A 21-year-old is going viral after sharing
the weirdest things about teaching kids
just a few years younger than herself.
Megan Diskin is a college student at the
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
She’s also a student-teacher who
works with high schoolers each day.
According to her, that can create a pretty weird
dynamic in the classroom, as Diskin explained in a
TikTok video that now has more than 110,000 views.
For one, her clip says that students
are constantly telling her she’s “hot,”
and finding her social media pages.
The 21-year-old adds that she’s “extremely uncomfortable”
in class at times. She also said that the students are
constantly asking if she’s “old enough” to be their teacher.
Diskin’s video drew plenty of comments on TikTok,
with many users sharing similar experiences. “Girl yes,
I got hired at 20 … to teach seniors,” one user wrote.
“I started teaching high school at 22 and this still happens.
Don’t be discouraged,” another wrote.“ About to run a lab
for undergraduates at 22 and I’m terrified,” another added
