“Every teacher before they draw on the board: ‘I’m not an artist‘“

Teachers often draw on boards to explain ideas, and there’s a jocular line:

“Every teacher before they draw on the board: ‘I’m not an artist.’”

The line was cited on tumblr and went viral on Twitter on March 30, 2012. The saying has been printed on several GIFs.
