Bonus: Having a teacher as a mum

With quarantine and distance learning, many families are finding out for the first time what the teachers in their lives actually do in the classroom, which is resulting in lots of cuteness:

    Did everyone download the ticktock during the quarantine period? I did not expect to fall into this trap, too. But I am literally in love with thatnewteacher.
    And I will also check out other accounts. Content in ticktock can be really fun and informative at the same time. Although finding something worthy of attention is quite difficult.
