9 Reasons Why Teachers Love Virtual Learning


We’ve all been thrown into the high-stress situation of having to teach our students virtually.  To lighten the mood and put a smile on your face, we have come up with some funny reasons why we love virtual learning.

#1 — Audio Only is Wonderful

This way we can teach in our pajamas without having to do our hair or make-up. 😉

 #2 — The Mute Button is Your BEST FRIEND!

 I wish we had a button like this in the classroom!

And it is wonderful to use when I have to take a minute to yell at my own kids while teaching my class. LOL

#3 — We Get to Tour All of Our Student’s Homes

Most days, I feel like I’m on a roller coaster ride zooming from room to room.

 #4 — Our Co-Workers Make it Hard to Work

They crawl into our laps, bark when we are teaching, or want to go outside as soon as we sit down.

#5 — Every Class Meeting is Show and Tell

How many times have we seen our students’ pets, toys, etc. during our classes?!

#6 — Each Day Still Brings Something Different

Every day is still a barrel of laughs, even when we aren’t in the classroom.  I’m sure that we have all experienced many of these images during our class meetings. 😉

#7 — Class Meetings Look Like Members of the Brady Bunch

#8 — We Only Clean One Room in the House to Zoom

People will only see the one room you Zoom in right now… Thank Goodness!!

#9 — We Can Shop on Amazon During Staff Meetings 🙂
