During Teaching Appreciation Week this week comedian Wayne Brady wants the world to know teachers need support, supplies and a break.

Teaming up with Office Max in an exclusive webisode, Brady surprised an unsuspecting teacher mid-lecture with $1,000 worth of classroom supplies and even jumped in to teach the class and give the teacher a well-deserved break.

"A great teacher is an invaluable resource who should be appreciated, lauded, and let's be honest, compensated far beyond what they are now," said Brady.

Check out the first webisode after the jump.
