A testimony to the power of female teachers

The World

As part of our week-long Teach Her series on women's access to education worldwide, we've put a call out for lessons learned from female teachers.

We asked, "What's the coolest or most useful lesson a female teacher has given you?

The responses we've gotten so far are almost as awesome as the women they honor. Check them out below, then submit your own via social media using the hashtag #TeachHer.
