Today is Teacher Appreciation Day in the US. Do you appreciate your teacher? Probably not. But if they're good then you probably should. After, school can be kind of boring, and so it takes a very special kind of teacher to stop you from falling asleep at your desk every day.
Check out this list, compiled by Bored Panda, for our favorite examples of awesome teachers. Some of them skateboard to work every day, some of them have 'I want to marry Justin Bieber' embossed on their pencils to stop students from stealing them, and some of them confiscate their student's phones just so they can take selfies with them. Let us know which ones are your favorites, and don't forget to tell us all about your own favorite teachers in the comments below. After all, while boring teachers are never remembered, awesome teachers are remembered forever.
