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, they are almost always also a Cool Teacher, though Hentai series like to subvert this by making them 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.
Anime & Manga
- Machiko Mai from Maicchingu Machiko Sensei is probably the Trope Codifier for anime and manga. Near every single scene in the series is dedicated to her hotness and to try getting her naked.
- 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 spoiling that anymore; because of all the fanservice omake pics floating around, MANY people not familiar with the show only knows her as the lovely-looking teacher. As a bonus, she even gets to be a Badass Teacher when her school is raided by Beastmen...
- 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 to 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 her 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?

- Ayane "Ayanecchi" Tezuka from Rouge Noir is the very rare protagonist example.
- Megane Koichi Azuma from Kimi to Boku

- Highschool of the Dead has Shizuka, the School Nurse, who is also The Ditz and takes Impossibly Low Neckline to a whole new level.
- Subverted by Tadaomi Karasuma and Irina Jelavic from Assassination Classroom. They're both very nice-looking, with Karasuma as quite the Hunk and Irina as a Miss Fanservice, but technically speaking they AREN'T teachers: Karasuma is an agent from the Japanese Ministry of Defense sent to supervise Korosensei, while Irina is a hitwoman who's there to aid the kids in their mission to kill Korosensei. They do take their teaching deals more seriously and get closer to the kids with time, however.

- Hina from Domestic na Kanojo. And HOW.

- In Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Robin Wood, the principal of Sunnydale High in season seven. (Heh heh, his name's wood.)

- 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.

- 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.
