Teachers are honorable professions. Teachers dedicate their times, energy, and money to the education system to make all their students better prepared for the future.
Many have developed their own creative teaching methods, while others choose to stay true to textbook styles.
Regardless of their teaching preferences, students and parents can certainly appreciate teachers’ efforts and commitments to our educational systems.
However, not every teacher is created equal. Behind the professionalism, they still are humans with humanly strengths and flaws.
Sometimes their personal preferences do not really go hand-in-hand with what is expected of them; they probably have weird hobbies, strange side jobs, or extreme measures to punish students for small honest mistakes.
All of which can get them in troubles with the school administration.
The people in the following list in fact had to lose their jobs as teachers because their mistakes were found to be unforgivable or at least far from what is considered exemplary.
10 P*rn Star
In early 2016, the University of Manchester in England found out that one of its professors, Nicholas Goddard, had an unacceptable extracurricular activity, for which the university had to let him go.
The Oxford educated professor had to endure a stressful divorce ten years earlier, but what he decided to do next was beyond typical for just about any professor; he took a second job as a p*rn star.
Goddard had been teaching chemical engineering for almost 25 years before he resigned.
What happened in Cabo San Lucas apparently doesn’t always stay in Cabo San Lucas.
A former primary school teacher in Cumbre del Noroeste Institute located in Ciudad Obregon, the second largest city in the northern Mexican state of Sonora, who identified herself simply as “Carla” was found competing in a bikini-clad dancing contest while she was on vacation in Cabo San Lucas.
In one of the video footage of the contest, Carla was seen twerking proficiently for which she won a $260 prize. When the video surfaced, she was forced to resign afterward.
8 Sick Student
In 2014, the Red Bank High School in Tennessee reportedly forced a teacher, Jennifer Mitts, to resign because she took a student to the emergency room and paid the bill as well.
Taking care of sick student is great, but apparently the school administration thought that what Mitts had done was just too much kindness a teacher should give.
Mitts took a 20 years old ill student to the emergency room, and because the student had no health insurance, she covered the medical bills too.
For some reasons, the school did not approve such generous heartwarming action.
7 Facebook Rant
In 2015, the 27 years old Kaitlyn Walls was fired from a job she had not started yet.
On her first day as a teacher at a Texas child care center, something she posted on Facebook led to her being fired from the job.
In the posts, she said something to the effects of “hating being around a lot of kids” and that she hated working at day cares.
Her soon-to-be-employer at the Colony Preschool and Child Care Center read that exact posts and rang her few moment later telling her not to bother coming at all.
