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.

He's my undergrad professor and if anyone asks him to draw a map he will! He draws at least 1 map per class per semester. This was my sacred scriptures class, he's pretty cool but most students didn't get his nerdy references..

He probably used a projector to throw the image on that whiteboard and then just traced over it with the marker. No big deal.

The maps you're used to seeing (Mercator's projection) are skewed to show the North-Western hemisphere as much bigger than they actually are. For a more accurate illustration of sizes.

This reminds me of a funny teacher in high school, when a colleague was texting during class, she took his phone and put it on her desk (to give it back to him after class, of course, as many teachers do). Then he received a call, she answered it.
