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

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

Facebook/Bellas maestras

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

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

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?

Facebook/Bellas maestras

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

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.

Daily Record

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

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

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

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.

Facebook/Ramsey Noah

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

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

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

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.

Facebook/Bellas maestras

Perhaps she’s teaching a photography or modeling class?

Too Pretty For Prison

This gorgeous woman is named Debra Lafave, and she was a teacher at Angelo L. Greco Middle School in Temple Terrace, Florida.

That is, until she was arrested after being caught having an affair with a 14-year-old student.

At her trial, her lawyer argued that she was too pretty to be put in a prison, and that she had bipolar disorder.

Illegal Road Trip

Lisa Lavoie was an 8th grade teacher at Maurice A. Donahue Elementary School in Holyoke, Massachusetts.

One of the student’s parents became suspicious about how close their son was to his teacher.

When the school came to ask her about it, she and the boy fled.

Apparently they took a “road trip” for two weeks and drove across 5 states before police finally found them in West Virginia. 

Took Her Students Home But Not For Tutoring

Lindsay Massaro was a student teacher at Frankford Elementary School in New Jersey.

In April of 2009, she was caught having an affair with one of the middle school students there.

She had inappropriate relations with him in her car and at her home.

She was caught when the student’s father reported an “ongoing relationship” between the two of them. 

Foreign Exchange Program Gone Wrong

Although Loni Folks was a fifth-grade elementary school teacher, she hosted a 16 year old boy who was a foreign exchange student in her home.

It wasn’t until a member of her community spoke up about the relationship the two had, that she ended up getting arrested for it.

At first she denied the claims, but later pleaded guilty to her crimes. 

Showered With Gifts

Teresa Engelbach worked as both a substitute teacher and a volunteer track coach at Senn-Thomas Middle School in Missouri.

It later came out that she had an affair with a 14-year-old boy who was a friend of her little brother.

Police say that she groomed the boy with lots of gifts, including clothes, a phone, and a $750 paintball gun. 

Running More Than Just The Track

Sarah Tolzien was an English teacher at Rich South High School in Chicago, as well as the Varsity Track Coach.

She was caught having a relationship with one of the 16 year old boys on her track team when she would sometimes drive him home after practice.

The boy’s parents caught them when they found incriminating texts on his phone.

She Was Offering A Different Kind Of Guidance

Samantha Solomon worked at a high school as a guidance counselor in New York, but she was let go when police discovered she was having an affair with a 17 year old student.

She initiated the affair by grooming the boy by taking him to dinner and on shopping trips.

She was actually never charged, though she was fired from her position.

Who’s The Father?

Nicole Long was working as an English teacher at a high school in Ohio when she began an affair with a 17-year-old student there.

The affair happened multiple times in her home.

However, by the time she was charged, she was already 7 months pregnant, and it’s still unclear whether the baby’s father was her husband or the underage student.

The Cool Teacher

Rebekah Todd, a gym teacher at a high school in Washington State was considered a “cool” teacher by all of her students.

She had already gotten in trouble when she was caught drinking with her students at a party and showing them an inappropriate video.

But she was arrested when it came to light that she was having an affair with a 17 year old football player as well. 

Run Away To Mexico

Angela Comer taught middle school, until she was arrested for having an affair with a 14 year old student.

No one knew about it until the two went missing for two weeks. They were found in a hotel in Nueva Laredo, Mexico by the police there.

Apparently, the two wanted to get married and had to cross the border to do so because of consent laws. 

Class clown

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.

Facebook/Bellas maestras

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

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.

Facebook/Bellas maestras

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

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?

Facebook/Bellas maestras

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

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.

Twitter/Mike Moratinos

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’s 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.
