5 Signs You Might Be An English Teacher

Towards the end of the school year (the schools going the latest are ending right around now), we try to share a few more fun, lighthearted things than we usually do. May and June are generally pretty crazy with end of the year wrap ups for every type of activity, and the commencement of new and different summer activities. So today, we’re sharing a just-for-fun graphic. If you’re an English teacher, you’ll probably easily identify with many of these. If you’re not, share this with your English teacher friends and colleagues. Do you know of any other telltale signs that you might be an English teacher? Share with us by leaving a comment below, mentioning @Edudemic on Twitter or leaving your thoughts on our Facebook page.

5 Signs You Might Be An English Teacher

  1. Translating Shakespearean language excites you
  2. In middle school, friends stopped passing you notes because you corrected their usage of “your” and “you’re” in red ink
  3. You keep a written record of your DVD collection organized in MLA format
  4. You judge a person based on their ability to use a semicolon
  5. Everyone in your family knows the difference between “lay”and “lie” and you take full credit for that.

    You might be an English teacher if you won’t share even the cutest memes if they aren’t punctuated correctly.
