Things You Should Never Ever Say to a Teacher (With 18 Interpretive GIFs!)

By The Room 241 Team January 4, 2019

Teachers work hard, putting in tons of hours both at school and at home. They use their own money for supplies. They decorate classrooms to create beautiful learning environments. They create lessons, projects, and units that have to factor in an ever-changing landscape of “musts.” They have endless meetings and responsibilities on top of their classes. And somehow, they manage to do it all despite challenging attitudes, moments of push-back, and seemingly insurmountable obstacles. So here’s a list of things that should never ever be said to a teacher.

“We’re going on vacation, so are you teaching anything important?”

“You get sick a lot. You should take better care of yourself.”

via GIPHY

“My kid gets bored, so you need to make class entertaining for him.”

via GIPHY

“Teachers’ salaries should be based on test scores because that shows if they’re a good teacher or not.”

via GIPHY

“You’re a teacher? How cute.”

via GIPHY

“Half a day and ten months a year? Teachers basically work part-time.”

via GIPHY

“I went to school, so I’m pretty sure I could teach.”

via GIPHY

“They should make all schools year-round with a few more hours a day.”

via GIPHY

“I pay taxes, so you basically work for me.”

via GIPHY

“My kid is very stressed out with all of his extracurriculars, so he won’t be able to do homework for the rest of the year.”

via GIPHY

“You don’t have kids, so you wouldn’t understand.”

via GIPHY

“Why are you so tired? You get done at three o’clock.”

“I emailed you an hour ago. Why haven’t you responded?”

via GIPHY

“Does this assignment count?”

via GIPHY

“What’s the point of learning this stuff now when we can just Google it?”

via GIPHY

“So were you alive during World War II?”

via GIPHY

“Can’t you just tell us what the answer is?”
