Teachers can be quite serious at some point and sometimes it can be interesting to ask them some academically unrelated questions to get their reactions on stuff.

Have you ever had fantasies about a student?

Just like how the society infantilizes the same bodies it sexualizes, teachers can also find themselves at point where they fantasize about some students.
Is there a subject or topic you wish you could teach but couldn’t?
Teachers can also find themselves in a box where they are limited to teaching a specific subject or topic with no room to teach what they want. It’s a good question to find out if a teacher is contented with his/her work. Are they free to teach in the best way they know how?
