Nearly everyone who attended High School has at least one story of an upset teacher or student storming from a classroom. Bottle up hundreds of teenagers for hours each weekday and it’s bound to happen. Now that cameras are ubiquitous, however, these intense situations are beginning to pop up on the web for everyone to experience.
A student in the Dallas suburb of Duncanville, Texas this week gained internet fame for lecturing his teacher about her lecturing abilities – or, rather, her lack therof. The student, named Jeff Bliss, was recorded by a classmate as he made his way out of the class room. During his exit he complained that the teacher only handed out “packets” instead of actually teaching.
“I’m telling you what you need to do,” said Bliss. “You want kids to come into your class, you want ’em to get excited for this? You gotta come in here and you gotta make ’em excited. You want a kid to change and start doing better? You gotta touch his freakin’ heart.”
Dallas TV news station WFAA has interviewed Bliss, who stated that he doesn’t regret his rant and stands by his statements.
WFAA was not able to reach the teacher seen in the video, though a Duncanville school district spokesperson told them that the district is “currently addressing the situation.” The spokesperson also implied that the teacher’s classroom conduct could be investigated as well, though the student’s issues “could have been handled in a more appropriate way.”
