The 6 Types of Teachers You'll Have in High School

Ah, teachers.

You'll adore some, detest a few and feel totally indifferent about a lot of them.

If you're heading into high school this year and worried about what to expect from your teachers, we've got you covered. Below are the six types of teachers you'll definitely have in high school:

1. The Laid-Back Teacher

This type of teacher rarely ever assigns homework or major projects, their tests and quizzes are usually open-notes and everyone passes their class. More often than not, they're a coach for some sport, so they couldn't care less that they're supposed to teach your science, math or history. Be prepared to watch a ton of movies in their class. It will seem great at first, but then you realize you didn't actually learn anything due to their chill nature.

2. The Rule-Abiding Teacher

The polar opposite of the laid-back teacher, the rule-abiding teacher is as strict as can be. Chances are they'll assign you endless hours of homework on the first day and don't really care that you have a billion other things going on. Their class is tough to pass, especially with their ruthless teaching style. But on the plus side, you will learn a lot in their class. They will bestow knowledge upon you that will be branded into your memory forever.

3. The Crush-Worthy Teacher

You're bound to have that one teacher you can't help but swoon over. They'll be ridiculously attractive and you won't be able to concentrate at all while they're teaching. But you won't be the only one who feels this way, so they'll end up being the topic of conversation between you and your besties multiple times.

4. The Young Teacher

This teacher just got their credentials and are way too bright-eyed and busy-tailed for their own good. They'll have a huge grin plastered across their face as soon as you waltz into their classroom, eager to start their curriculum for the day. You'll find their positivity annoying, but remember that they do mean well. Soon enough, they'll realize they're in over their head and tone it down a bit. At least, hopefully.

5. The BFF Teacher

Every high school has that teacher everyone adores. Seriously, not a single student has anything bad to say about them. You'll be able to turn to them for advice and chat with them about virtually anything. They may be a strict teacher, but once the bell rings, they're basically like another student. They probably won't be the best teacher you'll ever have, but your friendship will last a lifetime. Just remember to keep in touch not only throughout high school, but beyond.

6. The Inspirational Teacher

You're bound to have that one teacher who changes your life for the better. Sure, they'll teach the curriculum, but they'll also instill some wisdom in you that's more meaningful than math, science or English. You'll always feel so inspired after leaving their class, especially because they'll push you to be the best version of yourself possible. Without a doubt, you will never forget them and all they taught you.
