Buzzfeed Article Pokes Fun at Unrealistic Teacher Stock Photos

One of the stock photos read: "I can't uncross my arms."

A humorous collection of stock photos of teachers deemed "unrealistic" is trending.

The article, published by Buzzfeed, highlights a number of stock photos of teachers in the classroom, with sarcastic "realistic" quotes underneath them. The 21 photos show teachers working one-on-one with students, reading toa  group of elementary students, working on a science experiment, and more. 

The article, titled, "I Teach For Seven Straight Hours in Stilletos and Never Stop Smiling", reads "pull up a seat, take a breath, relax, and enjoy these 21 images that reaffirm what teaching is all about. After all, you know these realistic stock photos sum up your day."

The first photo is of a female teacher facing the camera with a big smile. The classroom behind her is full of students at their desks working quietly through their worksheets.

"It's so easy to get kids working silently," the caption reads. "So easy, in fact, that I can turn my back and relax a bit."

Another photo is of a male teacher standing in front of a lively group of students who all have their hands in the air. 

"My students love to talk about long division," the caption read. "Not one of them is raising a hand to ask how much longer until recess."

A third photo is of a teacher sitting at a table with a parent and student. All three of them are admiring the young student's work with smiles on their faces. 

"Communication with parents is always easy-peesy," the caption read. "In fact, I'm looking forward to talking about, you know, that one behavior incident."
