Blu Rain from Precious 

Let’s keep it a thousand.

Precious’ life was A MESS. The Harlem teen was facing an abusive mother, kids by her abusive father and she was bullied for her size. Her only haven throughout the movie was a teacher named Blu Rain (played by Paula Patton) at an alternative school. Rain helped Precious (played by Gabourey Sidibe) discover her creative side and she even provided safety and housing during an intense moment in the film. This, plus a name that literally sounds like peace, makes Blu Rain an MVP teacher everyone could use.
