Teaching and Stranger Things have much in common. Just like the search for Will Byers who goes missing in some mysterious world, teachers often have to find kids who said they just “needed to go to the bathroom”, over 20 minutes ago. And, there’s at least one kid in every class who stares at you like they're trying to set you on fire with their mind…

There are common occurrences in the day of a teacher that are defined perfectly from the antics of Stranger Things characters. Check out these moments that personify our own version of the crazy, ’Upside Down’ world we call teaching.

4. When you try to warn your teacher friends that admin is coming to do observations…

5. When you try to help the new teacher learn to not care about the little things that don’t matter…

6. When you and your teacher BFF find the leftover snacks from parent night…

7. When ‘that’ teacher is telling you another story but you have thousands of other things you could be doing…
