Maths teachers have been named the 'most evil' and science teachers the most boring, in a poll by Bliss magazine readers.
Kids also said the most disgusting teacher traits were body odour and nose-picking.
We want to know what the teachers are like at your school.
Are they deathly boring? Or maybe you have a teacher that's really cool?
E-mail and let us know what your teachers are like.

How can maths teachers be horrible? Teachers are only teaching how they were taught and if that means being strict and cruel then blame it on the teacher's teacher!

There are a few really nasty teachers in my school but other than they aren't too bad. I see my maths and science teachers as my least favourite because they teach me my least favourite subjects but that's only natural.
Sarah, 14, Wales
The teachers at my school aren't boring, especially our maths teacher, but they've all changed and become much scarier and putting loads of pressure on us recently because of SATS!

My history teacher is such a freak - he sings and makes weird noises in class. I don't think he realises just how much of a fool he is making out to be. My English and drama teachers are really nice, but my science teachers are horrible.
It's always the younger teachers who are nicer because they can relate to us most. The older teachers are usually grumpy and try to do things like they did in the army!

Our science teacher isn't mean at all! She is really young and always tells us girls about what she bought when she went shopping at the weekend. She's wicked!!!

Some teachers are OK, but some are just plain boring. Last year, my science teacher didn't do anything but talk, and my current technology teacher talks and acts like a robot. He teaches woodwork, and we're not allowed to do anything without asking! But my favourite teacher is my art teacher, who lets us listen to the radio during lessons!
Kelly, 13, Birmingham
We have a few funny teachers but all the others watch are every move and don't let us do any thing exciting and fun.
Johnny, 11, Wilmslow
We had this one French teacher who was ancient! And she didn't teach ANY French - just talked on and on about her cat... worst French GCSE results ever but at least the students got a good rest in her classes!
Alyssa, 13, Oxford
I like all my teachers, I highly respect all of them. If any teacher is horrible/evil they do it for the best interest of you getting a good job.
Jon, 15, Newcastle
Teachers are really weird as they're really cruel and strict in school but out of school they're really nice to you!!
Stephanie, 15, Northants
My PE teachers are fab they are so cool! They are all young and are into the kind of music that we listen to. They are just like all the kids. My PE teacher is the best by far.
Elly, 13, Orpington
I really like my welsh, English and art teachers, though my science teacher is really nice. He's a bit odd, but can take a joke unlike most of the teachers at my school. He seems to think he's Elvis Presley though.
Juliette, 13, Cardiff
Today, we had a supply teacher for history and he was the worst excuse for a teacher I have ever seen! He sent me out of the classroom for...... COUGHING! I've never been so outraged in my life!
Olivia, 13, Birkenhead
Our maths teacher is TRULY EVIL! Coz I'm good at maths I help my friend with her work, but if she catches me talking, she starts SHOUTING!!!
Jess, 13, London
I've got quite a cool fun teacher but now the SATS are getting closer another teacher has come in to help us revise. She's the most evil boring scary teacher in history. She got hold of my friends and shook it around till my friend felt sick and she hit one of the boys around the head with a ruler and when he started crying she just called him a wimp. She's at least 300 years old and I can't wait till SATS are over so I'll hopefully never see her again!
Emily, 11, Middlesbrough
The teachers at my school are OK, but no matter how nice they are, you're never gonna actually like teachers are ya??
Liz, 13, Merseyside
We have a really cool science teacher, he's really funny, even though he is quite old.
Katy, 13, Nottinghamshire
Our teachers are ok, apart from my science teacher who always shows off when his footie team wins. And my old teacher got his legs waxed for charity! Ouch!
Karen, 13, Sutton
My teacher is a dragon - she shouts at you for no reason but there is one teacher who teaches maths - he's so funny!
Simon, 13, Stockton
My maths teacher is funny, she does seal impressions and climbs on tables and filing cabinets. Her greatest ambition was to be a long distance lorry driver.
Rosie, 14, Oxford
The teachers in my school aren't too bad. I had a maths teacher one year whose voice just droned on and on. Physics is particularly boring, but I suppose it's not entirely the teacher's fault for being unable to make the subject interesting.
Lisa, 15, Caerphilly
The thing that I love about attending a secondary school, is that the teachers look at you as a lot more grown up, so you can have a really good conversation with them. All the teachers at my school in Gloucester are really friendly and kind. You don't go one day without doing something fun. I also love maths, and our teacher is really fun and kind!
Amy, 13, Cheltenham
Depends what teacher you have whether they are good, our music, and geography teachers are sooo funny (mainly why I like the lessons) but our French, maths and my tutor are all horrible and boring.
Rachel, 13, Hurtworth
I know this sounds really silly, but most of our teachers are great! And contrary to the survey, science is probably one of the best taught subjects. Yes of course we have the odd evil one but none of them are extremely mean. Except of course when they hand out homework....
Beeta, 13, Surrey
The teachers at my school are mostly boring. There are teachers which try to make their lessons fun but they turn out extremely boring!!!
Priya, 14, Hayes
Maths teachers are ok because the life around you is maths - but I hate my teacher.
Thomas, 12, Leek
Our teachers are alright apart from one who is like 50 years old.
I love maths and I don't think that maths teachers are evil at all.
Abbs, 12, Trowbridge
My friends are so lucky cos they get a German teacher that loves games, never gets angry and very cool, whilst I get a super-strict-always-giving-detention sort of teacher.
Fara, 12, Muscat
I have great teachers!! All of them (even the old ones) have their special way of twisting up a boring old lesson and turning it into the most fun thing ever!! My science teacher is 25 and he's probably the youngest. But they're all fun!! They chat like normal and treat us like normal people, its great!!
Hannan, 13, Newcastle
We once had a substitute, who picked his nose and then wiped his finger under the chair he was sitting on. Nobody has sat on it since, except the other teachers, who of course - don't know!
Jagger, 14, Denmark
I think the teachers at my school are cool in there own way but our science teacher is really cool she's only 10 years older than me
Francesca, 14, Preston
Teachers are horrible - they act different in class than in front of other teachers!!!
Shanelle, 12, East Ham
We have one cool teacher, but that's because he's about 10 years younger than the rest of the staff - who are all old and stuffy!
