Teacher Appreciation Week (May 6-10) is right around the corner but it looks like Illinois residents are happy with their teachers all the time.

Brainly conducted a poll of 1,000 Americans to figure out which states love their teachers the most.

Looks like Illinois folks appreciate their teachers almost more than any other state in the country.

The rankings had Indiana, Nevada, and Mississippi tied at the top, followed by Virginia and Illinois tying with Texas.

Even more amazing, 91% of Americans have a teacher they remember having a large positive impact on their lives.

My favorite teacher was Mrs. Sweeney. 2nd grade. She pulled a loose tooth. How could you ever forget something like that?
