We’re all humans and we all make mistakes. No one was born perfect. We mess up and learn from our mistakes, so that next time we don’t put ourselves in that vulnerable situation again. Sometimes we get extremely embarrassed due to our own lack of attention and responsibility. We might get drifted away by the idea of having everything under control that we overlook the loopholes of the situation. It usually happens because we’re either overconfident about our abilities or we’re careless. Well, the majority of the time this is the reason. However, there may be more explanations, depending on the situations and the mistakes made.
Although making mistakes is a healthy sign, it means you’re learning and growing, but sometimes these mistakes can make you the butt of the joke. Especially, in a position where you are in authority and there are people around you who are not happy with your ways. Whether you’re a team lead, a boss or a teacher, when you get screwed up, you’re not spared. As a teacher, you’re expected to be the most relevant person around. The one with the least mess-ups, but it’s okay if you have a few. We’re only humans after all. Here are 30 stories teachers shared about their awkward classroom ‘teacher fails’ and they are completely hilarious. Scroll down to read.
“4 teachers. 10 degrees. 1 GIANT mess.”
“When the art project is a giant disaste”
“I’m proud of – accidental swear word in the findaword – teacher of the year! “
“It’s May, and we’re all here. What more can you ask for?!”
“1st of many teacher fails: We were going to play hangman but then we realized that was inappropriate… So we came up with a new, original game which we called “Beat the Balls.” THEN we chose the word “grassland” and well this is where we ended up… “
“Bad photocopying on my behalf. The year 6’s found it hilarious “
“Oops, bad spelling.”
Oops, another typo! On countless occasions, typos have ruined everything. What may seem like a simple spelling mistake may sometimes ruin the whole meaning of a text and get us in trouble. It’s just like a slip of the tongue in the written form. Just like you send your wife a wordy romantic text and spell her name wrong. Instead of Maria, you spell Mary and almost get yourself killed by your wife. It is extremely essential that you proofread anything you write before you hit that send button or save button. Else you know, you’ll either be in trouble or be embarrassed like the teacher in the above post.
That’s a heart shaped balloon. At least, that’s what we think it is.
“Welp. I killed the class pets today.”
“Well that didn’t go as smoothly as planned 😬. My bean bag refill finally came in after being back ordered for months and refilling it seemed so simple until this happened.”
Oh look, goodie bags!
“It was my substitute teacher’s first day on the job, and this is what we walk in class to. Dry erase markers on a promethean board isn’t it yall”
Hope no one weren’t paying attention.
Teachers are very creative these days…
Basic teacher problems.
Aww… That’s innocent and cute.
We all have laughed at this on so hard when we were kids.
“My first ever class as a teacher is about to begin, all notes on the laptop”
“Poor balloon placement in class today”
“please check your fonts”
Pandemic, look what you made the teacher do!
Damn the slip of tongue.
“HS teacher remote teaching. Our platform generates unique classroom codes for each course. For my course, I have to screenshot and send “Jizzin’ to God” to all my students.”
Some kids must be very happy tho.
“How’s your day going? If I had a dollar for every time I’ve locked my class Keys in my room, I could quit my job. No worries, I’m innovative and a problem solver. I always carry a tool kit in my car… .”
“Sorry class, my dog ate everyone’s homework”
“When you get into the prep-room and feel a storng smell of lamb and wonder where it comes from and then you find this amazing bloodpool behind the cart where you placed the dissection organs to let them thaw 😷
Well, it’s alright! We learn by doing mistakes. We definitely need to buy new intact boxes to our lab though”
“How is your first day going? “
“Throwback to that awkward moment during student teaching “
“When your anchor charts go wrong.”
Honestly, every student would be overjoyed reading these fails. It’s probably their favorite thing on the internet today. We personally loved the one where the teacher ate a donut one of her students gave. We think it was kind of cute. The teacher can now buy her student 2 donuts instead of one as compensation. Which one of these fails was your favorite? Let us know in the comments below. If you’re a student or a teacher then you’d surely have a lot of funny stories to share with us.
