10 Books With Great Teachers

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! Whether you are a teacher who needs to regenerate and a reminder of why you are so important or a reader who wants to remember the inspirational teachers that made an impact in their lives, here are ten great books that perfectly portray why teachers deserve a whole week to themselves:


Matilda by Roald Dahl

Miss Honey supports Matilda both academically and emotionally when no one else in Matilda’s life see any value in her.


Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

Miss Stacy’s teaching methods may have been unorthodox and different compared to other teachers but that didn’t stop her from being the role model and mentor Anne needed.


Villette by Charlotte Bronte

While escaping a tragic past, Villette enters a new life as a teacher in a boarding school, which leads her to adventure and romance.


Wonder by R.J. Palacio

Mr. Browne’s determination for Auggie Pullman can provide any inspiration for current and prospective teachers.


Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling

Professor Dumbledore is so wise and insightful that you wish you had him as your teacher.


The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie by Muriel Spark

Although Miss Jean Brodie was betrayed in the end, her determination and perseverance to do well by her students never diminished.

Jane Eyre

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

Jane Eyre’s passion and strongly principled values are characteristics that make her a favorite teacher with all of her students.


Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte

Agnes Grey is a governess for an English gentry family where she has to deal with spoiled children and unappreciative families. Sound familiar?


Emma by Jane Austen

Miss Taylor may have become Mrs. Weston but that doesn’t stop her from instilling some lessons into Emma after she stops being her governess.


South Riding by Winifred Holtby

Sarah Burton ruffles some feathers as she is the new headmistress at the local girls’ school. Her pacifist and feminist ideals may not match with the conservative locals but that doesn’t stop her from teaching the girls that they can do anything.

I was born and raised in New York. I still live in New York but kind of sick of the city and one day I wish to move to the UK.I have a Masters degree in Library Science and I currently work in a special collections library. I loved books ever since I was a little girl. Through the hard times in my life, my love for books has always gotten me through. Just entering another world different from my own intrigues me. As long as I am entering in another universe, I like to create my own as well. I love to write and hopefully I will be able to complete a novel.
