Highlights of the beloved trio

Dear Professor McGonagall,

I would love to know your favorite lesson that you taught our beloved trio throughout the years. I have always been such fan of your teachings. I really wish there were more Professors like you.

Sincerely yours,

Dear Victoria,

By “our beloved trio”, I assume you mean Mr. Potter, Mr. Weasley, and Miss Granger. Miss Granger was skilled at Tranfiguration, and each class with her was a delight. Mister Potter’s attention was, understandably, often elsewhere, but he did acquire tremendous skill in Transfiguration, though he had some difficulty with liquids, as I recall.

I’m afraid my fondest recollections of Mister Potter are of out-of-class interactions. His ability to stand up to a certain toad of a Defense Against the Dark Arts professor – and I use the term loosely – and his defense of his old professor in the face of the Carrows, rather overshadow any of his classroom appearances.

As for Mister Weasley, my clearest recollection of his performance in class was his incomplete transfiguration of a rat into a teacup. The fur and the tail were quite memorable. I was thoroughly gratified when he earned an Exceeds Expectations on his Transfiguration OWLs.
