1. The Craziest Teacher
2. The Biggest Teacher
David is a computer science professor at the biggest university in the world – Harvard. He’s taught hundreds of students throughout his years.
But one day, he felt that wasn’t enough, he didn’t just want to teach the geniuses. He knew that there were so many students in the world who needed his help. So he decided to film his classes, recruit a team and build a website. And then, he started posting all his videos online.
And the response was insane! 1 million students from all over the world enrolled in his class – which would make it the biggest class ever. And he did it all – for free!
He changed the lives of so many students who could never have afforded an ivy league education, and that’s what makes him one of the best teachers out there!
3. The History Teacher who Loves Music
Meet Mr T. He’s a history teacher by day and a music teacher by midday!
Mr. T was always passionate about music and that’s why he wanted to share it with his students. Even though he’s only paid to be a history teacher, he spent his own money to buy Guitars, Ukuleles and Flutes so that his students could learn and play music.
He puts in extra time so that kids can learn music without missing out on their other lessons. He wakes up early and sleeps late – but he doesn’t mind. All because he’s so passionate about being a teacher and changing the lives of every single student!
4. The Teacher who Drew a Computer
This guy taught computers to children without using a computer!
How? Meet Richard, the guy who drew Microsoft Word on a black Board. That’s right, he drew every single button and even the mouse on the black board.
You see Richard grew up in a very poor part of Ghana. He had never seen a computer in his life. And when he did see in his college, he knew that it was the future. So he wanted to come back home and teach all the kids in his hometown, how to use it.
But because they couldn’t really afford a computer he had to draw the whole thing on the blackboard. He did this so that his students would be prepared for the real world, and prepared for a time when they have to use a computer!
After many years of doing this, Microsoft discovered Richard and his school. They were so impressed that they gave him 27 laptops, 27 tables and chairs and even a projector and a printer!
Thanks to Richard, the kids in Ghana can learn computers from a screen instead of a blackboard!
5. America’s Best Zoom Teacher
This guy built 1,000 desks.
But he’s not a carpenter or a lumberjack – he is actually a high school teacher!
Meet Nate Evans. Nate teaches the 7th Grade, but because of the pandemic, he had to teach all his classes on Zoom. And that’s when Nate noticed something weird. He didn’t see kids on desks instead he saw them taking notes on the floor, the bed, or the kitchen table!
They seemed distracted and uncomfortable. So Nate decided to make desks for them. He spent hours and hours making desks for his students. He didn’t stop when he got tired, he didn’t stop when he was diagnosed with a tumor in his arm. That’s how he’s made over 1,427 desks so far!
Nate did this because he strongly believes that when a student has their own dedicated space to study, they’ll feel comfortable and focus better. That’s why he gave every student exactly that!
