Tuesday is National Teacher Day, a chance to recognize the importance of educators, and share appreciation for the teachers who have made a difference in our lives.

Here’s how we’d like to thank our teachers: Help us create a teaching guide based on your favorite teachers.

What qualities do you think make a great teacher? Have a favorite teacher who you learned the most from? Tell us with hashtag #bestteacherever or in the comments below.

We’ll compile your responses and feature them on the site.
