This Teacher's Dry-Erase Board Drawings Are Next Level

"To say whiteboarding has positively impacted my life is an understatement."

From recreating iconic paintings to Miyazaki-themed art, we've seen teachers have a lot of fun experimenting with chalkboard art. But this teacher's medium of choice is the whiteboard. 

DeAnna Morgan, an art teacher at Paola High School in Paola, Kansas, creates epic dry-erase drawings every day to encourage creativity in her students. Morgan's illustrations often include cartoon, comic book, and pop culture characters such as Harry Potter, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Jim and Pam from The Office. She's also drawn inspiring real-life people such as Maya Angelou and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. So far, she's created more than 150 different dry-erase drawings for her students. 

Morgan shares some of her creations on her Instagram account, @mrsdrmorgan. 


"I think it's a lovely way to connect with students and connect with the community," Alaura Gage, one of Morgan's senior students, told FOX4. "So, when she posts them online, it's a thing that everyone can see. Parents can see [and say], 'Oh my kid is saying this.' It's a good way to teach children and adults art is a great way to connect with the community."

Morgan makes the drawings to get her students excited about learning, but they've also been extremely beneficial for her, too. 

"To say whiteboarding has positively impacted my life is an understatement. It has strengthened my relationships with colleagues, with students, and the community as they all support and recognize the effort that I put into this for my nuggets," Morgan wrote in an article for The Educator's Room. "This has made my students excited for school and gives them another reason to be excited to be a part of my department (besides making art, because art is cool). Through this activity, my love for education has exponentially grown as I feel I'm a far better educator and confident in my ability to connect and make a difference for all of the kids that pass through my door."
