The current teacher of Transfiguration is Professor Minerva McGonagall, the head of Gryffindor house. Professor Albus Dumbledore was Transfiguration's teacher before he got to be the Hogwarts headmaster.

New from J.K. Rowling

"All first-years at Hogwarts must take seven subjects: Transfiguration, Charms, Potions, History of Magic, Defence Against the Dark Arts, Astronomy and Herbology. Flying lessons (on broomsticks) are also compulsory.

At the end of their second year at Hogwarts, students are required to choose a minimum of two more subjects from the following list: Arithmancy, Muggle Studies, Divination, Study of Ancient Runes and Care of Magical Creatures.

Very specialised subjects such as Alchemy are sometimes offered in the final two years, if there is sufficient demand."
