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 have a little corner of the web with some end-of-the-year teacher memes. So sit back and enjoy…but try not to sip any liquids for the next 60 seconds! Here are 22 Relatable End of the Year Memes!
End of the Year Memes: Students Teach Yourselves
1–It’s great to see your teaching style in your students. Students know the drill by now and can practically teach themselves, right? If only, because I am tired!
2–It is May: when students can take control of their learning, and we can push them so much further this time of year!
End of the Year Memes: Emotions and Behaviors
3–Something is in the air in May–smells like summer break is approaching. My students seem to have forgotten all of the prior skills we practiced. ALL. YEAR. LONG.
4–I love my students and my class. I do! But I am giddy with visions of warm weather and no kids!
End of the Year Memes: We are Exhausted! 💤💤💤
5–Although we are trying to hold it together, this is exceptionally accurate for most of us. We are worn down and worn out!
6–There truly is no tired like end-of-year teacher tired! I can feel tired down to my bones!
7–2022 has beaten out 2020 and 2021 as the longest year yet! We are survivors! We made it through the last quarter, the previous month, and the last week of the 2021-2022 school year!
8–This year, for me, the perpetual tiredness started in April. I am super tired, and it is time to go home.
Are We There Yet? More End of the Year Teacher Memes
9–Another one for the books! Woo–hoo! We survived, but we just want to sleep!
10–Oh, but wait…we have to pack up our classroom! This process can be overwhelming! And really, who wants to do this at the end of a long year.
11–It’s such a bittersweet feeling. My students and co-workers are the best! I genuinely do have a classroom family and a school family. Each year it is a little sad. Good thing we can see all of those faces when we run into any store for the entire summer!
BONUS MEME: If you spend any time this summer planning, you are definitely going to want to RUN, NOT WALK to join our Premium Membership, your one-stop site to gather everything you need in resources for NEXT YEAR!
12–After the students leave, I can’t run into the parking lot fast enough!!! There is no time for chitchat and promises of meeting up over the summer. I am done!
Home at Last!
13–Now, I have no children at home, and bless you if you do! I am taking full advantage of my empty nest. Don’t even come a calling to my house as there will be no pants worn!
14–We can use the restroom, eat, and work out when we want (unless we have our own kiddos at our home)! You know… usual human stuff.
15–Sleep, Netflix, eat, repeat!
You Must Be Joking Right Now!
16–If I had a nickel for every time I have heard this statement, I would have a more significant retirement account! They don’t see the summer school, training, unit planning, and meetings we attend.
17–I am a fan of lifelong learning for teachers but do not, like really do not, have us attend training that we have already participated in every summer.
18–After stating the date with my students every day, it is always funny that I am lucky to know the day of the week in the summer! Seriously, the only month we need to know is August…and possibly July for some.
19–Under the category of there ought to be a law: there is NOTHING worse than someone sending an email about next year the day after school gets out.
Accurate End of the Year Teacher Memes
20–We have given accurate depictions of the students all year long, only to hear, “My kid doesn’t do that at home!” Hmm, apology accepted!
21–Tag, you’re it! Your child talks non-stop and has a limited attention span. Yes, you are having long days and nights. But, phew, we are so happy it is your turn.
22–To me, Walmart’s aisles have back-to-school items way too early. Please let us enjoy the notion of being home before we become inundated with school items everywhere!
So, I lie—a little. I teach the whole year with only small breaks at the beginning and end of the summer. But I can relate to each of these end-of-the-year teacher memes as those breaks are welcomed. But, I am a planner. And I am already planning for the next school year! Does anyone else already have a foot into next year?
If so, hear me out! Check out our Premium Membership today! For only a small monthly or annual charge, which you can quit at any time, you can get countless resources from ETTC. I am planning on checking out some items weekly and getting those downloads!
