As a teacher I think it's important to pull inspiration from other educators. There are so many characteristics of a great teacher I almost couldn't choose just five. But when I had to narrow it down here is what I came up with:
1. Complete hatred of students.
2. Physical violence? Absolutely!
3. Instill fear in (almost) all your students.
4. Speak as if always giving death threats.
5. Greasy hair a must.
It took me about 2 seconds to find someone who embodied all of the aforementioned qualities.
I sincerely hope you weren't expecting anyone else.
|Pretty sure that's illegal.|
This whole post came about because today while reading "The Witches" aloud to my students I had to keep reading the number 454. I couldn't not read it like Snape. And anyone who is a true fan of Snape should remember the following scene.
Side note: Teaching would be so much easier if I had a wand.
And as a present to all my loyal readers, I found this clip while searching for the previous one. As long as you're a Harry Potter fan you'll enjoy it. And if you're not, well then, 1000 points from Slytherin. (Only Slytherin's hate HP.)
You're most welcome.
