A lot of kids think that the last day of school is all about them. What they probably fail to realize is that while they’ve spent the last several months lamenting the fact that they have to go to school, their teachers have been secretly lamenting the fact that that they have to go to work. Because while parents may be dreading summer, for teachers, this is the most magical time of year.
And as the last day of school approaches, teachers from all over the country took to social media to celebrate the end of another school year. Of course, teachers love their jobs but it’s an exhausting career and even the most dedicated educators are itching to get some time away from school. And with summer about to begin, teachers are taking to Twitter to share their happiness over the fact that the concept of ‘leisure time’ is suddenly a possibility for the first time since last summer.
Some teachers were excited to get the chance to kick back, relax, and enjoy a little bit of outside reading.
The Summer school break has begun and I get the chance to do one of my favourite things. Bliss! I am currently reading Amy Stuart’s STILL WATER which I am sure will be finished by the end of the day. #amreading #teacherlife #schoolisover #bookworm pic.twitter.com/cYg5z1qfv6

While others were just ready to get the hell out of their classroom for a couple of months.
End of the year!bye bye
At least one teacher was looking forward to the dope gifts they get from parents to thank them for putting up with their kids.
Parents who do this win. Bottles of wine are also very acceptable
To say teachers are excited for school to end is the understatement of the year.

A couple teachers were already in vacation mode.

Whatever they were looking forward to, teachers were in complete agreement about how excited they were to get a much-needed extended vacation.
