Hilarious sketch makes a good point: Teachers should be treated like the heroes they are.

What would it be like if the world treated star teachers the way we treat star athletes?

Thanks to a spot-on parody of "SportsCenter" by Comedy Central's "Key & Peele," now we know exactly what that world would look like. And it's awesome.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to "TeachingCenter"!

We live in a society where athletes are one of the most common role models for kids.

And there's nothing wrong with that. In fact, some athletes make great role models — especially when they share messages of hard work, staying in school, and giving back to your community. Other athletes, well, maybe not so much.

The "TeachingCenter" sketch imagines a world where the question "What do you want to be when you grow up?" can be answered with: "A teacher!"

Take this clip from the teachers' "draft" featuring superstar calculus teacher Mike Yoast:

"His father living paycheck-to-paycheck as a humble pro football player — the kid was a natural mathlete."

Joking aside, the sketch makes a great point: Teachers should be treated like the heroes they are.

Teachers make a difference in the lives of kids every day. While star athletes might make tens of millions of dollars in a single season, teachers get by on a far more modest salary while contributing so much to the success of our world's future.

On top of that, teachers' work can be pretty thankless at times.

While it's unlikely to see teachers landing endorsement deals anytime soon, we can — and should — thank them for the impact they have on our kids' lives.


Make it rain, teach. Make it rain.

2. Teens raise thousands for their senior trip, then donate it to their community instead.

When it came time for Islesboro Central School's Class of 2021 to pick the destination for their senior class trip, the students began eyeing a trip to Greece or maybe even South Korea. But in the end, they decided to donate $5,000 they'd raised for the trip to help out their community members struggling in the wake of the pandemic instead.
