Got to be honest here, you had me until you said that. I always thought (still do!) that Gwyneth P. is so plain it hurts. Never found her attractive. Then again, beauty is in the eye of the beholder...

In all my years of any grade of schooling, I either equally dislike or feel neutral for all my teachers except for one. My first home instruction math teacher for 10th grade. I actually learned things at my own rate since he taught accordingly for each/his students. Sadly, it was only once a week for about three months.
First day of class, once it started:
Me and my bored, uncaring face expression while he buried his face in the text book and explained stuff I already knew, then I'd just jump in and finish his statements or answer his questions. But then, the unthinkable happened. He actually looked at me and paid attention and cared about what I thought, unlike most teachers who just go to the book and have useless "Awws"
He then said, "You're not the least bit interested in any of this, are you?"
I told him no and he asked how far I got up to. I didn't know so he flipped through the book 10-30 pages at a time, asking random questions to see if I could answer until we got to a section I pointed out that I didn't know. It was only circles/arcs/secants and stuff like that, in Geometry. Around page 530 in the textbook I had. Turned out to be really easy for me to learn. I would have to do review sheets and homework still, but I got them done fast and didn't really mind. During our class sessions, we either just checked out the hardest sections in the book or messed around on GoogleSketch making 3D models and stuff. First time I actually enjoyed a class.

My favorite teacher was little ol' Ruth Putz.... She taught algebra in 7th grade. She was almost five feet tall and she looked like she was 70 when I was in 7th grade. She would write problems and lessons on her overhead projector, singing away and every tune she sang was relevant to the lesson she was teaching. She was the first teacher I ever saw that made me interested in learning something.... Even the kids that thought her methods were goofy or stupid like going to her class.

I think she became one of the higher administrators or directors of one of the teaching organizations in Montana. I have to say she was one of the most charismatic teachers I've ever known. Everyone who was in her class remembers her well.

I had an engineering teacher in high school whose favorite saying was, "No marks, no witnesses." Need I say more? Ok, fine! Jeez, calm down. He also assigned us entertaining projects like building cardboard boats, Ping-Pong ball launchers, programming robots, etc.

In college I had an attractive young English professor who'd wear short skirts and sit atop her desk in front of the class.. I'm not sure what inspired her to act out bad pornography stereotypes in class, but I never heard anyone complaining.

And if you want to go way back, my grade school teacher was a very kind woman. It's always been a little surreal when I've run into her over the years and she still recognizes me. Last I knew she was still teaching little bra-I mean kids, but I imagine she must have retired at this point considering she'd also taught some of my peers' parents.

My 10th grade world history teacher, math teacher, and my current physics teacher. I learned more history and math in one year with those two than every other year, and my physics teacher is just so cool.

During my senior year of high school, I had this one teacher who taught both economics and psychology. I took both subjects with him. He was so fun and energetic, and he sold muffins as well.

Though not always nice, Experience is definitely my favorite teacher.

Mine was a maths teacher I had throughout years 8 to 10. He was very frank and thorough - he not only cared about his job but also the welfare of his students, something I found quite rare throughout my school days. I've contemplated on visiting on him. I think he still works at the same school.

My geography teacher from Year 9, and I had him again in Year 11. He made the lessons interesting because he himself actually sounded interested. He'd also tell really bad jokes all the time and do funny things like bobbing his head back and forth like a gangster whenever that sort of music played over a clip we were watching in a class. I think it's thanks to him that I passed.

I'd probably say my senior year Physics teacher.

He was pretty much of the idea that most of us would forget what we learned in that class anyway, so instead of trying to get really in depth with physics, he taught us more logical ways of getting to solutions rather than just memorizing equations, which I thought was cool.

On top of that he was also a really cool dude in general.

I have a few.

6th grade teacher. He was really an encouragement and a positive presence in my life and motivated me to do well. I visited my elementary school recently but it was closed and converted into a different school.

Psychology teacher in senior year of high school. He was the BEST teacher. He had odd teachig methods that made you retain everything without even studying. It really felt like he hacked our brains.

Criminal law professor in law school. She was scary and fiery but a great teacher.

Poetry professor in my advanced poetry workshop in college. In class he was very blunt, very critical, and his no-nonsense critiques made people cry. But he helped me improve my writing the most and was a great person out of class. I attended his writers' week event when I visited my poetry professors after graduation and purchased a few of his books. He is retired now.

My first grade teacher Mrs. Yonada, I just barely moved to the US four months before school started. I was still learning English when I attended her class so I was struggling. She saw that I was having a hard time so during recess, lunch and after school she sat down with me to help me learn. Within the year I was able to interact and have conversations with my classmate. She was also the one who introduce me to Anime I'm forever in her debt . I still go visit her from time to time
