17 Totally Relatable “Distance Learning” Memes


Who is ready for some “Distance Learning Memes”?!  It’s finally that time, teachers!  Late nights, chaos, and bittersweet emotions bring out some of the best (and funniest) memes that lighten up the mood, and give us a little chuckle.  I thought it would be fun to celebrate with some teacher memes – distance learning style.  So sit back and enjoy!


#1 – The MUTE button!

Need I say more?!  So wish I could bring this button back into the classroom with me!


#2 – Casual Friday Everyday

Next year, casual day stickers and jean Fridays will have lost their “special” effect.


#3 – Late Night Emails and Messages

Teachers please take back your evenings and weekends!

Save yourself countless hours on nights and weekends with our NO PREP PHONICS BOOKLETS. Add these to your phonics curriculum! Just print, copy, and fold!

#4 – Brady Bunch Meetings

Every time I sit in a staff meeting, the song pops into my head… LOL


#5 – Assignments?  Still Waiting…

Office Space boss asking for homework to be turned in

Love how my students are creating Tik-Tok videos daily, but I’m still waiting on homework…


#6 – Multi-Tasking… Ugh!

Yeah… right!!


#7 – The Wait!

Bueller… Bueller…


Give your students and you something to do while kiddos are logging into your class meetings with our NO PREP Morning Meeting Slides.

#8 – Closing Up Empty Classrooms

quote telling teachers that the end of the year classroom clean-up will be different this time

Regardless of the date, it was very eerie walking into an empty classroom that had been frozen in time.  I missed my students helping me pack up and the fun we would have had the last few weeks of school.


#9 – Parades

Instead of classroom parties, we decorated our cars and waved from the streets as students drove by.


#10 – Parent-Free Classrooms

I am ready to just have my students in class again… LOL


#11 – Technology

I am soooo ready to slam that laptop lid and lock it up for the summer! LOL


#12 – House Tours and Show-n-Tell

I feel like I’ve toured so many houses, and I didn’t even have a realtor! LOL


#13 – Our Pets Are Happy

happy dog because the school year is over

They’ve been patiently waiting to have our full undivided attention.


#14 – Bittersweet Student Farewells

teacher note saying how proud they are of their students at the end of the school year

Waving from a car, or saying goodbye during a Zoom call just isn’t the same as giving that final hug… 🙁


Capture your students memories in this End of the Year Memory Book. Best part, you can digitally email it to your families once its completed.


#15 – The End of This School Year is FINALLY Here!

Teaching is hard…we get it.  But Distance Learning is way more than we expected.  And there’s no tired like it.

#16 – The End of This School Year is FINALLY Here!

Sound of Music meme stating that teachers can now be human again during the summer

This year especially, please take some time to unwind from distance learning.  We’ve worked outside our comfort zone, teaching in unthinkable ways for the past few months.  Take some time to do something special for yourself.

#17 – The End of This School Year is FINALLY Here!

sarcastic smile because someone is saying that teachers are lucky to only have to work 9 months a year

When distance learning is finally over, we know we are going to take some time for ourselves.  But once we feel rested, we will pick up the pieces and start preparing for what comes next.  It’s just what teachers do…and that’s a full time job.  We hope that you have found a little humor in these Distance Learning Memes only Teachers will Understand.
