How many more days of school do you have left until winter break? I bet you can tell us the EXACT answer down to the minute, and we don’t blame you. Teaching in December can be a slog, or a frenzy … a frenzied slog? We’ll go with it. To help get you through to your much-deserved break, we put together a list of some of our favorite winter break memes. Enjoy!
1. It’s the bottle of wine for me
I’ll take the dark chocolate, too.
2. Embrace the caffeine
Sometimes it’s the only way to power through.
3. The drink of your choice will be waiting for you
And a gift from parents is always welcome!
4. No possibility of taking a day off
Break cannot come soon enough.
5. Honestly, my brain is already checked out
We can make it through.
6. What stage are you in?
I’m feeling no. 5 today.
7. Straight to the naughty list
I’m calling Santa.
8. Hang in there!
Break is in sight, even when it feels like you still have miles to go.
9. Countdowns help
Your students will likely join you in the fun!

You’re going to need them.

Craftivities can have their place.
13. Keep your priorities straight
Carbs, sweet carbs!

Teachers make EVERYTHING happen. Never forget it.
16. Try to be patient
We know, we know. It’s not fair!
17. And keep in mind, this too shall pass
These kids won’t be hyped up on sugar and holiday craziness ALL year long.

We wish more people knew this.

TGIF, but for real.

You definitely want to make it home in one piece.

Because you deserve it!

Waiving the white flag.
