10 'Game Of Thrones' Characters As Professors

10 'Game Of Thrones' Characters As Professors

They'll Teach us How to Play the Game of Life.

Those of us who are currently in college or have recently graduated can distinctly remember our experiences with our professors. Whether they be good or bad they defined us, and maybe even for life. In the world of Game of Thrones, decisions defined the course of things in Westros and beyond.

These changes were due to key players in the game making decisions that would affect all the people. This is much like how our professors shape us. So this week, we're going to look at what type of professor 10 Game of Thrones characters would be.

1. Littlefinger

Littlefinger is the professor that is super nice in person, but when you get your grade back you aren't so sure about that anymore. He is the professor that is secretly plotting to fail you so you have to take it again next year. It could be because you're a redhead, or he just enjoys failing you that much.

2. Jon Snow

Jon Snow is the professor that is very stoic and likes to stick to the syllabus way too much. You probably wouldn't find him teaching Philosophy as it is too debatable. Sciences or Math would be more for Jon as they are pure fact. He also has a bit of an obsession with genetics.

3. Maester Pycelle

Maester Pycelle's class would be the one where you'd catch up on all that lost sleep. He'd be that monotone professor that makes you glance up at the clock wondering when the torture will end. Maybe he does this on purpose to avoid a student revolt. Who truly knows.

4. Varys

Varys is the mean girl of professors. You won't have to tell him you were partying instead of doing his assignment this weekend. He already knows and has told every professor and student he's met about your shenanigans. Have fun in classes next week.

5. Cersei Lannister

Cersei is the professor that everybody hates just because she blatantly hates everyone herself. She purposely gives assignments off the syllabus just to make sure you only have time for her class. Because her class is the only class that matters, right? Don't think so? She'll gladly go out of her way to tell you how wrong you are. You'll be chained to a desk forever.

6. Daenerys Targaryen

Daenerys is the professor that has always seemed a little quirky. She definitely has some inventive teaching methods, and if you walk away from her class knowing nothing you likely won't survive long. It's best to pay attention in this course as she does not give second chances easily.

7. Tyrion Lannister

Tyrion is the professor that curses openly in the classroom and shows videos in class that most others would shy away from. You can openly talk about your drunk exploits, and send Snapchats the whole time. You never get through a lecture though, because it always comes back to stories from his college days. You always get out of class 10 to 15 minutes early.

8. Ramsay Bolton

Ramsay is the professor that scares the shit out of you and appears randomly in the hall staring at you. Everyone is pretty convinced he's on a most wanted list somewhere, but you'd all be too afraid to ask. You try really hard to pass his class so you don't have to take it again, but it's hard when he keeps changing his expectations all the time.

9. Ser Loras Tyrell

Ladies, don't expect to get much work done in Ser Loras' class. You'll be too distracted by the wavy locks and the fantasies in your daydreams. That's okay with you though, because you'll get to take his class over again and stare at his perfection for another 3 to 4 months. However, these efforts would all be fruitless.

10. Samwell Tarly

Sam is the professor who is willing to go to extreme lengths for his students. He will set appointments outside of class, and help you get books out of the collections only professors can access. Sam is super understanding if you can't get your assignment in on time and will talk to you about a proper extension.

Let's Talk More About Lori Laughlin Facing Up To 20 Years In Prison When Brock Turner Got 6 Months

And he was released three months early for 'good behavior'... after sexually assaulting an unconscious girl behind a dumpster.


To start, Lori Laughlin messed up royally, and I don't condone her actions.

If you live under a rock and are unaware of what happened to the "Full House" star, here's the tea:

Lori Laughlin and husband Mossimo Giannulli — and like 50 other celebrity parents — were found guilty of conspiracy to commit fraud, and paid a $1 million bail on conspiracy to commit mail fraud, and honest services fraud. You don't need to know what these mean except that she paid $500,000 to get her two daughters, Bella and Olivia Jade Giannulli.

I know you're wondering why they did it — tbh I am too — however, these parents paid the University of Southern California to give admission to her daughters in through the rowing team on campus, despite neither one of them actually playing the sport ever in their life.

Yeah, Aunt Becky messed up and should face punishment, but why is she facing up 20 years when men like Brock Turner are sentenced only six months for raping an unconscious woman behind a dumpster at Stanford?

I hate to bring up the gender card, but I'm pulling it: Why is Lori Laughlin — a woman who with bad judgement who used money to give an upper-hand to her entitled daughters — face more prison time than a man who willingly raped a woman who wasn't in a right state of mine (or any at all!) behind a dumpster of all places.

The answer? Because the system is a mess.

Yeah, Aunt Becky paid for her daughters to get into a school, giving disadvantages to students actually deserving and wanting to attend a college. Her act was immoral, and ultimately selfish, but it doesn't even compare to what Brock Turner did, and it doesn't even effect others as much his rape survivor.

The most that will happen to the Giannulli girls is an expulsion and a temporary poor reputation, however, Emily Doe (the alias of the survivor) will feel the consequences of the attack forever.

There should have been a switch:

Lori Laughlin and the Target guy should have had to pay other students tuition/student debt while facing prison time, while Brock Turner should have had to face over 20 years with more consequences.

But, that'll never happen because our system sucks and society is rigged. I guess our society would prefer a rapist walking around more so a woman who made a poor choice by paying for her daughters to go to a college.

Teaching Is An Amazing Career, It's More Powerful Than We Give It Credit For

Teaching is a career that is heavily overlooked — it is much more powerful than people realize.


When it comes to teaching, it's not always easy or fun. But, let me ask you this: what career really is easy or fun all the time? Being challenged can beneficial. Otherwise, you are just going through the same routine over and over. Teaching will definitely keep you on your toes because there's always something happening.

People seem to think teachers just lecture on information that they hope their students remember for the test. You know what? Those people are dead wrong. Teaching is more than that. Teaching means having the passion and drive to educate children. Teaching is turning something dull to something that students will find more interesting and enjoyable.

Teaching is also about providing tools and other resources for students in order for them to succeed, especially the ones who tend to struggle in school. Being able to give those tools to help them accomplish their goals is extremely rewarding. A teacher will work with a student who is behind on his/her reading skills to have him/her be right at the level he/she needs to be by the end of the school year. Not many jobs provide a reward quite like guiding a student, if not more, to success.

Although it focuses on academics, teaching is not just about that. Sure, being an effective teacher is key, but there are other aspects that are just as significant. As a teacher, you also have to connect with your students. Knowing your students on a personal level is so important. The connection can build respect that will, in turn, help them to succeed. Plus, students spend more time with you on a day-to-day basis than they do with their parents — isn't that frightening? So, you have to be able to support them and let them know them that you are there for them if they are having trouble.

Additionally, that connection you build with your students can last a lifetime. You can witness the growth of a student right in front of you. In fact, I am still very close with some of my teachers from elementary school. Many of them inspired me to become a teacher. Because of those great bonds I built, I had the opportunity to intern with some of my past teachers, which was a rewarding experience for everyone. Being able to develop such a connection with someone so different in age is something that is so powerful and that doesn't come with many other careers.

Teaching is so amazing. There are so many layers and beautiful aspects to it. Again, it can be difficult, but it's also a lot of fun. Not many people can say they have fun and laugh every day at work. I also truly believe that not many other people can say their careers provide as rewarding of a feeling as teaching does. To be able to make such a difference in someone's life is an incredible thing. Teaching is my passion. I know teaching will not be only gratifying but something that will bring me pure joy.
