How far would you be willing to go to get what you want?
Few things in life are more stressful than school and work. For those who strive to get the best grades possible or work their way up within the company, struggle, competition, preparation, and performance are often essential. How stressed did you used to get back in your school days? Didn’t it feel like everybody was slacking off drinking and partying while in college or university? How did they ever pass all their classes?
Well, sometimes they just had to get creative.
Though we hear about disturbing teacher-student scandals in the news fairly frequently (or watch them play out online), how often does flirting and teasing in the classroom really go too far?
Luckily, we have the teachers to tell about the times students came onto them, offering various illicit favors for better grades. They also shared all the other wild and uncomfortable situations students have put them in, and it sounds more like something out of fiction…
I had a student (freshman-15 years old) send me a picture of herself in lingerie with the line, “What can I do to get an A?”
Had to protect myself. Turned it in to administration. It was a very awkward meeting with her parents.
Edit: she sent the picture to me via email, her parents were mortified and were not bad parents. She was a very confused girl who I believe got the help she needed. (bg357)
When I was teaching high school, a little twit named A****n found out it was my 45th birthday and launched into a spiel in front of the class how I should be sure to get a colonoscopy as I was now at that age. (Orcapa)
A 9th grade student in my World History class came to my classroom after school to make up a quiz. She sat down across from my desk and when I looked up I noticed that her shirt was unbuttoned almost completely down to her waist. She had a scarf on, so at a glance she just looked normal. But she definitely unbuttoned her shirt almost all the way down right before entering my classroom, alone. I honestly thought for a second that the school may have paid her to test how much integrity I had as a male teacher. It was uncomfortable [….]
I just didn’t look at her and acted like I didn’t notice. She never did anything like that around me for the rest of the year (BetterThanUsually)
