Just curious. Has your mother, in her 40 years of experience, ever run into a teacher she thought was really out there? I am not being sarcastic. I am asking this as a serious question. My children go to catholic schools and the teachers at the school are all fairly religious and predominantly women. They don’t seem to pose much of a threat but I keep reading stories about teachers who are just bad. Has your mother ever run across a teacher who should not be trusted with a lethal weapon?
Hmmm, I’d have to ask her. I can’t recall her ever indicating some such teacher was any unstable. Some she didn’t think highly of (mostly when she was head teacher) as far as their personalities or methods, but I don’t think she ever had that kind of doubt. When she was getting older some of her principals gave her a hard time and she didn’t like them, but I don’t think she thought them really unstable or unsteady.
I have to add this. Personally I never thought my teachers were unstable. But here’s a story: my HS social studies teacher jumped off our local I95 bridge about 15 years after I had been there. He was either under investigation or being sued regarding messing around with girls while I was there. I think I know who, too. Maybe he’d be easy to lose it.
BTW, is this what you were concerned about in this thread?
