We often remember teachers as individuals who sent us to detention or even the principal’s office. They may seem boring—and some of them are—but they love to laugh too.

Teaching isn’t an easy profession either. It can be awkward to run into a teacher in public. Instructors also have to remain professional with their students and their parents, but every once in a while they give us a funny memory!
