This 9-Year-Old Hilariously Nails the Reality of Being a Teacher’s Kid

“I’m a teacher’s kid—of course I’m here early and stay late.”

Still images from teacher's kid TikTok

If you’re a seasoned TikToker, you’re well aware of the “of course” trend. “I work the night shift—of course I never know what day it is.” “We’re teachers—of course we’re trained to hold our bladders for eight hours a day.” “I’m an admin—of course I’m going to schedule a fire drill at the worst possible time.” One of our favorites in this trend? The teacher’s kid.

@l.neal is a TikTok creator, teacher, and mom to adorable Raegan—the star of this particular TikTok all about the perks and pitfalls of being a teacher’s kid.

Here’s the TikTok:

What we love about this teacher’s-kid TikTok:

  • Mrs. Neal puts her kid to work! It looks like Rae could probably teach a whole class if she needed to!
  • Raegan was clearly born to act. We love seeing kids do what they love and are good at—and parents who support it!
  • This TikTok’s follow-ups, including Part 2 (“I’m a teachers’ kid, of course the games on my iPad are educational.” LOL) and Part 3 (“I’m a teacher’s kid, of course I know the other teachers’ first names. Hi, Lori! Hi, Amanda!”).
