Can we all stand up and give our teachers a HUGE round of applause?
They really do have a rough gig. They work long hours, deal with those little angels all day, and then continue to work when they get home at night.
It never ends!
But at least they have a good sense of humor about the chaos unfolding around them.
Teachers, these tweets are for you!
1. Please don’t eat that.
Student in 6th hour notices a successful catch in the glue trap on the floor. Picked it up to show the class and a second student asks
“What’s that, a Hot Pocket?” ?

5. Just don’t do it in front of the kids.
I just took a pair of foam nunchucks away from a kid (don't ask, 5th grade is a weird age) and now my biggest struggle as a teacher is not flipping them around and doing a Michelangelo impression. #TeachingIsHard

6. That looks very stressful.

9. No “me” time.
I’ve had to pee since 9:45 and won’t be able to until 12:30, when I’ll have exactly 2 minutes before a meeting. #teacherprobs

11. Nothing more satisfying.
That priceless moment when you call a parent & the student is talking shit because they think you’re faking a call- then their parent asks to speak to them. Watching the color drain from their face ???#teacherproblems

12. Check in on them once in a while.

14. Sounds like a good use of time.
Sitting in a professional development where they lecture about how to not lecture kids. For hours. #teacherproblems

Teachers, we’re behind you! We feel your pain! Or, at least we’re trying to…
Power through the week and enjoy the weekend…if you don’t have a stack of papers to grade.
