Great Pop Culture Teachers of the '90s

The Internet loves the '90s. Click a few dozen times and you're bound to stumble upon nostalgic pieces about everything from Caboodles to Super Soakers and everything in between. Television in the '90s has found a particularly strong fondness—just ask Buzzfeed. Here, six of the '90s' most memorable high school teachers.

My So-Called Life

Mr. Vic Racine is a substitute creative writing teacher. He inspires the students to think independently and Jordan, especially, is moved by his lessons.


Mr. Hall is the adorably dorky debate teacher. Eventually Cher and Dionne set him up with Miss Geist, another teacher at the high school. The two marry at the end of the movie.

Dawson's Creek

Ms. Tamara Jacobs crossed the line with teenage student Pacey Witter during the first season of Dawson's Creek.

Boy Meets World

Mr. Feeny followed Cory, Topanga and Shawn from middle school through high school and hung around for parts of college. Here's his final lesson to the gang.

Freaks and Geeks

Mr. Rosso was the wacky guidance counselor on cult hit Freaks and Geeks.

Saved by the Bell

Bayside High's principal, Mr. Richard Belding, was a fan of experiential learning, as you'll see in this clip. Belding makes troublemaker Zack Morris principal for the day.
