** Miss Grotke's a pretty cool teacher herself as well. She has a relaxed approach to life, meditates on a regular basis and was revealed in one episode to [[spoiler: perform magic shows for the elderly.]] Also in [[RecessSchoolsOut the movie]], she's also not afraid to [[spoiler: unleash her [[BewareTheNiceOnes martial arts skills on anyone]] who [[MamaBear threatens her students]].]]

* Deconstructed with [[LackOfEmpathy Gavrill]] [[DiabolicalMastermind Madaraki]] in ''Manga/FrankenFran'' when a family friend asks her to fill in at his school. Most of her students adore her because she gives them advice for their problems. Said advice tends to be along the lines of "get away with rape by using your parent's status to blackmail your victims" and "get rich by seducing a millionaire, have his child, force him into marriage, and kill him". That said, she does ''occasionally'' give genuinely good advice.

Added DiffLines:

* Professor Kukui from ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' has an attitude that is both easygoing and adventurous, and he makes sure that his students share in the fun. When Ash decides to enroll in his school, he's immediately accepting of his new student.

Added DiffLines:

* Mark Jefferson of ''VideoGame/LifeIsStrange'' is shown as one as soon as the game begins. He was a fairly famous photographer in his own right before becoming a photography teacher at Blackwell (which was what motived [[PlayerCharacter Max]] to return to her home town and attend). He's relaxed enough to allow his students to take photos in class (even working Max taking a selfie into his lecture), encourages them all to enter the "everyday heroes" contest and sees through [[AlphaBitch Victoria]]'s brown nosing. Deconstructed when he's shown to be less than perfect in some ways; there are rumours he slept with Rachel Amber, he UsefulNotes/{{Victim Blam|ing}}es Kate for being drugged [[spoiler: and he's a MadArtist who loves drugging students so he can photograph BreakTheCutie moments, and shows up at the end of Episode 4 to drug Max and shoot Chloe dead to cover up his own involvement in Rachel's death and Kate's suicide attempt.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Gabe Kotter's unorthodox teaching approach has shades of the wise-cracking Creator/GrouchoMarx when he uses humor to help the [[DustbinSchool Sweathogs whom other teachers regard as a lost cause]], as contrasted with stuffy [[DeanBitterman Vice-Principal Woodman]] in ''Series/WelcomeBackKotter''.

* Subverted in Disney's ''Disney/BigHero6''. [[spoiler: Professor Callaghan genuinely cares about his students, but his hatred and embitterment towards Krei after his daughter his seemingly killed because of him drove him to become Yokai, and therefore oppose his former students after they become the Big Hero 6.]]

* Although we don't see too much of her in action, Mary Margaret from ''Series/OnceUponATime'' is the one positive influence in Henry's life - and gave him his fairy tale book as a way of encouraging his imagination. Of course in her past life she was Snow White - princess and LadyOfWar - taking this trope to a new level.

Added DiffLines:

* In non-mage Hawke playthroughs of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' where Bethany joins the Circle, she's seen as this. Because of the exceptional magical education she received from her father, she rises very quickly through the ranks to become a senior enchanter by age 22, and becomes a teacher and mentor figure to several of the younger mages. She's also held in high regard by other adult mages and even by the Templars.

* Liv, Amelia's English teacher in ''Literature/ReconstructingAmelia''. She's young, smart, funny, and gets along great with Amelia. She's also [[spoiler:a ''brutal'' subversion of the trope, as it turns out she's the one running a cruel gossip blog that spreads rumors about the students]].

* The science teacher in WesternAnimation/{{Frankenweenie}} sort of counts, though it can be a little unclear due to the gloomy tone of the film. But he is clearly very excited about his subject, illustrates his points with theatrical story telling, gestures and chalk drawings and chides the adults of the town for being small-minded and preventing him from expanding their children's minds, even if he has an (on the surface) fairly threatening way of saying it. He also listens and gives advice to Victor when he asks him a question outside of the classroom and tells him its important to love his project. Note that most of the class is very excited about the Science Fair, and that the children don't seem very happy with their substitute when he is fired.
