Bad Teacher

Synopsis: When her wealthy fiancé breaks it off, gold digger Elizabeth Halsey returns to middle school: she's an awful teacher but wants to save for breast-implant surgery. She brightens when Scott, a new teacher, turns out to be rich, and she stops showing films and sleeping in class when told there's a bonus for the teacher whose class scores highest on the state exam. Her competition for Scott and the bonus is cheery and tightly wound Amy. Amy digs for dirt on Elizabeth who cheats her way toward Scott's bed and the money. Honesty with students seems to be her only skill. She ignores Russell, a droll gym teacher, who looks on. Will she succeed with Scott and get those new breasts?

BAD TEACHER !! Enjoy!!

Alright folks, can we all settle down for a second?

oops!! i know that you...hey you settle down

C'mon everybody settle down

Sandy..c' now guys its is not

a time to make silly jokes ...

its a time for a little bit of talking before

we really get to the important part.

Here we go, well its been another great year here at JAMS.

who can forget Mr.Pinkus's haunted classroom

Thank you Sandy, for that.

and I ain't afraid of no ghosts.

or the wild success of

the book drive for womens prison

which mrs.Pathacheks class sponsored

Thank u Beth, but as summer droves upon us,

its time not only to say goodbye

to another school year

but sadly also to say goodbye

to one of our faculty members

Yes, Elizabeth Halsey here?

there she is..

Elizabeth can you come on up here?

yes thats appropriate applause, I think.

Elizabeth, even though you are

only with us for one short year..

please know that we will always

consider you part of the JAMS family.

And we got you a little something.

Oh!! Thank you.

Wow..almost $40, thank you.

You're very welcome, speech??

Ok well, i'm really terrible at this types of thing

so, i'll make it quick

Ah, i know i've only been here a year,

but there's so much i will miss.

my students, probably most.

And I wish that i had gotten to know

all of you better.

but,between four classes and planning a wedding

my plate was full

still, I know that our students are

in good hands.

and even though i'll never teach again professionally.

I've realised that i dont need a blackboard or

a classroom to set an example.

Adios, b*tches!!

Baby doll..

i'm home.

in here..

get yourself hot coz i'm gonna suck

your dick like i'm mad at it

Oh! look, your moms here.

Hi Mom, what a fun surprise.

Suitcases, honey are we going on a trip?

Aah..Elizabeth, we need to talk.

- Sure.

I'm starting to think that maybe we need to take a break



Tell her what the accountant said.


Steven said that you

spend $16,000 last month.

He thinks you're bad news

- I know women like you.

Damnit Mom! I told you i could handle this

- I just want to ask her something.

you truly love my son?

- I love him so much it hurts.

Alright then, when is his birthday?

- Mom...

i'm know..that is just

offensive that you would even ask me that

It's today..

I know..

thats why i got you this okay

honey, happy birthday

Austin Market?

okay fine, i'll sign the prenup.

It's over, Elizabeth.

Mark, I'm pregnant.


-No you're not

Okay fine, I'm not actually pregnant.

You know what, i'm starting to wonder ...

whether this is always been about the money.

You never loved me.

I dont love you?

I have been listening to you

whining about opera for the last year.

Okay, If the younger generation doesn't get into opera

then guess what? no more opera!

An art form has died

If opera goes away, we're f***ed.

I want my ring back.

What am i supposed to do? Huh?

where am i supposed to go?

There she is, Elizabeth Halsey.


I am so excited we're gonna be across-the-hall mates.

But I'm so's because

your relationship ended

Who are you again?

- Amy Squirrel.


- Yeah, you know.

Don't worry, you were..kind of a long bolf last year

and so... busy planning the ... wedding

I found him in bed with somebody else

- Oh my Gosh

It was a another man

- shut the front door!

Look..I know you kinda skated by last year

doing the bare minimum thing

but i just wanna say, now you're back, I just know

you are gonna get your teaching on
