Even if students aren’t always good at math or science, you can bet that they’ll probably be good at giving their teachers the business!
And you gotta love it!
I know I sure do!
Check out these funny tweets about students who mercilessly roasted their teachers.
1. Just for drinking water.
Nothing is off-limits.
High school kids will really make fun of you for anything ? I have a new student who saw my almost-empty water bottle and he goes DAMN MISS YOU WERE THIRSTY and the other kids laughed lollll how do you get clowned for drinking water ?

2. That hurts.
Now you have to burn that sweater.
A student once asked me where I got the sweater I was wearing and before I could answer she said “THE DAD STORE?!?!”.

3. You won!
I’m not sure if that’s a good thing…
I wear ties every day, many of them bad 90s ties. I wore an extra bad one student teaching, my 8th graders took a poll and voted it the ugliest tie I’ve worn and then tried a school wide poll. They got the principal involved and she presented me with a certificate for ugliest tie

4. Gee, thanks.
Didn’t need to hear that.
‘What’s wrong with you today? You look sick’ -7th graders to me when I didn’t wear make up

5. Is it?
I never thought of that…
Had one of the high schoolers at my job say to me “Omg are you wearing a winter coat? That’s so 2015.”
…It was 30 degrees outside. https://t.co/YamNyCN0SC

6. A brave kid.
Gotta give him some credit, I guess.
For a drama project one of my students did an imitation of me! It was bang on and I LMAO the whole time, but at the end, the whole class was silent, not looking at me. I think they thought he was dead? I gave him bonus marks for bravery.

7. Give it back to them.
They’re asking for it!
You gotta clown them back — but proportionately. I do that to my players (I coach HS football). My going thing is: “that’s funny, you know my rule you aren’t allowed to make jokes unless your GPA is higher than gas prices.” They start doing math, and realize they should chill lol

8. Fail him!
And call his parents.
My student said I was so ugly my hairline ran away from my face. (I am bald.)

9. Kinda sweet…
Well, that’s nice…
Last year a jokingly put on sunglasses on during class, saying the light of the projector was too bright. First online lesson they all appeared on my screen wearing sunglasses. I thought it was kinda sweet tbh..

10. Wow! Not nice!
Gotta be careful what you wear…
When I was teaching I wore ankle pants ONE day and every single middle school boy pointed it out like I was a Victorian harlot https://t.co/35kV4WqxK9

11. An ugly color.
Better luck next time.
I used to work at a daycare/preschool and one day I wore my favorite light green cardigan. One of my three year olds (who was possibly the smartest, most articulate 3 year old I ever met) looked at me one day and said “Ms.Lexie…why are you wearing THAT color? It’s ugly.” Pain
