We all had that one cool English teacher in school, who would talk our language and it was just so easy to establish a channel of understanding with that one teacher. But, friends, cool teachers’ brigade is getting an update with this high-school teacher, who grades papers with memes.
According to Metro.co.uk, a 27-year-old Ainee Fatima, a teacher at East Leyden High School, Illinois, US is grading papers with popular memes. She shared some of the papers on Twitter, and we are her fan already.

Ainee told Metro.co.uk, that some of the answers get so ridiculous and funny, that it’s like so important that students could see her reaction when she reads’em.
Ainee says she loves both of the memes she uses but finds herself making the Nick Young face ‘generally in life’. She added: ‘So many people have sent me more memes to add to my sticker collection, it’s been hilarious.’
Don’t worry, I did positive memes too! 😂 pic.twitter.com/rTfHCGKQwJ— axneef (@axfxq) October 18, 2018
So far, Ainee’s tweet has received more than 100,000 retweets and 400,000 likes. She captioned it with: ‘I love grading with my new stickers!’
She says that the reason behind this innovative approach is twofold. One, it takes pressure off of the students, when they deal with negative grades (We betcha). And secondly, it makes sense, considering it’s a Media Studies English class, where they study popular culture. Hence meme sharing is a regular part of the classroom culture.
