Personality[edit | edit source]
In the High School Years series, Mr. Schaft was described by Ms. Robinson as a slob. In one episode of the Christmas Chronicles series, she reveals that his desk is really messy. She then tells her students to come up with ideas to prank him in their journals. Ms. Robinson eventually decides to prank him with gnomes, which Mr. Schaft is terrified of. In Larsson and the Power of One, he is sown to be strict. For example, When Tom and his friends were in a small group room taking a biology test, Mr. Schaft and his students were taking a geometry test in there as well. He was seen scolding another student for refusing to do any work. In the Forever Sophomores series, he is shown to be calmer. In the first episode of said series, he reveals that he’s been working as a Special Ed. Teacher for 30 years. He often argues with the biggest troublemakers in his class, even roasting them on occasion. He, along with Mrs. Collins, have a couple antagonistic roles in the series. They mostly consist of the two giving Tom and co. a bad grade, and them having to try and improve it. They become supporting antagonists in "School Daze 4: Road to the Omniverse", as they give Tom and co. an F in Geometry, and they try whatever they can to improve it. The grade ends up improving, and the gang finishes up a quiz before meeting up with Ben's Team during February Vacation. In the Fairy World War Arc., he and Mrs. Collins not only give Tom and co. a D- in Geometry, but they also assign them large quantities of homework, making them major antagonists of said Story Arc, along with Tord, Vinny, Olivia, Mr. Crocker, and Vicky. He’s been appearing in almost every episode since Season 28. After the Coronavirus hit, he has been teaching his class virtually until his final appearance in "Jim Runs a Tight Ship".
