Edna Krabappel, 'The Simpsons' - Top 10 Bad Teachers - TIME:
"Who let this chain-smoking, jaded divorcée teach the fourth grade? Edna Krabappel has good intentions that never quite translate into adequate learning for Bart and his less-than-motivated peers. She lives up to her name as a bitter, loveless loner who lets her personal life fuse into her lesson plans as she shares the cynicism of middle age with the malleable minds of Springfield Elementary School.
