We know that Dumbledore (and McGonagall) were both Transfiguration Professors before becoming Headmaster/Headmistress.

What was Armando Dippet teaching before becoming Headmaster?

Any level of canon acceptable.

    Good question! I can't find any JKR-approved information, and can't think of anywhere to look. Depending on how loose your definition of canon is, this fanfic reckons Potions :D – Luna Dec 13 '15 at 4:35
  • @luna sorry, no fanfics :-) – DVK-on-Ahch-To Dec 13 '15 at 5:29

We don't know.

There isn't any information in the canon books, additional materials, pottermore, films, video games, frog cards or JKR's old website that tells us what he taught at Hogwarts (or even if he taught at Hogwarts) prior to becoming Headmaster.

Unless there are future revelations about him, we'll have to remain clueless on this issue.

  • Would nobody dare tweet JKR? :) – DVK-on-Ahch-To Dec 22 '15 at 23:27

    @DVK - You can if you want to risk her revealing that he was actually a goblin. – Valorum Dec 22 '15 at 23:28

    @DVK - Nowhere in the books does it not say that Prof Dippett isn't a centaur. – Valorum Dec 22 '15 at 23:31

    Are you saying that... Harry Shot First? – DVK-on-Ahch-To Dec 22 '15 at 23:38
