This teacher loved to make an example of you in the most embarrassing ways. Sitting in the front row of her classroom was scarier than sitting in the front row of a comedy club; the "please don't pick on me" teacher.
I went to school in the hood. Every once in while we'd get a teacher that was straight out of one of those inspiring '90s movies where a white teacher would try to save her students from life in the ghetto. They would always show us that movie Lean On Me to get us all pumped up, but it never worked because it was condescending and annoying. They'd always end up at a different school after a few years.
What's up with power-hungry teachers? Why are you yelling so much, tough guy? If you were really tough, you would probably be yelling at someone older than a 10th grader. Chill out, you fake-ass, drill sergeant putz.
Speaking of Mr. Belding, do you remember the episode when his super cool brother Rod taught at Bayside? All the kids loved him at first, but they eventually saw through him and decided he was lame. Sometimes, art imitates life, kids.
But enough about bad teachers. Let's end this on a fun note!
This was my favorite type of teacher. The type that told it to you straight, bent the rules every so often and treated you like an adult. Every once in a while they'd go off on some tirade and you'd be right there with them like, "Preach, teach!"
