A Geometry/Science Teacher

I subbed today for the same teacher as yesterday.

A group of students began telling me some horror stories about other subs they've had.  These stories ranged from examples of unabashed racism to sexual harassment.
Knowing teenagers, I'm sure there was at least some exaggeration to their stories, though if they were only half true they were still pretty outrageous.
While I know that I have never done anything even remotely similar to what these kids described, it did still make me worry about how a tasteless joke or misheard word could quickly escalate into a career destroying  rumor.
