We wish more jokes would shape up like this. 😉
2. How many times have you asked this recently?
— Liliana (@LilianaJ89) April 28, 2020
Honestly, some of us have had to say this before distance learning though. 😅
3. Maybe we’re the problem after all.
— Christina O'Connell (@Irishroots115) April 23, 2020
We’re learning so much about ourselves lately.
4. How much practice did this take? 😂
Gotta love these high-school students messing with their teacher in cyberspace.

Meanwhile, I can’t even figure out where to point when teaching on-camera.
5. Teachers are nothing if not prepared.
— MrsCurran (@MrsCurran1) April 27, 2020
Anyone need a few hundred sticky notes, pencils, or paper clips?
6. Our teacher voices will always stay with us.
— Christine Cracchiolo (@christine_slp) August 27, 2019
We actually might be a little too fluent in “teacher voice.”
7. This hit home. 😂

Imagine if teacher evals and observations were like this.
8. This is probably every teachers’ eLearning nightmare.
My daughter had a Zoom class yesterday. The teacher's internet went out, so one of the kids was made the default host. He muted everyone, pretended to teach the class, and then just said "fart" over and over until the teacher was able to join back. It was amazing.
— Todd Coleman (@todd_coleman) April 29, 2020
He did make a few interesting points though.
9. There’s no better joke than a dad-approved joke.
i've never seen a more proud dad 😂 pic.twitter.com/lpLWugv4zt
— valeska (@iatemuggles) April 8, 2020
We’re definitely adding this to our joke repetoire.
10. Give us all the math puns.
I have a maths joke but I’m 2² to say it🙈
— Bitchuary (@_dmarian) April 1, 2020
This was acute joke. 🤓
11. The one thing we don’t miss about school: the copier.

— Laura (@technologylaura) April 23, 2020
It’s almost every teacher’s greatest nemesis.
12. Aliens would’ve made for an interesting in-class discussion.
Yesterday’s planned lesson for our class Google Meet session: discuss the impact of late 18th century innovations.
Yesterday’s actual lesson: a discussion on UFO’s, aliens and why they released this video now.
— Nicholas Ferroni (@NicholasFerroni) April 29, 2020
As long as there are lesson plans, there will always be classroom interruptions.
13. You know you’re a teacher when …
Yesterday one of my students called me mom.
I’ve officially made it.
— Jordan Michelle (@bringe_it_on) September 6, 2019
Is there a bigger compliment than this though?
14. Simple, yet effective. 😂
Lot of students having trouble with the types of quadrilaterals, so I made a handy chart to help them. pic.twitter.com/Jzk13hfGOW
— Kent Haines (@KentHaines) February 27, 2020
Visuals are always helpful, especially when teaching math.
15. A whole new meaning to “teacher’s pet.”
I’m trying a new approach to getting my students to read assignments and follow directions…let’s see if my cat guilting them will work 😂😂 #distancelearning #teacherlife #teacherproblems #crazycatlady #ElonEd pic.twitter.com/jcVeACLuYY

“Kaya wanted to remind everyone to follow the rubric for this week’s assignment and to put all research in your own words! He was very upset when most people copy and pasted information from websites and forgot to add a sources slide at the end. Please don’t disappoint him!”
Please don’t disappoint Kaya!
16. This is the epitome of #teacherproblems.
Even though I can technically take an hour for lunch, I still eat my whole lunch in 5 minutes because I’m so used to having to run and get things ready for the next lesson and pick my kids up on time. #teacherproblems

“If you didn’t eat fast, you didn’t eat!” — Ross Geller, as well as teachers everywhere during their lunch period.
17. Virtual teaching: Where time stands still.
Why in the virtual world does teaching one hour feel like 3 hours? People, the clock just plain stops. 🤣
— Ron Clark (@mrronclark_) April 27, 2020
We’ve all gone from “there’s not enough time in the day” to “there’s too much time in the day.”
18. Oh, the painful accuracy.
Diagram of an online staff meeting. 😅
— School Leaders Now (@SchoolLeadNow) April 26, 2020
The only thing missing is the time spent quieting the dog when a package arrives.
19. Math can’t get cancelled.
It seems like everything is getting cancelled, but do you know what doesn't cancel?
The a's in a/(a+b).
— Howie Hua (@howie_hua) March 18, 2020
Technically speaking, anyway.
20. Autocorrect says the darnedest things.
Just helped a student edit a paper. He referred to an actor as “gay old man.” I got up on my teacher high horse and took offense. Turns out autocorrect was to blame. He was writing about “Gary Oldman.” 😊#teacherproblems
— Fussy (@FussyFilm) April 29, 2020
Fun Fact: Gary Oldman is younger than Gary Numan.
21. We really do learn something new everyday.
so i just found out that sea turtles eat jellyfish as their primary diet and the chemicals in the jellyfish makes them high… so they are high all the time… which explains finding Nemo!! 😂😂😂

We just never thought it would be this.
