Teachers are supposed to be an example for kids, and they should behave in such a way as to earn the respect of their pupils.
However, some of them proved to be so dumb that it makes you wonder how they got the job in the first place.
On the other hand, some did nothing wrong but still got fired for breaking some non-existent rules.
10 Nicholas Goddard
Reinventing yourself is generally a good thing, but British professor Nicholas Goddard went a bit too far.
After a pretty nasty divorce, the professor who already had a 25 years brilliant career behind him decided to become… a porn star!
The University of Manchester board where he was working was appalled when the X-rated movies were discovered and fired him.
9 Jessica Vanessa
A Florida assistant kindergarten teacher was forced to quit her job after discovering she had a second, way more lucrative job as a professional twerker.
Her Vine channel was already very successful, drawing a lot of money from advertisers when one parent saw her working her booty in front of the camera.
Vannessa says she has no regrets, although she loved working with children. Why would she since for six seconds of twerking, she earns more than what she made in four months working as a teacher?
8 Carly McKinney
Now that’s a case of terminal stupidity. High school teacher Carly McKinney managed to amass a big following on Twitter, where she regularly posted herself in skimpy outfits.
As this wasn’t bad enough, she had the bright idea to post a selfie taken in her car in the school parking lot one day.
Nothing wrong with that, except she was again scantily clad and was smoking weed. The school got rid of her as soon as one parent reported her.
7 Jennifer Mitts
Elementary school teacher Jennifer Mitts paid a high-price for being a kind-hearted person and doing her best to help her pupils.
You wouldn’t believe it, but Mitts got fired to drive two of her students to the ER and pay for their medical expenses. It was the second ‘incident’ that got her fired.
Her mistake? Driving a 17-year old pregnant pupil to the hospital. The girl had pneumonia, and her family credited the teacher with saving the girl’s life and her baby.
What sort of person does that, thought the school board and fired Mitts before she got a chance to help another pupil.
