There’s no doubt about it: teachers have a tough job. They put up with a ton of BS and I think we can all agree that they don’t get paid nearly enough money.
My sister and one of my best friends are teachers so I get a pretty regular dose of all the trials and tribulations of being a teacher in today’s day and age.
Here are 15 hilarious tweets from teachers that will make you sympathize with them even more.
1. Here comes a meltdown.
