Have you ever heard that being a teacher is one of the most challenging jobs on the planet? It's no surprise when you consider the juggling act that they must perform. Not only do they have to navigate the curriculum, but they also have to handle overbearing parents and tricky children who seem to have a talent for pranks. But, these educators have found a way to turn the tables and get the last laugh. Get ready for some hilarious stories!
1. I am not a bimbo!
This woman here had a dream, a dream that was ignited by a powerful quote from none other than Theodore Roosevelt himself. The quote? "The more you know about the past, the better you are prepared for the future." And boy, did this woman take those words to heart. With a fierce determination burning inside her, she set out to obtain her Masters in Education and History, despite the naysayers and demotivators who doubted her abilities because of her appearance. But guess what? She silenced them all and proved them wrong. And now, she's on her way to becoming the history teacher she always dreamed of being. Talk about a true inspiration!
2. Playing is a form of studying?
Ah, the days of first grade - where drawing, playing, and singing were the norm. Life was simple and fun. But as we grew older and moved up the academic ladder, things got tougher, and school became more demanding. However, one teacher had a different goal in mind. She wanted her students to always look back and remember the joy they had in her class. She knew that in the future, they might have to endure less-than-stellar math teachers, but she wanted to be the highlight of their journey. So, she became a first-grade teacher, where the fun never ends, and memories are made.
3. How to teach like Beyonce?
Get ready to bow down to the queen of pop and music, Beyonce Knowles, famously known as Queen B. But it looks like a teacher wanted to snag a piece of her success. Using the iconic catchphrase "if you liked it, then you should have put a ring on it," the teacher put her own spin on it, swapping the lyrics with "if ya wanted a grade, ya shoulda put ya name on it." It might sound wacky, but hey, it definitely gets the message across. Looks like Queen B's influence knows no bounds, even in the classroom!
4. But the heart wants what it wants
This teacher would never have imagined she'd be back in the halls of her old Southern school, teaching the bright minds of third graders. But if you had asked her as a child what her fondest memories were, she'd have gushed about her Geography teacher, who transported her to a world of wonder and belonging. So she swapped out her lawyer's briefcase for a new dream and became a teacher and left law for good, and oh my, she's never looked back.
5. You sleep in my class, you fall in my class
Are you the type of student who likes to stay up all night playing video games, even when you have school the next day? Well, let me tell you, there may be some unexpected consequences. Just take this kid, for example, who dozed off in class and woke up to a mischievous surprise from his teacher. Instead of scolding him, the teacher took matters into their own hands and tied the student's shoelaces together! Imagine the laughter and shock from the rest of the class. Moral of the story? Maybe it's time to prioritize a good night's sleep over late-night gaming sessions.
6. Feel free to look at my body
Get ready to be amazed by the incredible story of young Sarah - a teacher who took teaching to a whole new level! While most teachers strive to be good role models for their students, Sarah went the extra mile and made it her life's mission to educate her students about the human body. And how did she do it? By becoming a walking, talking anatomy lesson! Sporting a tank top and tights printed with the most intricate details of the human body, Sarah strutted around the school like a proud peacock, leaving everyone in awe of her unique teaching approach. Trust us when we say you won't believe your eyes when you see Sarah's dedication to educating the future generation!
7. Kim, Jack and Josh
As we gaze upon this masterpiece, one can't help but ponder if the esteemed educators featured knew they were going to be immortalized against a stunning blue backdrop or if they simply arrived with a plethora of wardrobe choices and let fate decide. Regardless, the end result is downright comical, leaving us in stitches. It's crystal clear that if this school ever doled out awards for their Most Valued Educators, the trifecta of Jack, Joshua, and Kimberly would undoubtedly clinch the top spots by a mile.
8. The opposite of mermaid
Ah, the age-old tactic of trying to sweet-talk your way to extra points. From rambling on endlessly to cracking jokes, students have tried it all. But let's face it; most teachers aren't easily swayed by such attempts. That is unless you happen to have a certain teacher who just couldn't resist the charm of a certain "man dolphin" drawing. Yes, you heard that right - a man dolphin. This teacher was so tickled by this masterpiece that he decided to award each and every student with a generous four bonus points. Now that's what we call a stroke of luck!
9. Tell me, what grade do you want?
Oh, how times have changed! It's hard to believe that the teachers of today were once students themselves, experiencing a vastly different education system. Sure, standards and curriculums have shifted over time, but the biggest game-changer has to be technology. Computers have taken over the classroom, and even written assignments now include social media jargon that some teachers find foreign. Can you imagine a teacher admitting they're "too old" to understand what their students are writing? It's a whole new world out there!
10. Set the Wasp on fire
Picture this: a wasp enters a classroom, and chaos ensues. Screams fill the air as students and teachers alike scramble for safety. It's almost comical how something so small can incite such fear in humans. But one teacher decided to take a different approach. Rather than cower in fear, they saw an opportunity to teach their students a lesson in bravery. Armed with a torch and flammable spray, the teacher set the wasp ablaze. While this act may raise eyebrows and spark controversy, it's important to note that sometimes the greatest lessons come from the most unexpected sources.
11. Sin b/Tan b= Bill Cos b
Are you tired of boring, forgettable lessons? Fear not! Our math professor has cracked the code to make learning stick. Say goodbye to dry equations and hello to memorable pneumonic devices. You may have learned "SOHCAHTOA" in trigonometry, but our professor takes it up a notch. By reminding students that when the sine of b is divided by the tan of b, it equals the cosine of b, he turns it into a catchy phrase. Say it with me now: "cos b, or [Bill] Cosby." Genius, right? With this kind of teaching, you'll ace your exams and impress your friends with your math skills.
12. Walk-ens not accepted
Get this: even the award-winning, sandy-haired actor with nerves of steel, Christopher Walken, isn't allowed to waltz into the principal's office whenever he pleases. And it's not just him - even if you've shared the silver screen with him in iconic films like Pulp Fiction or Catch Me If You Can, without a scheduled appointment, you're out of luck. Don't believe us? Just take a look at Walken's steely gaze - it's clear that rules are rules here.

The holiday season is upon us, and everyone is buzzing with excitement and anticipation, including our dear teacher.

Donning a jolly Santa Claus hat and armed with the perfect math problem, he sets out to lift his students' spirits and transform their attitudes toward the subject. Who knew math could be so festive?
14. May the force be with you
Hold on to your lightsabers, folks! We've got a Star Wars reference that's out of this world. Our guess is that the artist behind this masterpiece had a secret passion for teaching art but instead settled for the second-best option: physics. It's a shame this epic sketch was created on a whiteboard because, let's face it, it's a masterpiece that deserves to be immortalized on canvas or print. It's not every day that you see an attempt to fuse pop culture with physics, and we can't help but applaud this creative genius for pulling it off. May the force be with you, physics-loving artist!
15. Even the time is passing, why cant I!
It's hard to believe that something as seemingly innocuous as an exam can cause such overwhelming stress. But for many young Americans, it's a reality they face every day. The pressure to perform can be paralyzing, leaving even the most diligent students feeling helpless and hopeless. The worst part? All that hard work, all those hours of studying, can be erased in an instant when the stress takes over. It's no wonder that a simple sign can trigger a panic attack. But it doesn't have to be this way. With the right tools and support, we can help our youth manage their exam stress and achieve their full potential.
16. The best teachers are the honest teachers.
Imagine the feeling of pure joy that washes over you when you finally receive that coveted A+ on a test you've been studying for. That's exactly what happened to Sarah, and her day couldn't have gotten any better - or so she thought. But wait, there's more! Her English Literature teacher went above and beyond with an additional comment that made Sarah appreciate her even more. It turns out Sarah wasn't the only one who aced the test - her teacher nailed it with their thoughtful response as well. Talk about a double win!
17. Lord of the Plagiarism
Oh boy, getting an F on a paper is not what anyone wants to see. It's like a giant red flag screaming, "Hey, you didn't put in the work or do your research!" But get this; there's a student who not only slacked off but straight up copied word for word from the critic of the year, Philip French. And get this; they didn't even bother to paraphrase it or anything; they just copied it from The Guardian's website. Talk about laziness! Although the stamp may say "fail," it's almost like a gentle pat on the back to cushion the blow of their blatant plagiarism.
18. The DIY CCTV Camera
Are you willing to gamble your entire academic career just to pass one test? Cheating may seem like a shortcut to success, but is it truly worth the high stakes of getting caught and facing expulsion? Even the most confident students should consider the overwhelming guilt that can come with cheating. But fear not, one teacher has found a unique solution to ensure his students stay on the right track. He sits atop a ladder, watching over his pupils like a hawk, ensuring they all make the right choices. It's a brilliant move that's sure to keep everyone honest and accountable.
19. Wanna learn to play the piano? Then don't touch one!
Ah, music teachers - they're known for their eccentricities, aren't they? But let me tell you about one particular maestro who's taken things to a whole new level. Instead of slapping up the usual "do not touch" sign on their precious piano, this genius of a teacher has crafted a message that's sure to leave a lasting impression. With tongue firmly planted in cheek, the sign explains that unless you happen to be the one and only Mozart, you'd better ask for permission before tickling those ivories. And let's face it, the chances of any of those students being the reincarnated soul of the great composer are pretty slim. So let's give it up for this musical maverick - they've turned a mundane warning into a clever quip that'll have everyone talking!
20. Shut up or I will tell you who dies next in Game of Thrones!

This epic series has captured the hearts and minds of viewers worldwide, leaving no one immune to its spellbinding storytelling. So, when a teacher recently threatened to reveal spoilers from the show, the students were quick to zip their lips. Talk about a teacher who knows how to get what they want!
21. The Homework Bermuda Triangle
Josh Hance is a clever young lad who refused to succumb to the clichéd excuse of blaming his dog for gobbling up his homework. He opted for a more unique and plausible reason - his work went missing!

Josh's constant misplacement of his homework put him in a tight spot, and he was awarded the dubious honor of the "Bermuda Triangle" by his teacher.

But hold up, did you know that a genius chemistry teacher used the periodic table to recreate the iconic intro of this song? Talk about a clever way to grab students' attention! Who knew that memorizing a random collection of elements could be so dang catchy? Imagine acing a science test just by humming Lady Gaga tunes. It's like hitting two birds with one stone - mastering both music and chemistry.
23. You're messing with the wrong newbie
Ah, the enthusiasm of a fresh education graduate! Maria was no exception - she was raring to put her degree to use and start molding young minds as soon as possible. Of course, she didn't expect her students to be pushovers. These kids were sharp, and they could smell a novice a mile away. That's why they decided to have a bit of fun with her by swapping out her eraser for a sponge soaked in bleach. But little did they know, Maria was no ordinary rookie - she was ready for anything they could throw her way!
24. The fun english teacher

Who says educators are all about grading papers and being serious? Mr. Telfer proved them wrong with his wit and humor!
25. Every night in my dreams, I see you- I feel you!

The Royal High School in California is notorious for its stringent security protocols, and all staff members are required to carry their ID cards on school grounds at all times. Unfortunately, identifying Mr. Dennert can prove to be a challenge, as he bears an uncanny resemblance to an intergalactic princess brandishing a blaster. Talk about a mystery!
27. Blieb at your own risk
Are you a Belieber? While some may find it embarrassing to admit their love for Justin Bieber's music, there's no denying that this young star has made a fortune with his record-breaking hits and sold-out performances. However, it seems that not all students share the same enthusiasm for the "Baby" singer, as one teacher discovered when she used a Bieber pencil as a form of punishment. Despite this, Bieber's success continues to inspire and captivate audiences worldwide.
28. Prank photos
Hey, educators! Are you tired of confiscating your students' phones and just letting them sit there? Useless and boring? Well, why not spice things up a bit and give them a good laugh?

Chaos ensues as students feel like they can run amok without the usual authoritative figure present. But not this teacher. She knew that if she didn't show up, no work would be completed that day. That's why she took matters into her own hands and had the substitute project a slide with her picture on it, looking serious and professional. It was a genius move that set the correct tone and ensured that her students would stay on task, even in her absence. Clever, right?

Can you imagine how thrilled the students must have been to hear that? I bet this teacher just became everyone's new favorite.
31. You shall pass
Step into the realm of Gandalf, the legendary wizard who's famous for roaring "YOU SHALL NOT PASS" to thwart the evil forces trying to invade the Fellowship of the Ring. But, in a surprising turn of events, our beloved Gandalf decided to wield his power for a different cause - helping a student named Frodo navigate the labyrinthine halls of high school! And, let's be honest, Gandalf didn't give two hoots about hall passes. He was convinced that he and Frodo were on a perilous journey from the Shire to Mordor, just like in his favorite book, Lord of the Rings. Who knew Gandalf was a rebel at heart?
32. Wall of shame
In today's world, social media has become an integral part of our lives. We all know how vocal we can get when it comes to shaming someone on these platforms. But what if I told you that a teacher used the power of public shaming in a way that actually worked? Yes, you heard that right! This teacher devised a funny strategy that involved only mentioning silly mistakes on a wall of shame. From forgetting to put their name on a quiz to missing out on a negative sign, students were only made fun of for minor errors. But, the twist is that this wall of shame became a wall of fame for some students who wanted to be up there. Sounds interesting, right?

34. Stromtrooper infiltration
Ah, the infamous Stormtroopers - known for their lack of success in preventing Luke Skywalker from taking down Darth Vader and his base.

But hey, at least he'll forever be remembered in the pages of the yearbook. Talk about a unique high school experience!
35. The tears of students
It's a classic tale of a teacher at their wit's end with a class full of whining, complaining students. But this educator was not one to simply put up with the constant grumbling and eye-rolling.

Only the most genius idea ever - a sticker on his water bottle that read "students' tears." With this hilarious and oh-so-clever tactic, the teacher was able to finally bring peace to his classroom and put an end to the endless griping.

37. Rick rolled to class
Who here loves taking surprise tests? Yeah, we didn't think so. It's the worst feeling when you're caught off guard and not given enough time to prepare. But let's give some credit to the music teacher who orchestrated this sneaky exam. Sure, he felt a bit guilty about it, but hey, it's all part of the job, right? That's why he decided to throw a curveball and add a little something extra at the end of the test - a question about a song his students knew like the back of their hands. Smart move, teacher.

But fret not; for a small fee, your teacher might just spin a story for you and even save your skin!
40. Late assignments
Have you ever stopped to think about the immense effort that teachers put into ensuring that their students meet their deadlines? It's easy to take their hard work for granted, but the reality is that every curriculum has specific due dates and deadlines that even the teachers themselves must adhere to. When students turn in their assignments late, it throws everyone off track and means that teachers have to put in extra hours to make up for a lost time. This particular teacher decided to forego the usual lecture and instead issued a strong, written warning to all those who failed to meet their deadlines. It's clear that this teacher is not messing around when it comes to punctuality!
41. Yo mamma
Have you ever considered that teachers are not just robots with textbooks, but living, breathing humans with a sense of humor? It's easy to forget that, but thankfully there are some educators out there who are willing to remind us. Take this one science teacher, for example. Instead of giving his students a run-of-the-mill test, he decided to spice things up with a hilarious "Yo Mamma" joke. Who knew that there was a scientific method to crafting the perfect "Yo Mamma" joke? We certainly didn't, but we're grateful to this teacher for enlightening us. This test may have caught his students off guard, but it definitely gave them a good laugh.

Determined to seek assistance, he made his way to his teacher's office during his lunch break. As he knocked on the door several times, he was met with silence. After waiting for a while, he decided to take matters into his own hands and pushed the door open. To his surprise, he was greeted by a cardboard cutout! If this was some sort of Halloween prank, it definitely needed a better freaky face to impress him.
43. A colorful lesson
Bored with his students' incessant goofing off during his biology lesson, this teacher decided to turn the tables on them. Instead of his usual attire, he made a bold sartorial choice and arrived at his 9 am class dressed as a clown.

The teacher was now the one commanding respect in the classroom.
44. Revenge is best served cold
Life can be a real juggling act, especially when it comes to balancing work and play. Angela was no stranger to this struggle, but she refused to sacrifice the things that truly mattered to her, even if it meant sacrificing some precious z's. Little did she know her dedication would come back to haunt her in an unexpected way. Caught red-handed trying to catch up on work in last night's party outfit, Angela's reputation was on the line. But don't worry; a little payback was in the works.

While we can't say for sure if he got any bonus points, it's great to see a teacher who appreciates a good laugh.
46. The easiest exam question
Have you ever tried to come up with questions for a quiz? It's a real challenge! Especially when it comes to multiple-choice questions. You not only have to come up with the questions but also the answers. Imagine doing this late at night when you're already feeling completely drained. That's exactly what happened to Mr. Gann. He was so exhausted that he ended up writing a silly final question that simply said, "just answer 'A'... no tricks, just answer A, and you will get this question right." It's hard not to laugh at such a ridiculous question. But, we can't help but wonder, did any student actually fall for this trick and answer something else?
47. Knowledge is power- physical power
Picture this: a teacher passionately explaining the intricacies of the laws of gravity to her students. Little did she know, she was providing the perfect live demonstration right in front of their eyes. But, as the teacher leaned in a little too close, the students couldn't help but feel a tad uncomfortable. The confused look on the teenage girl's face says it all. Let's just say we wouldn't want anyone hovering over us like that, either...
48. Grumpy math teacher
Teaching is a noble profession, but becoming an amazing educator who connects with students on a personal level is an art. This exceptional lady falls into the latter category, as she goes above and beyond to ensure her students excel not just in academics but in life. To make herself more relatable, she took a unique approach by communicating through the language of memes.
