Teaching can be a tough gig, but almost any day brings at least a laugh or two. These funny teacher videos capture what it’s like to teach these days. Take a break and have a laugh!

2. Hilarious Teacher Technology in the Classroom
Devin Siebold makes some of our favorite funny teacher videos, because he definitely knows what it’s like trying to teach in the 21st century. This one features all the “useful” technology you’ll find in today’s classrooms.
3. If We Treated Teachers Like Pro Athletes
If you dream of a world where teachers are the millionaire superstars, this is the video for you!
4. All of Us (Teacher Parody)
“How many times do I have to tell you when you’re crying, your homework’s still due?” These teachers love their students, their quirks, and all their questions, even their pointless interjections!
5. Erducator Behavior Reward System
Gerry Brooks is another one of those folks who make a lot of funny teacher videos. As a principal, he really hits it on the head with this “teacher rewards system.”

8. If We Replaced Teachers With Just Anyone
This video is for anyone who thinks teaching is a job that pretty much anyone can do. Now we know why “worked at Arby’s” isn’t usually considered teacher training.
9. Preschool Teachers Play Never Have I Ever
Pre-K teachers, this one is for you! (Although frankly, most teachers have probably been called “mom” or “dad” once or twice.)

Language changes over time, and these days it seems to change faster than ever! Can these teachers keep up with the latest teen slang, like “clout demon” and “glow-up”?

This SNL skit featuring Lin-Manuel Miranda has become a classic. The movies want you to believe any sub can become an inspirational success, but students are totally onto their tricks. (Enough with the hip-hop!)
12. New Teachers vs. Veteran Teachers
Don’t get us wrong: teachers never stop caring about the important things. But they definitely become a lot more chill about the small stuff (like wearing lipstick every day) over time.
13. Preschool Teachers Share Darndest Things Kids Have Said
Out of the mouths of babes, as they say. Kids are brutally honest—and often absolutely hilarious.
14. Kindergarten Lunch Duty
Oh, Lunchables. Why do you have to have so many separate items that kids need help opening?

Nothing gives you a good stretch like turning around to catch whoever is talking while you’re writing on the whiteboard!

Sometimes, teachers just want to have fun! April Fool’s Day is a terrific time for teacher pranks, like this fake spelling test one teacher used to completely stump his students.
18. Teachers’ Day Song by Jimmy Fallon
Teachers shouldn’t have to pay their taxes, and at Chipotle they should always get free guac. Jimmy knows what teachers deserve! (Plus, check out this teacher’s heartfelt response.)
