Which famous person would make a good teacher?

David Tennant as a teacher in Doctor Who

David Tennant pretended to be a teacher in the last series of Doctor Who, but if you could pick, which famous person do you think would make a good teacher, and why?

Would having Jamie Oliver as your teacher make learning home economics easier? Or would English lessons be more fun if JK Rowling was teaching them?

And what is it about your celeb of choice that you think would make them such a good teacher?
