5 Teachers You Wish You Had During Online Learning

During these crazy times of quarantine, those of us still in school are having a pretty rough experience trying to complete our assignments. However, we can’t give up hope just yet! Here are some amazing fictional teachers we wish we had to help get us through this.

1. Mr. Keating from ‘Dead Poet’s Society’

If there’s anyone who can inspire us and keep our heads up during this time, it’s Mr. Keating. His invigorating lessons are enough to keep our minds off of things and to look forward to the future. He’d probably have us all stand on our chairs and recite poems from our bedrooms. Too bad the students started their Dead Poet’s Society club before Zoom was invented!

2. Ms. Frizzle from ‘The Magic School Bus’

Although we’re not supposed to travel (unless it’s essential), the innovative and wacky Ms. Frizzle probably has a few tricks up her sleeve to keep online learning refreshing and exciting! No videos or Powerpoints… instead, lessons with her exotic pets and jam sessions with her various musical instruments. No field trips necessary! Just imagine how chaotic her house must look during sessions.

3. Miss Honey from ‘Matilda’

In these desperate and confusing times, who doesn’t need a calm, nurturing presence? Imagine her reading to you in her soothing speaking voice, knowing that everything is going to be okay, and this will all be over soon. I wish she’d adopt me!

4. Ms. Norbury from ‘Mean Girls’

We all need a little extra “push” and motivation right now, and who else besides Ms. Norbury could keep us from slipping too far into the black hole that is senioritis? Although she can be a little disorganized, she’s trying her best like the rest of us. Her wisecracks and “real talk” life advice will keep you present and entertained (even if you hate math).

5. Professor McGonagall from ‘Harry Potter’

Although she’s a little more old-school, she’d sure keep us entertained with her informative material and spells to master. Prepare for a heavy workload, as she is to be less forgiving during these hectic times. However, transfiguring and shapeshifting are sure-fire ways to keep us entertained (just don’t go too crazy)!

Five Effervescent Twilight Memes

Die hard fan or total casual, the Twilight meme renaissance is truly a gift to all of us. Whether you have thoughts on Stephanie Meyer’s connection to the fandom, Edward’s first reaction to Bella, or subverting the hate by listing things that are actually WORSE love stories than twilight, there’s a lot to like here. And this article contains the creme de la creme of all this hilarious nonsense.

 

You Can’t Just Ask People Why They Sparkle

Isn’t this… just cannon? Like, Edward Cullen is the kind of legend you could ask anyone about at that school. Sure, some of them might be like… he’s dating his step sister… but most of them would say stuff like this. And wasn’t he basically in a car commercial? Look how pretty this car is! Only a profoundly emotional vampire can slow this down! Honestly though, I don’t know why everyone isn’t more obsessed with Rosalie or Alice. They’re so mean and so nice respectively! There’s so much to unpack.

 

I Don’t FIND That Very Surprising

Don’t panic if you don’t get this – that’s really the whole joke. Also, go watch A Very Potter Musical right this second. You will have ZERO regrets. Unlike Cedric. Ok, I’m done, but what house would Edward Cullen be in, do you think? Is there a consensus? Honestly though, Cedric Diggory didn’t distract me in Twilight. All that distracted me was Shark Boy. Does anyone else remember that movie? Did I dream it? Every time Jacob came on screen, all I could think was “I broke my fiiiin!” I can’t be alone. Please.

 

Because Reasons

I actually have a lot of question about Carlisle’s decisions, but I also read somewhere that he was only 23 when he died, and as someone who’s 23 currently, that explains a lot. Still, there were a few moments I questioned, and this is definitely one of them. I don’t really remember if we know how great Carlisle is at not killing people when this scene takes place, but either way, Edward seems like the WORST option. I mean? All he wants is to drain her dry? Is this even a romantic gesture? Also, according to Wikipedia, you can’t suck venom from a wound.

 

Effervescent

God, I cannot even imagine how someone came up with this, or how it seems SO in character. Twilight was guilty of a certain amount of thesaurus abuse, certainly, but on a more fundamental level, Edward Cullen was such a total and absolute weirdo. How did we not see it before? Like, honestly, how did we not all read the first book and think… effervescent. Sure, he might not BE the most effervescent, but look at the snail on that mood board! What other word could you possibly use? Especially if you were both 17 and a hundred something.

 

Incredible Advice

I could never put my finger on the dangers in twilight, or their chronology. Do things escalate? Or just oscillate? Listen, I’m not hating – Buffy had the same problem. It’s hard to turn up the stakes when most of your characters are immortal. But like, after the threat of turning accidentally in the first book, it’s like, no! This time we might DIE! Look at all these things that can ACTUALLY kill us. Let’s flirt with them, just for funsies.
