Teachers Learn The Hard Way Just How Brilliant Their Students Are

Many people who are teachers have had a desire to teach children since they were children themselves. They held onto that desire, making it a matter of consideration for many years until they were finally able to attend college and eventually, have classes of their own. At that point in life, they probably thought that they were going to shape the mind of today’s youth but in many cases, they ended up being taught a little something themselves. That is what we see in the following hilarious stories about students and their teachers.
