Now, I don’t want to alarm you…but in case you hadn’t noticed, it’s already the end of July. That’s right, teachers! Chances are you are well and truly through the Independence Day festivities, and getting ready to get back in a ‘school’ frame of mind.

If you’re anything like me when I was teaching, the end of July is the time when you start to get a little bit excited and jittery at the thought of a new school year.

Teachers are looking forward to new students, newfamilies, and possibly even a new grade. Classrooms are getting revamped, and planning meetings are in full swing. Are you ready for it??

If your brain is still needing a bit of a boost,give it a kick start with these hilarious memes, chosen by teachers for teachers!

We all have to do it at some point. In my seven years of teaching, I only had the same classroom twice. I was the declutter queen!

Think of the upside – it’s time for a fresh start! Especially if you have a new set of students.
