As much as most of us grumbled while at school, we all had that one teacher who inspired us, who truly engaged us and got us interested in learning. This post is for those awesome teachers – the ones that know how to communicate with kids and get them excited about school.

If you've got a picture of a teacher going above and beyond to be awesome, we'd love to see it added to this list! Upvote your favorites, too.
