Would you be more likely to pay attention in class if your teacher looked like this?

That’s what one school is hoping.

Reddit user AlaskanFrog posted this photo on Monday with a caption explaining that the school where he or she works has been trying to “get kids interested in learning.” Taking this goal deeply to heart (in an awesome way), the history teacher came to school dressed up as a medieval knight.

While some Redditors wondered hypothetically if the teacher had any trouble getting through a school metal detector, most had positive things to say about the costume.

“Teachers like this deserve medals. To totally swallow up your pride to do your job well, that's amazing,” wrote user Br00tman.

We curious about something, though. If this teacher dresses like this on a regular school day, what does he do for Halloween?
