It’s tough for teachers to gain admiration from their students, but this guy seems to know what it takes. While sitting at the front of the class he shows off his skills by spinning a basketball on a pencil, which you know isn’t an easy feat.

To make things even more dramatic, he even writes with the pencil while the ball is spinning. The fun had to be cut short, however, when he asked the question, “Why are you filming me?”

I’m going to assume cell phones aren’t allowed in class, but I have a feeling this teacher would let it slide this once.
