Everyone has that one teacher who inspired us to greater heights, pushed us to achieve our dreams, and made a difference in our lives.

Then there are those awful teachers who made going to class such a terrible pain. Don’t you wish you could go back in time and assassinate those teachers?  In Assassination Classroom, the class of 3E is trying to do exactly that to their teacher, Koro Sensei, because he’ll destroy the Earth if they don’t assassinate him by the end of their school term. When the movie begins, he’s already destroyed three quarters of the Moon!

But your situation probably isn’t as terrible as all that (if it, I’m evacuating the planet). Here are seven types of teachers who are worthy of an assassination attempt, even if they aren’t planning to destroy the Earth.

1) The teacher who plays favourites

We’ve all seen that teacher who has his pets in class. They might be the worst students in that subject, but they can do no wrong in that teacher’s eyes. Every action garners endless praise, and every word earns an adoring gaze. The rest of the class feels like a nuisance to that teacher. How about spending more time teaching and less time admiring your favourites, cher?

2) The teacher who picks on you

A step up from the teacher that plays favourites – instead of fawning over his pets, this teacher twists your ear every time he passes you, or chooses to single you out when the whole class is talking. Maybe you did something to offend him early in the year, and you now have 40 weeks to pay for it. That anti-Koro Sensei knife from Assassination Classroom is looking pretty tempting now! In the film, the government actually designs a special type of rubber knife that will hurt nobody except their teacher, Koro Sensei. Talk about vindictiveness!

3) The grumpy teacher

Another step up from the teacher who picks on you – except that she picks on everyone. She’s invariably an older teacher, and behaves like every rheumatic ache in her body is a result of young rascals like you running around the class. So keep quiet, go back to your seats, and do your homework!

4) The teacher who knows nothing

More often than not, this is the relief teacher who really wasn’t expecting to come in and teach today. She only knows as much as the lesson plan tells her, and any question that’s not in today’s syllabus is met with a nervous stammer. Sometimes, the class has to teach her how to answer the question correctly. It’s not her fault she’s here, but why couldn’t we just have a free period and play instead of wasting everyone’s time?

5) The teacher who loves surprise tests and corrections

Then there’s that really eagle-eyed teacher who spots every comma you missed out and every “i” that you forgot to dot. It’s not enough to just write the correct word on top – he insists that you write out the whole sentence three times! And after the whole class has spent half a period on corrections, he springs the surprise test for the other half. Life’s just not fair. Where are those assassination weapons again?

6) The teacher who’s never around

She’s probably the kind of teacher who maximises maternity leave and spends most of her time making new children. Or it could be that she’s in poor health and is on MC frequently, which is more forgiveable. Needless to say, the class probably isn’t doing very well in subject because there’s no teacher to teach us.

7) The teacher who cannot be wrong

And then finally, you have the teacher who made a mistake and can’t admit it. Maybe he spelt “embarrassed” wrongly but forced all of you to do corrections. Or maybe she got the Pythagoras rule wrongly and all of your calculations have to be redone according to the wrong rule. You know that when you’re not looking, they’ll secretly give you the marks and undo their mistakes. But why couldn’t they just admit it here?

Nevertheless, no matter how much we feel like assassinating our teachers sometimes, we still love them all. Just like how 3E loves Koro Sensei in Assassination Classroom. So don’t take it to heart, teachers, sometimes the desire to assassinate you is borne out of an unbreakable teacher-student bond.

Don’t believe me? Then check out Assassination Classroom at Golden Village Cinemas now to see how you can still love, and want to assassinate, your teacher!
