Almost everyone will have had a crush on a teacher when they were at school. It’s a natural attraction that occurs when a child is growing into an adult and going through puberty, with the teacher being in an authority position and essentially being a “forbidden” person that they know they can’t have a relationship with. Producers of television shows and movies know this and so will often cast hot and sexy actresses in such roles to play up to the fantasies of their audiences, just like in the cases of these on-screen teachers.
