* ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'''s Marzipan is shown as a teacher at a "montessodium school" in one cartoon; given that her only students are Homestar, Strong Mad, and Homsar and that the main cast are generally implied to be the entire population of Free Country USA, it's likely that she's not just the only teacher but the founder as well.

This is still TruthInTelevision today in many regions of the world, where single-room schools still exist. For example, this isn't unheard of in Japan today; a combination of urbanization ''and'' declining birth rate means children are rare sight in rural areas. Since there are few children, schools are merged or just plain shut down, and those that remain are often run by a handful of teachers-- in rare cases, by one or two {{schoolmarm}}s. In Russia, the situation is similar, except the rural areas are much larger and much more sparsely settled; one-room schools, called ''selskaya malokomplektnaya shkola'' (rural small-class school) never actually went out of style during the Soviet period, and are only in more demand today.

In male viewer-oriented stories, the schoolmarm tends to be young and pretty--sometimes [[MsFanservice suspiciously so]]. In stories from the schoolmarm's point of view, she may be a bit older and [[GenericCuteness somewhat plain-looking]], to make her eventual romantic involvement that much sweeter. If the story is from the children's point of view, the schoolmarm will often be a hatchet-faced spinster, who's not afraid of using a switch on misbehaving youths, for loose values of "misbehaving."
