This Teacher's Viral End-of-Year Meme Project Will Make Your Day
Ms. Murphy isn't a regular teacher—she's a cool teacher.
Technology has changed everything for kids today—and no one knows this more than teachers, who struggle daily to get their students to focus in class when there are smartphones everywhere. Some educators, however, are embracing modern technology and even incorporating it into their classrooms. Recently, a high school sociology teacher went viral for creating a spreadsheet to help decode his students' slang. And now there's another high school teacher who's gaining attention—this time for using memes to her advantage.
Angelina Murphy is a high school English teacher in California who gives her students the option of making memes about her and her lessons throughout the school year. On the last day of school, she invites them to share their work. And this year, she shared some of their hilarious memes on Twitter.
"They usually take this opportunity to roast me, which I don’t mind," she wrote on Twitter. "They really outdid themselves this year…"
I give students the option to submit memes about the school year or our class and we look at them on the last day of class. They usually take this opportunity to roast me, which I don’t mind 😂 They really outdid themselves this year 😭😂 so here’s a thread of our memes! pic.twitter.com/NF5GHSnpOu

Like any great teacher, Ms. Murphy clearly has a special connection with her classes. She typically greets each student with a unique handshake when they walk in and, if she doesn't, everyone knows that something is up.
She always does her best to provide #mondaymotivation, which is no easy feat.
And she reminds her students that learning does, in fact, require a bit of effort.
But there's nothing better than being proud of your work.
Since Murphy posted the thread of memes her students created on Friday, they've received more than 35,000 retweets. And she can't help but joke about her student's memes becoming memes.
We’re a Twitter moment?! I now look forward to student memes about us going viral 😂 https://t.co/4nzml6Y0l0
