12 Scenes from the Movie Elf That Perfectly Describe the Week Before Christmas for Teachers

Watch these scenes from the movie, Elf, and you’ll realize how they perfectly sum up what it’s like to teach in December.

You’re almost there teachers! After months of hard work, long days, late nights, and endless challenges, your much-anticipated holiday break is finally here. Well…almost. You just have to get through these last few days before you get that much-needed recharge time. The days before break can often feel like a roller coaster of emotions—or a lot like your stuck in scenes of the movie, Elf. Take a look and see if you can relate!

1. When your morning is so busy that you don’t get to your coffee until it’s cold…

2. When your colleagues don’t have the same cheerful Christmas spirit that you do…

3. When you don’t think first, and you just do (which is sometimes a good thing)…

 4. When your entire class just needs to work some sillies out…

5. When your students won’t settle down after the classroom holiday party…

6. When someone brings glitter into your classroom before you can stop them…

7. When your Pinterest holiday activity doesn’t turn out like the online pictures…

8. When you just need to break out in song…

9. When you show your excitement for Santa just as much as your students…

10. When you get to the end of each long and crazy day…

11. When those kiddos say or do something truly sweet, and you realize you will miss them a bit…

12. When you remember your holiday break isn’t actually that long, and you’ll see them again soon…
