Is it bad I kinda miss going to school? I just graduated from my college business program in the spring and it feels like something is missing, maybe it’s sitting around the house for a few hours on a day off feeling like I should be working on a project and realizing, I don’t. I guess that’s another reason why I started this blog, to continue learning, practice writing, and working on projects. Sure, there’s work projects, but those are boring. Talking about fictional worlds is much more fun, so here’s my list of my top fictional teachers.
“To forgive is an act of compassion Buffy. It’s not done because people deserve it. It’s done because people need it.” – Rupert Giles
Rupert Giles: Hmm, he was a librarian, but still part of the school, but he was Buffy’s teacher, teaching her many things a Slayer needed to know. He eventually became much more than a teacher and a father figure, teaching her more about life in the end then.
“Mind what you have learned. Save it you can.” – Yoda
Yoda: He’s a teacher, technically! Everyone loves Yoda, the Jedi master with his wisdom and Jedi powers. I think one of my favorite scenes is when Luke is looking for him in the swamp and finds him, not knowing it’s the Jedi master, he seeks to train him.
“Falling from that plane may have broken my spine, but it could not break my teaching bone, no, not even if one existed.” – Peggy Hill
Peggy Hill: A substitute teacher, but she was a substitute teacher of the year three years in a row, and would never let you forget it. This Texas mom was anything but ordinary, she had so much attitude and sass never taking any guff from anyone. One of my favorite episodes has to be the Boggle championship.
“Chemistry is, well, technically, chemistry is the study of matter. But I prefer to see it as the study of change.” – Walter White
Walter White: After everything that happens in Breaking Bad I forgot he started out as a simple High School chemistry teacher. I loved how even through making meth, he was always a teacher and a scientist. He taught Jessie Pinkman a lot of science-y things afterall!
“Remember, there are no stupid questions, just stupid people.” – Mr. Garrison
Mr. Garrison: I think he teaches the kids the way it is, without any sugar coating, x1million, in his own way. When the kids are behaving the way society wants them to behave and it’s bothering him, he pretty much just says ‘What the hell is going on here.’ While he has a lot of issues, that he’s worked through, I think he makes an honest teacher.
Who are your favorite fiction teachers?
