Let’s face it. Teachers have been turned inside out and upside down this year. In a typical year, teaching is hard. Throw in virtual classrooms, technical difficulties, new curriculum, the urgency to find a way through this new wave of instructing, and you have yourself a generation of teachers that deserve the world of appreciation. Whether you are planning a week of celebration or a fun day of treats, here are 40 fun puns to pay homage to the teachers of the world. They are literally helping us raise our future leaders. Gifting them with the “Power of the Pun” to lighten and brighten their day is the least we can do!

At the end of the day, we’d all be lost without our teachers. Showing teachers appreciation with fun puns is an easy way to let them know we care. They are essential in this great big world and no matter the year, it’s a difficult job that not everybody is cracked up for. I always tease that I will coordinate a Fall Festival for 700 kids and families, but do not stick me in a room with 30 of them and ask me to teach them something. I don’t have those skills and it’s why I will do anything for teachers–especially gift them with “punny” sayings. Teachers and Puns–DO-NUT know what we’d do without them!
