** She swapped desks to make it look like she was locked out of her own, the janitor wouldn't be likely to help her break into another teacher's desk. She never found the drugs, either, it was Elizabeth who "suggested" there might be a false bottom in the drawer that Amy never knew about.

* DesignatedHero: Elizabeth is superficial, vain, lazy and mostly incompetent, and yet she is still the protagonist of the movie. She doesn't help her kids to learn (her success is achieved through cheating), she doesn't learn anything herself except perhaps to be slightly less superficial and jealousy causes her to ruin the life of her overbearing but well-intentioned rival. She breaks multiple laws and rules and her only selfless acts are brief attempts to make some of her kids a little more cool. In short she is a terrible person and does almost nothing to justify the fact that the audience are supposed to root for her.
* DesignatedVillain: Amy Squirrell. We're clearly supposed to see her overbearing, repeated, downright obsessive efforts to expose Elizabeth as a bad thing, which it would be if it weren't for the fact that she's ''right''.



* HilariousInHindsight: Elizabeth wears an "Annie" wig to disguise herself when she seduces the testing official. Three years later, she would be cast as Ms. Hannigan in the ''Film/Annie2014"

* UnintentionallySympathetic: Amy Squirrel, while a nagging busybody, is a good teacher who genuinely cares about her students and genuinely likes her boyfriend for reasons other than his money. Elizabeth rudely and nastily rebuffs her genuine attempts at befriending her, then [[spoiler: takes absolutely everything from her and ruins her life]], and we are expected to see this as a good (or, at least, a funny) thing.

* WhatAnIdiot: All sympathy aside, Amy was a complete fool to switch hers and Elizabeth's desks. There's no reason she couldn't have gone through it while there in Elizabeth's classroom. And either way, why didn't she report it to someone the second she found the drugs?
