We’ve all had a teacher we’ve loved, who changed our lives and believed in us. God bless ‘em. And we’ve all had teachers we can’t stand, that made us pretend to be sick in the morning so we didn’t have to go to school. Today, we’re bringing you stories from the classroom. That’s right! From the hallowed halls of learning where, while kids stuff each other in lockers and pass notes betweens desks, America’s heroes are trying to teach them something. Today on Snap Judgment, “Teacher, Teacher.”
