A high school teacher is sharing the hilariously “ridiculous” emails his students send him — and the viral footage is proving just how much times have changed at school, and how funny kids can be.
While we’ve seen creative students go viral in the past — like the teens whose school haka gave millions of TikTokers goose bumps — these high schoolers’ emails are cracking people up across social media.
In his first gallery posted to TikTok — captioned “It just gets crazier and crazier” — Baechler gained 3.9 million views, 477,000 likes, 25,000 saves and 3,600 comments.
While some students’ emails expressed concerns for their grades — “a 79????????? Do you hate me????????” one teen wrote — others delved into the teacher’s personal feelings, asking, “Do you have any preference between period 3 or 4?”
For many TikTokers, the act of emailing a teacher was a whole new concept.
For others, it was the informal tone of the students’ emails that shocked them.
“You MUST be chill because I wouldn’t even DREAM of sending emails like these to my teachers back in the day 😭” wrote @blckmrktbaklava.
“Are you telling me I’m being embarrassingly formal with my emails,” asked @peregrineupthere.
With Baechler’s second gallery, the teacher gained 14.6 million views, 2 million likes, 107,000 saves and 16,000 comments.
“What can you even respond to half of these? 🤦🏻♂️” the video’s caption reads.
People were taken aback by the kids’ wit and sense of humor.
“These kids are genuinely so funny,” commented @taylor_borja.
To this, Baechler responded, “Even funnier in class 😂”
Judging by the tone of the emails, it’s clear “Mr. B” is a trusted and much-beloved teacher at his school.
One student’s email wasn’t so much funny but rather emotionally honest.
“About today — sorry, I was in a bad mood,” they wrote.
“they ain’t your students anymore, they your friends 😂😂” wrote @treeezyyy.
“you can tell you’re their fav teacher,” commented @mishisyarizonas.
Considering just how stressful teaching can be, it's good to know that educators like Mr. B can find humor in his career, while connecting with his students in a meaningful way.
