Exactly What It Says on the Tin, the Hot Teacher is a young and attractive person who pursues a career in education. Because Beauty Equals Goodness, he is almost always also a Cool Teacher, though Hentai series like to subvert this by making him evil or a sadist.
Male versions of this character tend towards wearing Stoic Spectacles, whereas female versions usually have a Hot Librarian appeal. While not exactly a teacher, the School Nurse also technically qualifies for this trope, being school staff and usually sharing a similar dynamic with the principal cast. School nurses, of course, tend to go for the Hot Scientist or Hospital Hottie look.
It should be noted that a Hot Teacher is not necessarily Hot for Student, though if the show does feature a student-teacher relationship, the elder party is very likely to be this trope. Similarly, many Hot Teachers find that quite a few of their opposite-sex students (or same, we're not picky) -- sometimes even the entire student base — are indeed hot for them. How this affects the students' ability to pay attention to the lessons is a good question, too.
Anime & Manga
- The trope image is Kuniumi Maitake from Lovely Complex, an impossibly over-the-top Parody of the trope.
- Ichimoku Ren and Hone-Onna spend most of the third season of Hell Girl disguised as such.
- Takahata D. Takamichi from Mahou Sensei Negima. Also the protagonist Negi, if you ask any girl or woman he's ever met.
- Apparently just to cover one more fetish we've briefly seen Evangeline in the outfit, at a chalkboard, lecturing Negi and Konoka.
- A somewhat unconventional example is Amamiya Akira from Ef: A Fairy Tale of the Two., who's got a very Bishonen design but is also clearly much older than most other examples.
- Yoko Littner briefly works as one after the timeskip in Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. There's no point in spoilering that anymore; because of all the fanservice omake pics floating around, anyone not familiar with the show only knows her as the Hot Teacher.
- Any number of hentai series feature a hot School Nurse who's all too willing to help the students with their sexual problems, and - as mentioned in the entry proper - another stock hentai character is the hot male teacher who gets a little carried away with alternatively punishing or rewarding his students.
- Nozomu Itoshiki of Sayonara, Zetsubou-sensei who has the requisite Stoic Spectacles. And for a female example, Chie Arai, who pretty much fills the school nurse role mentioned above (technically she's a guidance councilor).
- Any of the 5 teachers in Happy Lesson who adopt Chitose as his "mama".
- Mitsuka Yoshimine from DearS, Takeya's teacher, who has the kids practice english by reading erotic books she wrote and has her own section of home movies. She also falls under Hot for student as she believed that a study group was going to have an orgy, disappointed that she had dance classes.
- Kanda from Code Breaker
- Fujitaka Kinomoto, Yoshiyuki Terada and Kaho Mizuki (this one is a hot assistant teacher, and lampshaded by the whole class on her introduction) in Cardcaptor Sakura. All of them are involved to one degree or another in Hot for Teacher situations, whether played straight or subverted.
- Shinichi Namura and Ryouko Momoi from Marmalade Boy.
- Akiko Aoshika of Wolf Guy Wolfen Crest.
- Mathematics and homeroom teacher Vera Collins from Heroman. The drill hair is a little odd, but you have to admit, she's still sexy. What makes her stand out in the anime category is the fact that she's an American.
- Oh hai, Nyamo! Sorta fitting that a gym teacher would be in shape (and what a lovely shape, too...). Yukari too, though her personality can tend to turn people off.
- Being the master of the Hiten-Mitsurugi Ryu, 43-year old yet very handsome Hiko Seijuro should count.
- Yoshinoya from Hidamari Sketch
- Marie from Soul Eater.
- Raphael from Tenshi ni Narumon
- In The World God Only Knows, Keima's homeroom teacher Nikaido. Also Jun, the student teacher that Keima had to court in order to capture the runaway spirit in her.
- Mizuho Kazami from Please Teacher. That series milks the trope for all its worth and more.
- Shizuka Nekonome from Rosario + Vampire probably qualifies. An Omake reveals she doesn't wear a bra.
- Hinako of Ranma ½... half of the time. Whenever she isn't a Hot Teacher, she's in her other form that gives her the mind and body of a child.
- Azusa Kikukawa from Kurobara Alice would be this if she loosened up both in looks and attitude. Kouya still finds him beautiful.
- Nasujima-sensei from Durarara!! Even though he lusts after teenage schoolgirls. In fact, if it weren't for his perversion, he'd actually have fangirls. He's an older example, but is an example , nonetheless.
- Mr. Izumi from Zodiac PI, who happens to be a Bishonen teacher, very well liked by his pupils. Did I neglect to mention he also kidnaps his students?
- Keiju Tabuki from Mawaru Penguindrum.
- Ayane "Ayanecchi" Tezuka from Rouge Noir is the very rare protagonist example.
- Megane Koichi Azuma from Kimi to Boku
- Luuhi Jiston from Nyarko San becomes this later on in the light novels. Bonus points for being a Moe Anthropomorphism of Cthulhu.
- To LOVE-Ru has Mikado, the school nurse, and more recently Tearju-sensei.
- Highschool of the Dead has Shizuka, the school nurse, who is also The Ditz and takes Impossibly Low Neckline to a whole new level.
- The eponymous character from Indiana Jones has his fair share of Fangirls that attend the class he teaches at Barnett College, including one who wrote "I love you" on her eyelids.
- Kick-Ass has sexual fantasies about his MILF-quality English teacher. She seems at least somewhat aware of him staring at her cleavage, but nothing comes of it.
- Phil from The Hangover mixes this with Apathetic Teacher. You see him steal Field Trip money for his friend's bachelor party in Vegas and he seems to hate his students.
- Invoked by Satan (Elizabeth Hurley) in the 2000 remake of Bedazzled at an all-boys' school. The desk overflowing with apples says it all.
- Beth in The Descent mentions the fact that she is an English teacher.
- Elizabeth in Bad Teacher, especially when she needs to raise money.
- Amy's pretty too.
- Harry Potter: Remus Lupin (David Thewlis), Severus Snape (Alan Rickman, via Adaptational Attractiveness) and probably grown!Neville Longbottom (Matthew Lewis).
- Many fans enjoyed Spock (Zachary Quinto) rocking the black Starfleet Academy Instructor uniform in the new Star Trek movie.
- From Holes, we have Miss Katherine, whom many of the townfolk was after.
- Mrs. Alowo in Someone Elses War.
- Ms. Honey in Matilda is apparently so lovely that she inspires Matilda to compose a poem about her the first day of class.
- Pyramids has Lady T'malia, an infamous poisoner, teaching a class in the Assassin Guild. Which doubled as an extra challenge:
The boys were learning. As she talked they didn't watch her figure. They watched her fingers.
- In Doctor Who, the Tenth Doctor gets a stint at this when he's temporarily turned human in the two-parter "Human Nature"/"The Family of Blood", where he's a boarding school professor called John Smith.
- Will on Glee. "You'd be number one with a bullet."
- Big Time Rush, episode "Big Time School of Rocque. Miss Collins.
- iCarly: Miss Ackerman. Turns up to the Shay apartment in a smoking hot red dress, that causes Carly to say Woah, you look hot, and then Freddie to practically drool all over the floor when he shows up after. This was season 1 Freddie, as in barely hit puberty Freddie. That's how hot she was.
- In Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Robin Wood, the principal of Sunnydale High in season seven. (Heh heh, his name's wood.) Faith sleeps with him later in the season, and while she's not technically a student, she's on the team with the former students of Sunnydale High, so it sort of counts. Also Miss Calendar
- Substitute teacher Ms. French in the episode Teacher's Pet has all the boys drooling over her. Even Giles admits that she's "extremely well proportioned." Turns out she's taking virgin boys home, mating with them, and biting off their heads. Because she's actually a giant praying mantis.
- Leave It to Beaver had Beaver's teachers Ms. Canfield and Ms. Landers.
- Prof. Slater in Community. She was officially ranked the seventh most attractive faculty member by the Dean.
- This is the opinion that much of the female student body has of Coach Brock in Fifteen Love. School president Bates is generally too feared and/or loathed to get this treatment, but he's not hard on the eyes either.
- Chance from Noah's Arc is this, having a student and teachers aide pursue him as well as being fanservice in his own right the few times we see him shirtless. Note that though he is the oldest of the main four cast, hes still quite young for a college professor in his position.
- Ximena in Carrusel. She may dress conservatively and comfortably, but more than one boy has a crush on her. Also add Susana and Rene, who were attractive and had plenty of student fans.
- Power Rangers Dino Thunder: Tommy Oliver. To his embarrassment, several of his female students are Hot for Teacher. Oy.
- Miss McKenzie from the Busted song "What I Go to School For", based on one band member's dance teacher.
- "Hot for Teacher" by Van Halen.
- The Police song "Don't Stand So Close To Me" is actually a semi-autobiographical piece about from when lead singer Sting used to teach. "Young teacher/the subject/of schoolgirl fantasies", indeed.
- "Mr Watson" by Ke$ha.
- "Abigail Beecher" by Freddy 'Boom Boom' Cannon.
- Touhou's Keine Kamishirasawa, Depending on the Artist.
- Final Fantasy VIII's Quistis Trepe. It doesn't help that according to canon, she's eighteen years old - and started her SeeD career at fifteen and her teaching carrer at seventeen.
- Kyoko Minazuki from Rival Schools, who's both the school nurse and a chemistry teacher
- Chieri and Mamiko from Amorous Professor Cherry.
- Kaori from Crescendo is attractive when you first see her, but looks a tad severe with her hair in a bun and while wearing glasses. When she lets her hair down (literally) and sheds the glasses, she's downright stunning.
- If she survives the events of Mass Effect 2, Jack becomes one of these by Mass Effect 3.
- Lust Grimm has Succubus Teacher, the principal of a school for succubi.

- According to supplementary Fate/stay night materials, Lord El-Melloi II (aka Waver Velvet) has been voted by the female students of the Clock Tower as the teacher they most want to have sex with.

- In Powerpuff Girls Doujinshi, Sensei Jack. Yep, that Jack...
- In Magick Chicks, a magic teacher in the all-girl school, Mr. Leandro Delatorre (note that in *C series Bishie Sparkles may indicate metaphorical effect-on-the-observer or an enchantment just as well). Jacqui instantly and visibly melts down.
- Dangerously Chloe had a moment when Chloe infiltrated the school as a "substitute French teacher" to help Teddy. And... uh... she is a succubus, and this shows even when she shapeshifts horns and wings away.
- In Exterminatus Now the page named "Hot For Teacher" tells us that Virus took a Demonology class because it was taught by Inquisitor Bexley. Unfortunately, that's also where his attention was at the time.

- Miss Tinker, Tom's teacher from the french cartoon A Kind of Magic from Xilam.
- Danny Phantom episode "My Brother's Keeper" introduces us to Penelope Spectra's human disguise. Okay, so she's technically a guidance counciler/psychiatrist, but she's hot and works in a school, so it's close enough.
- One-shot character Mr. E from Recess
- Arguably, Miss Grotke, though "cute teacher" would be more like it
