Yes, some people should not be teachers!

One teacher told my mother that I was stupid and wouldn't amount to anything. It embarrassed me for a few weeks as it made me feel even more of a freak at a time where I was going through a lot of difficult changes and personal challenges.

The daughter of a friend of mine also had a teacher who told my friend that the daughter was stupid and lazy, and possibly had learning difficulties. Worse, the teacher would tell the daughter that almost on a daily basis.
