Some of our teachers surely have given us a really hard time in school or college, and we might have really hated a few, but we still feel nostalgic when we think of the old times. Right? 

Just like our lives, many actors played some badass teachers on television too. Well, it’s quite fun to watch them, because we don’t have to face them in real life. Here are some of them:

He was captured and held as a prisoner of war during the Vietnam War in the US Military which makes him a strict teacher.

4. Ben Chang (Played by Ken Jeong) – Community

He is in the list for a little different reason, he was caught for a fake teaching degree while teaching Spanish at Greendale Community College for a few years and somehow still managed to start teaching maths after few years. That’s why he’s badass!
