** Professor Lupin in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban'' (in his later appearances he was no longer a teacher) and [[spoiler: [[EvilTeacher impostor]]]] Moody in book 4. Hagrid also counted while he was care of magical creatures teacher (although his lessons got a bit dangerous) as well.
** In the film of ''[[Film/HarryPotter Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix]]'', when Harry himself becomes a teacher of sorts for Dumbledore's Army, Creator/DanielRadcliffe suggested that Harry dress somewhat like Lupin in those scenes because he was the teacher he liked best and most wanted to emulate. Awww. The other teachers have shades of this (Evil ones like [[TyrantTakesTheHelm Umbridge]] and The Carrows notwithstanding as well as the incredibly boring Binns), although they tend to fit better into other categories.

** In
classes were either too dangerous or utterly boring. Harry, Ron and Hermione only pretend to like them for Hagrid, and all three drop the film of ''[[Film/HarryPotter Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix]]'', class when Harry himself becomes a teacher of sorts for Dumbledore's Army, Creator/DanielRadcliffe suggested that Harry dress somewhat like Lupin in those scenes because he was the teacher he liked best and most wanted to emulate.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/MeanGirls'' has Principal Duvall and Ms. Norburry, though the students don't realize just how cool they are -- though Cady begins to warm up to them at the end.
** Principal Duvall is a genuinely friendly and easygoing guy who really cares about his students, but his coolness ''really'' comes through during the hallway brawl. Upon finding out all the girls in the school are rioting, he grabs his baseball bat and goes out into the chaos, single-handedly breaking it up. [[PapaWolf He's also about an inch away from beating the crap out of Coach Carson when he finds out the latter has been sleeping with students]].
** Ms. Norburry, meanwhile, is willing to push students when she feels they're holding themselves back, but she can be remarkably chill with students she likes. After the mathletes competition, when Cady explains that she can't go to the dance because she's grounded, Ms. Norburry shrugs and says, "You're already out." It's also apparent that, despite her awkwardness, she has the Plastics' ''number'' when it comes to their social politics and mindgames.

She has a relaxed approach to life, [[HippieTeacher meditates on a regular basis]] and was revealed in one episode to [[spoiler: perform magic shows for the elderly.]] Also in [[WesternAnimatino/RecessSchoolsOut the movie]], she's also not afraid to [[spoiler: unleash her [[BewareTheNiceOnes martial arts skills on anyone]] who [[MamaBear threatens]][[BadassTeacher her students]].]]

* Miss Honey from ''Matilda'' (both the film and the book). Doubly so when you consider she's brave enough to [[spoiler: teach in a school ruled by the aunt who horribly abused her and likely murdered her father.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/HouseOfAnubis'': Mr. Winkler was young, attractive and friendly. He was the one person willing to help Patricia find Joy, and even after his FaceHeelTurn, he still cared about the students. He let the students write and star in their own play, demanded Victor help them when Rufus had them hostage, and made sure to apologize to Patricia in a deleted scene. His reason for turning was a degenerative illness that required immortality to prevent, making him the most sympathetic and likable character in the Secret Society.

* Mr. Simmons of ''Hey Arnold'' bounces between being this and a [[AdultsAreUseless total idiot]].

* Mr. Bergstrom from ''The Simpsons'' is this for Lisa. to the point of her getting a crush on him.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/SchoolOfLife''. Creator/RyanReynolds plays Michael D'Angelo, or just Mr. D, a new history teacher at Fallbrook Central, replacing the favorite late "Stormin' Norman" Warner. Mr. D, as he is called by everyone, from students to other teachers and the principal. His easygoing, friendly, relatable teaching style wins over everyone, and drives Matt Warner, science teacher and the son of the late Norman, who still can't quite come out of his father's shadow, up the wall. Eventually, even Matt comes over to Mr. D's side and changes his teaching style to mirror Mr. D, partly due to [[spoiler:finding out that Michael has inoperable lung cancer, and his condition is rapidly deteriorating]]. After [[spoiler:Mr. D's death]], Matt becomes the embodiment of this trope, especially after he stops worrying about making his late father proud and just has fun.
