SF&F Av Contest: School Days

First off, thanks for the win, gang! It's my first two-fer in this forum, I think.

So, in honor of Fall and the back-to-school rush, this week's contest is School Days! Avs should feature SciFi & Fantasy characters who are teaching, studying, being students, reading, mentoring, learning, etc. I will also accept school buildings, like the ones featured in Buffy or Harry Potter, for example.

I'll start off with my man Indy (what a shock), doing that part-time Professor gig:

^Huh? I don't see the "education" aspect in that av, although it is very cool on its own.

As if using Jar-Jar last week wasn't bad enough, I'm going to try for negative votes!

It's not an entry, but this thread reminded me of this. Our secretary made this over the summer before classes resumed at our university for her wallpaper (she's an even bigger fan than me).

These are wonderful avs! Of course, the board limits are 140x140 and 70.0 KB. But I'll waive that for the contest, because these are so darn good.

I thought we were using 100k now, since there's actually a sliding scale depending on your rank... I can try to trim if it you'd like.
