A Day in the Life of Teachers as Told by Cat GIFs

They get us, they REALLY get us!

Happy National Cat Day

National Cat Day is October 29, so let’s celebrate with cat GIFs! 

Cats can be finicky, funny, and ferocious, all within a few minutes. And when you take a closer look, teaching life can be quite similar! 

So, in honor of National Cat Day, we proudly present the day in the life of teachers as told through the best cat GIFs we could find!

1. When the alarm goes off …day in life of teacher - cat gif

All the coffee in the world couldn’t prepare you to “adult” today!

2. When you’re late for work and you try to sneak in …

You don’t want to draw any attention to yourself. You also use this move when you’re trying to head out for the day without anyone seeing you.

 

3. When your coffee kicks in and you’re ready to take on anything …

Ahhh, the students are in a lab. You’re just gonna put your feet up, and no one will ever know.

8. When your precious alone time gets interrupted …

It’s been scheduled for weeks! You gave out your cell phone number just for this reason!

Even if it’s just for 10 seconds in the hall—all is right in the world!

13. When you get called for a last-minute meeting …

14. When you feel like admin are being a bit patronizing …

You just want to be treated like an adult. Is that too much to ask?

You have exactly eight minutes to bang out evaluations, lesson plans, and letters.
