School’s out, and summer break is finally here!
There’s nothing better than being a kid and realizing that you have at least two whole months of freedom from teachers, tests, and homework.
But the students aren’t the only ones celebrating.
Teachers finally get some time off, too! And they absolutely deserve it.
Here are some tweets from teachers who are ready to finally enjoy some time at home.
As soon as the final bell rings, it’s time to run.
Come on. You can definitely get to the front doors faster than the kids.
What a relief!
The last day of school is always the longest somehow.
But that makes it even sweeter when you can finally leave.
A new holiday!
The best part of Teachers’ New Year is you don’t have to try to stay up until midnight.
But if you do choose to stay up late, it’s not because you’re grading papers!
It’s time for the beach! And wine! And drinking wine at the beach!
The GIF in this next tweet is so, so accurate.
As soon as the last student leaves the classroom, teachers all get together and do this little dance.
That’s a fact.
As soon as you pull into the parking lot on the last day of school, you can’t help but dance a little bit with excitement.
Maybe you even crank your music for a second.
This is the face of someone who has spent the last nine months teaching students everything from multiplication tables to how to be a decent human being…and is finally ready for a break.
Greatest job ever.
Yes, teaching is one of the most admirable professions around and you cannot overstate how special it is to be in these kids’ lives.
But also…summer vacation. I mean, come on. That’s obviously a perk.
Goodbye, alarm clock!
You’ve spent the rest of the year waking up at the crack of dawn! You’ve earned some sleep-in time.
The teachers in this next tweet are definitely doing it right.
What a great idea!
You don’t even have to go all the way home to enjoy your newfound freedom.
The parking lot will do just fine.
What day is it?
Many teachers start every day by writing the day’s date on the whiteboard for their students to see.
But during summer break, the only thing that matters is that it’s a day off.
Hooray for naptime!
You can take a nap right after breakfast if you want to
And don’t stop there! Take another one right after lunch!
I’m sensing a theme, here.
During the school year, “happy hour” probably refers to your planning period.
Now, it takes on a whole new meaning.
Don’t fall into this trap!
Of course, most teachers won’t be able to resist ducking into the dollar store at some point during their summer vacation “just to see.”
This next tweet is just too perfect.
Grab your teacher buddy!
You know you have a teacher friend for life when they’re willing to learn last-day-of-school choreography with you.
Then again, most teachers probably feel like dancing on the last day of school.
Time to read for fun!
Forget the textbooks and PD articles.
It’s time to go the library and get books you actually want to read.
Watch out for these dreams!
At least you can wake up from a nightmare like this and realize it’s not really happening.
Hold onto that summer vacation relaxation for as long as you can!
The date? Who cares?
Yep, this is classic teacher-on-break behavior.
Knowing the date is for people who have to be at work all day.
Work hard, play hard.
“You’ve just finished another school year! What are you gonna do?”
“I’m going to Disney World!!!!!”
This next summer vacation perk is one I wouldn’t have thought of at first.
You also don’t have to worry about having coffee breath for the rest of the day.
And speaking of coffee, there’s no danger of walking into the lounge and finding the carafe empty.
Good luck, parents.
You know those students who manage to grind your gears every single day?
And you love them, but you also aren’t really sure whether you can stand one more day with them in your classroom?
Yeah. They’re at home now.
Big plans for the day?
Make sure you reserve the TV for the first day of the next school year, too.
Might as well make that day a little easier too, right?
What do you mean?
Wait a couple of days after school lets out and you’ll feel as young as you did for your first year of teaching.
The beginning of your first year of teaching, that is.
What are we gonna do?
Keeping kids entertained for several hours at a time is a truly daunting task. Imagine if that were your job.
This next tweet reveals one of the cons of summer break.
Say goodbye to that immune system of steel you’ve built up over the past nine months.
Welcome back to the land of the people who get sick every once in awhile.
If you listen closely, you can hear the song “Born Free” playing in the hearts and minds of every teacher who still has a few days of work to do before truly taking a break.
These are excellent perks.
Not only do you get a summer break, but if you’re a teacher, you also get presents at the end of the year!
Let’s hope the parents thought to send some wine!
The perfect summer vaca anthem.
If you’re not listening to this Alice Cooper song as you pack up your classroom, what are you even doing?
Do we need to take you back to teacher school?
See ya in August, suckers!
Do not try to contact me before then.
This next tweet gives you info on what to expect as summer vacation continues.
Remember all those mornings you left for work and gazed longingly at your patio furniture as you pulled out of the driveway?
Those days are over, my friend!
Here’s a good way to spend your time.
Summer vacation is the best time to finally binge listen to that podcast you’ve been trying to hear for the past six months.
Finally, no staff meetings to interrupt your precious listening time!
You can even nerd out in peace!
As long as you’re reading these Shakespeare folios for your own pleasure and not taking pictures to show your students next year.
You can go to the bathroom whenever you want!
People who work in a typical office environment don’t realize how good they have it.
They can just get up and walk out to the restroom at any time of the day!
Look at all the freedom we have.
Hey, if you want to gaze into the horizon with an inflatable shark, don’t let me be the one to stop you.
You’re a teacher on summer vacation. You’re unstoppable.
The teachers in this next tweet had the best idea for the last day of school.
I scream, you scream…
These teachers got ice cream!
As if it wasn’t already the best day ever.
Use those emojis!
Use all the emojis!
The kids can’t stop you now!
Sure, there’s a bit of work to do.
You never realize how many trips you’ve taken to the dollar store and Michael’s until you have to pack everything up.
I don’t care what day it is!
The only that matters is that it’s a day that you don’t have to go work.
Beyond that, it’s…someday.
Enjoy your break, teachers!
You’ve definitely earned it!
Share these tweets with a teacher in your life!
