When You’re a Teacher…

Taking a day off means not working on a Saturday.

Version 2


You see words misspelled so many times, they start to look correct.

Version 4


You even grade papers in your sleep.

Version 3


Eventually all free food starts to look good.

Parent conferences can happen anywhere.



Have a great day, teachers!

  1. Hi Carie,

    I really enjoyed your latest blog, especially the cute illustrations.

    Is that your artwork? You are so multitalented! I can sure relate

    to those years when I was an elementary grades teacher. Glad you

    are enjoying your own days back in the classroom. Lucky students!!

  2. I am dying. The illustrations are fantastic! My favorites arethe bleary-eyed teacher at 5PM considering the old pizza slice and the parent conference at the wine shelf. 🙂 I’m glad you’re embracing *all* the aspects of teaching again. You are a strong, driven individual, Carie, and I admire you. ❤
