This week’s topic for The Broke and the Bookish‘s Top Ten Tuesday is “Ten Characters Who Would Make Great Leaders…” We’re allowed to create our own spin on it, so I’m going with characters that would be awesome teachers!
BADDASS FIGHTING SKILLS
Alosa, Chaol & Celaena definitely seem like three people who can give us some good lessons in handling weapons. Pretty sure it wouldn’t be for the weak, but it’d be awesome anyway!
A female teacher with rainbow-colored hair to teach us how to hack? Yes!
Wade to drown us in all geeky and nerdy knowledge he possesses? Yes!
LIFE ISN’T EASY AND BEAUTIFUL FOR EVERYONE
Starr is definitely the best person to tell us more about racism and the things she has to deal with on a daily basis. If not someone else she knows. Since The Hate U Give was a slam-in-the-face book to me, I’m sure it’d have the same effect in a classroom.
Cleo Jones is bound to enlighten us about her struggles with weight-loss. There are a lot of people out there who don’t realize it’s a daily battle you need a whole lot of stubbornness for and she’s definitely someone who’d try and motivate everyone who needs it.
Kimberley Chang [Girl in Translation] surely will tell us more about how it is to move abroad, barely knowing the language and having to find her way. Fighting for every second of warmth, battling poverty by working and going to school at the same time. This, again, was an eye-opener to me.
As for Jenny Lawson, she’s the author you need to read if you want to know what it’s like for someone with a bunch of mental illnesses. She sees the good in everything, tries to laugh off the bad stuff. Reading her books, you’ll find yourself laughing but, at the same time, realizing how horrible it is as well.
MAGIC – BECAUSE I HAD TO
Of course, I can say Harry Potter, Hermione Granger – every character in Harry Potter, really. But we’ll all hope to get that Hogwarts letter for the rest of our lives anyway.
I would, however, also like to get to travel with The Night Circus, have Celia and Marcus teach us more about how they created everything.
And, let’s be honest, I simply want Rhysand as a teacher so we have at least one delicious being to drool all over.
Any other teachers you would’ve added?
Or are there teachers on here that you’d rather NOT see?
