11 Times Teachers Showed Their True Superpowers

11 Times Teachers Showed Their True Superpowers

Educators may not wear capes (something Edna Mode would always endorse), but we all know these exceptional professionals are masters of their craft and deserve all the praise, particularly now. With the help of our friends from Marvel, we’re celebrating 11 victories, both big and small, that are the definition of extraordinary and make each and every one of you true superheroes.

1. When you only have to give directions once

2. When “ask 3 before me” goes according to plan


3. When the student that is absent regularly doesn’t miss your class all week


4. When a student that historically struggles raises their hand to answer a question


5. When the copy machine is broken, but you pulled out a digital resource to win the day


6. When something clicks at school, and you realize a student has been honing their skills at home too


7. When you take a trip to the library, and everyone has their book

8. When the student that needed extra summer school pulls out a passing score on the standardized test

9. When the lesson plan plays out perfectly before the bell rings


10. When that light bulb moment happens right in front of your eyes


11. When you keep showing up for your kids, despite every curveball thrown your way

We tip our cap to you, educators, today and every day. Thank you for being the reason we are so fiercely committed to what we do and thank you for being the true superheroes behind every student success story.
