How Much Coffee Does a Teacher Drink?

Posted By Ryan Duques

When it comes to careers that require an early wake up and intense work, few positions require as much “on time” as a high school teacher.

 

Recently, TutaPoint surveyed veteran teachers from around the northeastern United States. One of the less serious questions asked was whether or not they used caffeine to help them get through the day.

 

Before we divulge how many teachers are downing coffee, it is relevant to share what time teachers are waking up in the morning to start their day.  According to the 2014 survey, most high school teachers get their day started before 5:30am, with 67% getting up before the sun rises. Really going after that worm: just over 30% of high school teachers get up before 5:00am.

 

To power through the day, teachers overwhelmingly use caffeine, with only 33% reporting they do not use caffeine. Here is a breakdown of the 2/3 of high school teachers that do count on the lift:

  • Coffee leads the poll with 55.8%
  • Tea with 23.4%
  • Soft Drinks accounted for 15.6%
  • Energy drinks power 5% of teachers
