It’s back to school season, and what school year would be complete without a look back on the teachers who raised us. Grab your pens, pencils and erasers for a walk through the school of The Top 10 Movie And Television Teachers Of All Time!
#1: WALTER WHITE // BREAKING BAD
Walter White is one of TV’s most iconic chemistry teachers, but perhaps for the wrong reasons.
#2: EDNA KRABAPPEL // THE SIMPSONS
Mrs. Krabappel earns her namesake for every episode she appears in on ‘The Simpsons’
#3: MR. FEENY // BOY MEETS WORLD
Mr. Feeny despite being the bane of Cory Matthew’s school experience, made for an excellent role model.
#4: MS. FRIZZLE // THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS
Ms. Frizzle taught her class in unique, fun ways that definitely required more permission slips and insurance than parents or good sense would allow.
#5: MR. GARRISON // SOUTH PARK
Mr. Garrison had a unique teaching style, bad - but uniquely so.
#6: MR. KOTTER // WELCOME BACK, KOTTER
Everyone loves a teacher with a good sense of humor!
#7: MELVIN B. TOLSON // THE GREAT DEBATERS
Teaching is about what challenges your students to grow!
#8: ANNALISE KEATING // HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER
Though she might not follow real world law, her students certainly get more exposure to murder cases than most!
#9: THE ECONOMICS TEACHER // FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF
Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?
#10: PEGGY HILL // KING OF THE HILL
Peggy taught as much as she could in-between propane prepared meals.

If you take on Ms. Trunchbull and win, you make our list!

Oh captain, my captain!
#13: MR. HOLLAND // MR. HOLLAND’S OPUS’
A better ‘Musical Studies Are Important’ movie there is not.

One of the most fun, musical teachers in modern TV!
