17 Things Teachers Wish People Understood About Teaching


Recently, Indiana teacher Chasten Buttigieg reached out to fellow educators on Twitter to see what they wished other people understood about the teaching profession. The tweet resonated with our WeAreTeachers readers and followers as they shared the truth about teaching in 2019.

Here’s what they had to say:

1. Building relationships is the top priority sometimes.

And learning has to come second.

2. We DON’T have summers off.

Just because we’re not in the classroom doesn’t mean we’re not working.

3. We are emotionally invested in each and every student.

4. Teaching is nonstop.

5. Testing takes a toll on teachers and students alike.

6. We’re ALWAYS thinking about our students.

7. Teaching is NOT babysitting.

And people who think that need to spend some time in a classroom.

8. We deserve to be treated as trained professionals.

9. We LITERALLY lose sleep worrying over students.

10. We don’t teach for the money or the praise.

11. We hardly even get any chance to use the bathroom during the day.

Teachers joke about it on social media, but it’s true.

12. We put endless hours into our work.

13. We are under pressure from EVERYONE to do our jobs.

SO. MANY. STAKEHOLDERS.

14. Teaching requires a enormous range of skills.

15. There is SO MUCH paperwork.

16. Life at home plays a huge part in student success.

And so many of our students are dealing with childhood trauma, too.

17. Once you’re our student, you’re always our student.

The teacher-student bond lasts way beyond graduation.
