anyone misbehaved during this time, she would keep the entire class in at recess. During that recess she would walk around the room yelling at us and slamming all the cupboard doors she had opened earlier. I don’t know what we were supposed to learn from this. It definitely wasn’t fair, since the entire class was always punished for the offenses of a few.
Did you ever have a teacher you remember for negative reasons?
