I think Mary Anne would probably be the best, including or especially with older kids (8th grade or maybe even high school), she would probably get confident enough over time and come to think of those older kids as more interesting. Especially with her love for literature. Kristy is usually only really good with kids that already like the activity but I think she'd be a pretty good P.E. teacher even with reluctant kids. Some of the books said Stacey wasn't good at teaching math.

My initial thought was Mary Anne, but to be a successful teacher, you need to be able to control any rowdy children. MA would be a shoe-in for the nice, approachable side, but I don't think that she has the 'toughness' factor.
Mary Anne can be tough when she needs to be; she's no weak-willed little thing, despite her quiet nature.
One doesn't need to be loud to be tough or firm.
I actually have in my stories where Mary Anne, living in New York City, teaches and is a counselor for many inner-city kids and deals with them very effectively.
I do agree that Kristy would also make an excellent teacher.
