Cheeky: Posters Every Teacher Has


Kath Shelden and Violet Brose

Since coming back to school, we at Cheeky have noticed that our teachers seem to have a remarkably similar taste in classroom decor. We have to wonder whether poster manufacturers realize that all of their stock has been sold to a single suburban high school in Western Washington. Our teachers seem to have an affinity for the “classy” combination of serifs and cursive, comic sans, diversity posters and quotes that are meant to be inspirational.


This article is purely satire and all of the posters on this page are spoofs of the originals. We at Cheeky do not mean to bruise the egos of any poster designers or teachers. We advise them to take their own advice and remember that “life is about making mistakes and learning from them” and to just “hang in there.”
