2020 was about as chaotic as it could have been for teachers and students, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Towards the end of spring/beginning of summer 2021, it seemed like things were returning back to normal. Most schools began reopening in person, while others fully committed to online learning after going through the "teething phases" of completing everything via Zoom.
Luckily, everything seems to be going well; vaccinations are available for everyone, and the daily average of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations continues to decrease. Therefore, the 2022 school year will be as normal as possible.
With that said, here are 20 of the best back-to-school tweets to commemorate the season!
If the first item on your to-do list is to make a to-do list, and you didn't even get to that, you know things are out of control. This poor teacher is not alone in being overwhelmed and stressed out. Maybe there's some consolation in that fact.
The uphill battle in trying to get ready, especially after COVID-19 is a very real struggle that makes you wish you were an octopus sometimes. Or maybe a sad shadow person who is the embodiment of despair.
Sometimes you just feel like a frumpy chunky baby seal when you think about having to go back to school. And other times you just feel like you're going to be economically exploited.
Still sleeping in to combat overcome the stress of the pandemic? Yeah. Even if your kids are going to school in person or from home, or hybrid, it's going to be a lot to deal with.
And even if you are out of school, the trauma of that dread of having to return can really weigh you down. But if you are returning to the halls, maybe taking an aggressively fun stance on the entire ordeal will make your time there much much better.
Some parents remain overly cautious in sending their children back to school.
Also, for parents who are getting their kids new school supplies, please look at the meme below and plan accordingly.
"Hello darkness my old friend..."
And if you're paying money to go to a school "just to get a degree" and hope that a sheet of paper saying you're certified is enough to get you a job (it isn't) then spend more money by paying someone to do the assignments that are supposed to make said sheet of paper worth something.
And in case going back to school in 2022 is a huge pain in the butt, then remember that it can't possibly be worse than 2020.
I believe the word you're looking for is, "Yikes."
It's too true. How did we expect kids to return to learning, whether online or in person, when the rest of the world was a disaster zone. Kids are perceptive, but we somehow managed to persevere. Ahh humanity.
This is too funny.
Sometimes, no matter how weird and different school is, kids and still kids and they're little stinkers. I would be a terrible teacher because I would probably burst into tears and yell, "I'm doing the best that I can!" if a child asked me this three weeks into classes.
