Teachers Trying to Make it to the End of the Year: As Told by The Circle Players


Teachers Trying to Make it to the End of the Year: As Told by The Circle Players

ALERT: Time to vote on the best and worst parts of the end of the school year!

The popular Netflix reality competition series, The Circle, is a dramatic battle to the finish line between multiple contestants just trying to survive the madness. The end of the school year for teachers can often be described in a similar fashion. This school year even more than others has almost felt like a reality game show at times, where the rules are always changing, obstacles are constantly being thrown at you, and every day is a new challenge. If only we had a chance to win $100,000 at the end, that’d be nice!

Whether you’ve watched the show or not, if you’re a teacher struggling to the finish line we call summer break, you can definitely relate to these end-of-the-year feels, as told by the contestants on The Circle.

2. When a first-year teacher comes to you at the end of the year saying they don’t know why they got into teaching…

3. When you look at the calendar and there are only 2 Mondays left in the school year…
