I’ve been thinking a lot about teachers lately, thanks to the state of California constantly slashing the education budget. My sister is a third grade teacher, so I see firsthand how these cuts are affecting both her and her students, and it bums me out. With that on my mind, I decided to come up with a list of some of my favorite famous female teachers. There’s Annie Sullivan, Christa McAuliffe, and Maria Montessori. From television and books, there’s Miss Frizzle from The Magic School Bus, as well as Miss Bliss from the Saved by the Bell prequel Good Morning, Miss Bliss and Edna Krabappel from The Simpsons. One teacher that stood out for some reason was Ms. Coleman from the Baby-Sitters Club Little Sister Series. I didn’t really read that series (I devoured the regular BSC books), but I think she’s so clear in my mind because I was in awe of someone who could spend all day in a small room with Karen Brewer and not gouge their eyes out. I know I’m missing a ton of awesome teachers, so share your picks! -Intern Catherine
