This week was a school themed freebie, so I am going with literary teachers I would have loved to have had when I went to school.
I would have loved to have Mr. Braithwait as a high school teacher. Wikipedia summed up his teachings style perfectly.
"Braithwaite decides to try a new approach, and sets some ground rules. The students will be leaving school soon and will enter adult society, so he will treat them as adults and allow them to decide what topics they wish to study. In return, he demands their respect as their teacher. This novel approach is initially rejected, but within a few weeks the class is largely won over.

The best elementary teacher in the history of Children's books!
"Miss Jennifer Honey was a mild and quiet person who never raised her voice and was seldom seen to smile, but there is no doubt she possessed that rare gift for being adored by every small child under her care." - Matilda
Lovingly called Mr. Chips by his students he is remembered as being a kind, fair, and supportive teacher.
I have had a thing about governesses ever since I read this book. Imagine being taught a classical education by your very own teacher. I would have been the best and most agreeable student ever. Ha ha.
Her transfiguration classes were epic, and she gives naughty students sandwiches, biscuits, and second (sometimes third) chances. What's not to love?
Which literary teacher would you have enjoyed?
