* Yukari from ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'' gets bored with her job easily. The show's opening even shows her sleeping at her desk. In one episode, she's just come back from summer vacation and she's as bummed out about going back to school as two of her students. Chiyo, also one of her students, tries to motivate Yukari with [[SurvivalMantra a repeated chant of "Get motivated!"]], but it doesn't work.

The manga shows that, since she still lives with her parents, she even needs them to wake her up for work.

* In episode 4 of ''Anime/{{K}}'' Shiro sneaks his two new (supernatural) friends into his class at school. The teacher briefly stops to ask who they are, and Shiro tells him they're, uh, new transfer students. The teacher doesn't stop to verify this at all, he just keeps droning on about the book they're reading, completely oblivious.

* Mr Budgen in ''Series/WaterlooRoad'' - he's been there for decades, despises the pupils, puts in only the bare minimum of effort and has no time for any sort of innovation or for the headteachers who impose it. In the later seasons he does get better, starting to care about at least some of his pupils and rediscovering his love of his subject. He never completely shakes off this trope, but the main ApatheticTeacher role passes to Mr Windsor.

He's still capable of being a very competent teacher, but most of the time you wouldn't think so, because he just doesn't care enough to demonstrate it. In the later seasons he does get better, starting to care about at least some of his pupils and rediscovering his love of his subject. He never completely shakes off this trope, but the main ApatheticTeacher role passes to Mr Windsor.

** Back when he was in kindergarten, Bart had a teacher whose open contempt and apathy towards him contributed to him being an underachieving class clown.
