Ten Characters That Would Make Great Teachers

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list is all about leaders. We’re thinking about the characters that would make a great leader in one way or another. I decided to go for teachers, as being a teacher myself I recognise (I hope!) what makes a decent teacher.

Atticus Finch– He has to be one of the best possible options. I loved his morality.

Matilda Wormwood– The ultimate bookworm.

Hermione Granger– She would work people hard. A fount of knowledge.

Molly Weasley- She’d be so caring and fiercely protective.

Mary Poppins– Incredibly organised and practically perfect!

Katniss Everdeen– She wouldn’t be allowed to hurt the children, obviously, but she’s loyal and dedicated. Skills you definitely need in order to teach.

Tris Prior– Again, she’d have to be careful but her selflessness and courageousness would stand her in good stead.

Wendy Darling– She might be a bit of annoying teacher but there’s no denying that she’d be great at looking after young ones.

Dorothy Gale– I like how Dorothy inspires confidence in others.

Jane Bennet– I had some help with this one, from my sister Beth! Jane is patient, gentle, loyal and is great with children. (Thanks Beth!)

Top Ten Characters I Would Want With Me On A Deserted Island


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they come up with a list for us to complete. This week the topic is Top Ten Characters I Would Want With Me On A Deserted Island (pick based on however you want…skills they would bring, their company…or pure hotness factor :P)

So here are mine in no particular order!  My deserted island would certainly be an interesting one with these characters. Would they clash? Would they get on? Who knows!


Katniss EverdeenThe Hunger Games– For obvious reasons. I’m pretty sure she’s going to be on a LOT of people’s lists this week.

CinderThe Lunar Chronicles- Purely for her strength and general awesomeness!

Juliette Shatter Me– I think it would be pretty interested to see how she interacted with Katniss and Cinder.


Dean HolderHopeless/Losing Hope– I connected with his character so much through Hopeless and Losing Hope, so he just needs to be with me really.

Hermione Granger and Luna Lovegood- Harry Potter– I bet Hermione would know some amazing spells to help us through. I think Luna is an amazing character and I’d find her fascinating.


Poppy Sinclair and her boyfriend MichaelDead Jealous/Dead Silent- I think I’d get on really well with Poppy and her boyfriend, so they’re welcome to join me!

Nimira and Erris- Magic Under Glass– Both adorable characters. I’d love to know more about them.

What characters would you want on a deserted island with you? Have we got any the same this week? Let me know! Feel free to leave a link to your Top Ten post and I’ll stop by!
