The Back to School Blues – How Teacher’s Really Feel About the First Day of School

Source: MamaMia

It’s here, after the six weeks of relaxation and lie ins, it’s actually here. Although we haven’t had the sunniest of summers, the weeks of cancelling family BBQ’s or planning to sunbathe in that torrential British downpour we had to tolerate seems like a dream for what you’re about to endure. It’s back to school for teachers and teaching staff this week, and although it’s the same protocol every year, it doesn’t seem to get any less tedious. Teacherboards Community has created an all too relatable post for you to read and hopefully lift your spirits!

The Night Before:

So after the abundance of ‘back to school’ adverts that took over your television screen, you have been fully aware that the six week holidays are coming to an end. It’s now the night before and you’re trying to cram in all the relaxation rituals you can remember, but the screech of the school bell and the flashbacks of screaming children in the playground are dampening the vibe.
