The Life of a Remote Teacher: As Told By Funny Dog GIFs

It seems like years ago that we teachers were pulling into our schools’ parking lots, walking into our home away from home, and seeing our precious students. Now remote learning has become the new norm, from hosting “live” learning sessions to learning new tech tools in a matter of minutes. Here is the life of a remote teacher, as told by adorable dog GIFs.

2. When your alarm wakes you up and you really don’t want to get out of your warm, comfy bed…

3. When your own kids have been locked inside for too long and are now completely addicted to TikTok…

4. When they finally let you back in your classroom and you get to hug all your students…
