What is the Point of Having Cute Teacher T-Shirts?
Let’s face the truth teacher friends: we like to look good at work!
When you look good, you feel good.
And when you feel cute, that adds a few points to your teaching game.
Ok, maybe we can’t take it that far, so let’s just stick with looking good. 🤩
But “cute” doesn’t have to just be pastel-colored cardigans and trouser pants with loafer shoes. (Wait, is that even considered “cute” these days?!)
As you know from my bio, I am a single mother who works full-time. My time is precious, so I don’t always have the luxury of going “full-glam” to work.
I need my clothes to be COMFY! They need to be versatile. Which makes cute teacher t-shirts my thang!
Here are some of my faves for all my teacher friends out there. OR, for anyone looking for ideas on a teacher gift besides a coffee mug!
Funny Teacher Shirts
I know that funny is subjective. I may crack up laughing at something that you think is just boring. Nevertheless, these teacher tee shirts should at least put a smile on your face.
“You Gon’ Learn Today” Funny Teacher T-Shirt
Especially when it comes to funny teacher tees.
Not only that, but you can wear this anytime of the year for most occasions.
Amazon offers different colors and styles of this cute teacher t-shirt.
Test Day? No Prob-Llama Teacher Shirt
Did you catch on to the “llama craze” that’s been sweeping across classrooms everywhere?! If so, you’ll love this cute teacher t-shirt. If not, you gotta admit it’s still a funny looking llama!
Besides, test day is stressful enough! Lighten up your class mood by wearing something memorable.
As with the previous t-shirt, Amazon offers a variety of colors and styles on this “test day-no prob-llama” option.
You can even get it in men, women, and youth styles.
“I Love Teaching My Peeps” Teacher Tee
I’ll be honest, I don’t own this shirt, but I cracked up laughing at a co-worker who had a similar shirt for Easter one year.
To me, it’s cute and funny. Plus you can hand out Peeps candy when you wear it, which makes it even more enjoyable!
There are even versions where the peeps bunnies are wearing black sunglasses. I can just see younger students cracking up laughing at that one!
Math Joke Teacher Hoodie
It’s a hoodie plus a shirt That alone makes it a winner in my book!
Just imagine something this cool and convenient during rainy day car line or bus duty days. (The struggle is real!)
On top of that, you could turn the joke into a mini-lesson. Ask your students to explain what the joke means.
Depending on their grade level, they should understand what the shirt is trying to say. If not, then you’ll know what you need to review during math centers!

Inspirational Teacher Shirts
For the next category of cute teacher t-shirts, I want to focus on quotes and sayings that will inspire.
You never know what you or another teacher may be facing as you head into a new day with your kiddos.
These teacher tees maybe just what you’re in need of during a rough day at work.
“Be Still & Know” Christian Teacher Tee
This shirt is based on the Bible verse Psalm 46:10 “Be still and know that I am God.”
I have this shirt in white and everybody who passes by me blurts out “Be Still.” When my students get wiggly, I just point to the shirt, which always gets their attention.
Blessed Teacher Heart Shirt
This cute teacher t-shirt isn’t just for school teachers, but Sunday School teachers would love this also.
And of course, we can’t leave out homeschooling parents who are also considered blessed teachers!
Not only do I love the font, but I also really like the heart and arrow design.
In addition to that, you’ll love that this inspirational teacher shirt comes in men’s and women’s sizes.
It also has different color styles to choose from.
Be Kind Teacher Tee
Not only is yellow my second favorite color (red is my first ❤️💛), but as an ELA teacher, I adore the homophone included with this shirt!
So, I would definitely ask students to explain the difference in the “bee” vs. “be” of the design.
Hey, I can’t help it; we have to review concepts every chance we get right?!
Besides, these days, it seems that we can’t remind our students enough about kindness.
Mean behavior spreads like the flu! So having a cute teacher shirt that also sends an inspirational message works for me!

“Fri-Yay” Cute T-Shirt For Teachers
Yes, every Friday of every week all year should be celebrated! Especially when you’re a teacher. I love the work I do, but my battery is all the way on red by Friday.
This cute teacher t-shirt can lift your mood as you wrap up the work week.
Plus, you can find several different colors and designs to fit more than one Friday during the school year.
YAY to that!
Teacher of Tiny Humans Adorable Teacher Shirt
The font, the chevron apple, the arrow, the pencil, and the cute saying…what more do you need in a teacher shirt?!
Plus, it has several other colors to choose from. Black is my favorite one because the other colors really pop against that background color.
If chevron apples with pink and purple aren’t your thing, then you may enjoy this one much better:
See, I told you black makes all other colors pop more. This “teach tiny humans” tee works with any pair of pants or skirt.
It also works for any teacher…well, any early-elementary teacher that is.
Livin’ That Teacher Life Comfy Tee
This teacher tee looks awesome with a pair of white skinny jeans and bright, red lipstick!
Plus the fabric is super soft and comfy.

It is exciting to see the options available for personalizing your teacher t-shirts. Of course, anything personalized has that special touch–which makes it great for gift-giving.
This example shows a cute teacher t-shirt you can add your name to that makes it customized just for you.
I could see this being a fantastic teacher appreciation gift idea. 🎁
Go all out and grab that tee which shows your style and personality the best!
How to Wear a Cute Teacher T-Shirt to Work & Still Look Professional
Every yin has a yang! The good thing about wearing t-shirts to work is that you’re comfortable and cool. But looking “too comfortable” and cool translates into frumpy and non-professional.
Here are some tips for rocking your tees to work without looking like you just rolled out of bed:
- Iron your shirt! Think of the Bounce dryer sheet commercial when the guy giving a presentation has on a green, wrinkled shirt. All the bosses have a disapproving look on their faces! That’s what happens when you wear your teacher tee to work without ironing it first!
- Pair your tee with fitted pants. Sagging pants that don’t fit well screams SLOPPY! Upgrade your look by wearing pants (and shirts!) that fit appropriately.
- Do not wear tennis shoes with your t-shirt! Unless you are the PE teacher or it’s field day, tennis shoes “dress down” your overall look. This makes it seem like you’re not the professional, superhero teacher that you claim to be! Unless they’re dressier tennis shoes like these, you should play it safe and wear more dress shoes with your tee.
Boom-Bada-Bing! Three simple tips that can make your cute teacher t-shirt even cuter and appropriate for work.
Saving Money on Your Teacher Tees with Amazon Prime Wardrobe
One of my favorite new features with Prime is their Try Before You Buy Service aka Prime Wardrobe.
This is something that can be used on clothes for your entire family.
Let’s say you wanted to have several different teacher t-shirts to try on at home. Prime Wardrobe allows you to order up to six items, try them on at home for up to seven days, then send back the ones you don’t want to keep.
You only pay for what you keep!
I’ve used this service several times and here’s what I like about it:
- The time I save! I can quickly add clothes I want to my cart and have then shipped to me way faster than going inside a store to shop.
- My card is not charged until AFTER I sent everything back. Sometimes services like this will put a hold on your account as soon as you place an order. I hate that! Prime Wardrobe doesn’t do pre-charge your card.
- There’s no extra charge to use Try Before You Buy. You only pay for the clothes you keep.
Here’s what I DON’T like about it:
- You must return your unwanted items to specific USPS stores. I am so used to returning my unwanted Amazon items to the Kohl’s right by my house. Can’t do that with this service. 😭
- Not every clothing item is eligible. As you shop through these teacher t-shirt options, look for the Prime Wardrobe label. You can’t use this service on every single clothing item.
If this sounds like something you’d like, give it a try HERE. Remember, it’s no extra charge to you.
I know I’m not the only one who wears cute teacher t-shirts to work. Let me know in the comments below how you rock your teacher tees for school!
I’ve only spent 10 minutes in your Butterfly Lounge and have fallen in love with you as a result! I appreciate how genuine you are, that you want us to look cute even on a t-shirt day, that you know the importance of comfy (not ugly) shoes along with the fact you are like me as a full-time teacher and single parent. Bless you for all the goodness you are putting out into my work world. It’s great to know you’re here.
Girl, I love you too!! It already feels as if we know each other. I salute you, another fellow teacher and single parent (who is perfectly ok with looking cute while doing what seems impossible!!)
Thanks for the encouragement. 🙂
