About This Quiz

A wizarding school, like every other school, isn't a school without its teachers. They are responsible for molding young minds and ensuring that once their students have left the institution, they can use the tools that they have learned to forge a life for themselves. 

Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is one of the top wizarding institutions in the Harry Potter Universe, and it is also the school that Harry Potter attended. Every year, students must take classes in the hopes of passing and moving on to the next year. These classes are taught by some of the best wizards and witches in the field (and the best in the world.) These academic marvels include: Professor Snape (who teaches potions,) Professor Sprout (who teaches Herbology,) Professor McGonagall (who teaches Transfiguration,) Professor Trelawny (who teaches Divination) and Rubeus Hagrid (who teaches Care of Magical Creatures.)

So which Hogwarts professor matches your personality? Will it be someone who teaches a subject that you would excel in, or will it be someone who you think is a horrible person and by extension, teacher? If you would like to find out who it is, then you should take this quiz!
