"She enjoyed her life as a teacher in Ga-Metru, gaining new wisdom each day and passing it onto others."
— Narrator, Mystery of Metru Nui
|Purpose||To educate other Matoran|
A Teacher was a Ga-Matoran who worked in a Ga-Metru School and taught classes about various subjects. These subjects included logic, philosophy, elementary translation,[BA3, p. 61] purification of Protodermis, history of Metru Nui, environmental science, properties of Liquid Protodermis and diplomacy, among others.
Classrooms were spacious and comfortable in design and equipped with the latest instructional technologies, as well as models of equipment used in the Protodermis purification process. During their careers, Teachers sought the coveted title of Exemplary Teacher, awarded to a Matoran with particular prowess at teaching and who had a high rate of academic success among their students. As part of their duty, Teachers were also expected to log hours in the Ga-Metru Labs, working alongside Lab Workers to come up with innovative techniques for Protodermis purification.
A Teacher's experience in their field was determined by a rating system called Proto Levels. Nokama had a rating of 9 in both logic and philosophy, which was considered exemplary.
A Student was a Matoran who were enrolled in a Teacher's class and benefited from the information imparted by her. A Teacher's student body was not only made up of other Ga-Matoran, but also of Matoran from other Metru (mainly Ko-Metru or Onu-Metru) who came seeking knowledge or academic training. To ensure privacy, each Student's desk featured a locking system that involved a sliding tile puzzle. Students often had small indoor Protodermis purification systems to use for homework assignments. Vhisola was a Student of Nokama.
