Exactly What It Says on the Tin
, the Hot Teacher is a young and attractive person who pursues a career in education. Because Beauty Equals Goodness
, he is almost always also a Cool Teacher
, though hentai
series like to subvert
this by making him evil
or a sadist
. He, or more likely she, often teaches health or science so the story can bring up human or animal reproduction.
Male versions of this character tend towards wearing Stoic Spectacles
, whereas female versions usually have a Hot Librarian
appeal. While not exactly a teacher, the School Nurse
also technically qualifies for this trope, being school staff and usually sharing a similar dynamic with the principal cast. School nurses, of course, tend to go for the Hot Scientist
or Hospital Hottie
It should be noted that a Hot Teacher is not necessarily Hot for Student
, though if the show does
feature a student-teacher relationship, the elder party is very likely to be this trope. Similarly, many Hot Teachers find that quite a few of their opposite-sex students (or same
, we're not picky
) — sometimes even the entire student base
— are indeed hot for them.
Please note that this applies to a character, not simply any hot actor playing a teacher, for the same reason Real Life
examples are not listed here. Most actors are "hot" in the first place
, so it usually goes unsaid. You can have an attractive teacher without
their hotness being a plot element in the work - that would not
fall under "Hot Teacher".

Anime & Manga
- Kuniumi Maitake from Lovely Complex is an impossibly over-the-top parody of the trope.
- Ichimoku Ren and Hone-Onna spend most of the third season of Hell Girl disguised as such.
- Takahata D. Takamichi from Mahou Sensei Negima!. Also the protagonist Negi, if you ask any girl or woman he's ever met.
- Apparently just to cover one more fetish we've briefly seen Evangeline in the outfit, at a chalkboard, lecturing Negi and Konoka.
- In the Negima followup UQ Holder it turns out that Evangeline is a Hot Teacher.
- A somewhat unconventional example is Amamiya Akira from ef - a fairy tale of the two., who's got a very bishonen design but is also clearly much older than most other examples.
- Yoko Littner briefly works as one after the timeskip in Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. There's no point in spoilering that anymore; because of all the fanservice omake pics floating around, anyone not familiar with the show only knows her as the Hot Teacher.
- Any number of hentai series feature a hot school nurse who's all too willing to help the students with their sexual problems, and - as mentioned in the entry proper - another stock hentai character is the hot male teacher who gets a little carried away with alternatively punishing or rewarding his students.
- Nozomu Itoshiki of Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei who has the requisite Stoic Spectacles. And for a female example, Chie Arai, who pretty much fills the school nurse role mentioned above (technically she's a guidance councilor).
- Any of the 5 teachers in Happy Lesson who adopt Chitose as his "mama".
- Mitsuka Yoshimine from DearS, Takeya's teacher, who has the kids practice english by reading erotic books she wrote and has her own section of home movies. She also falls under Hot for student as she believed that a study group was going to have an orgy, disappointed that she had dance classes.
- Kanda from Code:Breaker
- Fujitaka Kinomoto, Yoshiyuki Terada and Kaho Mizuki (this one is a hot assistant teacher, and lampshaded by the whole class on her introduction) in Cardcaptor Sakura. All of them are involved to one degree or another in Hot for Teacher situations, whether played straight or subverted.
- Shinichi Namura and Ryouko Momoi from Marmalade Boy.
- Akiko Aoshika of Wolf Guy - Wolfen Crest.
- Mathematics and homeroom teacher Vera Collins from Heroman. The drill hair is a little odd, but you have to admit, she's still sexy. What makes her stand out in the anime category is the fact that she's an American.
- Oh hai, Nyamo! Sorta fitting that a gym teacher would be in shape (and what a lovely shape, too...). Yukari too, though her personality can tend to turn people off.
- Being the master of the Hiten-Mitsurugi Ryu, 43-year old yet very handsome Hiko Seijuro should count.
- Yoshinoya from Hidamari Sketch.
- Marie and Stein (in a weird way) from Soul Eater.
- Raphael from Tenshi Ni Narumon
- In The World God Only Knows, Keima's homeroom teacher Nikaido. Also Jun, the student teacher that Keima had to court in order to capture the runaway spirit in her.
- Mizuho Kazami is the title character from Please Teacher!. Once they first see the young female teacher that they heard about, Hyosuke is the first one to comment, shouting that she's great. As the students walk home they all agree that she's good looking and Hyosuke says that she has that woman's charm.
- Shizuka Nekonome from Rosario + Vampire probably qualifies. An omake reveals she doesn't wear a bra.
- Hinako of Ranma ½... half of the time. Whenever she isn't a Hot Teacher, she's in her other form that gives her the mind and body of a Token Mini-Moe.
- Azusa Kikukawa from Kurobara Alice would be this if she loosened up both in looks and attitude. Kouya still finds him beautiful.
- Nasujima-sensei from Durarara!!. Even though he lusts after teenage schoolgirls. In fact, if it weren't for his perversion, he'd actually have fangirls. He's an older example, but is an◊ example◊ , nonetheless.
- Mr. Izumi from Zodiac PI, who happens to be a Bishōnen teacher, very well liked by his pupils. Did I neglect to mention he also kidnaps his students?
- Keiju Tabuki from Mawaru-Penguindrum.
- Ayane "Ayanecchi" Tezuka from Rouge Noir is the very rare protagonist example.
- Megane Koichi Azuma from Kimi To Boku
- Luuhi Jiston from Nyarko-san becomes this later on in the light novels. Bonus points for being a Moe Anthropomorphism of Cthulhu.
- To Love-Ru has Mikado, the school nurse, and more recently Tearju-sensei.
- Highschool of the Dead has Shizuka, the school nurse, who is also The Ditz and takes Impossibly-Low Neckline to a whole new level.

- Invoked by Satan (Elizabeth Hurley) in the 2000 remake of Bedazzled (2000) at an all-boys' school. The desk overflowing with apples says it all.
- Beth in The Descent mentions the fact that she is an English teacher.
- Elizabeth in Bad Teacher, especially when she needs to raise money.

- The main character from the Chilean movie Sexo con Amor ("Sex with Love") is Luisa (Sigrid Alegria), a very pretty elementary schoolteacher who has a romance with the father of one of the kids she teaches and now has to discuss how to teach them sex ed with the parents.

- Abby Shipton, a visiting teacher from Hadley, Wisconsin in W.F. Miksch's The Addams Family Strike Back. Uncle Fester commented that he wished they'd had teachers like her when he was a kid.
- Will Schuester on Glee, to the point where two girls went completely nuts over him and even followed him home to cook and clean up for him. Though one must admit he doesn't make it easier for his students by singing sexy songs on stage with them and accepting to play a role in a musical that requires him to be completely topless.
- In Doctor Who, the Tenth Doctor gets a stint at this when he's temporarily turned human in the two-parter "Human Nature"/"The Family of Blood", where he's a boarding school professor called John Smith.

- iCarly: Miss Ackerman. Turns up to the Shay apartment in a smoking hot red dress, that causes ''Carly'' to say Woah, you look hot, and then Freddie to practically drool all over the floor when he shows up after. This was season 1 Freddie, as in barely hit puberty Freddie. That's how hot she was.
- There's substitute teacher Ms. French in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode "Teacher's Pet" who has all the boys drooling over her. Even Giles admits that she's "extremely well proportioned." Turns out she's taking virgin boys home, mating with them, and biting off their heads. Because she's actually a giant praying mantis.
- There's also Robin Wood, the principal of Sunnydale High in season seven, and Miss Calendar, Giles' love interest, who are portrayed as likable but never stated to be seen as good looking.

- Chance from Noah's Arc is this, having a student and teachers aide pursue him as well as being fanservice in his own right the few times we see him shirtless. Note that though he is the oldest of the main four cast, hes still quite young for a college professor in his position.
- Ximena in Carrusel. She may dress conservatively and comfortably, but more than one boy has a crush on her. Also add Susana and Rene, who were attractive and had plenty of student fans.

- "Mr Watson" by Ke$ha.
- "Abigail Beecher" by Freddy 'Boom Boom' Cannon.
- Pretty much the entire point of Rogue Traders' video for their song "Way to Go!"

- Plenty of teachers at Whateley Academy in the Whateley Universe, since a lot of the teachers are retired superheroes and superheroines. The headmistress is really Lady Astarte, and she used to teach English. She currently looks like a thirty year old Hollywood starlet, only better built.
