Sixty-two-year-old culinary arts teacher Robert Vandenbulcke was recently arrested on suspicion of sexual assault against a 15-year-old student. The student alleges Vandenbulcke dropped a towel in front of him, and while picking it up, rubbed the back of his hand on the student’s groin. Vandenbulcke allegedly made eye contact with the student while assaulting him. He has been arraigned on charges of indecent assault and battery on a person over 14.
Elizabeth Ann Schneider
Thankfully, this bad teacher kept the students out of the scandal, even while acting irresponsibly. The teacher, who The Smoking Gun identifies as 24-year-old Elizabeth Ann Schneider, reportedly shot pornographic videos of herself in the classroom. Schneider did not film while students were present, nor did she share the videos with any students. Still, it’s easy to see why parents wouldn’t appreciate Schneider’s actions.
She currently faces no charges but has been fired and banned from the school campus. While Schneider’s private movies didn’t hurt any children, the questionable decision to film them on campus lands her a spot on the worst teachers in recent history list.
Here’s another school employee who got way too physical when a student wouldn’t return a basketball in P.E. class. In response, Anthony Chidester grabbed the boy and slammed him into the wall, then to the floor. Other students, reportedly concerned for the eighth grader’s life, fought to pull Chidester off of him. The school fired Chidester after video footage of the incident surfaced, and he’s now being charged with misdemeanor assault.
If this list of worst teachers in history is driving you to drink, you’ll be excited to meet this next teacher…
