Saotome is the homeroom teacher for class 1-B and is also the physical education teacher. He is often highly energetic and enthusiastic, but due to this he also often makes a scene in front of his students. He is almost never seen without his jersey. Rebecca once teased him about the fact that "it must be great to be a PE teacher and see high school girls in their gym uniforms all the time" trying to imply some other side of Saotome's personality, though this is never confirmed.
