I Know What the Teacher Did Last Summer

Summer. The one time of year you’re not getting up at six in the morning, hauling grading back and forth from home to school, and browsing the Internet for ideas for your classroom. (Okay, maybe you’re doing the last one, but only when you want to.)

Teachers don’t get the same kind of summer vacation that students do, but we hope these memes represent at least part of your time off school.

You’d never, ever eat in bed…

via GIPHY

Let’s be honest: We’re just lucky that Girl Scout cookie season isn’t over the summer.

With so much grading, you can’t make it to the beach…

via GIPHY

If you think really hard about your back-to-school planning while you’re soaking up the sun, that still counts…right?

Alcohol? For a teacher? You resent the suggestion…

via GIPHY

That patience and carefree attitude is all natural—no stress relievers required!

As you tell your students, too much screen time rots the mind…

via GIPHY

…unless you’re binging old episodes of Parks and Rec.

You’ll surely muscle through those bodily aches and pains…

via GIPHY

Lying on the couch can really take it out of you.

You will dress your very best…

via GIPHY

If the summer dress code is tank tops, drawstring shorts, and flip flops, then you are a model employee!

Only quick morning showers. No leisurely baths…

via GIPHY

You’re much too busy with lesson plans and seating charts for luxuries like baths.

Junk food? How dare you make such a wild accusation?

via GIPHY

If your students ask, you only eat fruits, veggies, whole grains, and lean protein.

Look, you’re recharging so you can be the best teacher possible in the fall semester.

via GIPHY

After the COVID-19 closings, parents across the country now know what it’s like to be a teacher. No one will ever deny you your well-deserved rest again.
