Six of the more notorious teachers in literature

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog Melissa Albert tagged six of the more notorious teachers in literature, including:
Hannah Schneider (Special Topics in Calamity Physics).

Hannah’s a sexy, worldly film teacher who cares about her students. Well…she cares about six of her students, whom she’s molded into an impenetrable little clan of elite snobs. Aside from feeding them alcohol and giving them an (unwarranted) inflated sense of self, she takes them on an unsanctioned and ultimately treacherous field trip, then up and dies on them in mysterious and terrifying fashion (for the uninitiated: this is not a spoiler). That’s not even the worst of it…but go any further, and I will hit spoiler territory.
Read about the other teachers on the list.
