I want to know why it always seems to be the English teachers who turn out to be nuts.
Elizabeth McDonald killed her mother with a hammer.
Mary Kay LeTourneau is possibly the most famous freaky English teacher.
Dylena Pierce was arrested for making bomb threats.
Lots of male English teachers have been arrested for molestation or child pr0n. A quick Google search could give you a shock.
Then there is the infamous Pam Smart, a Media Specialist, which is, most of the time, an English teacher who works in the Media Center.
What is it about teaching grammar, composition, and literature that makes one snap? When you think back to your school days, was it the English teacher around whom there was always the breath of scandal? I can say it was in my case. I hope I can successfully navigate the treacherous waters of teaching English and disembark at the end of a long, satisfying, successful career… and not be psycho in the end. I think it will be okay as long as I stay put, for too many episodes like this one could be dangerous for my future mental health.
