There have been a lot of teacher characters in TV shows and movies over the years, and every one of them has their own unique style of teaching, their own approach to learning. Sometimes they paint an accurate picture of what it's actually like to be a teacher, and sometimes they're full of Hollywood, stereotypical non-sense, strictly for our entertainment. Which one of these legendary teachers do you think you're most like in the classroom? Let us know in the comments!
1. Jessica Day | New Girl

"Believe in yourselves. Dream. Try. Do good."
