Distance learning is a thing that’s still happening all over the country, and with the way things are going, it’s likely to be a part of our lives for at least the rest of the 2020-2021 school year.

While parents are struggling – to help their older kids, to be home to assist their littles, to find enough booze at the store to keep up with it all and enough hours in the day to squeeze in a good cry – teachers are bearing the brunt of the pain.

They’re trying to teach 5 and 6 year old kids over the computer. They’re teaching kids how to work the internet and learn math. They’re dealing with frustrated parents, new rules every day, the threat of a serious illness, and the fact that many of their students don’t have access to all of the necessary tools.

If that’s you, you’re definitely in need of a laugh – here are 15 jokes that might make your day just a little bit better.

15. Oh, Wednesday.

You lovely, lovely day.


14. It was a beautiful time.

Hopefully it will come again some day.


13. Teachers are going to have a new resume entry at the end of this.

If they’re still sane. Not that you need to be sane to work in IT.


12. They are unprepared.

All of them, every time.


11. This is not what they signed up for.

And they signed up for a lot.


10. Everyone is going to need glasses.

As if we didn’t already.


9. It’s a much longer story than that.

And no, you can’t get off.


8. The George Costanza face is the best one.

Kids are so cute and also frustrating.


7. It’s like being reviewed every single day.

That does not sound like fun.


6. Just try not to cry.

I dare you.


5. Please don’t stop.

You’re the only ones getting us through.


4. It is their way.

You cannot change it.


3. Who is saying this?

People who need to spend ONE DAY trying to teach online.


2. Your face is going to get stuck that way.

Wait…it probably already is.


1. It’s important to celebrate those moments.

Rare as they may be.


If you’re a teacher, my hat is off to you.

I hope you get all of the gift cards for Christmas, and by next summer, I hope a nice vacation is in the cards.
