12 Schoolteachers Describe The Creepiest Thing They’ve Ever Seen A Child Do

Vote up the creepiest things kids have said.

Kids may say and do some of the darnedest things, but they also do some downright creepy and shocking things, too. In this collection of Reddit posts, schoolteachers describe their creepiest students - those pupils who stuck in their minds for all the wrong reasons.

Some of these unsettling student stories from teachers are disturbing. Others are hilariously wrong. And a few are out-and-out terrifying. As one reader of the original Reddit thread put it, "This whole thread just shrunk my ovaries into dust." It's amazing how confounding, how maddening, and how creepy kids can be sometimes.

    One Student Threatened His Teacher

    From Redditor /u/notrandomatall:

    I've been teaching six-year-olds for the last two months, and a few weeks ago, one of the kids creeped the f*ck out of me.

    Every Monday, we take a trip to a nearby forest so the kids can run off the energy they've saved up during the weekend. During our walk between the school and there, we walk in pairs in a line. This day, on our way back, I end up walking last with this kid who didn't get a walking partner. This particular kid is a very talkative, super cheerful little guy who's rarely down or grouchy.

    Anyway, we're walking back to the school, and about halfway there, he says, out of nowhere, "Hey, Notrandomatall?"

    "Yeah?" I say, and turn to him.

    He stops, looks me in the eye, sporting an ear-to-ear grin, and says, "I'm gonna cut your throat," running a finger across his throat, still looking happy as ever.

    I kept a close eye on him the rest of the day.

    One Kid Was Ready To Take Extreme Measures

    From Redditor /u/FocusOnTheGirl:

    I'm a preschool teacher in the three- to four-year-old room. The other day after putting a child in a "thinking time," which is essentially a time out, I went over to talk to him about what he had done.

    Me: "Thomas, can you talk to me and tell me why you are on a thinking time?"

    Thomas: (staring forward, not meeting my eyes) "No, and I'll come to your house and [end] you if you make me."

    I stood there completely shocked. Then, he stood up, looked me straight in the eye, and laughed maniacally for a minute before hugging me and sitting back down.

    One Kid Collected Lifeless Birds

    From Redditor /u/imeuru:

    There was a kid in my third grade class who gathered [bird carcasses] while we were hiking and gathering things for our nature mobile project. He [removed their heads] and hung [them] on his mobile, along with the gore-covered sticks he used to [do it]. He was the kid who always smelled like cat urine.

    This Teacher Had A Not-So-Secret Admirer

    From a former Redditor:

    There was this girl in class who got picked on for being poor. I would always defend her and make a special point to talk her up. Because I was well-liked by the kids, she was no longer being teased and those same bullies would now play with her.

    So one day, she asks me if I have a girlfriend. I tell her I do. She then says that she wishes she was my girlfriend so that we could have [intercourse]...

    I forgot to mention, this was a first-grade class; she was six.

    This Kid Drew A Mysterious Figure

    From Redditor /u/copoisoning:

    I'm a teacher's aid for a three-year-old program at a small school, and this is one of the freakiest experiences of all my (two) years being there:

    This child, Diego, was given the assignment to draw his family. He was all smiles and giggles while doing it, and he drew his family in color - except for one figure, which was taller than the rest and colored in black.

    When I asked him who that figure was, the smile disappeared from his face, and he became silent and would just stare down at his lap.

    I asked about his family; apparently, he just has a brother and both his parents living at home which would account for four figures. The black figure was the fifth...

    The only thing I was able to get out of Diego was "Fernando" when I pointed to the figure and asked who that was.
