Sometimes it’s hard work being a teacher, especially when you’re passionate about a subject and your students couldn’t care less. No wonder some teachers find themselves just going through the motions and counting the days until the next school break.
But sometimes, being a little TOO passionate can be even worse than phoning it in. And that goes double when you fail to check your lesson material in advance and wind up sharing a little too much with your students, as one teacher in Japan learned when he tried to show his kids a science video but accidentally gave them a peak at his porn stash instead.
Reports state that the teacher, who is in his mid-40s and works at an unnamed middle school in Yokohama, attempted to show his students a DVD about space on the morning of March 10. Unfortunately for him, the laptop he had connected immediately flashed up a gallery of 16 indecent still images, which were fully visible to the students for roughly 10 seconds.
The teacher in question reportedly apologised to the 38 middle-school students and continued with the lesson. As you might expect, though, the kids reported the incident to their parents as soon as they got home, and a full investigation was launched into the teacher’s conduct. A spokesperson for the school board stated: “It is deeply regrettable that an incident of this nature occurred as we continue to strive for excellency within our classrooms.”

Hmm, are we the only ones who feel just a teensy bit sorry for the hapless teacher here? He brought in his personal laptop in order to share a DVD about space with his pupils (which sounds pretty awesome, if you ask us), and it was only due to a freak accident that the kids got an eyeful of his private recreational materials. Then again, we don’t know exactly how explicit the images shown to the kids were, and either way one would really hope that any teacher who enjoys a bit of adult material in his or her own time would take the necessary steps to ensure that it remains for their eyes only.
Perhaps the moral of the story is to be diligent in keeping your laptop smut in separate folders – or on a separate machine – because we all know that technology is going to betray us all eventually.
