Professor recreates memes as response to students’ finals week baloney


Do you remember that professor who gave his students a taste of their own medicine after he caught them studying Spanish in their Engineering class? Well, we found another teacher who came up with an unlikely and hilarious solution to their common problems in the classroom.

David Red is a Physics professor at St. John’s River State College in Florida. Like all teachers, David deals with quite a handful of crazy students during finals week. It’s that time in the semester when students who barely attended class or who didn’t study the material before exams suddenly come to his cubicle looking for extra credit or bargaining for a better grade.

“I love the students generally and most of them are fantastic people that are really trying,” he said in an interview with Bored Panda.  “But like all teachers that deal with thousands of students, there are the occasional few that drive you crazy.”

As response to the finals week BS he regularly gets, David has taken to hilariously recreating memes and posting them on his Facebook account. He said that the memes are mostly about “the elements of teaching that are frustrating to all teachers.”

The memes have also helped him connect to his students better, because he is communicating to them on their level.

“Anything that makes the students feel like I put my real-self into the class helps,” he explained. “If my real-self is in the room, then their real-self shows up too. And when they’re fully present like that, they learn.”

Take a look at his hilarious posts below:

All set for my meeting with the student that missed more than 30 classes this semester and emailed me to set up an appointment to talk about his grade.
