10 Things Every Teacher Say and What They Really Mean

teachers day

Every teacher has a bag full of phrases to use on children but – but what the children hear is not always the meaning that the teacher is giving.

Teachers do tend to repeat themselves and have some go-to quotes. They think that these quotes and sentences do work in the class… but students we all know the drill right? 

Here are some of the most common phrases teachers say – and what the underlying meaning could actually be.

‘It’s your time you’re wasting, not mine.’

Okay!! This is the only thing I have now left with! Please shut up now.

stupid students

‘What are you all laughing at? Tell the entire class, we will also laugh!’

I am so angry that you are disturbing the class. Now I have decided ritual humiliation is the only approach left in my arsenal of responses.

‘I won’t be standing there in your exam’

For god’s sake, please just stop asking me questions.

‘We all will watch a film today.’

‘That is your LAST warning.’

Okay, you will get more warnings as I do not know where to go from there. However, yes, please behave.

Tell me your name do not worry. I will not remember your name anyway. This is just my way to threatening you.

‘Let me know once you are done with your gossip so that I can start my lessons.’
