Hot Teacher

Go To

Exactly What It Says on the Tin, the Hot Teacher is a young and attractive person who pursues a career in education. Because Beauty = 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. Spanish teachers are almost exclusively hot.

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 look.


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".

  • A Certain Magical Index plays with this, with Tsukuyomi Komoe, an Older Than They Look girl who looks to be, at most, 10 years old, yet teaches a class, drives, and drinks beer. Touma's delinquent friends, being lolicons (among other fetishes), see her as this.
  • Code Geass has Villetta Nu come R2, complete with stripperiffic outfits and at one point she poses in a skimpy bikini.
  • Satsuki Shishio from Daytime Shooting Star is handsome, young and gentle, and many of his students love him.
  • 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.
  • While she goes more for the cuteness than the hotness, Sumiko Kobayashi from Detective Conan is considered to be very pretty. It helps that she's an Identical Stranger to the Action Girl Sato, who is very beautiful and VERY popular with men.
  • 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.
  • Luhy Distone from Haiyore! Nyarko-san becomes this later on in the light novels. Bonus points for being a Moe Anthropomorphism of Cthulhi, the star-spawn of Cthulhu.
  • Any of the 5 teachers in Happy Lesson who adopt Chitose as his "mama".
  • Ichimoku Ren and Hone-Onna spend most of the third season of Hell Girl disguised as such.
  • 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.
  • Taken to ludicrous heights by Professor Aikuro Mikisugi in Kill la Kill, who has literally performed stripteases in front of his students.
  • Azusa Kikukawa from Kurobara Alice would be this if she loosened up both in looks and attitude. Kouya still finds her beautiful.
  • Yuuta's young and gorgeous homeroom teacher Nanase Tsukumo in Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions, appropriately played by Kikuko Inoue.
  • Kuniumi Maitake from Lovely Complex (pictured) is tall, usually has a glow aura and good-looking and charming enough to get a legion of fangirls not long after he started teaching. Unfortunately them he's already engaged.
  • Machiko from Maicchingu Machiko-sensei, elementary school teacher who wears a revealing red mini-skirt and regularly finding herself in accidental sexual situations. Everyone is attracted to her at least a little bit, which is why no one stops her students' games. (That, and the very universe conspires to leave her denuded, so any such efforts would be futile.)
  • Keiju Tabuki from Mawaru-Penguindrum is very goofy (not really), but he's also very good looking and has a very nice voice.
  • Hanayu and Hayato's cooking teacher in Mixed Vegetables.
  • Nemuri Kayama/Midnight of My Hero Academia. Even more considering that her hero costume is clearly designed to look like a dominatrix, and she's often seen with a whip in hand for good measure.
  • 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.
  • Hinako of Ranma ½... half of the time. While she was a child in the hospital, Happosai rearranged her metabolism to allow her to absorb the auras of others to increase her health by having her absorb their auras. Her body ages much more slowly than other people due to the altered metabolism, so she still has the body of a child despite being an adult. But, after absorbing a person's aura, her body becomes that of a talla and beautiful woman. She is a teacher hired by Principal Kuno for the purpose of disciplining Furinkan High's many delinquent students, particularly Ranma.
  • Rosario + Vampire:
    • Shizuka Nekonome that is a cute Cat Girl. An omake reveals she doesn't wear a bra.

  • Ayane "Ayanecchi" Tezuka from Rouge Noir is the very rare protagonist example.
  • 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).
  • Marie and Stein (in a... weird way) from Soul Eater.
  • Sound! Euphonium has Noboru Taki, a handsome, thirty four year old Megane Bishōnen. This has been pointed out by Hazuki— multiple times, to anyone who lends an ear to her.
  • Yoko Littner briefly works as one after the timeskip in Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. Although her outfit is way conservative than what she usually weres (bikini top and short shorts) some of the boys in her class immediately peg her as hot.
  • Akiko Aoshika of Wolf Guy - Wolfen Crest, who may be the most beautiful woman in the story. And it's quite the curse for her.
  • 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.
  • To Love-Ru has Tearju-sensei. She is currently a teacher at Sainan High and is one of the most physically curvaceous characters in the series, possibly only second to Mikado. In the first day she is immediately harassed by boys in the class, such as Saruyama, who asks her various questions, such as if she is single.
  • 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?
  • Miho Amkata, the boys' faculty supervisor in Free! used to be a swimsuit model before becoming a teacher. She is deeply embarrassed by this, and gets supremely pissed off when Nasiga (semi-jokingly) suggests she wear a bikini to attract more members to the swim club.

    Comic Books 
  • It doesn't come up much but Huntress is a schoolteacher on her off time. Don't mess with her students if you know what's good for you. The New 52 has her teach at a boarding school much more frequently.
  • Miss Claudia Chiffre in Le Petit Spirou, a buxom meganekko with a tendency to wear miniskirts. It tends to drive Spirou and his friends nuts.
    • One strip shows that nearly every teacher in the school is one of these, with Spirou getting excellent grades in every subject taught by one of them (except gym class where the teacher is a man).
  • X-Men young students have an hard time deciding who is hotter teacher:
    • Storm looks like a goddess and is clearly shown to be gorgeous.

    • Cyclops, being a Chick Magnet, also has this going. Eva Bell nursed a crush on him for a cery long time.
    • Gambit. Suave Cajun thief with an air of mystery and a bad boy rep? Yep, he's your teacher, enjoy.

At the end of the issue, Principal Weatherbee fires her, telling her that teachers, like fine wine, get better with age. ...It was a different time.
  • What do you get when you take Dick Grayson and make him a gym teacher for teenage girls? You can guess. They literally named his butt cheecks! Spyral, the organisation that Dick is working for and that runs the school, played with things by saying Dick was gay.
  • Kunskapens Korridorer:
    • Jörgen is very quick to comment on Pia's "nice legs".
    • Then there is also a quick appearance from a very hot substitute teacher, Pernilla Jern. Micke is hardly even able to concentrate on what he's supposed to do, when he's going to interview her for the school paper.

    Fan Works 
  • In My Huntsman Academia, Glynda Goodwitch is considered drop dead gorgeous like the rest of the women at Beacon Academy. Izuku blurts this out while rambling about her on the airship and she's the first person Toshinori thinks of when talking about how beautiful the women at Beacon are.
  • A few of the staff members at the eponymous school in Skyhold Academy Yearbook are regarded this way by students (and other adults). It's particularly regarded as being true of Cullen Rutherford and Michel de Chevin.
  • In the Harry Potter/Twilight crossover fic The Secret Keeper, the sequel The Wisdom Seeker sees Professor McGonagall hire Esme Cullen as the new Muggle Studies professor after Voldemort's defeat in the hopes that having an attractive teacher will encourage students to take the subject and give Hogwarts a chance to undo the damage the Carrows may have done to the students’ views on muggles, without actually forcing the students to take it (Esme also arranges for Carlisle to assist a few of her lessons so that the female students don’t feel cheated).


  • In A Brother's Price Jerin mentions having had a crush on his teacher. He notes that his younger brother now shows the first signs of also having a crush on her. As she came to the farm to tutor the boys, who weren't allowed in a regular school due to their Gender Rarity Value, she is the only non-related woman both of them saw frequently, which Jerin suspects is part of the reason why they all have a crush on her. As he expresses no surprise about having found her pretty, she is likely a Hot Teacher.
  • From Holes, we have Miss Katherine, whom many of the townsfolk desired.
  • Mrs. Alowo in Someone Else's War.
  • Ms. Honey in Matilda is apparently so lovely that she inspires Matilda to compose a poem about her on the first day of class.

    • Professor Gilderoy Lockhart, the Defence Against the Dark Arts instructor in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is a narcissistic wizard celebrity admired by many, including Hermione Granger and Mrs. Weasley.
    • Firenze's human features are very handsome, prompting Parvati Patil and Lavender Brown to put aside their grief over Trelawney being fired to swoon over him in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
  • Mrs. Jeepers from the Bailey School Kids series.
  • Percy Jackson and the Olympians has an interesting example in Luke. He's the resident expert swordsman, so not exactly a typical teacher. One of the main cast's crush on him is practically a plot point and he tends to do things like pour entire bottles of water over himself while practicing with a bunch of hormonal teenagers.
  • Mr. Whitman from The Ruby Red Trilogy. Nearly all the girls in his class are in love with him.
  • 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.

A lot of the faculty have the hots for her as well, including Harold, whose attraction to her causes a decision that upends his life.

    Live-Action TV 
  • 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. Of course, 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.
    • Using Van Halen's "Hot For Teacher," the show also explores Puck's crush on Shelby Corcoran. Holly Holliday and the tenured Emma also count.

    [H]e is physically perfect, strong and courageous, a gorgeous dish.
  • Big Time Rush, episode "Big Time School of Rocque''. Miss Collins.
  • 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 Giles' love interest, Jenny Calender, the computer science teacher. Xander describes her as "reasonably dollsome, especially for someone in [Giles's] age bracket."
  • Leave It to Beaver had Beaver's teachers Ms. Canfield and Ms. Landers.
  • Prof. Slater in Community. She was officially ranked the seventh most attractive faculty member by the Dean.

  • 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.
  • Power Rangers Dino Thunder: Tommy Oliver. To his embarrassment, several of his female students are Hot for Teacher. Oy.
  • Degrassi has Ms. Daphne Hatzilakos who several boys found visually appealing, referred to her as Ms. Hotsauce behind her back. J.T Yorke, one of her students, had a crush on her and was thrilled when she gave him a detention for mocking her by putting balloons under his shirt.
  • In the season two premier of Smallville the characters meet their new biology teacher, extremely attractive Deriree Atkins, who is wearing very little and puts on a sex-education video. Clark tries to pay attention, but he keeps glancing at Ms. Atkins. Suddenly, the projector screen bursts into flames.

  • Miss McKenzie from the Busted song "What I Go to School For", based on one band member's dance teacher.
  • "Hot for Teacher" by Van Halen.
  • The Police song "Don't Stand So Close To Me" is actually a semi-autobiographical piece about from when lead singer Sting used to teach. "Young teacher/the subject/of schoolgirl fantasies", indeed.
  • The Italo Disco song "Sexy Teacher" by Check Up Twins.
  • "Mr Watson" by Kesha.
  • "Abigail Beecher" by Freddy 'Boom Boom' Cannon.
  • Pretty much the entire point of Rogue Traders' video for their song "Way to Go!"
  • Vocaloid Kiyoteru Hiyama, who is a teacher and a massive Bishōnen.

    Newspaper Comics 
  • In Zits, Jeremy has an attractive guidance counselor, and often has some rather explicit fantasies about her. (Not by choice; in one strip where this happens, when she asks him what's on his mind, he asks, "Can't we just talk about my schedule instead?")
  • In a May 2016 story arc in Curtis, the protagonist is surprised when girls who were formerly well-behaved straight-A students start getting sent to the principal's office. It later turns out that Mr. Washington, the new principal, is such a hunk that they're getting in trouble on purpose just to see him. (Curtis himself admits he "looks like a movie-star athlete brain surgeon billionaire.")

  • Touhou's Keine Kamishirasawa, Depending on the Artist.
  • Final Fantasy VIII's Quistis Trepe. It doesn't help that according to canon, she's eighteen years old - and started her SeeD career at fifteen and her teaching career at seventeen.

  • Chieri and Mamiko from Amorous Professor Cherry.
  • If she survives the events of Mass Effect 2, Jack becomes one of these by Mass Effect 3.
  • Aiko Yumi from HuniePop. Just look at her.
  • Yandere Simulator gives us Mida Rana, who's more or less a pastiche of this trope, since she's notorious for seducing pupils and she very frequently speaks in innuendos. In fact, in the full game, she won't be disgusted by Yan-chan taking panty shots of her fellow classmates, but she'll be more disappointed that she managed to catch her. She'll even be flattered if Yan-chan tries to take her panty shot. Naturally, Senpai will be easy prey for her unless you can stop it.
  • In The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel, a lot of her students do admit that Sara is indeed one of the hottest teachers at Thors. Of course, they also admit that she's one of the laziest and a slob when it comes to fixing her room. By Cold Steel III, one of her students, Rean, ends up becoming this trope where he becomes a teacher at the branch school. He's also joined by Randy and Michael according to their students.

  • Kureno from Tsuki Desu is apparently quite popular with female students to his voice and 'bad boy' image. Unsurprisingly his little brother that shares a Strong Family Resemblance to him is also quite popular.

    Western Animation

  • Miss Tinker, Tom's teacher from the french cartoon A Kind of Magic from Xilam.

    • Apparently both Principal Prickly and Miss Finster were in the `60s.
    • Then there was the music teacher in "The Voice".
  • Edna Krabappel from The Simpsons. She was presented as Bart's attractive teacher mostly in seasons 2 and 3 (she tried to seduce Mr. Bergstrom; Homer finds a provocative picture of her and tells Bart that he's going to start going to Parents' Night), but eventually this characterization faded, as she became more sarcastic and bitter.
  • South Park:
    • The episode "Tom's Rhinoplasty" has Ms. Ellen and all the boys in class find themselves inexplicably enamored with her.
    • Also there's Ms. Stephenson from the episode "Miss Teaches Bangs a Boy", an episode about statutory rape.
