These 20 funny back to school quotes will get you belly laughin’. Ah back to school time! That time when even the most prepared and organised teachers get jitters, nervousness, anxiety and the whole works! Anyone else feel this way too? I’m sure I’m not the only one! 😉
Although you don’t wish this upon anyone at all, you truly do feel a LOT better knowing the rest of the teacher world is going through the same emotions as you.
And let’s be real, feeling like a part of a tribe is MUCH better than feeling like you’re alone right?
These funny back to school quotes and memes will show you some FUN and TRUE memes and quotes that almost every teacher feels during back to school time.
If you’re looking for motivational quotes and mindful coloring, I’ve got some of those here for you. They would make for a great back to school gift to a teacher friend too.
These are not created by myself (I wish I were that funny ;P), but I have searched and complied them from my fellow (more comedic) teacher blogging buddies. Read on for some laughs! 😉

Funny Back to School Quotes
This quote made from a user on Some Ecards had the right idea. Although we’re from Australia, so we will be counting down all the way to our summer Christmas break. Now that is a looong count down. 😉
Now this is one quote from Julie Faulkner’s Blog that can resonate with teachers across the globe! Australian teachers would be on their mid-semester break (which is winter break) and it is a 3 week one (although it definitely does go by ‘faster than Burt ina transam’). 😉
This one from The Educator’s Room is a classic. The expression on Jennifer Lawrence’s face just remarkably imitates a teacher’s expression on their first week (and sometimes month) back to school!
And of course, we can’t have a roundup of memes without including some from the ever so AWESOME Bored Teachers.
Firstly, who doesn’t love Matt Damon in the Martian! Absolute favourite of mine! I just have to say I shall NEVER look at a potato the same way again – LOL.
Ok, we really don’t need any words to describe this one from Middle School Mob! SO on point! 😉
We all LOVE PD of course – but do we really really need another one?? 😉 Had to include this one from the Pensive Sloth.
