You should expect a certain level of
stability in your educators. I think we’re all entitled to that. There are bad
teachers out there, but there is a huge difference between bad and seriously
dangerous. Many of you may remember I mentioned my mentally unstable vindictive theater teacher in a previous video, and I may or may not devote an
entire video to her later on. But she was nothing compared to who this video is
actually about. So for this story, I think we’ll call him “E,” although I guess I
could use his real name considering he’s, you know… …dead. *aggravated sigh* He might come back
to haunt me. We’ll stick with “E.” E was my Communications teacher in college. His
class was required for my business minor, so there was no getting out of it. So I arrived first day to this class and immediately, like I set one foot in the
door, and something about this guy just doesn’t sit right with me. Just his
general demeanor and mannerisms and the way he talked, it set off so many red
flags. Weird fact about me, for years now I’ve had deadly accurate intuition when
it comes to bad people. For my entire, I’ve never been wrong. If a serial killer in disguise walks into the room, I’m shamelessly baring my teeth and
hissing like an irate cat. And E was just setting off all of the alarms in my head. He gave us a syllabus the first day, but I might as well have just torn it up right then and there, because he never followed it. And listening to him try to explain an assignment was like listening to Tom Cruise talk about Scientology. And when everyone showed up to class with their assignment completed, he would be furious that no one did it right. Very often contradicting his own
previous instructions. The smallest things would upset this guy. I was once
handed back a test that had a nasty note written in the corner because he didn’t
like the pencil I’d used. And yet half the time he would teach the class dressed as a popper and drop cuss words and lewd topics into the lecture like it
was nothing. A lot of TMI personal stuff, too! Like, seriously dude! Keep your love
life to yourself! And part of the problem with him being a bad communicator despite being a Communications teacher, he refused to stay after class to help
anyone or answer any questions or clarify his nonsense, and then later would throw a fit about nobody asking for his help. his ego needed to be fed so badly that he would fish for compliments by
constantly asking for feedback. “Let me know what I’m doing right or wrong!” “Special emphasis on what I’m doing right!” Because God helped the poor soul who offered him polite constructive criticism. I got so sick of this guy that I went to the head of the department and complained. Turns out, so did most of the class. And when the head of the department approached him about it, E took it out on us the next class saying we should’ve come to him with our
grievances. So my big incident with this guy came on the last day of school. One of E’s policies was if you got a low grade on an assignment, you could correct
it and turn it back in for a better grade. On the last day, he was handing
back some of these assignments. He gave me back a paper I had corrected that was originally a B+. But when he handed it to me, he said the grade had gone down to a C. Did you get that? The corrected assignment went DOWN a grade. Yeah. I was kind of pissed. To the point that I asked this jerkwad to meet me in the hallway so we could discuss it. I explained to him what I would think would be basic human logic for any functioning adult. That a paper that was more correct than
the previous version should have a higher grade. Well E started throwing
out every excuse in the book, and I just kept debunking this idiocy over and over
again with the same argument. Until finally after like 15 minutes of talking and running around the issue, I had him backed into a corner. He started getting
physically angry, making threatening gestures at me. I think the only reason he didn’t touch me was because my friend Mary was sitting at a table in that hallway watching and listening to everything. And then it all just kind of caved. He said, “Rebecca, I think I’m just gonna *expletive* quit teaching!” He basically had an emotional breakdown in front of me; almost started crying. It was very strange and embarrassing. Several times, I told him to calm down and take a breath. Admitting his defeat, he agreed to fix my
grade… but then left class early right after that. His tail between his legs. Same day I went back to the department head and told him what happened! Not like it did anything, because E taught for another two years at that
school before leaving. So now, I bet a lot of you are wondering, “Well, what happened to E?” And, as you might have read by the title of this video… something not very nice. Something very unfortunate actually. About two years after I graduated someone sent me a link on Facebook to a
news article. And it was pretty shocking what I read. E had been teaching Communications at a different University when he murdered someone in one state, fled to another state, and shot himself during a police standoff. Kind of hard for me to add anything more to that. I mean, a man that my gut told me was
dangerous ended up being dangerous. Though I will say it is a rather
chilling notion that I was standing in a hallway poking a would-be murderer with
a stick over a paper. And I do something wonder how differently that situation would have turned out if I didn’t have a witness. Alright, Explainers and Entertainers, sorry for that downer of an ending. But that is the story of the worst teacher that I have ever had. But if you have a funny bad teacher story then let me know in the comment section below. This has been Rebecca Parham. Thank you so much for tuning in. But now I got a tune out. Bye!

  2. I had a teacher who touched no pulled a girl's bra and I had another teacher who got so angry on a student that he literally choked him on the wall. I know this because he was in a classroom next to mine in 3rd and 4th grade. He would always be yelling and a lot of TMI about his relationships but no one said anything because we all thought we were going to get choked too.

  4. Roses are red vilots are blue i dont have a mouth neither do you,but who cares we can still talk because of our inner thoughts ❤ lol sorry

  5. Once I had a math teacher…. she was horrible. She made me hate math, even though I love it. We were learning something about symmetry, and I said that a specific shape was symmetrical. Which it was. She said that it wasn’t. After a few days of talk I NV with my parents and an email, I talk to her again and she says ‘oh well. Agree to disagree.’
    How do you agree to disagree on math?!?!

  6. My bad teacher story was in 1st grade.Her name was Mrs.Bowen and omg my kinder-g teacher put me at a single desk every time i was bad(it sucked) other than that she was a good teacher.

  7. I am in 7th grade and this story is really, how do I put this, weird. We had a sub one day, and she worked at an animal institute. She had brought in LIVE FRICKING SQUIRRELS!!! FOR NO REASON WHATSOEVER!!! One of them had rabies so she had to leave the class to release the squirrel. She didn't take the class with her, so the class basically turned into a war zone. By then, dun dun duuunn!
    The principal walked in! She asked us where the teacher was and the whole class ratted her out. I am an introvert so I stayed quiet for the rest of class. Let's just say, that sub was not allowed back at the school. Ever.

  8. Medusa: I ruined Becka's self confidence!

  9. I had a teacher that hated me because I had the lowest grade in the class. She would call on me all the time and she would ask me what 7 ÷ 56 was and we went in flippin division it was foth grade!!! She gave a report card with the words Why are you embarrassing our class?!?

  12. WOW! es como la historia de mi vida, solo que yo soy el profesor(hablando retoricamente) y aun no lo hago(lo de perder la cabeza, cordura y el sentido de la vida) dios estoy mal…

  13. I once had a teacher who spent an hour telling us about how he stuck his hand down a hole, and got bitten by a snake, 30 minutes making us do really hard-core math that he didn’t even explain to us how to do, and then spent the last 3 hours lecturing us on how “everything is a gift. Your chair is a gift. Life is a gift. My pencil is a gift. I am a gift.” And that was all he said for 3 HOURS. I’m not saying that he was wrong, and some people who read this might agree with him, but as a student who had to miss her favourite classes because of this, (Art, ELA, Science,) I was really annoyed. (And so was the rest of my class. (And the poor, unfortunate people who had to deal with him one year, and then had to deal with him again 3 times the next year.))

  14. I found the news article

  15. I had a teacher who was interesting and one day the kid in my class brought soilders toys to school and the thing he wanted to be a soilder in the future. But my teacher was not happy.

  23. Guys I found the guy search up Eric Engel murder and click the link and shows a picture of the man he looks like a crazy guy it’s says he teaches department of communication

  24. My 4th grade teacher, I’ll call her Mrs P, got mad for the dumbest reasons. A boy had autism in our class and I’ll call him Ri. Ri always raised his hand and when Mrs P called on him and he didn’t actually know the answer, she would constantly tell him “Your think time is before you raise your hand.” But then she would complain later because “The same people always raise their hands” “I am disappointed” “You are 4th graders now” “You are all very lazy waiting for other people to tell you the answer” and she would do this It was ridiculous. Also we started getting planners in 4th grade so when we didn’t get them signed, we had to stay 10 MINUTES INSIDE FOR A 20 MINUTE RECESS! Also we were not allowed to go back to our lockers unless it was important and had something to do with Mrs P. And even if our planner was signed, if it was in our locker we could not go get it and had to write our name on the board. She would get so mad she would scream at us about how we are responsible 4th graders and we should know better. Then one day we were discussing a word and what it meant and she said these exact words, “Yes, Ri?” “It means to yell at someone” “I am strict and serious with you but I don’t yell or scream at you”. I am not kidding. She got mad when we didn’t study for a test when she didn’t give us anything to study. She always finds a way to get somebody in trouble. She yells at us because of the way we write. Also, did I mention she has been teaching for 32 YEARS and lives 1 HOUR AWAY from the school. But she is not as near as bad as E.

  25. My math teacher during freshman year of High School had this thing where everybody would joke about how he was always so chill because teaching was just his side gig and drug dealing was his real job. He never came back after spring break because he was in jail. Turns out he was supplying the football team with steroids and meth…

  26. Eric Paul Engel, a 43-year-old lecturer at the University of New Hampshire who was wanted in the shooting death of a man in North Carolina committed suicide in Florida.

  27. OMG LOOK scroll down and u will acually see the real E

  28. I have this distinct feeling you are a horrible liar… Can you believe it?! I wouldn't believe it!

    I mean if you told me that, I more than likely call you a liar and walk away, and find some place to get ice cream to replenish the innocence you've blackened with your filthy deceits! ( I like strawberry) lol

  29. I used to attend a /very/ religious private college, and the class that finally broke me was a incredibly old man who was actively teaching us methods to work around the law that doesn't let teachers preach to children about religion

  30. I think I found the teacher
    Just type man who killed someone in one state at a university and flead to another state and killed himself in google and it is the first one

  31. If he was my teacher I would literally kick him in the nuts,I don't care if he was my teacher,it would better for him to learn than be abused
