As Kansas City’s Fox affiliate reports, DeAnna Morgan, an art teacher at Paola High School in Paola, Kan., has won praise for the skilled drawings she leaves on the dry-erase board in her classroom.

Morgan has an extensive repertoire, with cartoon and comic book characters, pop culture personalities (including the rapper Macklemore and Jim and Pam from The Office), animals, and the occasional self-portrait greeting students as they arrive for class.
