We have all had our share of crazy teachers growing up. From the strict and mean to the funny and crazy, all the way down to the ones who bang their students, these are the people who are shaping the minds of the future.
These are the worst teachers in America. Or the best, depending on how you look at it.

10. Teacher who attached McDonald's job applications to failed tests
This teacher truly gave realistic expectations to her students who decided that they didn't want to pay attention in class. Instead of sugar-coating their short comings, she went was far as hand picking their career choice best suited for them. This teacher decided to attach job applications for McDonald's to the fail tests from her students. What a way to subtly shit on them while being hilarious. I would be pissed if I was the student though.

Her computer teacher asked her to pose for a photo with her braids hanging round her face and told her: 'My husband is not going to believe this.' That night she posted the cell-phone pictures on her Facebook page with the message: 'Right! This is for picture day.' Another parent whose child is the teacher's friend on Facebook let Ukailya's mother Lucinda Williams know that the girl's photos were on the teacher's page and people were mocking the hairstyle.

An English teacher was fired after writing a racy novel which detailed her teenage pupils' sexual fantasies. Leonora Rustamova was suspended from her post prompting mass demonstrations by pupils and a campaign by parents to have her reinstated. The story - Stop! Don't Read This! - originally appeared on a self-publishing website. Although it is claimed to be all invention, it features five genuine teenage pupils at Calder High School in Mytholmroyd, West Yorkshire. One student is described as fantasizing and flirting with 39-year-old Miss Rustamova, while she says she would do anything for a smile from another. She writes: 'It's getting harder and harder to see them just as kids.' Later she describes in the novel how the youngsters practice 'orgasmic moans', which sound like 'the soundtrack to teenage gay porn'.
3. Teacher who taped her students mouths closed
A mother of a Broward middle school student got upset after her 13-year-old daughter told her a teacher placed tape over her mouth. “I came home from a hard day's work to hear that my daughter had her mouth taped up unwillingly,” said Leah Freel. Jazlyn Freel attends New Renaissance Middle School. She said her teacher placed tape over her mouth. “She asked me to stop talking, and then a couple minutes went by, and I started to talk again, and she came to me and put it on my mouth,” Jazlyn said. “I had to cough, so I took the first piece off, so she went into her desk, and she took another piece out, and she put it on my mouth again.” Jazlyn said the teacher also taped another student's mouth, so they went to the administrator. According to the 13-year-old student, the teacher “told me to keep the tape on my mouth, and she told me that what happened in her classroom stayed in her classroom, and it was just a joke.” Leah said she went to the school and was told that the teacher would be reassigned. “I hope that this doesn't happen to any other children,” said the mother.
2. Teacher accidentally gives all students a copy of her homemade sex tape
A class of fifth graders in California got a shocking crash course on the birds and the bees courtesy of their teacher, Crystal Defanti, and an x-rated home video she accidently included in a DVD of classroom memories. The error was not caught until after the DVDs were distributed to the students and their families. Parents from Sacramento say the woman is a good teacher that made an honest but embarrassing mistake. The offending DVD starts with a menu screen that displays various school trips and functions. Click on one of them and you see kids in a classroom sharing stories. They then start clapping and the video suddenly cuts to sex. The teacher called one family's home the day after the DVD was sent and apologized profusely, asking the man and his wife to call every parent they knew to stop their kids from seeing the DVD too. She was later fired for being a whore.
1. Teachers who gave lap dances to students during school event
The kids are calling it “Two Teachers, One Chair,” and it has all the makings of a YouTube hit. But school administrators and parents are hard pressed to find humor in a sexual lap dance caught on video between two teachers at a spirit rally at Churchill High School in Winnipeg. The two teachers, one of whom was identified by students as phys-ed instructor Chrystie Fitchner, have been sent home without pay after the spirit dance before 100 students as young as 13 years old. There was butt-slapping and further gyration. Then the man dipped his head down between her legs and simulated oral sex. That must have been an interesting class.
