A lot of people have it tough right now as far as work goes, but I think that being a teacher these days would be very difficult.

My sister is a high school Math teacher and she’s been filling me in on just how frustrating it is…and she’s not even back in the classroom yet.

But some teachers are back in the building with kids and, because most teachers in the U.S. are underpaid and don’t get the supplies they need, they have to get very creative with how they’re going to teach kids in person during this health crisis.

And I think all of the teachers deserve an A+! And a raise!

Let’s take a look…

1. Dad for the win!

This is a good idea.

Clean hands will be ready to go whenever we get back into the classroom!

2. Get into your little trucks.

How cute!

No playing. Masks all day. Six feet apart at all times.School seems like a frightening place, when you read about all…

3. Put on the wings.

And stay at least 6 feet away from each other.

4. Book Boats! Very cool!

And I bet the kids love it!

5. A cool history lesson.

And they’re coming in handy these days.

6. Follow the lines.

It’s like the episode of The Brady Bunch where they mark off the floor to separate the room…you remember, right?

7. Safe and secure.

This will keep the kiddos away from each other.

Happy 😊. This space feels happy. After measuring and cleaning and decorating and measuring and taping and hanging and organizing and…did I say measuring?🤔 This home-sweet-classroom feels happy and worth every bit of work put in this week. I hope my students feel happy when they walk in here in a few soon. I will be sharing more of the details but for now I’m so excited that the bulk of the work is done ✅. . . . #classroomsetup #classroomdecor #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowingteachers #teacher #teacherlife #backtoschool #covidteaching #socialdistancing #socialdistancingclassroom #firstgradeteachers #classroominspiration

11. Ready to go!

A lot of hard work is going into this.

12. Time to break out the plastic.

It is what it is…

What a crazy time, huh?

How about you?

Do you have kids who are back to school? If so, how is it going?

Or maybe you’re a teacher who has also had to be creative with how to safely teach kids in the classroom?

Talk to us in the comments! We look forward to hearing from you!
