You may think you have nothing in common with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, but  you actually have more in common than you think. In light of this weekend's new Infinity War premier, here's a look at the life of a teacher, as told by The Avengers.

1. When you get a new batch of students at the beginning of the year.

Even if it takes a while, you know you’ll be able to whip ‘em into shape.

2. When your coffee addiction becomes real.

Did you even really like coffee before you started teaching?

3. When a student won’t stop talking…

Even after you already asked twice.

4. Monday

‘Nuff said.

5. When the administration sends out a “policy” email.

6. When a student finally gets something you’ve been teaching.

You’ve only spent the last three days on this concept, but hey, at least they finally got it. There is not greater joy than what you experience at that moment.

7. When you see old students.

They grow so fast. And you may be shrinking, just a bit. 

8. Explaining what teaching is really like to new teachers.

Nothing in your teacher preparation program could ever prepare you for real life in a school. 

9. When students complain they can’t do the problem.

You obviously tried so hard, for all of five minutes, before you told me you couldn’t do it. Have some perseverance, please!

10. After an observation you bombed, when your admin asks, “So how do you think it went?

Maybe if you sound convinced of it yourself, he might, also…

11. Being told you will be chaperoning the school trip.

Because it could be, but probably not. In fact, chances are you’ll die.

12. Being surprised when a student asks a relevant question.

A question that may actually further the learning. Try to keep the surprise off your face.

13. And when they ask to go to the bathroom…again.

Please don’t ruin our wonderful class discussion by asking to go to the bathroom. Use the hand sign!

14. What you sometimes wish you could say to kids about their work.

Let’s be honest, you’re definitely saying it in your head.

15. Lesson planning.

Pinterest, Teachers Pay Teachers, and countless other websites make lesson planning a breeze. No need to reinvent the wheel.

16. Eavesdropping on student conversations.

You feel so hip and young that you can’t help but chime in…which just makes you seem old and creepy.

17. When the bell is about to ring and you see your students chatting in the hallway.

Seriously? Really? Come on.

18. Students after you’ve given the instructions for the third time.

Again, seriously?

19. After admin tells you you’re getting the difficult class.

You know you can do it, but you want to act humble (and you also might be a little scared).

20. The last period of a hard day.

You’re exhausted. You’re done. But you don’t show any weakness.

21. When you hear that there is lice in the school.

Suddenly your head starts to feel itchy…

22. When you switch grades or subjects.

It's not like the administration could have told you, so you could use the summer to prepare. Nope, overnight it is.
