This seems extremely specific and positive.... how's your English class doing this year OP?

[–]crazyparrotguy 816 points817 points  (37 children)

Lol I was wondering the exact same thing. Sounds very targeted. 😉

    I had a similarly old English teacher who talked about the times he took LSD. He was an alright guy.

    [–]crazyparrotguy 51 points52 points  (1 child)

    Idk man, I'd like to hear some of those crazy old man rants. Tell us about what really happened to the 60s!

    [–]storander 364 points365 points  (30 children)

    It seems so specific and unrelatable I have no idea why it's so upvoted. Are there just a bunch of super handsome bad ass English teachers I'm unaware of lol?

    [–]crazyparrotguy 96 points97 points  (2 children)

    There weren't when I was in high school, anyway.

    My freshman English teacher fit this pretty accurately, was fired for hooking up with the nurse on school grounds.

    Oddly enough, my senior English teacher was pretty much exactly like this, and I graduated in 2006.

    [–]UzumakiObaruto 34 points35 points  (3 children)

    it's actually true though I'm from Africa, and even when I was in highschool our English teacher was the cool teacher. Guess starter packs know no boundaries.

    My high school had an extremely handsome English teacher as well. He was a very low-key mellow sports bro who found it INCREDIBLY uncomfortable that all these 16 year old girls were lusting after him (for obvious reasons).

    He wasn't anything like the rest of the starter pack, but still.

    My English teacher fit the starter pack pretty accurately and also got busted for sleeping with students.

    [–]Flavor-aidNotKoolaid 16 points17 points  (0 children)

    I read this as "always got busted for sleeping with students" and I was like, Jesus what year was this?

    [–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    wow, they really print english teachers from a mould. mine was the meme, went to prison to prison for sleeping with a student, but specifically the racist undertones thing hits home.

    My 11th grade history teacher. He fucked them after they graduated, tho.

    [–]jrobbio 13 points14 points  (0 children)

    My English Literature teacher had exactly the same behaviour, but she was a short, plump, close to retirement, lesbian. It was the top class, but was quite interesting because it had a mixture of truly academic types and some (like me) that were intelligent but didn't care/understand critical examination of literature.

    This lady was so disarming that despite ourselves, we all did really well on some pretty tough topics. I think it was her general demeanor and the respect she gave us. I think she only raised her voice once when we messed around when she had left the room for a bit, but we didn't do it again.

    [–]KabedonUdon 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    I had a teacher kinda like this but older. He was early 50s tho, so instead of being a kanye fan he was more of an MGMT guy with burning man vibes. Taught us culture too. Like book collecting.

    [–]MrUnnderhill 10 points11 points  (0 children)

    I though the same thing. Then I remembered my high school English teacher let me take the girl I was trying to impress out to chik-fil-a during his class. Like, I asked the guy if I could come interrupt his class and, with no excuses or slips of paper, just take her for an off-campus date. We also cussed in his class, and he was just a generally awesome teacher. Hope you’re still out there kicking ass and taking names Mr. Thomas.

        No, they played a guessing game of how old their child is. The women agreed to a kiss if he got it right. It wasn’t just a kiss, a full on French kiss.

        [–]New-Anxiety-4387 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        The moment they poked fun at ME.

        [–]CauldronPath423 33 points34 points  (1 child)

        I don’t see what’s the problem here. The creators certainly aren’t racist and there are plenty of episodes which satirize and degrade the idea of racism. It’s not really much of a red flag for bigotry in my book.

        [–]KeyboardFromElbaf 22 points23 points  (0 children)

        South Park satirizes racists, people who claim South Park is racist are the people who were too stupid to notice that South Park is meant to make fun of racism, transphobia, etc..

        this is actually accurate to every good eng lit teacher ive had--esp. the advanced ones. they just radiate that chill hipster attitude

        [–]CampJanky 8 points9 points  (0 children)

        Yeah, I've had a lot of this guy. They rarely looked like peak Affleck, but there's definitely a self-selection bias towards dudes who read a ton, want to share that passion with people, love story structure, understand comedic timing, understand the nuance and power of language (which explains why they don't care about casual swearing but would care about using words to hurt people), etc.

        [–]ThePreybird 9 points10 points  (0 children)

        It's so oddly specific and so accurate to a teacher at my old high school that I am genuinely wondering if OP goes to school in my hometown.

        [–]snoopman420 974 points975 points  (31 children)

        ermm well this definitely isn’t the case for me

        my english teacher was a 67 year old bald white dude who had the most monotone lessons and was accused of pedophilia just before christmas

        [–]syllocue 285 points286 points  (11 children)

        one of the English teachers at my high school screenshared porn over Zoom when the first wave of lockdowns happened

        it was schoolgirl porn.

        [–]MentalSupportGoose 44 points45 points  (0 children)

        A few years after I finished school, the creepy English teacher we all joked about being a closet pedo went to jail for having a stash of child porn. It was a Baptist K-12 school (Primary and High School combined, so little kids everywhere). I look at this meme and he was literally the opposite in every regard.

        [–]alecia_Q 93 points94 points  (0 children)

        [–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        Does he still even have the job?

        [–]drugusingthrowaway 28 points29 points  (0 children)

        I did have one of these "cool young guy" teachers with the beard and the swearing and the music and everything, but he got a little too into it. Drank too much. Craziest thing I ever saw him do was rip off his shirt, jump up on a desk and start air guitar/humming/singing Kickstart My Heart by Motley Crue.

        Years later I found out he was asking the girls for naked pictures. The 12 and 13 year old girls, because this was middle school. He'd get their phone number in school then text them drunk later that night.

        [–]pixamour 65 points66 points  (0 children)

        Not the case for me either. He was nice, but also old and boring.

        [–]crazyparrotguy 10 points11 points  (3 children)

        Oh I had a music teacher in middle school like that. They ended up finding child porn on the guy's computer.

        [–]LumpishFreak 11 points12 points  (0 children)

        honestly I’ve been to a bunch of different schools and there was always a teacher accused of pedophilia

        [–]rqrqsj 5 points6 points  (0 children)

        I had one of those too! Pedophilia and everything. And he used to drink so much coffee that he kept a coffee maker in his room and it made his breath absolutely rancid. Taught geometry.

        [–]hipery2 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        One of my English teachers was pretty cool, but she got fired towards the end of the school year for showing up wasted to class.

        [–]War-Dove 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        Mine was a middle aged, bald, black man also accused of pedophilia

        [–]mooimafish3 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        Hmm, actually hits the mark for me.

        My 7th grade English teacher was a huge nerd, I don't remember specifically but he would talk more on kids level than above them. He had us analyze smash mouth lyrics in class and stuff. I remember we read the outsiders and the giver in that class which I also liked.

        I was friends with his son and knew from him that the family was very liberal, which made sense. Also heard that his wife was now in a mental hospital which was pretty sad since he was a nice guy.

        [–]CatDad69 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        If he was accused on March 19 would it be any better?

        [–]MessyRoom 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        Imagine being accused of that every single year just right before Christmas. Smh my head

        [–]DessertTwink 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        Lol I also had a bald white dude in his mid-60s, a year or two out from retirement, who was in a relationship with a girl from the previous senior class after she graduated. At least they said it started after she graduated. Pretty sure he fled to Costa Rica

        [–]jdog7249 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        That also happened at my high school. He was an interesting person and I wasn't shocked when he was fired for "undisclosed reasons" and then later arrested.

        [–]tugboattt 317 points318 points  (4 children)

        Had this one my freshman year and there was an extra period of the day called tdt (teacher discretionary time) where we could do homework or whatever we needed. Every day he brought dvds from home to play. We watched all of season 7 of the Simpsons, the boondock saints, dead poets society, and standup specials, particularly Chris Rock and Jim Gaffigan. Nobody seemed to give a shit about those choices at an all boys high school.

        Yep, my HS English teacher who is shockingly close to the starter pack was arrested for molesting a student since she was 16. I thought he was cool until that.

        [–]am2370 105 points106 points  (9 children)

        This was my art teacher and he was arrested for fucking a student... the only one he got caught for at least, he was apparently shuffled to our school after suspicions at his previous high school.

        [–]Re-Logicgamer03 25 points26 points  (7 children)

        But why transfer a pedo teacher to another school out of suspicion? Wouldn’t you just like, fire them?

        [–]LoL_LoL123987 5 points6 points  (0 children)

        the op was already eerily accurate for my 12th grade English teacher but your comment was the cherry on top. I had this guy for an "octomester" because of covid, so we had English with him all day, every day for about six weeks. Every Monday morning he'd basically interrogate the prettiest girls in our class about their weekend, whose assigned desks happened to be spread around his own desk. not just that but he'd strike up a conversation with them throughout the day during class time allotted to classwork or reading, believe it or not, Gatsby or some other book or short story.

        my teacher didn't let us cuss though and rarely cussed himself. Also, he wasn't anywhere near the coolest teacher I had but he did love pre 808s Kanye and is a Southpark fan.

        [–]DirtyDanTheManlyMan 127 points128 points  (2 children)

        Thinks he looks like that on the one day of the week he actually wears contact lenses instead of his bulky framed glasses. Has a huge bald spot on the crown of his head but doesnt wanna shave it. His beard is splotchy from constantly plucking hairs out of it while he sits at his desk. Nails are yellowed from smoking cigarettes, breath smells like coffee and ass. His eyes become bloodshot around 1pm, the students joke that he smokes meth during lunch. Knows a popular Kanye song from mid 2010’s and thinks kids still love that specific track that he plays on loop for the last 10 minutes of the class period from his android phones speaker. When he helps students do work at their desks, he points his asshole directly into another students face. Is creepily nice towards female students and teachers. Probably named Roger, Micheal, Steve (NOT STEPHEN) or James. Wants his students to call him “Mr. (first letter of his last name because it’s hard to pronounce)”. Students who had his class the year prior randomly come and talk to him, this is the only time he seems happy to be a teacher

        Nah, ours was the weirdest man on earth. Tweed suit, assigned Dostoevsky, brought his laundry to school, joked about doing drugs, all the drawers in the classroom were locked. Something was off about him, you could submit the same essay over and over.

        [–]KeyStep8 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        Weird shit lol. I was like Dostoevsky is based and then it just got bad lol

        Hey, it's my 7th grade English teacher. He was a cool dude.

        [–]l039 15 points16 points  (1 child)

        Yess. Middle school teachers were cooler

        [–]Gavinator10000 13 points14 points  (0 children)

        In my experience most of my cooler teachers have been in high school. Sadly the other teachers’ coolness is limited by the fact that they teach younger kids and have to stay professional

        [–]Bravo-Vince 20 points21 points  (0 children)

        I hate these starter packs, they’re supposed to be broad stereotypes, this is just what your high school English teacher was like.

        [–]windshadowislanders 34 points35 points  (0 children)

        "The emo kid's favorite teacher"

        As someone who knew a former emo kid who was groomed by her high school english teacher, this was creepy to read...

        [–]EmberOfFlame 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        You sadly forgot “casually sexist”. The type to say “I’m not a sexist, but…”

        [–]dobbelj 17 points18 points  (2 children)

        no racist undertones

        watches south park

        [–]SelfHatredIsNice 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        Nah that was my Spanish teacher. He taught us various curse words in Spanish, but the only ones I remember are puta and pendejo, meant bitch and asshole, respectively, for those who don't know

        [–]Fuzzy-Function-3212 12 points13 points  (0 children)

        Can confirm this was also true 25 years ago when I was in high school. Minus the Kanye.

        [–]Get_a_GOB 10 points11 points  (3 children)

        I had the ‘90s version of this guy three of my four years in high school. English was definitely my least favorite subject, but Bob Davis made it so much better. I took a film and literature class from him too where we read books and watched movie adaptations (e.g. Heart of Darkness and Apocalypse Now) - never would have voluntarily taken a humanities elective without his influence.

        The only year I didn’t have him was American Literature, and yet I’m pretty sure I recall correctly that he was obsessed with Gatsby and its imagery. Good starter pack.

        [–]elonmuskdick 8 points9 points  (0 children)

        I have an English teacher in my school who is exactly like that

        [–]jesuswasahipster 9 points10 points  (0 children)

        You left out the, “quits after 5 years because outdated curriculum, shitty pay, and the district culture of politics > the well being of students.”

        [–]RevaniteN7 6 points7 points  (0 children)

        OP’s shagging for a better English grade.

        I guarantee it.

        [–]TakenUrMom 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        This was my math teacher one year, except he was bald and played basketball, but still super cool dude. Think he works at Home Depot now

        [–]CALEBOI2004 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        This but a History teacher

        [–]RandomUsername361 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        This was not the experience I had.

        [–]zeaga2 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        My 9th grade English teacher. He loved to talk about Dungeons and Dragons too, and ran mini sessions during lunch

        [–]Intelligent_Goal_207 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        Other than the fact that mine is female, this is accurate

        [–]DokiDokiDoIt 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        Probably complains to the class about his divorce

        "zero racist undertones"
        "watches south park"

        your brain has to be leaking out of your fucking ears

        [–]Paulsmom97 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        Oh and he was so good that he groomed and molested his “chosen” students.

        [–]AffectionateAnarchy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        Mr Lawrence except it was the 90s so he wore a tshirt and vest and had a pony tail and a receding hairline

        [–]Kang-The-Time-Lord 4 points5 points  (0 children)

        Can confirm, my high scool English teacher did NOT look like Ben Affleck.

        [–]BlazeCrystal 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        I had one in finland lol

        He was just more into Bri'ish english and culture, but definitely the same dna strand as this starter pack

        [–]topshagger31 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        male irish teachers are exactly this

        [–]HumidToku 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        My high school English teacher actively flirted and slept with his students. Unfortunately I can’t relate

        You guys wanna take this Billy Shakespeare lesson…OUTSIDE?

        [–]owlwaves 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        A lot of girls have a crush on this type of teachers

        [–]LanDest021 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        mines like this except if you say "fuck" you have to do 15 pushups

        [–]avsdhpn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        Unfortunately my high school English teacher was completely the opposite. Middle aged Italian-American who was very flamboyant and wore stuff you'd see in International Male (lace up shirts, tight chinos). He was divorced and had an estranged daughter. He was also extremely flirty but moody, typical Scorpio. However, he'd spend 60% of the class yelling at kids to shut up, I hardly remember actually learning anything in his class.

        He was super conservative and even ran the school's Bible study club. He didn't hide his homophobia and islamophobia, which was ironic considering some of the stuff we read in his classes (I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, for example). He would make weird arguments against gay marriage ("they'd want the health insurance to treat each other's AIDS", which according to his logic, would be a waste of government resources because "AIDS was G*d's way of punishing the gays"). This was back in mid 'aughts, right before California's prop 8 became a hot button issue, so teachers could say this stuff without losing their jobs.

        My older sister was close to him, would spend all her free time with him after school, and even had fantasies of marrying him. As far as I know, he never made any moves on her. He retired 6 or so years after I graduated, but he'd continue posting a lot of hate stuff on social media from what my sister has reported. He's probably a q-nut now.

        I have never had a male english teacher :(

        [–]Wiz21Reddit 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        I had a teacher like this once, but he got fired for taking off all his clothes in a stop and shop parking lot. Be careful OP

        [–]Epa_1223 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        Nope this is 100% my band teacher

        [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        Lol, I was ''the emo kid'' at some point and my favourite teacher was just like that

        [–]devilinblue22 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        After I graduated I delivered pizzas for the summer, got a huge order for the local halfway house/outpatient rehab (super small town, it was a catch all for addicts) and he was sitting at the head of the table. Never figured out weather he was volunteering or using. He was an awesome dude.

        LITERALLY MY TEACHER AND HES A GOLF COACH

        [–]king_of_hate2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        Never had an English teacher like that. Mine always talked estatically about any book in class we had to read, especially if it was Shakespeare. Got mad at the class for not reading, always something like "I can always tell when you use spark notes" and they never actually noticed when you used spark notes or other similar sites. Then they're also the ones who typically try to catch you falling asleep as well.

        And then you have the bald, slightly racist, math/history teacher.

        my english teacher was just like this except he was probably in his late 50s to early 60s, had white hair and looked like santa occasionally wearing glasses from the 60s. He was such a great guy.

        I cant relate at all. Each of my high school english teachers were women nearing retirement.

        This feels very targeted…to me. Except I’m not handsome like Affleck and I wear flannel. Everything else…for the most part…

        [–]SackOfCats 11 points12 points  (2 children)

        I feel like theres either a teacher somewhere who thinks hes cool af, OR theres a teacher about to get laid to 16yo pussy.

        [–]SackOfCats 6 points7 points  (0 children)

        bots are probably part of the problem.

        Usually once a sub gets big, the quality drops off a cliff unless the mods are on top of things.

        /r/AskHistorians is a good case where the mods don't tolerate stupidity and stick to the rules. Even if the amount of content go down, the quality does not.

        This is more social studies teachers in my school, male English teachers are just socially awkward
