Here’s a big shout out to all teachers across the world — for their unmatched dedication to future generations in times of crisis and always.

Here are our favourite tweets.
Mrs. Ringeera, Chemistry.
She changed my WHOLE life. I used to just cry in the bathroom in high school because I just didn't understand what balancing an equation was, til I met her.
Because of her, I love chemistry to this day. I also made it to med school.
