Teachers are a gift to the world and are amazing in countless ways. It’s one of the most important professions out there and everything they do — making a difference in the lives of their students, helping to not only secure their futures but also have an impact on the future of our planet — is admirable and inspirational.
But while teachers do a LOT, they also put up with a lot. A recent Reddit thread asked high school teachers, “What is the one thing that you want your students to know that you’d never tell them in person?” and there was some wild stuff. Because while teachers have the patience of saints, they are anything but saintly.
