Harry Potter MotW #7

Harry Potter Moment of the Week 

Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a meme hosted over at Uncorked Thoughts. The idea is to share a favorite moment, magical item, character, spell, quote, object from the books, films or J.K.Rowling herself! Upcoming topics & how to join here.

 Favorite Teacher

I think this one might be obvious on my part, considering all the love he got during last week's post 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 known!  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 Marauder ended up teaching at Hogwarts?! :D

Remus Lupin - March 10th 1960-May 2nd 1998.  Werewolf, Marauder, 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 Founder, Teacher, Legend.


  1. Great picks, Lupin was close to be picked by me as well but then I passed on him. He was a great teacher nevertheless and I really liked him a lot.
    As for Dumbledore, he's amazing and I loved him. He was so kind and wise and also a little badass.

  2. That is SO awesome that you and Lupin share a birthday! He's one of my absolute favorite teachers, too (so hard to choose just one!); loved him from the moment Harry, Ron, and Hermione met him on the Hogwarts Express. Great pick, Micheline!

  3. Awww this is such a beautiful post. The dates of their lives make me feel so emotional, why can't they still be alive?! :( I completely agree with you on both of these characters too. I just wish they were real people.

  4. Those dates always makes me feel like crying, haha. I agree that Lupin was a wonderful teacher and Dumbledore was a genius <3

  5. Lupin is an excellent choice, Micheline! (As is Dumbledore! ;) And it's so neat that Lupin is your fav and you happen to share birthdays! Thanks for sharing!

  6. I love these posts. Lupin is probably my favorite teacher too. Every time I read these posts I want to go back and read all of the books again. The last time I re-read all of them was the month before the last movie came out. I loved doing that!! I wish I had time to do that again.

  7. Yes, absolutely these are the obvious picks! I would feel so extremely fortunate to have these two gents as teachers and learn from their wisdom. It's SO cool that you share a birthday with Remus!
