This Teachers’ Day, Paintcollar takes a look at 15 awesome teachers from movies, TV and books who trained our heroes and helped them become who they are. How cool would it be if we had these for real!?
1. Master Oogway
Like Oogway, our teachers leave it up to us to discover our own paths in life while always being there with a guiding light.
2. Master Roshi
Master Roshi is that one teacher that helps us let out our inner weirdos! Oh and he also taught us to never stop training. Goku owes him big time.
3. Charles Xavier
Just imagine if our teachers could know what’s going on in our heads!
4. Tyler Durden
“No fear! No distractions!”; what a teacher yells while revising before finals. Tyler taught a generation of angry teenagers to think for themselves and that it’s OK to be a non conformist.
5. Mr. Miyagi
Mr. Miyagi says “There’s no such thing as a bad student”. We’re not sure how many teachers would agree with this!
6. Harvey Specter
He’s given us words like “The only time success come before work is in the dictionary”, “Winners don’t make excuses” and several other pearls of wisdom.
Just like Morpheus gave Neo two pills to choose from, our teachers give us two paths to choose from- paying attention and passing or goofing off and failing!
8. Coach Carter
A teacher and students are a team. “If one person struggles, we all struggle. One person triumphs, we all triumph.”
Maybe we all need a smack on the head with a cane at some point. Our teachers surely wished the could when we got out of hand!
10. Mickey Goldmill
Rocky Balboa would be no champion without Mickey yelling at him! Sometimes we need our teachers to be harsh and push us to our limits before we realise what we’re capable of.
11. Dewey Finn
The only teacher to invent a rare blood disease, stick-it-to-the-man-iosis, to help his students excel Also, legend says that saying this prayer every night before bed gives you incredibly awesome powers of rock n’ roll! Along with tons of practice of course.
12. Pai Mei
Here’s hoping our teachers have taught us all their secrets. You never know when you might need to use the five finger death punch!
13. Master Yoda
Tough lessons need to be learned before you can unleash your inner Jedi. Well most of our teachers got the grammar right.
14. Severus Snape
Maybe if we dedicated as much time to our studies as Snape did to loving Lilly, all our teachers would be proud.
15. Walter White
From timid teacher to badass drug kingpin, Walter White is one extraordinary character. All said and done he’d be a great teacher to have since he did know his chemistry perfectly!
