#WelcomeToMySchoolWhere We Pick Our 15 Favorite Tweets Now Trending


Without a little fun in one’s life, the school days can get boring. Constantly taxing yourself to perform and learn new concepts and information does have its breaking point, and while we wouldn’t suggest that you violate any school rules and risk getting into trouble, it never hurts to let off some steam. That’s why we’ve gone through the #WelcomeToMySchoolWhere tweets now trending and picked our favorites.

NOTE: We decided to keep these PG-rated. There are many more, some funny and some not, that definitely push the boundaries. Check it out on Twitter by typing in the hashtag. (After you read our article, of course!)

Why We Like It: How many times have you been stuck in an English class on those days when you’ve got to read some really challenging material, and the guy (or girl) who takes three seconds to say the word “the” raises their hand to guide you? Shame on the teacher for picking them, but when no one else is volunteering, they may not have another choice.

Why We Like It: Class read-along activities may be the most arduous of the learning process. Inevitably, only three students in a class of 30 will be following along, and as a result, it’s either let the same three people read the entire text, stop the flow of the story every three paragraphs, or let the one who can’t read take over and close the whole thing down.

Why We Like It: This is a great example of how a company that has nothing to do with education can get in on the mix. TV Land has paid the bills for years by airing reruns of classic television, and Golden Girls is one of those rare shows that can appeal to multiple generations. Add in the fact this tweet promotes a strong pro-education message, and it’s hard for the gang at 4tests not to recommend. This episode really does have a solid message. It’s never too late to get your life on the right path and make something special of yourself.

Why We Like It: How many of you out there in college or high school have instructors, who try too hard to be cool? While Nickelodeon may not always be slice-of-life stuff, they hit the nail on the head with this one.

Why We Like It: As an adult, I’ve found my groove working from about 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and then 10:30 p.m. to 3 a.m. every night. I’m just more productive when I sleep in and work late. Schools, however, have tried to make the education system work on an 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. schedule, requiring students and teachers to be up as early as 5 or 6 in the morning in order to be ready for the day. Believe me, I empathize with your desire to show up dressed in a hoodie with your hair full of cowlicks. That’s what fuels the homeless look, and if that’s you, then more power to ya.

Why We Like It: Okay, we said “PG-rated,” and this is what earns us the rating. But we call attention to this tweet not to put your mind in the gutter or make a sex joke. Nope, it’s just great satire, and it lampoons our weakness for majoring in minors and minoring in majors.

Why We Like It: When I taught school, it seemed like someone was breaking in every five minutes with an announcement interrupting the flow of class over things like track meets, lunch menus, and school assemblies. The statement here may not be completely accurate, but campus events and all the attention schools give to them have an ancillary loss of time that’s hard to measure and that does affect teaching. Good job to Dreidel_Spinner for pointing that out!

Why We Like It: Yes, schools have a tendency to feed students like they’re all experiencing pregnancy cravings. The Pizza Hut pizza / baked potato mix is a classic.

Why We Like It: Teachers everywhere have a desk drawer full of cell phones that are not their own to attest to this fact. Technology abuse is rampant with constant texting and Tweeting and Facebooking in class. That genie’s out of the bottle, and he isn’t going back in.

Why We Like It: I shudder to think what mine was. Some things it’s better just not to know, you know?

Why We Like It: How upbeat. How optimistic. How rare. We realize this is probably true for a small number of schools, but for those who can find the balance, we salute you.

Why We Like It: Today marks the sixth anniversary of the Virginia Tech shootings that claimed the lives of 32 people and wounded many others. The gunman eventually committed suicide before he could be apprehended by police. This tweet is a somber and poignant reminder of the dangers that still exist in our world, especially in the wake of Newtown. However, it’s also exemplary of the human spirit and our ability to overcome. Thank you, Morgan Pruett.

Why We Like It: Not even going to try acting like we know what this means. We picked it because it has just the right amount of wacky imagery, and it reminds us of some of our own lingo when we were younger.

Why We Like It: What a positive, happy environment in which to learn. For any of you that have schools you’re proud of, this one’s for you!

Why We Like It: Don’t feel bad, kids. Some of your teachers probably think it, too.
