It’s hard to believe that a teacher can go through so many emotions in just one school day. It really can feel like you’ve run a marathon at the end! So, we decided to replicate a typical school day using some of the characters in the hilarious show – Schitt’s Creek! We hope it brings a smile to your face and reminds you that you are all amazing humans in our eyes!

When you find out admin is sending someone to cover your class, giving you some extra conference time! You literally can’t contain your excitement!

Time to Go Home!

As you close your classroom door for the day…
