Hot profs

This story from the Village Voice looks at websites on which students rate profs on their hotness (among other attributes).

Jumping into the wayback machine, I'd give a "he's smoking hot" rating to my Italian professor, Roberto, the Florentine dish. Wonder where he is now? Probably grandfather to scads of little Fiorentinos back in the home country. Sigh. He was so cute that I used to spend 20 hours a week in the language lab, listening to those "repeat after me" tapes just on the off-change I might see him. Benefit of that: I made all A's in Italian and still have the occasional dream in the language. (I also did pretty well speaking it on trips to Italy, where I was informed right away that I had a Florentine accent.)

Only once on a student evaluation did anyone ever give me a "she's hot." And thank you, Nigel, for the nod. It does the old gal good to think you were checking out my ass while I was scrawling on the dry-erase board in class.

Do a prof a favor and give him or her a "hot" rating on the rate-a-prof sites. We like it.

ooooohhhh yeah! I remember him fondly. I would sit in the front of the room, my head propped up by my left arm while I stared at him longingly. Sigh.

We do indeed like to be rated as "hot!!"

Whee!

My best professor crush was a very handsome Iranian man named Mr. Benakdarian who taught us philosophy. Thus he was dressed in all black, all the time, with those lovely Dieter glasses. HMmmmm. Here's to the swarthy men of our unrequited past!!

The only instructor I ever had a crush on was my third grade homeroom teacher—if that even counts. I went to a parochial school with predominately nuns teaching. No hot teachers in high school, and had all men as Profs in college (business school) except for one butt ugly woman accounting prof. Thank goodness there were a lot of hot chicks in my classes.

I did write a love letter to that third grade teacher before school was out for the summer. So, in effect, I have given a “hot” rating.

Unfortunately, I never had a hot prof, male or female, and I have a Masters. You'd think in 6 years someone would be attractive, but no. Maybe I should go for the PhD...or not.

HAha! I wonder if there's one for highschools. Well, I can only think of 3 teachers who actually are hott. And 2 others I'd say are hott because I like 'em so much.

My sophomore year I asked out my health professor b/c she was a hottie. She looked like she couldn't believe I had the guts to ask out a professor while still taking the class. She told me to come back next semester.

While I don't have the coveted pepper from "Rate my professors," I do have a student comment on there that says "In his own unique way, he's one sexy dude." Given that I'm 6'4" and 300+ lbs., I'll count that.

As a grad student, I thought my psych TA was pretty hot. She must have thought the same since she asked me to attend her birthday party after that semester. I knew for sure when we made out at her party.

Does a student taking off her shirt in front of me while looking directly at me constitute a "hot" rating? Of course, that was when I taught high school, not college.

Btw--I turned around and walked away.

Ms. Ordinary,

I don't know what fields you're in, but think Political Science. And law. Straight A's in my major concentration (Congressional Politics) and an American Jurisprudence Award in Evidence because I fought my way to the front row no matter HOW many people were in the class. Nothing like an incentive to impress the prof.

Evidence. Mmmmmm.

Yeah, I've gotten "she's hot" under additional comments on the evals from time to time, and my favorite of all time: "Meg Spohn is a stone fox." Pah-ha-haaaa! Great stuff.

I'm sitting in the hot prof's class right now...it's law school, he's foreign with a lovely yet coarse unique accent, 63, athletic, brilliant, and single. Don't know what it is - he's balding a bit, wears offensively bright colored ties at times, drives an older model luxury car, and carries a beat up leather bag. Most friends don't share my sentiment, but he gets the Chili Pepper, hands down.
