First of all, if you've never seen the show Breaking Bad, do you yourself a favor and binge watch every season at your earliest convenience. After all, the entire show is about a teacher, forced into making drugs because his teacher salary won't cover his medical bills & family. For those of you that have seen the show, you'll appreciate this collection of GIFs that relate perfectly to teaching. Enjoy!
