We all remember the kids who stood out in class as being "weird," or perhaps just a little bit "different" from the average pupil. Imagine teachers, who literally have hundreds upon hundreds of students over the years. To be a fly on the wall during the most awkard of times would be, well - priceless. But you don't have to do that! We've compiled the stories from teachers who described the weirdest things their students were ever caught doing.

A Fourth Grader Went Horror Movie Scary On Her Teacher

From Redditor/u/youhavelobsterhands:

One of my fourth graders started singing while she was doing her work. "One two Freddys coming for you..." she then looked up at me and said "He's gonna get ya Ms.Youhavelobsterhands" Later on I was fidgeting with something because YES SHE WAS FREAKING ME OUT. She says out of the blue "You nerrrvous?" Later on she goes "You better not be the last one in your car alone." Freaky, freaky child.

A Child Thought He Was A Prophet

From Redditor /u/dr239:

My weirdest had to be the kid who insisted he was a prophet. He wouldn’t do a lick of work because apparently, prophets don’t need to read and write and know basic math. His entire family also believed that he was a prophet, and fully supported him in his choice not to do any work. A decade later, I can still picture us sitting at parent-teacher conferences, with the family across the table arguing “He doesn't need to do math, 'cause he's a prophet! Prophets don't do math! Would you make Jesus do math?'

A Kid With Potty-Training Issues Smelled His Own Work

From Redditor/u/hmmmkay:

I once had a Kindergartner who had a lot of issues with pooping his pants. He would crap his pants and just go about his day as if nothing was out of the ordinary until the kids around him would get a whiff and say something. The kids were very nice about it and would usually come up and quietly whisper it rather than yell it out in front of the whole class. But I digress...

One time this kid was in the bathroom too long and I was starting to get worried. I knocked on the door several times and asked him to finish up and come out. Each time he would just yell out "No! I'm busy!" So finally I had to open the door and found him standing in the corner of the room facing the wall, holding his underwear up to his face and inhaling deeply. There was a huge turd in his underwear.

A Student Lapped Up His Own Saliva In Hopes Of Not Getting Busted For Sleeping

From Redditor/u/NipponNiGajin:

I had a kid walk into a class to take a math test, fall asleep on his desk with his head pillowed on his arms, drool all over the table in his sleep, I'm talking a full on puddle here, wake up to realize what he's done and then spend the rest of the class trying to suck the drool back up as subtly as he could. Yes he did suck it all back up. Yes he totally thought he got away with it.
