But, if there is anyone that totally understands what teaching is like, it’s your fellow teaching besties. With that, we thought, “What better TV series to sum up just why our teaching buddies are the best than the much-adored 90s hit show – Friends?”

The FRIENDS Cast + Teaching Besties Unite

(1) They’ll Be There for You

They’ll show up with the ice cream when your day was a complete and total disaster… and they’ll say, “Their, There, They’re”.


(2) Grammar Nuts Reunite

If there is anyone else in the world that gets as worked up about the grammar in memes, Facebook posts, texts, or anything else that an adult who should know better has written, it’s your teaching besties!


(3) Your Cake Saver

It doesn’t matter if you’re stuck at recess duty. You know that your teaching buddies will make sure you don’t miss out on a piece of cake in the teachers’ lounge.


(4) They’ll Do Anything to Help

At the end of the year, when you need to move to yet ANOTHER classroom, they’ll be there for you!


(5) There’s Always the Organized One!

We’ve all got that teaching friend who is super organized and helps make sure we always get our grades in on time!


(6) They’ll be Your Cheer Squad

When you share a teaching win, you know that they’ll totally be your cheer squad and raise you up even higher!


(7) They’ll Pump You Up

On those mornings where you’re not really feeling it… or when you’ve totally got the “not another standardized test” blues, they’ll always be there to pump you up and get you through.


(8) They Won’t Lie

If they are totally freaking out, you can freak out together and not lie about how you are feeling.


(9) Pivot Buddies

They are there to discuss, work through, and give their opinion on different teaching strategies. They are the best professional development you could hope for as they understand the need to change direction if something isn’t working quite right.


(10) They Totally Get It

They know exactly what you want when you send a student on a ‘job’ to their class!
