We all know the joy of a successful day in the classroom. We walk out feeling energized, inspired, and ready to take on more.
But did you ever think that simply watching videos of other teachers’ routines could create a similar feeling? It may sound unbelievable, but I find this phenomenon is totally real. For some reason, there is something incredibly soothing about watching other teachers in action.
Is it the satisfying metallic slice of a paper cutter that transports us to a planning period where you actually get to plan?
Is it watching a perfect stack of copies line up knowing you won’t have to fix a jam?
Is it knowing that somewhere, in some universe, there’s a teacher whose morning did not include trapping a roach under a Solo cup?
Whether it’s the clink of a coffee tumbler on a desk or the shuffle of construction paper, these teachers have totally inspired us to romanticize our teaching lives. Check out these soothing teacher TikToks to see what we’re talking about.
