If you want the vague definition: A person whose job is to teach children, teenagers, or adults depending on the type of school.

If you want a more descriptive definition:

There are three types of teachers.

1. An awesome teacher, someone who's funny and is a very kind person deep down. Someone who everyone says is their favorite teacher, and actually cares about their students. This is the rarest kind.

2. A teacher that is in the middle. Someone who is awesome some of the time, but an asshole from hell the rest of the time. This, or a teacher that no one really cares about, who isn't one particular kind.

3. A teacher that is a bitch from hell, even if it's a man. From my knowledge (I'm still in school), this is currently the most common type of teacher. This is a teacher that is normally an old, grumpy bitch who seems to keep her job for the sole purpose of making your life a living hell. This kind of teacher delights in giving students piles of homework because (s)he seems to enjoy it; the kind of teacher that hates everyone. This kind of teacher will get you in trouble just because (s)he doesn't like you.
Some teachers are actually nice, but most are horrible. This is what people who went to school in the past, or were home schooled, don't seem to realize.

Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach.
Mr Garrick only passed one maths paper in his final year exam, so he became a math teacher instead of a mathematician.

Your third parent. Although they boast a degree of education, sadly there are too many that can't even teach, and you wonder what they've been doing for 4-6 years in 'education' college, whatever crappy one it was.
My teacher chronically masturbated for 4 years in a row, non-stop, during college. Now he teaches me.

While telling a sexually charged story, yelling profanities, or sticking waterbottles in you pants have a lookout yell TEACHER!!!!!! when a teacher is near, as not to be beaten with a paddle. FOR BEST effect every one must yell the word AS LOUd and as many times as possible(so you dont look suspicious) and then begin to dance in a robotic fashion
So i stuck a hamster in my ass and heard it scream....

Teachers are people who have chosen the profession of (hopefully) imparting knowledge, creating understanding, assisting in application of the knowledge and understanding, and assisting & motivating kids to attain higher-level thinking skills.
Most of those I know are caring, dedicated and work 11 months a year (yes, during the summer) and 7 days a week, 12 hours a day M-F during the school year.
Of course, as with any profession, you have lame-os and deadbeats.
The pay sucks if you work in one of the "Education? Why Bother?" states, like Arizona.
But, watching kids actually try to learn, take standardized test after test (thank you GWBush) and still maintain a sense of humor and enthusiasm makes it worthwhile.
On the downside: Parents who are less than useless, kids who are totally unmotivated and chose to destroy the learning environment and the administration that supports that (thankfully not all administrators are like that) for fear of Karla's mom getting angry that Karla won't be moving to 8th grade... Yes, in Arizona if the kid fails every class and misses 85 days of school, the parent can override the teachers' recommendations to retain the kid.
Julio wrote a letter that said, "If it weren't for my teachers, I'd think all adults were drug addicts and losers."

Pretty cool! My teachers lined up on the last day of school so we could throw pies in their faces!

I have had some astoundingly good teachers and some abysmally bad teachers.

The contributors for some of these "teachers" entries really should have been paying attention to their teachers, then wouldn't look like such asswipes by their horrid use of language and spelling skills which testify to their dumbfuckery.
