Here’s a video from a Lynn Classical High School 9th grade classroom showing a teacher who was having a really, really, really bad day.
When I first saw this video my first reaction was probably what most of you were thinking – that crazy bitch has no business teaching. She literally was screaming “I hate you all” by the end of the video.
But on the other hand, this is teaching in the Lynn Public Schools. It’s now November, and the honeymoon is over. Kids have figured out what they can get away with and which teachers they can fuck with.
As a former teacher who only had to deal with freshmen when I caught them smoking in the bathroom, I can tell you that they were the biggest assholes in the school. Every year it would take me about two weeks to identify who were gonna the douchebags for the next four years. Luckily they get better as the years go along, and I was blessed to teach 11th graders, which was great because they’re more mature and they have to try because they know college is around the corner. And unlike seniors they still had to pretend to give a shit. But to freshmen, college might as well be a billion years away. They still have middle school mentality.
What I saw in that video is a teacher who I actually feel bad for. She’s obviously in the middle of a mental breakdown and has been pushed to the brink by these shitty kids who live to annoy her. Don’t get me wrong – it’s still her job to act professionally, and if she can’t control herself then she has no business teaching. This is what she signed up for.
But at the same time, if my kid was in that class they’d be catching a whooping. Little fucker is in the 9th grade and already has a man bun.
Any parent who lets their kid grow a man bun automatically loses custody to the DCF Fairy when I become dictator.
Those kids don’t view her as a person, but as a thing they can play with. They don’t care that she has feelings, or maybe she’s depressed, or maybe she’s just having a really bad day. The kid filming it was sadistically smiling. It truly brought joy to his face to bring a teacher to the brink like this. His parents should be embarrassed.
On top of that, he should be charged with wiretapping. Is it against the law to record someone without their permission or not? If you did this to anyone else except for a teacher and then posted it on Snapchat you could be charged with a crime. I fought this battle a lot when I was teaching. Every school has a no cell phone policy, but every single kid in the school violates it. You could see them looking at you, then briefly looking down at their hand like I didn’t know what they were doing. They really, really think all adults are stupid. If Lynn Classical wants to send a message they’ll come down twice as hard on the kids as they do on the teacher, who clearly needs help.
