Ms. Janet Barch (voiced by Ashley Albert)
Ms. Barch is a Science teacher at Lawndale High. She is psychotically hostile towards all men, often treating the male students poorly as punishment because of their gender. This is believed to be due to a rather messy and bitter divorce. She is even feared by Mr. DeMartino, and almost everything she says leads to a rant about her husband leaving her after 22 years.
However, Ms. Barch later discovers that Mr. O’Neill is actually sensitive to her plight and lets her vent her feelings, sparking a relationship between the two.
Daria knows exactly what to say to please Ms. Barch, and can manipulate her misandry to get better grades. Ms. Barch appears to like Daria’s more cynical ideas and comments.
