Fall Semester vs. Spring Semester: A Visual Guide

When you’re a teacher, your calendar goes against the grain of the rest of the world. In the fall semester, when everyone else is talking about the year almost being over, you’re just getting started setting up your classroom, making goals, and looking forward to a year of fresh starts and new opportunities. And in the spring semester, when everyone else is rolling on the high of New Year’s resolutions, you’re staring down four solid months of nonstop class time, with spring break perpetually feeling too far away.

Here are some teacher memes to show what the school calendar is really like.
