someone who teaches english class
1. a good english teacher helps you improve writing, public speaking, spelling, etc. they don't just make you write essays, they do fun activities too. most english teachers are like this in elementry and middle school.
2. a bad english teacher is someone who forces vocabulary and essays on you and expects you to know how to improve your writing when they say "this paragraph wasnt strong enough". they also make you over analyze stuff when the author was probably just being straightforward! they may hold a grudge because they were fired for the next year and are moving to south africa. they also hate your class because they think you dont like him because he is gay when you really dont care!
1. english teacher: ok class, today we are going to watch a movie of the book we just read and fill out a sheet comparing the two. there is also a worksheet on how to compare books to movies.
2. A.english teacher: you really need to make your writing stronger
student: how can i do that?
english teacher: you can turn it in to me again on saturday at 11:59 pm for a 10% grade deduction
B.english teacher: i was surprised that your writing was so good this time. maybe it was a little too good.
student: wtf??
english teacher:i think you used another source for this essay
student: uh, no i wrote this essay
english teacher: please credit secondary sources
C.english teacher: i think you dont take this class seriously and you make me and my class into a joke
student: no i spend hours writing my essays for your really hard class and i dont make fun of the class, i just make jokes when were not doing anything and theyre not about you or this class
english teacher: please take this class more seriously and dont make fun of my poster that says "i dont even think straight" and has a rainbow on it
student: umm... i have never made fun of that (but i could if i wanted to)
D.student: have a nice weekend mr. ______
english teacher: *grunts*

1. Someone who writes two pages for every one page read, and sees some form of symbolism and deeper meaning within every word.

2. Someone who is so terribly biased toward their own comprehension of the text that they mark what their students thought the text meant wrong because it wasn't what they thought.

(usually they are both 1 and 2)
1. It was kinda windy today
normal people: huh, it's windy. I should bring a coat
English teacher: the wind is the spirit and breath of the universe, some tremendously important event is about to occur!

Get a English teacher mug for your dog Vivek.
Didn't use her own clothing to look good in school or college, copied someone else's style. Likes a blow job. Drinks underage. Worries about her boyfriend and other woman and grabs on stuffed things at night. Only ever likes her hair long. Isn't conservative and maybe is even a fucking petafile. Her providers must pet her files. Talks about who's she's associated with to complete strangers. Is pushy and demanding. Cruel to vaginas and doesn't care to her own breath.
That English Teacher is going to ruin Philadelphia please let a male teacher work there instead.

A dumb fucking monkey that wanted to be a teacher but she was too retarded so she settled for English . They tend to have a FUCKING MASSIVE ego and they think what they do is important, even though they have the attention span of an un-laised fucking shoe
