I love that The New York Times did this feature on Mr. Wright, and I think we can all agree: He rocks. But there are a lot of amazing teachers out there. Did you have one? If so, you should share this video and give a shoutout to a teacher who inspired you the way Mr. Wright inspires his students. We need more positive vibes out there on the Internet!

Love the story?
