[rebelmouse-image 18350998 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Teachers have all the information you need to pass the class you are taking, but they also have so much more. A teacher is the one person in a classroom that truly knows more about everyone's business than any one student. Ask the teacher, they can give you the good gossip.

u/bee_tea_s asks: Teachers of Reddit, What was the Juiciest Gossip You've Heard From Students While in the Classroom?

you heard that from a 2nd grader!?

[rebelmouse-image 18360389 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A couple of weeks ago one of my 2nd graders was crying so some of the other kids in the class went over and asked what was wrong. Turns out her parents were getting a divorce because her dad was "messing around with 4 other women and one of them is having another baby" Those were her exact words. I don't even want to know what else that poor kid had to overhear.

Mom is busted

I teach kindergarten! One student a few years back was acting off, super hyper and behaving in ways she never had. When asked if she had taken her peanut butter at home (code for her ADHD medicine, as it was administered in a spoonful of peanut butter), she told us that her mom sold all of her peanut butter to some guy in their trailer park named Steve.

Better late than never

Not juicy, just silly. Good kid stayed after class to show me his anime drawings, ha ha, and started rambling about his family dynamics. He told me that his parents are still very much in love and are often go on dates. Sweet! Then he told me that there's a rule in the house that if the master bedroom door is closed you are to stay faaaar away and never interrupt. Sometimes they'll be in there for hours! Ha ha. Ha ha ha.

By the change in expression on his face I could tell he just figured it out.

Be careful what you tell your kids

I was in the back of the room looking for something in a cabinet. Two girls were having a conversation, oblivious I was there.

Girl 2 - "All the time. It's called Swinging. They think I don't know but I found stuff on my dad's computer."

Girl 1 - "That's so weird.

Girl 2 - "Right? I have to go spend next weekend at my grandma's because there's going to be a party at my house."

Kids say the darnedest things

[rebelmouse-image 18360814 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My first grader once came to school and told me that daddy drank too much last night and mummy made him sleep in the bath tub.

Another told me about the pubic hair grooming habits of her mother.

I've never gotten horrible gossip from my young students, but parents be aware, your family secrets are NOT secrets if your young kids know.

Serious drama!

[rebelmouse-image 18345354 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Oh boy...

A girl's mom had been renting out a storage unit and using it to have sex with her daughter's boyfriend. The girl and her bf were only together because the mom suggested it to the boy, so he could hang around her without any questions about it. When it came out, her parents got divorced and her dad died in a drink driving accident a month later trying to cope with it all. Really messed up.

This is more than a love triangle

[rebelmouse-image 18347515 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The juiciest gossip was always about fellow staff.

One of my students (11th grade) came to school and told me she'd ran into my boss in the weirdest situation that weekend....

Turned out, my student was dating and sleeping with another student. That second student lived with his mother who had recently separated from the father after the mom was caught cheating.

The man she was cheating with was my boss, who was still married.

My student had run into him as they were both sneaking out of the same house early on Saturday morning.

Turned out to all be true.

The truth gets out one way or another

[rebelmouse-image 18345517 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I teach kindergarten and they really do share everything that goes on at home! During our morning meeting one boy shared that his uncle was arrested over the weekend and would be in jail for a long time. I was curious so I asked what happened and he happily told me that his uncle was making lots of fake money!

Another time a student ran up to me and was so excited and the conversation went like this...

Boy: Ms. V! My dad is so awesome! He's so talented! Me: oh wow, that's great! What is his talent?? Boy: well he can chug a whole bottle of beer without stopping! Sometimes he drinks all six beers at night. Me: wowwww. That's awesome. I'm proud of him.

He's out!

[rebelmouse-image 18360815 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My calculus teacher told us about his friend at the school he worked at before mine who got fired for having sex in a dugout in broad daylight. They were found by the baseball coach.

Don't you just hate it when the baby comes out and it dosen't have your last name?

[rebelmouse-image 18360817 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The students told me that Mrs.SpanishTeacher's baby was Mr. SpanishTeachers. They went on to tell me that the two teachers had been caught doing the nasty in the library by a student. The saddest part was that they were both married to other people, and Mr.SpanishTeacher and his wife had decided that they weren't going to have children (his wife wanted kids, he didnt) The baby had his last name, so any kid who didn't already know knew as soon as the baby was born.

Don't underestimate the experience of a principal

[rebelmouse-image 18360818 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

One principal told me that she was dosed lsd by a student (putting one or two hits in her coffee) and just went about her day as normal, attended meetings, etc. She was familiar with the experience and didn't need to go home. She waited for another day to discipline him and let him know the legal implications of what he had done and how serious the police would find it if she reported.

If this kid only knew what this meant...

[rebelmouse-image 18350569 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I taught 3rd grade and had to take a mix of students with me to dismissal. A former student (let's call him B) was standing near me at dismissal. As his vehicle approaches, one of my current students (let's call him J) waves at the woman driving . I let B in the car and go back to my post. J tells me B's mom is really nice and I ask if they're neighbors or if he plays with B after school. He shakes his head and says, "My dad and his mom are friends. They're going to have a baby." I stand there confused, knowing that J's parents are married and had just met with me for a conference. He continues, "Well, we think they are having a baby, but my mom says the lady has a lot of friends and it might be E's (a student from another class) dad. I hope it's ours! I want a sister."

When things get exotic

About two other teachers who always hooked up in the teacher bathroom. It was two foreign teachers we had so to the student it was extra exotic.
