21 Reasons Why I Could Never, Ever Be A Teacher


1. Firstly, because they don't get paid nearly enough.

2. And they end up having to spend what they do earn on things that the school should really supply.

3. Then transport it all to class themselves.

4. They have to deal with seriously infuriating trends.

5. Not to mention irritating songs.

6. There are way too many *facepalm* moments.

7. And frustrating days like this.

8. It's damn exhausting, too.

9. And they don't really get a break at weekends.

10. Mainly thanks to the never-ending lesson plans.

11. And the principal doesn't always have their back.

They just pile the work on even higher.

12. Kids will try anything to avoid studying.

13. So the teachers always have to be on guard.

14. And kids can be downright abusive at times.

15. Some parents blame their failures on the teacher.

16. That's when they're not "helping" with their kids' homework, of course.

17. The risk of public embarrassment is too high.

18. They spend too much time dealing with bad behaviour.

19. Seriously, how do they cope with the distractions?

20. It must be stressful AF.

21. And TBH, I'm just not tough enough to do it.

So let's take time to thank all the teachers out there.
