No, it's not illegal, but it's very unprofessional. A teacher isn't allowed to scold at pupils. OP, you deserved it. I am almost a teacher myself, I know that students can be a pain in the ass, but you did something a teacher should never do. Besides of that, I think you reacted too late. If a student is bothering you, you have to act immediately. A blank stare, a comment, a note...you can't expect your students to behave if you don't punish misbehaviour soon enough.

77, in some states including Michigan where I am from it is still illegal to curse infront of women and children. it's an antiquated and little known/ enforced law but a woman pressed charges against a man a few years ago and won :-/

85: your comment is contradictory. "a teacher isnt allowed to scold at pupils" then "you cant expect students to behave if you dont punish misbehaviour enough" Firstly, YES, teachers are allowed to scold students. in public schools they cant use corporal punishment (in america), but technically there is no law against teachers scolding or cursing at a student. it may be against "school rules", but if they were to sue its much more likely that the case would be thrown out. and secondly, teachers punishing students doesnt make us behave, it makes us call you a bitch, and misbehave more to piss you off. if you want students to behave, be someone we actually respect-something you wont get from punishment.

"I am almost a teacher myself" Not that I have ever sworn at any of my students, but when people make statements like that, they sound completely retarded. Your certification courses or BA in music therapy or whatever the fuck do not qualify you to have an opinion on the subject.

"Firstly, YES, teachers are allowed to scold students. in public schools they cant use corporal punishment (in america), but technically there is no law against teachers scolding or cursing at a student. it may be against "school rules", but if they were to sue its much more likely that the case would be thrown out." Well, it's not only against school rules, it's just a very disrespectful and completely incorrect thing to do. It's the same if a parent calls his little daughter 'a fucking bitch' because she's talking too much. There is no law against that, but it's so inappropriate. That's one of the first things we learn here in college: you don't beat children, you don't scold at children and you don't let them them go outside the class without a supervisor. Ever. "and secondly, teachers punishing students doesnt make us behave, it makes us call you a bitch, and misbehave more to piss you off. if you want students to behave, be someone we actually respect-something you wont get from punishment." I think you misunderstand the concept of punishment. Or you have bad experiences with it, could be. Let me explain it: punishment is the last step a teacher takes after a couple of warnings (like blank stares, a comment...). I don't punish pupils because I don't respect them, I punish because they deserved it. Everytime I come into a new class, I start by telling my rules (raise your hand if you want to say something and don't talk without permission). Ofcourse, someone is breaking those rules within the next 5 minutes (I don't expect them to act otherwise, I've been a pupil myself) and then the teacher has to reacts immediately, so that everyone knows they have to follow the rules. If the same pupil bothers class two more times, he will get a note. I think that's fair, and has nothing to do with being disrespectful against students.

my teachers in high school cussed at us all the time, they almost never got in trouble for it. I'm also from a "hick" town :-p they only really got in trouble if they laid hands on the student

I've known 3 teachers that have sworn at students. Twice, to call a girl (the same girl both times in fact) a bitch. once because kids were laughing and yelling and running when our school was on fire.
