Happy World Teachers’ Day! You never heard of it? Well, it’s probably the only one day where teachers in schools and other educational institutions of all milestones are appreciated for the hard work they do to help us learn about the world and achieve success of our own. It’s a pretty recent invention (this year’s is only the fifth, meaning it may have been designated as such in either 2010 or 2011), but every October 5th is now considered World Teachers’ Day.


On the topic of today being World Teachers’ Day, my mind has obviously turned to two certain (fictional) teachers; namely, Dartmouth McKinnon-Graham and Jollimore Ferrison from Secondary School by the Sea. These two have very different mindsets and outlooks on their jobs and their lives as a whole: Dartmouth believes that his job is nothing but stress, anxiety and having to deal with rowdy students, while Jollimore is a lot more positive, with his students enjoying his company and optimistic attitude.

So I’ve decided to curate this little gallery of artworks featuring the teaching twosome in celebration of their jobs, even if Dartmouth doesn’t really see the bright side of the teaching profession…

If you could read this, thank your teachers for that. It’s a very valuable life skill!
