G is for Gnome? Top 15 Movie Teachers

Didn’t you wish the teachers you saw in the movies were the ones in your school? They always seemed either so much cooler, smarter and more understandable to what you were feeling or going through.

This did start off as a Top 10 but I ended up finding more! Anyway, here are my Top 15 Movie Teachers (not in order).

1. DAVE JENNINGS / ANIMAL HOUSE – But that doesn’t relieve you of your responsibility for this material. Now I’m waiting for reports from some of you… Listen, I’m not joking. This is my job!”

2. JOHN KEATING / DEAD POETS SOCIETY – No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.”

3. DEWEY FINN / SCHOOL OF ROCK – I have been touched by your kids… and I’m pretty sure that I’ve touched them.”

4. JOHN KIMBLE / KINDERGARTEN COP – No more complaining. No more “Mr. Kimble, I have to go the bathroom”. Nothing!”

5. CHARLES XAVIER / X-MEN – Ah, Logan. I’d like you to meet Ororo Monroe, also called Storm. This is Scott Summers, also called Cyclops. They saved your life. I believe you already know Dr. Jean Grey. You are in my School for the Gifted for Mutants. You’ll be safe here from Magneto.”

6. DR. HENRY JONES, JR / INDIANA JONES – No, no, not really. Ravenwood is the real expert. Abner did the first serious work on Tanis. Collected some of its relics. It was his obsession, really. But he never found the city.”

7. MR. MIYAGI / THE KARATE KID – Lesson not just karate only. Lesson for whole life. Whole life have a balance. Everything be better. Understand?”

8. COACH HERMAN BOONE / REMEMBER THE TITANS – We will be perfect in every aspect of the game. You drop a pass, you run a mile. You miss a blocking assignment, you run a mile. You fumble the football, and i will break my foot off in your John Brown hind parts and then you will run a mile. Perfection. Let’s go to work.”

9. JACK GRIFFITH / EASY A – I don’t know what your generation’s fascination is with documenting your every thought… but I can assure you, they’re not all diamonds. “Roman is having an OK day, and bought a Coke Zero at the gas station. Raise the roof.” Who gives a rat’s ass?”

10. YODA / STAR WARS – Yes. A Jedi’s strength flows from the Force. But beware the dark side. Anger, fear, aggression. The dark side of the Force are they. Easily they flow, quick to join you in a fight. If once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny. Consume you it will, as it did Obi-Wan’s apprentice.

11. PROFESSOR MICKY ROSA / 21 – The only thing worse than a loser is someone who won’t admit he played badly.”

12. SEAN MAGUIRE / GOOD WILL HUNTING – I knew you before you were a mathematical god, when you were pimple-faced and homesick and didn’t know what side of the bed to piss on!”

13. MISS. HONEY / MATILDA – Don’t sneer at educated people, Mr. Wormwood. If you became ill, heaven forbid, your doctor would be a college graduate.”

14. ALBUS DUMBLEDORE / HARRY POTTER – “Dark times lie ahead of us and there will be a time when we must choose between what is easy and what is right.”

15. LIONEL LOGUE / THE KINGS SPEECH – You have such perseverance Bertie, you’re the bravest man I know.”

    Interesting that all but one on the list are men, when in reality, most teachers are women.
