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."

"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.

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.

The are no 'bad kids'. Every behavior has a purpose. Kids want to do well and will if they can. -17 yrs in the OST field

I hear you, but sometimes you call a spade a spade. My sister-in-law worked in juvenile dentention for kids. Ones that burned their siblings, pets, raped, tortured a toddler... while their behavior may have a purpose, at what point are they "allowed " to be called "bad?" By your reasoning Hitler wouldn't be called "bad."

I'm unsure what this kid is trying to say. Maybe they think they are considered 'bad' so teachers have missed they are smart - this appears how most here in BP have taken it. However, having spent a lot of time in the last few years doing this 'I wish my teacher knew.... ' excersise I have different alarms going off because of context. This kid might be the victim of a bully who is smart enough to hide their behavior from the adults. When your bully is also the teachers pet what can you do? I suggest alternative this because is similar to ones which land in my 'wish my teacher knew' jar. The teacher will recognise handwriting and hopefully know.

The sad part is, the teacher does know how smart each student is. They just can't grade you on potential.

All you saying there are no bad kids, just horrible adults, needs to shut up. Unless you know every child and every adult in the world, you cannot say this. I have been in a couple classrooms where I've had a child that is a complete sociopath. Yes, there are horrible adults. However, there most certainly are horrible children. Children that think it's funny when they push another kid down or hurt them so badly that they're crying uncontrollably or even bleeding. Some children are beyond our help.

Many of the bad kids are bad because they are unchallenged and bored stiff.

Wondering Alice

Not in my experience these days. Teachers are way better than they used to be at differentiation. It's common for a range of challenging extensions as well as simplifed explanations to be avalible these days. Kids are 'bad' for a reason and checking they can access the lesson and are being challenged are the easiest - therefore first - checks done. Looking in to learning difficulties, cognitive differences, early trauma, domestic issues, bullying, abuse, neglect..... These take time ( and for many children, no where near enough is done) .

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.
