I voted for miss Honey from matilda, she's so nice!
and then I saw Mr Rock from Hank Zipzer... why????

kawaii101 · 4 years ago

I had to put Dumbledore! He is so cool!

banjoblaze · 4 years ago

I voted for Albus Dumbledore because he was unique and had a great sense of humour. Also, when he was headmaster, Hogwarts seemed to be run particularly well.

banjoblaze · 4 years ago

Who else is looking forward to seeing Jude Law as young Dumbledore in fantastic beasts 2?

banjoblaze · 4 years ago

My all time favourite fictional teacher isn't on here. His name was Mr. Sutton and he was kind, caring and interesting. He was from a book called Silver by Chris Wooding.

ajmyles · 4 years ago

I voted Hagrid !

He's so kind and helpful?

sisterocks · 4 years ago

Rubeus hagrid has the most fun lessons, I don't like him sometimes but he's better than the other choices in my opinion

ninjagoh · 4 years ago

I picked Dumbledore because he he really help's Harry out in the books!

grace27 · 4 years ago

Miss Honey, definitely. She is a lovely fictional teacher and always looks out for Matilda

rebecca.xo · 4 years ago

I put Miss honey from Matilda because she is very king and funny

catonclan · 4 years ago

I love miss honey!

tkultimate · 4 years ago

I think Mr Rock because he is an inspirational figure because he doesn't care what disabilities Hank or the other students may have, all he cares about is making Hank and the others have a good time.

radishes10 · 4 years ago

professor mcGonagall-she's script, but fair, kind and sometimes amusing and also she's in Harry Potter (I loooovvvvvveeeeee❤️???????????♥️ Harry Potter!!!!!!!) ??????????☺️????????????????

popchip4 · 4 years ago


radishes10 · 4 years ago

@prongsii -I wish Snape was a choice- he is by far my favourite teacher!!! But still, he wasn't, so I voted professor McGonagall (the second best choice!)

oceangirl · 4 years ago

I had to vote for professor Mcgonagall

girlywirly · 4 years ago


banjoblaze · 4 years ago

I agree that Snape would be a good option if he was here.

riu · 4 years ago

No vote for the Simpsons one ???Why

coolguy · 4 years ago

Dumbledore and or Mr rock ?????

puppy20 · 4 years ago

I chose Mr Rock from Hank Zipzer as he is so cool and fun and relaxed! Miss Honey from Matilda would also be one of the best and nicest teachers ever!

gavriella · 4 years ago

I think that Chiron/Mr Brunner should have been one of the six on the list because he was two completely different personalities as a teacher.

akurapaty · 4 years ago

I really like Mr.Rock. He is SO cool

akurapaty · 4 years ago

I accidentally voted for Miss Honey! She is good tho

gagho · 4 years ago

ninjahari · 4 years ago

I hate how there are SOOOOOOO many Prof.Dumbledore Voters!Give the others a chance!

ninjahari · 4 years ago

Actually...I kinda wish I had voted Dumbledore... I mean,WOW!

emperor · 4 years ago

I put Prof. McGonagall. But my favourite teachers of all time are definitely Professor Severus Snape and Professor Alastor Moody, both from Harry Potter Series. I like my form tutor but I'm not sure that counts ?

emperor · 4 years ago

Its kind of funny how loads of people said Snape ? it would definitely be up there

hptigers · 4 years ago

It has to be Dumbledore!

LeoCOOL · 4 years ago

I wish he was my teacher!

ZENCE40 · 4 years ago

Mr Rock is so awesome! i wish we had a teacher like him!!!!

formentera · 4 years ago

I love harry pitter

Shreybu · 4 years ago

Hagrid, definitely! Professor Rubeus Hagrid is the funniest and most understanding professor. He will teach you in a fun way and be your best friend at all times!

lilialolli · 4 years ago

Hagrid from Harry Potter is a clumsy,friendly and of course GIANT. He might come across as a person (or half-giant)that often breaks the rules but does give some warm and useful advice to HarryandCo during the years at hogwarts and some treasured memories were shared with him and Harry at hogwarts. I think Hagrids the BEST(fictional) teacher their is!

Sparkle09 · 4 years ago

Why is Remus Lupin not on this list?

musica100 · 4 years ago

I voted for Professor McGonagall because I love Griffindor and Harry Potter.

yum_kitty9 · 4 years ago

might have died if I had not voted McGonagall

yum_kitty9 · 4 years ago

but they dont have Snape or I would have done him

eeveepika · 4 years ago

fifa · 4 years ago

Definitely mr rock from hank zipser because he is so kind and he really cares about hank and he helps him with his dyslexia

vvvv · 4 years ago

Very hard. All the ones I know of are amazing. Miss Honey is a wonderful woman, so is Mc Gonnagell. Rubeus Hagrid is really wonderful, so is Albus Dumbledore. Professor Mc Gonnagell doesn't get enough credit so I chose her. Who could hate her?

prodandy · 4 years ago

I was leaning towards Hagrid, although I just had to for Miss Honey!

[email protected] · 4 years ago

Dumbledore is winning squeeeeeeeeee

fluffy14 · 4 years ago

I love Harry Potter and I have watched all the films and read the books at least twice
But it was difficult choosing between Hagrid as well because in the books and films they are
both much loved characters

gavriella · 4 years ago

Hagrid is my all time favourite teacher.He is risky and a real heroic figure.Hagrid has amazing qualities of a bold,witty man .Hagrid is a rather odd and interesting person.

RoseBun · 4 years ago

Miss Honey is lovely and caring.

ravenclaw · 4 years ago

I put McGonagall,I can’t wait to go to Hogwarts and have my first ever transfiguration class!!

ravenclaw · 4 years ago

I’m so glad Snape isn’t there. #sorrybakeey

ravenclaw · 4 years ago

I couldn’t choose between professor McGonagall or Mr Finn ,but I chose McGonagall,whyyy can’t I choose both?????

My favourite fictional teacher is definitely Rubeus Hagrid from Harry Potter, because he is a really kind and lovable part of the series! I wish I could go to Hogwarts! #waitingformyletter

nostrils · 3 years ago

Profesor McGonaagall Cares for Harry so so much, I bet she'd be the BEST Grandma.

sootysweep · 3 years ago

professor Hagrid from Harry Potter. He is the best. Although I did find it hard to choose between Dumbledoor

potterpug1 · 3 years ago

I wish they had a vote for prof slughorn ???????‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♂️??‍♂️

* inhales *

celtic10 · 3 years ago

celtic10 · 3 years ago
