Best Teachers/Staff Members at Hogwarts


The Top Ten

1 Minerva McGonagall Minerva McGonagall

McGonagall is a bad@$$. Period.

2 Albus Dumbledore Albus Dumbledore Professor Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore is a fictional character in J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series.

UMM HELLO! The best wizard ever and the headmaster and the best person. There aren't necessarily extremely specific reasons why he is the best because he just is.

I agree, because he's an exceptionally powerful wizard that he is a one true fear of Volsemort.

They got a great actor for him! And I have so much respect for him... - keycha1n

Just look at that beard. How can you say no to that?

Good old Hagrid - WinchesterGirl26

Really? Number three? It should be Hagrid, Snape, McGonagall, Albus. and Hagrid brought Harry from privet drive, Hagrid was unique, Hagrid had awesome pets.

4 Severus Snape Severus Snape Severus Snape is a fictional character in J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. He is characterised as a person of great complexity, whose coldly sarcastic and controlled exterior conceals deep emotions and anguish.

He is awesome. He saves Harry so many times. Severus is one of the most misunderstood characters. Even Professor Dumbledore trusts him!

The hero protecting everyone from the shadow. - Goku02

5 Remus Lupin Remus Lupin

Best teacher ever. His lessons are always interesting and educational. - Goku02

True, he was only there for one year, but it was a good one.

Remus Lupin has got to be the best teacher ever because his lessons aren't just educational they are also fun and exciting. in my personal opinion I think Remus Lupin is the best Hogwarts teacher ever!

Best boy.

6 Gilderoy Lockhart

I don't think he was that good of a teacher. He was an arrogant idiot. - Minecraftcrazy530

He's this fat pig of a show off. - DontMakeARookieMistake

7 Pomona Sprout
8 Filius Flitwick
9 Sybill Trelawney

Not the best... at all... and she kinda freaked me out, but she definitely should be above Gilderoy Lockhart.

10 Silvanus Kettleburn

Okay, this guy is ridiculously underrated. But he's awesome! He's a little bit insane, but still pretty lovable. During the Battle of Hogwarts, since he couldn't participate (he had about sixty prosthetics from fooling around with dangerous creatures), he went to the attic and threw his collection of Flobberworms down from the window onto the heads of Death Eaters.
Like, YAS.

The Contenders

11 Armando Dippet

Well he was Tom Riddle aka Voldy's teacher. And he got rid of the first chamber of secrets opening

12 Horace Slughorn

I was surprised to see that his name was not here. He was the only one that knew about horcruxes and without him Harry wouldn't have been able to know Voldemort's secrets. He was also a great potion master and was considered as a powerful wizard

Thirst for power is a sign of a great teacher.
