At my school, there is a drama/stage craft teacher named Merritt. Merritt is known for screaming at, hitting, throwing things, etc. students. Every year, there is talk of her getting fired, every year it fails. I just found out that once again, her name is up on the fire list. And here is what she's done: Touching a male student's genitals by 'accident'; Strangling students, one of which was with a confiscated lanyard attached to a ID badge students at my school are supposed to wear AT ALL TIMES; she will wear no underwear, then expose herself by sitting with her legs spread wide open IN FRONT OF STUDENTS; she has thrown heavy objects at students hitting at least one in the genitals; she has gotten onto other teacher's computers AT NIGHT without their permission; She puts off important work until the last minute like say the scripts for a play that is to be performed soon which causes the students to be very stressed and makes the play look bad because they weren't given enough time to practice; She acts like she is above school policy and the law. I sincerely hope this is the year the fire her. I think the main reason they haven't is because they have no other drama teacher to fill her place.
Anyone else have/had similar teachers at their school?
My school has lockers and middle schoolers have to use theirs, they're not allowed to carry their bags around. But higheschoolers? They don't even tell us where they are. They hand us a slip with the number and combination and say "have fun searching three floors for a locker that won't open!" People always complain about their bags being heavy and teachers are like "why don't you put stuff in your locker?" because I'm not going to a completely different floor just to try to get my locker to open in the two/three minutes between classes.
That is how my school system is. I couple years ago, a bunch of Middle schoolers got a locker number that didn't exist. At all. Then the school took forever as they scrambled around trying to find lockers for the kids.
I swear Teachers get paid extra to make a students life harder than it already is.
