7 celebrities who used to work as teachers

It's a fact that as kids we loved or hated a classroom mainly due to the teacher. We have the fondest memories and sometimes, we also wish they could see where we are now after they told us our baby turtle science project was a complete failure. Today, we honor them. On World Teachers Day, you will be surprised to learn that some of the best known celebrities used to work with students. Find out below!

  • Each year on October 5th, the world remembers the adoption of  teachers after the 1966 ILO/UNESCO Status of Teachers.
  • Basically, they recognize their incredible work as one of the main keys to the international Education agenda.
  • It's one of the most stressful jobs in the world! But some stars like Sylvester Stallone, Hugh Jackman and even Hillary Clinton did it at some point of their lives. 
1. Hugh Jackman

The 'Wolverine' actor is fit in every movie he plays. Not by chance, he was a gym teacher in England. Actually, he bumped into one student during an interview!

2. Hillary Clinton

The politician made extreme sacrifices for her career and family. In 1974, she became one of the few female teachers at University of Arkansas where she taught criminal law after moving there to be with her husband Bill.

3. Sylvester Stallone

Can you imagine having 'Rocky Balboa' as your gym teacher? What an honor! He taught in the American College back in Switzerland when he went for an international semester abroad. 

4. Liam Neeson

Liam Neeson was always a fighter

The English actor once pursued being a teacher, but it failed after hitting one of his students, who had previously pulled out a knife to him. Afterwards, he decided to dedicate that anger to performing amazing movies like 'Cold Pursuit', 'The Grey' and 'Schindler's List'.

5. Gene Simmons

Believe it or not, the star of the rock band Kiss was a teacher of 6th grade in Harlem, New York at the same time he started his music group. He loved it because he was the center of attention, and it was a nice stage. But Gene wanted more "The stage was small. 30 wasn't enough. I wanted 30,000"

6. Jon Hamm
