Sometimes the only way to cope with the crushing stress that comes with being a teacher is to laugh, and there’s no better time to do that than during Teacher Appreciation Week.

The week of recognition begins May 8 and includes a series of events and social media campaigns aimed at recognizing teachers’ often thankless work.

The National Education Association (NEA) is encouraging students to post photos of themselves with the hashtag #ThankATeacher and for all NEA members to wear red Wednesday in solidarity for those educators “fighting for school funding, professional pay, and better learning conditions for their students.” 

According to an infographic posted on the NEA website, teachers work more than 52 hours per week and earn $53,100 per year on average.

Teachers and assistants constitute roughly 3 million employees in the public sector in the U.S., the most of any public industry, according to May 2017 data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

If you’re a teacher and in need of a laugh or mental break, swipe through the gallery above for some memes.
