How could Newt Scamander have been a Headmaster at Hogwarts? He is younger than Dumbledore and would have been in his twenties when he was headmaster - which is highly unlikely. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Adumb1881 (talk • contribs) 16:00, 4 July 2009.

Can a Headmaster teach a subject while being Headmaster?
Do we have a blank image or a blank image with a question mark, for people who don't have images so we can use them in galleries?
Albus Dumbledore was a Headmaster of Hogwarts until his death in '96. Many times it has been stated that Minerva McGonagall was his deputy. So why did Snape become a Headmaster after he killed A. Dumbledore ('96) ? It would be logical that if a Headmaster retires, quits, dies, etc - a vice-headmaster (-mistress) (in this case McGonagall) should become a new Headmistress. But S. Snape became a new HM even tho the Death Eaters and You-Know-Who had almost no influence over the school, especially the teachers selecting a new HM at that time.
PLEASE NOTICE: Even tho I have watched the movies multiple times (all recently), I have just started reading the books so I still dont know that much about HP.
