Harry Potter Moment of the week is a weekly meme hosted over at Uncorked Thoughts. The idea is to share one favorite moment, magical item, character, spell, quote, object from the books, films or J.K.Rowling herself! For information on how to join up & for upcoming topics, click here.
I think this one might be obvious on my part, considering all the love he got during last week's MotW but my favorite teacher has got to be Remus Lupin.
Not only do we share a birthday (it's true!! eeep!) but he is easily the best DADA teacher Hogwarts has ever know! I adored his approach to teaching, his knowledge and his humor - especially considering how tragic his life is :*( Specifically, his hand in Harry's education and general well-being brings so many feels I can hardly stand it. Oh and isn't it too cool that a Maurauder ended up teaching at Hogwarts?! :D
Remus Lupin - March 10th 1960-May 2nd 1998. Wereworlf, Maurauder, Teacher, Hero.
And, since it's usually my style to always give more than one answer, I couldn't resist giving a shout out to another brilliant teacher: Albus Dumbledore
I still remember reading the first books in the series and already hoping that Dumbledore would eventually either teach the students an advanced class, or even just Harry. Anything! This man has SO MUCH wisdom...I couldn't wanting more. It's one of the reasons that Half Blood Prince is one of my favorites of the whole series ♥
Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore 1881-1997. Mentor, Order of the Phoenix, Teacher, Legend.
