And there is special reason to do it this week as the country celebrated Thank A Teacher Day.
Who was your favourite in the classrooms of South Tyneside and are they included in our retro feature?
We have scenes from Westoe Crown and St Bede’s RC Primary. We have teachers at schools in Hebburn and Westoe.
So why not take a look and see if you can recognise someone you know.
1. Mick Fay at St Wilfrid's RC
Teacher Mick Fay was pictured with pupils at St Wilfrid's RC School in South Shields as they worked on a project about Sri Lanka in 2005. Remember this?
2. Carole Godfrey at St Aloysius
Deputy head teacher Carole Godfrey was in the picture with her pupils at St Aloysius RC Juniors in Hebburn in 2006. Can you spot a familiar face?
3. John Vasey and Jane Richardson at Stanhope Primary
16 years have passed since this photo was taken at Stanhope Primary School. It shows head teacher John Vasey, teacher Jsne Richardson and star pupils after they received a great Ofsted report.
4. Margaret Liddle and Scott Brown at Hadrian Primary
No wonder they are smiling! Hadrian Primary was celebrating an Achievement Award for the third year running and the pupils were celebrating the achievement with Margaret Liddle and Scott Brown.
