Dear readers,

In our continuing coverage of workers that are essential to keep the world running, (we’ve covered grocery store workers, postal workers, healthcare workers, and truck drivers already!) we enter the classroom, and meet the teachers! We’ve gone through our archives to find twenty-three teacher stories that show how they have to juggle lesson plans with helicopter moms, homework assignments with lazy students, and figure out how to say goodbye to that work/life balance!
