So, Teacher Goals is a hub for educators that offers courses, books, podcasts, conferences, among many other things, including hosting an Instagram page dedicated to memes on all things teaching.

Bored Panda had a chat with founder and CEO of TeacherGoals, Brad Weinstein, who elaborated on what TeacherGoals is all about:

"TeacherGoals is an organization dedicated to helping educators through the good times and the hard times through inspiration, innovation, and some humor. We truly believe that sometimes we need to laugh so that we don't cry in such an important, but demanding profession."

100% true. Parents get mad at teachers for assigning their kids homework.

"TeacherGoals started out as a Twitter page back in 2014 when I wanted to create an account dedicated to making each day better for educators. I was a teacher at the time and experienced firsthand how frustrating being an educator can be and how educators also had little support," explained Brad.

So, Brad started posting inspirational content with the purpose of celebrating educators and the impact they had on students. This also served as a safe way for educators to vent their frustrations as teaching isn't the easiest of jobs.

"This is when I started posting humorous content that really connected with educators because of how relatable it was to their everyday jobs. Once I found the right combination of posting content that is funny, frustrating, and fantastic about teaching, the account started to grow at a quick rate.

Since then, Brad moved on to create a TeacherGoals account for Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and TikTok.

As of this article, the Instagram page boasts over 10,800 posts that have drawn in 225,000 followers, with the top posts racking up upwards of 250,000 likes, so you know this is the real deal. Among the sprinkles of website marketing material and some inspiration, the page consists mostly of some of the most spot-on memes about teachers.

Speaking of memes, there’s tons of them, and they seem to cover every corner of the educator profession.

Professional pains? You've got the pain of grading assignments, the pain of not being able to find a functional stapler, the pain of dealing with politicians' decisions regarding classroom sizes and other pressing issues, among many others.

But there’s also happiness to be found, like when you overhear someone say you’re their favorite teacher, or when you get a portrait of you some kid drew and you’re re-evaluating your life choices, and the joys of Spring Break.

When teachers write their own directions they need to be specific and detailed with their directions. This is an excellent example. If I was the parent of this child I would wonder why my child received red check marks for their creativity and brilliance.

Well, you've got the chapter on the explosion which leveled a city, the protest riots, a paragraph or two on murder hornets, fires, floods, and the *start* of war. They might mention some pneumonial infection at some point too if there's any space left.

Brad believes that memes are key in capturing the amazing things that educators do and also one of the best ways to vent frustrations.

"Memes are a quick, yet impactful way to see that educators around the world have so many things in common that they go through, no matter where they teach. Memes are also an escape where we can shut our brains off a little and consume content in a quick and easy format," said Brad.

For me it's the opposite... the class does what they want until the lesson is observed, then they immediately turn turn into perfect but silent/shy students.
