These Teachers Got Caught Red-Handed At School

When we think of getting into trouble at school, most of us think it’s the students who have done something wrong, right? It turns out that might not always be the case. That is if some teachers are anything to go by. Although they should be the ones setting the rules, it seems that some teachers can’t help but break the rules – and land themselves in a whole host of trouble as a result. Maybe we can’t trust anyone nowadays?

Not-so camo


One teacher became the talk of the class, all thanks to her pants. While she might have thought the camouflage helped hide her behind from her students, it did nothing but give them something to talk about instead. One of her students quickly noticed the standout aspect of the class and grabbed a snap of their teacher before they were caught red-handed.

COMING UP: A teacher who completely abused her power!

Just gets worse

Teachers Who Got Into Trouble At School: Brianne Altice
Associated Press

Brianne Altice is a teacher who found herself in a whole heap of trouble back in 2013. It turned out that Brianne had been dating not one, not two, but three of her students. Things took an even worse turn when Brianne picked up one of her relationships while out on bail. Brianne might have walked free if it weren’t for the final straw.

COMING UP: This teacher’s outfit doesn’t leave much to the imagination

Stretch it out


Many of us have heard that we should try to fit exercise in wherever we can. It appears this teacher has taken that a little too literally. All she needed were some yoga pants and a stretch of desks. Now, she was free to practice yoga whenever she liked. Hopefully, her unplanned gym lessons don’t land her in trouble with the school.

Losing the title

Teachers Who Got Into Trouble At School: Losing the title

Would you believe this teacher won Teacher of the Year just before she was in court? Yes, it turned out that plenty was happening behind closed doors that soon saw her stripped of her title – and teaching status at the school. It was all thanks to her relationship with a teacher’s assistant, who was just 17 years old at the time.

A helping hand

Facebook/Bellas maestras

The best thing about teachers is they’re always there to help us out. However, one teacher couldn’t understand why her students needed so much extra help. It wasn’t until one of her students snapped a picture of her trying to assist someone else in the class that things started to fall into place. Maybe they need more room between the desks?

Repeating history

Teachers Who Got Into Trouble At School: Pamela Rogers
Associated Press

It’s not just high school teachers who find themselves in trouble. It turns out that elementary school teacher Pamela Rogers was up to no good. Pamela was dating a teenage student when she was arrested and sentenced to serve nine months of an eight-year sentence. Although she was released, Pamela did it again and had to serve the rest of her sentence.

Dressed to impress

Facebook/Bellas maestras

We’re unsure if this teacher was ready to teach a class or walk the runway at Fashion Week. Whatever the case, she was prepared for both as she helped a student get to grips with some work. Just because you work in a classroom doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice glamor – just so long as you don’t get in trouble.

Extra training sessions

Teachers Who Got Into Trouble At School: Hope

Hope was just 23 years old when she was arrested for a relationship with a student. She had been working at a high school where Hope trained the athletics team, but her relationship came to light on the last day of school. It’s rumored the relationship could have been going on for over a year and saw Hope in a whole heap of trouble.

Perfecting the face

Facebook/Bellas maestras

One of the many things teachers need to learn is how to pull that face. You know, the one that tells students they need to get back in line before they find themselves in trouble? This teacher was no exception. It seems she’s got the look down to a fine art. Hopefully, her students quickly got the point that she wasn’t playing games.

The law won

Teachers Who Got Into Trouble At School: The law won
Daily Record

Some teachers get into trouble at school, while others get in trouble with the law. One teacher broke all the rules when they started dating one of their high school students. They probably thought that extra-curricular activities never looked so good. However, the law had other opinions as the teacher was quickly caught and put behind bars for her bad romance.

Sing it for the world


Teachers often find creative ways to get control of their class. This teacher? She decided the best way to get her students to listen was to grab the mic and sing. She might have had dreams of becoming the next Adele, or she could have lost a bet. Whatever the case, her students were about to learn in an entirely new way.

Risking it all

Teachers Who Got Into Trouble At School: Sarah Jones

Where to start with Sarah Jones? The former teacher decided to turn her hand to teaching before she found herself in trouble at school. Although she was married, Sarah started dating a student. Not only did this break the rules, but it also cost Sarah her job and marriage. Newly single, Sarah saw things through and got engaged to her new love in 2013.

Plenty of appreciation


One of the best things about being a teacher is when students show their appreciation for all their hard work and dedication throughout the year. That seems to be what one teacher is enjoying as she’s overwhelmed by bouquets of flowers. She must have one very grateful class. Thankfully, she reciprocated their feelings by showing off her gifts in this photo.

Lots of drama

Teachers Who Got Into Trouble At School: Lisa Glide
Associated Press

Like many other teachers who got into trouble at school, Lisa Glide was caught and charged for being in a relationship with a student. She once worked as a drama teacher before Lisa’s secret relationship came to light. It appeared that she had been seeing a 17-year-old who was quick to jump to the teacher’s defense. Sadly for him, his pleas stood for nothing.

Stealing the attention

Facebook/Ramsey Noah

Many of us take photos of the board to make sure we have everything for our notes. Little did this student know that their teacher would quickly steal the show. It seems they have a teacher who wants to dress to impress, even when they’re spending all day in the classroom. That wasn’t going to stop this teacher from wearing what she liked.

A trip to regret

Teachers Who Got Into Trouble At School: Carrie McCandless

Students often let go when they go away on school trips. Sadly, Carrie McCandless was another who found herself letting her hair down – and getting into heaps of trouble at school. The cheerleading coach supposedly supplied the cheerleading team with adult beverages before getting a little too close to a teenage student. Carrie was ultimately put behind bars as a result.

Starting a debate


What is appropriate to wear in the classroom? Several students are used to sticking to the rules, but this outfit got one teacher into trouble at school. She turned plenty of heads when she arrived to teach in a pink one-piece as several parents complained that it was inappropriate. It wasn’t long before the dress caused a social media storm.

Losing her title

Teachers Who Got Into Trouble At School: Elizabeth Scroggs

It’s one thing to be named teacher of the year; it’s another to be crowned as the best teacher in the area. That was the case for 32-year-old Elizabeth Scroggs in 2010. That was before the school learned she had been dating an 18-year-old student. It wasn’t long before Elizabeth became one of the most talked-about teachers on the internet.

The right angle

Facebook/Bellas maestras

What happens when a teacher is more focused on their outfit and looking good in a photo than they are on teaching the class? They usually end up in a lot of trouble at school. It appears this teacher is more concerned with getting the best lighting and angle to show off her look. Perhaps she’s teaching a photography or modeling class?

Class clown

Facebook/Bellas maestras

No matter how hard we try, some of us end up falling asleep in class. It’s not our fault – school can be tough! That was the case for one student who decided to take a nap in their class. Little did they know that the teacher found this hilarious as they woke up to find the teacher pulling funny faces at them.

Ready for the weekend

Facebook/Bellas maestras

Just because teachers have a class to teach doesn’t mean they have to sacrifice style. That seems to be the case for this dazzling teacher as she showed off her pins while making sure her students learned everything they needed. It looks like she’s ready to hit the town as soon as the bell rings and school is out for the week.

Checking in

Facebook/Bellas maestras

Being a teacher means you have to learn how to connect with your class. Of course, there’s no point in reading off the board if no one is following along, right? One teacher was busy writing notes on the board when she decided to check in with how everyone was getting along. Judging by her face, everyone seemed to understand.

Test Friday


It’s not just students that want to avoid tests. Teachers often have to go through the same motions as they make sure everyone keeps up with the work. While it means class should be a little easier – and quieter for the day – tests mean they have plenty of work when the class comes to an end. After all, who else will grade the papers?

Repeat after me


Many of us have been there. You know, the teachers that make us write the same thing 100 times until we get the point? This teacher took things to a new level as she made everyone in the class repeat things 200 times until they remembered everything in their notes. Hopefully, her lesson plans didn’t get this teacher into trouble at school.

All about the body

Twitter/Mike Moratinos

Some teachers have their own way of doing things. This dazzling teacher appears to be one on the list. Rather than grab a skeleton or anatomy model, she decided to wear a custom bodysuit that showed the class where everything is in the body – on her own body. One student couldn’t believe what they were seeing and had to photograph the moment.

Strike a pose


It appears that some teachers are in the wrong job. Sure, they know how to teach a certain subject and help the class take everything in, but some of them are born to be on the cover of magazines. This is one of the many teachers on the list as she showed the class her modeling skills by posing on the desks.

Stop, drop, and sleep


Many of us have learned that learning is hard. Sadly, it’s a little tougher for some of us to grasp. It seems this girl was really struggling in her class and needed to take a break. Rather than head to the bathroom or grab something to wake herself up, she decided to take a nap right on the desk in her class.

Blending in


Maybe if we grab a disguise, the teacher will never notice we’re there and let us get away with a quick nap in class? It seems that’s what one girl hoped as she hid underneath all her school work in the hopes she could grab a power nap. That or she became the main focus in a game of human Jenga?

He’s behind you


One high school class needed to film a project for their final. Little did they know that a teacher had other ideas. While they were focused on their script, he was busy having fun in the background. We wonder if they spotted the intruder before they handed over their final piece? If not, this teacher could have been in a lot of trouble.

Blossoming love


It’s not just high school romances that blossom in the classroom. Many teachers also want to try their luck and land themselves a date with one of their coworkers. It seems these two teachers were at it while the rest of the class got on with their work. Sadly, she doesn’t look as interested as Mr. T does in their relationship.

Stick to the rules


Let’s face it; many of us have tried ways to make papers seem longer and more fun rather than stick to the guidelines. You might want to rethink that plan if you have a class with this teacher. You could find yourself in a lot of trouble at school if you use anything other than their dictated font and size.

No laughing matter


Students at one school were in for a surprise when they arrived and found someone had stolen most of the letters in the school name. The result? They suddenly found themselves enrolled at LOL High School. This was the work of some seniors who thought they would give the teachers and students something to smile about at the school gates.

No late assignments


Teachers have all kinds of rules and standards. Thankfully, most of them suss out who are the ones to keep happy at the beginning of the year. One teacher wanted to make it clear that late assignments weren’t allowed in their classroom – no matter what. If the students did push the limits, their assignments were worth nothing more than trash.

Cry me a river


Of course, teachers aren’t allowed to bring bottles of drink into the classroom. They are, however, allowed to bring custom water bottles to class. This teacher thought it would be hilarious to pull a prank on their students by labeling their water as “students’ tears.” At least, we hope that it’s a joke and not really a bottle of sadness.

A few simple steps


Why draw something out when you could make it short and sweet instead? That’s the approach one teacher took when they welcomed a new class of psychology students. We’re starting to wish that all of our classes could be like this. Go through roll call and read a few slides before going home for the day? That sounds like a plan.

Things to remember


Many aspiring teachers aim to inspire and mold the next generation. This could be with life skills, valuable lessons, or the way people learn to grow and evolve in their lessons. While most teachers have certain life lessons, we’re not sure many that think remembering The Alamo is one of the most important things. Hey, we guess it’s all part of history.

Would you beleaf it?


It’s no secret that normal classroom rules go out the window as soon as a class learns they have a substitute teacher. So what happens when the class won’t listen and don’t care if they get in trouble? It appears one sub found a way to deal with them – and it came in the form of a substitute treecher. Unbeleafable.

Aim for the stars


We all need a reminder of our place in the universe every now and then. However, we’re not sure we need it in astronomy class. That wasn’t a problem for one teacher as they found the perfect poster to remind their students that everything from their wishes to their dreams were useless here. Ah, who doesn’t love a bit of positivity?

Which one’s real?


No Halloween costume stood a chance when one group of friends decided to prank their teacher and win costume of the year at school. Sure, it might have nearly ended their teacher’s life, but it was worth it for the joke, right? Now, all we need is a reliable teacher and some masks as we try to recreate the magic…

Plenty of support


If we’re honest, most senior classes want to push things further than the last class at the end of the year. One group of students found the best way to do just that when they left. All they needed was some underwear and time to string up their homemade decorations. Their “Thanks for the support” sign just topped things off. Get it? Support?

A musical moment


If you want to make a lasting impression on your school, then you might want to take a leaf out of this class’ book. That is if you don’t mind potentially getting into trouble at school. The seniors decided the best way to say “goodbye” to their headmistress was to hire a Mariachi band to follow her around all day.

All on the menu


There is one day that teachers, parents, and students collectively wish didn’t exist: teacher-parent evenings. Many of us have learned that teachers don’t make the most money in the world. What better way to brighten up the evening and make some money on the side than creating this menu? To be honest, we’d probably be broke by the end of the night.

Fun with work


Although some people strive to be the best teacher ever to set foot in the classroom, others know the side tasks that come with the job. Yup, we’re talking about all of the paperwork. Staying up until midnight grading papers and planning lessons? No, thank you. That doesn’t mean that teachers can’t have a little fun with their work every now and then.

A place on the wall


You know you’ve done a great job as a teacher when your students get impressively low scores. Wait, we might have got that wrong… Thankfully, getting a low quiz score here was no problem as students could join the wall of shame. Now, they’re no longer alone in their shame, not that most of us would want to end up on the wall.

No Walkens allowed


Teachers often seem a little boring, but that doesn’t mean they have no sense of humor. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. This teacher knows how to brighten everyone’s day, even if it is only a little smile. If you want to get a chance to talk to the comedy genius, then you’ll have to make an appointment as no Walkens are accepted.

Do it for the prank


April Fools Day is a great chance to flex our comedy muscles and pull pranks on our friends. One class came together to pull off the perfect prank. Not only did they rearrange the classroom, but they got everyone to lay on the floor and wait for their teacher’s reaction. The best part? Class was probably short while they put everything back.

Just answer true


It’s not just students that get bored with tests. It turns out that some teachers get tired of grading the same papers over and over again. We’re not sure why, as this test seems to be online. Surely it works it all out for the teacher? Maybe they took pity on the class and wanted to ensure everyone got at least one point?

Fries with that?


Some teachers have no idea what to do other than hang their heads and wonder where they went so wrong when someone gets every question wrong. Here we thought teachers were supposed to help us get better? Not this one. They gave up on this student and skipped the hard part by handing them a McDonald’s application form with their test.

Stick to it


While it might not be the most original prank to pull in the world, it takes a lot of effort to pull off walls filled with sticky notes. The senior class of 2013 wanted to leave their mark on computer class in the best way possible. We wonder how long it took to make Link and Mario come to life with sticky notes?

Question authority


When your teacher asks you to impress them, you don’t have to go crazy writing out all your findings or asking the important questions in the universe. Sometimes, it’s all about questioning the man. You never know; taking a stand against authority could be all you need to score a few extra points on a test. It might be worth a try.

Just five minutes

The Federalist Papers

It’s not just students that need a little power nap every now and then. Working as a teacher isn’t a normal 9 to 5 job. It’s constantly working on lesson plans, marking tests, and helping students all day long. It seems it was all too much for one teacher who couldn’t wait until he got home. Quiet reading, class. It’s time for a catnap.

You only learn math once


What is it about algebra? Teachers often make out like it will be a huge part of our lives, but we haven’t found ourselves having to find ‘X’ or figuring out equations just yet. One student thought they would be a comedy genius with their answer. If only they hadn’t messed with the wrong teacher who replied with the ultimate burns.

Playing with fire


If there is one thing most of us can universally agree on, it’s that wasps are pretty scary. If you’ve ever wondered what happens when a wasp flies into a science lesson, then here’s your answer. We’re not sure that we’d want to mess with this teacher after seeing him burn the ceiling just to get rid of a wasp.

A musical prodigy


There is something about an empty piano that makes many of us want to walk up and press the keys. We can’t help it; it’s too tempting. It looks as though one teacher’s had enough of students practicing their musical talents, but how will we ever know if we’re the next Mozart if we’re not allowed to practice now and then?

A moment of silence


We can’t help but wonder what it was that finally pushed this teacher to their limit. Most teachers have learned how to hide their pain and disappointment until they’re home. Not this teacher. He was so upset by something that he couldn’t help but curl up into a ball on his desk and hide from the rest of the world.

Spoilers, spoilers everywhere


‘Game of Thrones’ is one of the biggest shows to hit our screens in recent years. While many of us wanted to know what happened, we wanted to see it for ourselves. There is often nothing worse than a spoiler. That’s where one teacher had the upper hand: they knew what was coming and weren’t afraid to ruin the show.

A teacher always knows


Being a teacher means most people pick up on a few things. While we might think we have everything figured out and know how to get away with stuff in class, this teacher already has the upper hand – and he wanted his class to know. It’s true; teachers really do know when we’re up to no good, even when we think we’re sneaky.

A cruel joke


It’s not just students that love to mess with teachers. It turns out that some teachers have plans of their own. No matter how hard anyone studied for this test, they were about to learn that not everything is as it seems – depending on who you ask. We can’t imagine the panic in the student’s eyes when they discussed the test after class.

Smell the roses


Sometimes, you need to say something as it is. We’re not sure we would have still had a place in school if we were caught charging our phone in class. However, it seems to be a problem for one teacher who’s had enough of smelling her class. If one more person unplugged their air freshener, there would be a lot of trouble…

Where’d he get the coffin?


If there is one thing we love in this world, it’s someone that truly dedicates to a joke. This teacher has to be up there as one of the greatest. Not only did he bring a coffin to class, and not only did he get in it, but he also pulled the classic pose after learning just how awful his class had done on a test.

Out of hours


Being a teacher doesn’t end when the students leave the classroom. In fact, if teachers don’t want to get in trouble at school, they have to be available at all hours of the day. That was the case for one teacher, but what about when they wanted a break? All they needed was a sweater and a marker to create a stand-in.

Will you pass?

The Chive

Many of us have spent hours looking at the clock wishing time would go faster. Is it just us, or does time seem to go even slower when we watch it? This teacher had enough of students paying more attention to the clock than to class. All they needed was a little reminder that tests were nearly on the horizon.

Read things through


Teachers know who pays attention and who goofs off in class. Sometimes they need to get a headstart to figure out who can follow instructions. What better way to do that than embarrass various people in the class? Even the person taking this photo fell for the steps before realizing it was all an elaborate test to see who pays attention.

Pose for the picture


Picture day can be a big moment for many of us. Some want to make sure they look the best in their yearbook, while others want to find a way to stand out. It’s not just the students. Teachers often have to pose for hundreds of yearbook photos throughout their careers. Perhaps it’s no wonder some get a little creative?

Too old and too small


Being in school is more than just learning subjects – it’s also a chance to grow into the person we’ll be for the rest of our lives. One of the many things to perfect is our handwriting. Sadly for one teacher, someone’s handwriting was a little too creative – and small – to read. The best bit? They didn’t even give them an F.

Outta here

The Chive

Some teachers find themselves dreaming of their movie moment, aka the ones where everything falls into place, and they are hailed as a hero. Unfortunately, that day was no today for this teacher. When no one could get the answer to the question, they had no choice but to up and leave the classroom so they could cry in peace.

Brought to life

Facebook/The Sikkim Today

Some teachers want to be known as the ones that take no nonsense. Others? They want to bring their class to life and make a lasting impression on their students. It seems we’ve found one. Sure, you could talk about history from a book, but where’s the fun in that when you could act it out? That’s what we thought.

On the spot


One teacher thought they had sussed out the best way to make sure their students were never on their phones. That was until the students found the perfect way to get revenge. Before, they would be embarrassed about taking a call on speakerphone in the middle of class. Now, it was time for the teacher to feel what it’s like.

Taking a stand


If we had our way, most of us would turn up to class in our pajamas. That’s what one teacher did when his class was moved to the early hours of the morning. Apparently, he was so unimpressed by the change that he protested by turning up to all of his lectures in his pajamas. This is the professor most of us need.
