About

Dumb $#!% My Students Say is a blog designed to share the hilarity that comes with the ever responsible duty of educating youth today. It’s a chance to blow off some steam and share the things that make teachers chuckle between lecture and lesson plans.

In addition to the comedy, thanks to the students who will forever remain anonymous, there are legitimate syllabi and lesson plans for those who place themselves on the front lines. Like the economy boosting pennies on the front counter of convenience stores … need a plan, take a plan … have a plan, leave a plan.

Live, Love, Laugh and Learn.

    Your website is abusive and unprofessional.
    It exudes disrespect for the students you hope to teach and educate
    and deserves a failing grade.

    • Every student knows about the site. Thus far, it’s helped them learn to laugh at themselves, especially when teachers stick their feet in their mouths just as much (blog to follow). As a matter of fact, the comments and instances have been used with graduating seniors during their annual roast and toast, which is attended by parents, family, and friends. I failed to mention the talent show where kids immitate the teachers.

      It seems to me, people who don’t know the whole truth need to relax a bit before being so judging. Swing on by, teach with me. I invite you to take my students and teach them from the same syllabus. Let’s see how far you get maintaining your high and mighty authority and pseudo compassion. And let me sit back and watch students read the condescending lecture; marching orders they’ll eat up and spit back. People who ASSUME there exists a disrespect doesn’t know what goes on in the classroom. They, like you, don’t know that I manage a dozen kids, each with a different diagnosis coupled with pharmaceuticals and drama at home. Being the “instructor” takes the back seat to being someone who can truly understand. I guarantee I’ll get more out of my kids as they learn to laugh at a constipated world full of angst and critics such as yourself.

    What a great blog. Some critics, students and parents may disagree with this great piece of art but it’s all in good fun. Personally, I think some students deserve this. Kids these days are just stupid. I knew people who would write: “Lol”, “Rofl”, “Lmfao”, etc. on their English tests. I even knew a girl who thought a carpenter was someone who installs carpets…

    Keep it up Walter!

    • ” … all in good fun.” Yes, Master Wayne … I should let people know that I generally inform kids when they’ve made the list. At my school it offers a chance to break the seriousness and learn to laugh at ourselves. I should also note that graduating seniors fall victim to an annual roast and toast, which is attended by family and friends. I guess we must have great students to laugh at themselves. It creates an unbroken bond and friendship that lasts. And from what I can tell (and see), the comaraderie makes all the difference. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

    This is disgusting! You should not be teaching -let’s see if your principal feels the same way.
