Mr. E. was a substitute teacher filling in for Miss Grotke in the episode "The Substitute" when she was sick for a week. His full name is never revealed although it is a rather obvious play on the word "mystery". He has zero fear, he is strict and his teaching style is somewhat harsh. He later is revealed to have a soft side, because T.J.'s project "touched him". Apparently he has had experience teaching in Southeast Asia, Yugoslavia, and The Bronx (New York) prior to his time at Third Street. Mr. E.'s teaching style is a radical change of pace for the class, however the class comes to appreciate him in their own way.


He is a tall, handsome man who wears business type suit consisting of a black suit with a green vest underneath and a white button shirt with a black tie. The Ashleys at one point refer to him as dreamy, implying he is considered attractive especially since they are very particular about fashion and looks.


A strict disciplinarian, he demands obedience and dislikes when people talk back to him. His punishments can be somewhat severe, but deep down he is actually a good person. He is able to see the best aspects of his students and bring them out through his radical teaching, which differs from the standard curriculum. It is also shown that he does care for his students, as he helps Gus stand up to a bully and kindly gives advice to help each of them with their project, earning each of his students' (including at the very end even TJ's) respect. He respects loyalty, evident when he applauds TJ for his project which is a get well card for his teacher Ms Grotke. Considering the implications he was involved with the U.S. military, it explains his strict personality.


  • He also makes a cameo appearance in the first part of "Lawson and his Crew" applauding after Randall and Kurst's dance recital.
