There are teachers, as well as students, who put a lot of passion, dedication and commitment to the work they do. The fruits of this are the stories that catch your heart and move you.
Here are a dozen such unique situations.
#1 “I can’t Imagine this Ceremony Without You”.
She invited all her students to her wedding.
#2 “Don’t Worry, Write the Exam, I’ll Take Care of It”

A teacher at one US school, Dwayne Reed, whose wife is eight months pregnant with their first child, asked to work from home to minimize the risk of complications from coronavirus. His school refused. So Reed teaches remotely – right in front of his school.
#4 Everything Can Be Seen
The teacher dared to wear this outfit so her students could better understand the lesson.
#5 And it’s a Shindig!
The retired chemistry teacher completed the periodic table with cross-stitch embroidery. Every inch of the embroidery was embroidered by hand. It took him six years to complete the entire board and border.
#6 On the Truck
A school in Mexico was canceled due to a pandemic. This teacher turned her pickup truck into a portable classroom. She drives two hours a day to teach autistic children who have no books or internet access.
Moments before his graduation exam, a student burst into the teacher’s room (left) saying in a panic that they wouldn’t let him take the exam because he didn’t have the right shoes. The teacher lent him his own shoes, and all ended well

#10 Professor Takes Care
A student came to class today with his baby because he didn’t have a sitter or anyone to take care of him. Our professor said: “I’ll hold her so you can take good notes!”.
#11 Help From Behind the Glass
