This week, the show welcomes a guest turn from actress Lisa Bonet, the “Cosby Show” and “A Different World” alum whose last TV sighting was on the Sundance Channel in March, delivering a multi-episode arc on her husband Jason Momoa’s  series “The Red Road.” (It returns for a six-episode second season in 2015).

At the time, the series marked her first work in six years, after recurring as Det. Maya Daniels in ABC’s short-lived drama “Life on Mars” in 2008.

And also, I think, really recognize the importance and the responsibility that they have as teachers and the impact that they can have on students’ lives,” said Bonet, who turned 47 on Sunday (Nov. 16).
