** 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.

* Mrs. Puff from ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' flips flops on this depending on the writer. Though it's mostly her attitude toward [=SpongeBob=] since no matter what she does, she can't seem to get him to pass the driving portion of her test and out of her hair for good. His over-eagerness certainly doesn't help, neither does continually landing her in jail either.

* 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 key difference between {{Apathetic Teacher}}s and {{Sadist Teacher}}s is the latter hate their ''students'', while the former hate their ''jobs''. {{Sadist Teacher}}s often seem to take a sick glee in torturing their students; the teachers this trope describes don't seem to take much joy in anything, least of all their work.

There are {{Badass Teacher}}s, {{Sadist Teacher}}s, {{Cool Teacher}}s, and {{Fired Teacher}}s, and then there's this guy. Jaded, misanthropic, DeadpanSnarker material, this is the teacher who's been in the job too long. He dislikes students -- he's been there long enough to know they're thick and (usually) irritating. He hates the school, he hates the job, he ''really'' hates the management -- but because he's known virtually nothing else, he still sticks at it, putting himself through it year after year.

Sometimes, these started out as young, enthusiastic {{Cool Teacher}}s, who got beaten down by rowdy kids and an uncaring system. There's usually one person who will find that their no-longer-gives-a-shit attitude makes them a CoolTeacher anyway, or at the very least an occasional [[TheConfidant confidant]]. They're likely to seek solace in [[DrowningMySorrows the bottom of a bottle]].

bottle]]. It's often implied, if not outright stated, that even their home life doesn't offer them much respite, either.

* Mr Garcia from ''Webcomic/{{Paranatural}}'' gives off this vibe. He's constantly sleepy (if not actually asleep), constantly in a bad mood, and constantly snarking about his students. How does he keep his job? He has tenure. ''Deep'' tenure.

* Ms. Butterbean from ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' who obviously doesn't care a lick about her job. One ep even saw that she even let bullies get away with the actions long as they bribe her with an apple.
