    23 Teacher Appreciation Tweets In Response To Schools Being Closed And Kids Being Quarantined At Home

    "Teachers are superheroes."

    With schools around the country closing due to the coronavirus, many kids are spending more time at home — and it's drawn all sorts of responses, from praise and appreciation for teachers, to parents expressing stress, and many finding humor in the situation.

    (Here are some educational resources for parents, kids, and/or teachers in need during quarantine.)

    1.

    a bunch of the “Teachers Dont Deserve $100K A Year” crowd who gotta stay home with their kids now and homeschool them are figuring out that teaching one or two kids is hard enough let alone 28 of them lol

    Parents finding out them teachers ain’t lying on them kids 💀

    3.

    Been homeschooling a 6-year old and 8-year old for one hour and 11 minutes. Teachers deserve to make a billion dollars a year. Or a week.

    4.

    At the end of the first day of my kids being out of school after our attempts at “homeschooling”... my conclusion... teachers are superheroes. The end.

    5.

    Me: *explains math problem* Tween: I don’t understand. Me: *explains the exact same way except more aggravated*

    6.

    No school, Day 1 7:15am: we have puzzles, activity books, stickers... we’ll get through this! 8:03am: *googles boarding schools with no coronavirus*

    7.

    I’ve homeschooled my kids for 1 day and I’ve already learned so much, like their teachers need a huge raise and also I should never ever be a teacher.

    8.

    Here is my toddler homeschooling schedule. Any questions? 8-10am: frozen 10-12pm: frozen 2 *lunch* 1-3: frozen 3-5:frozen 2 *dinner* 6-8pm: frozen *bed*

    Parents that have had no interaction with me for 7 months trying to email me after spending 11 minutes home with their kid

    PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHERS SHOULD BE IN THE 1% https://t.co/Qe8wDeYnyG

    Observations 2.5 hours into homeschooling 4 kids -teachers need to make more than professional athletes, CEO’s, and all of Hollywood combined -homeschooling will NOT be on our future plan after this is over -never too early for a drink

    12.

    [day 1 of covid homeschooling] me: alright, it says we have to do some- 8yo: *bursts into tears*

    13.

    If people didn’t already believe that teachers deserve raises, the next several weeks of folks homeschooling their kids are really about to prove it.

    14.

    Thank you for the online preschool learning resources but I am going to let Disney Plus take it from here.

    15.

    [home schooling, day 1] Me: I know this is hard. 12: Me: I know it’s frustrating. 12: Me: But we’ll get through it. 12: Me: Now explain this math to me just once more, I’m very close to understanding it.

    16.

    seeing a lot of tweets about how folks are newly appreciating teachers w/kids at home and well...I really hope you mean it. when I was a teacher never did I work so hard, stretch so much intellectually, emotionally, and physically. and never was I so regularly disrespected.

    I am 30 minutes into home schooling my 6 year old. I suggest that all school teachers are paid £1m per year from now on.

    18.

    I wonder how many parents homes schooling today still think teaching is an easy profession and teachers are overpaid? Keeping in mind teachers have 30 kids per class. Teachers may be getting some sweet notes or treats or maybe even some apologies in a few weeks. 😃

    19.

    Seeing parents on Facebook complain about their kids, and somewhere the teachers are like, "I told you so!"

    20.

    This pandemic has already revealed that: - schools are so much more than just schools. - many people now realize how tough it is to be a teacher and that teachers are grossly underpaid. - teachers are irreplaceable and essential to learning and education. #homeschooling

    22.

    KIDS: So what’s first on our homeschooling schedule? ME (pouring my first cup of coffee): Oh, we’re really doing that?

    23.

    My 5-year-old just now after we got done a work packet her teacher sent home: "O.K., that was phonics. Now, we have snack. And then we put our head down. And then we go get some more air." --The kids are going to get us through this.
