My mom is a teacher and the stories she’s told about trying to navigate that job in 2020 have made me very glad I did not follow in the footsteps of the family profession.

Still, I can’t help but admire all the teachers AND students out there on Zoom and what not just trying to make it work, trying to keep the education train chugging through thick and thin.

And I’m especially grateful to everyone who took all the funniest moments from these endeavors and shared them with us on the internet.

Like these ones!

I think 90% of school now is just kids showing each other their pets.

1. No peeking

We all now know what each others’ bedrooms look like and that’s just weird.

Here’s hoping that somehow, somewhere in the midst of all that, we’re still actually learning things.

What’s your 2020 experience been like?
