10+ Teachers Who Deserve Their Very Own National Holiday

The 9th of May marks the national “Teacher Appreciation Day.”

Odds are, you don’t very much appreciate your teacher. They give you way too much homework and yell at you if you don’t do it right.

Which isn’t fair, considering you’re supposed to learn and do the work of ALL subjects, whereas the teacher only teaches one subject!

Nevertheless, teachers can be kind of cool too. Don’t believe me? I don’t blame you. Even if you got here a bit late, and it’s no longer teacher’s day, don’t stress about it. You’ll still get a kicker out of these awesome teachers.

#1 Iranian boy with cancer is visited by his teacher regularly


Because the kid is too sick to come to school, the teacher goes to the hospital. He visits him every day and fills him in on the stuff he missed.

#2 University student brings baby into class

Sydney Engelberg

She couldn’t afford to hire a nanny, so the awesome professor simply scooped her baby up, calmed her down, all without ever once deviating from his lecture.

#3 Teacher finds one of his students in rubble


Paul Hellstern

A tornado hit Moore, Oklahoma, and this teacher found one of his students among the ruins.

#4 Gay teacher comes to school dressed as a clown


While this picture speaks for itself, I think it deserves a bit of context. One of his students said, “I’m glad gays can’t marry here. They scare me, kinda like clowns.”

#5 Students chip in to get teacher some shoes


After complimenting one of the students on the shoes he wore, the entire class pitched in to get him a pair of his own. It was his Christmas gift. Just look at his expression at the end!

#6 Teacher makes a bold fashion choice

Again, this speaks for itself, but there’s excellent context here. The teacher is protesting against class being pushed from 9 AM to 7 AM. I think it’s a pretty effective protest.

#7 Teacher wore the same clothes for picture day for 40 years


Ladies, find yourself a man as committed to you, as this man was to his joke.

#8 One of his students was smoking in the bathroom


According to him, he waited outside for one reason and one reason only.

So that he can “suspend her ass.”

#9 Student fell asleep in class


So the teacher started clapping, and the student’s immediate reaction was to join along in the clapping. No dice, dude, you’re caught.

#10 Physics teacher explaining physics

Cool teachers and cats? I will die happy now.
