Disclaimer: I don’t own Kuroko no Basuke in any way. This idea came from the various pixiv fanart and fan-comics with Kuroko as a Kindergarten teacher, which was Kuroko’s choice of possible future career in the official Character Bible, so I guess I don’t own this idea either.

“Everyone!” a brunette woman in her mid-twenties exclaimed cheerfully, gaining the attention of those around her. “Today I have some exciting news for you!” There was a chorus of whispers and murmurs around the room, but the woman waited patiently for the noise to placate.
As the room returned to its original silence the brunette, with a grin etched onto her face, continued, “As you all know, Maika-sensei is pregnant and will be leaving us—”
“I don’t want Maika-sensei to leave us!”
Looking towards the young boy who interrupted her, the brunette shot him a stern look. “Kise-kun, it’s rude to speak when someone else is.”
The boy, Kise, looked hurt at the reprimand but quietened down, his blond bangs covering his golden eyes. His body trembled as he tried to fight back the tears, and his teeth clamped down on his lower lip to shut out the incoming sobs.
Feeling a pat on his head, the blond looked up, startled, to see an expressionless young man before him. Kise yelped, jumping back from shock and by extension the teal-haired man’s touch. Pointing an accusing finger at the man, Kise managed to wheeze out the following words, “Who are you?!”
Tilting his head to the side, the man continued to stare at the young boy’s unsteady finger, leading up to a long length of an arm and then to the boy’s tear-streaked face. He seemed amused at the boy’s reaction to his sudden appearance, but his expression showed no change. Once again, he reached up to ruffle Kise’s hair, all the while ignoring the stiffening of the eight year old boy’s body at his touch.
Instead of answering the question directed at him, the man muttered, “Good boys don’t cry,” as he wiped away the blond’s tears. The child flinched at the touch, not even noticing that he had let go of the unshed tears. Kise sniffed, but otherwise managed to hold back another onslaught of tears.
“Kuroko-kun!” the culprit for the blond’s tears yelled. “You’re not supposed to come in yet!”
Turning to the brunette, Kuroko looked at her evenly before replying, “I’m sorry, but I couldn’t do nothing as this boy cried.” Here, the teal-head turned back to Kise to give a small smile. “Besides, he knows he was at fault, right?”
Kise, lost for words as he looked at the stranger—no, Kuroko—could only nod. Patting the boy on the back, Kuroko inclined his head in the woman’s direction. Understanding the meaning behind the action, the blond wiped the remaining tears on his face before bowing towards the brunette. “Sorry, Riko-sensei.”
The brunette, Riko, sighed but otherwise gave a small smile to show her forgiveness.
Noticing that everyone’s attention was directed at Kuroko, Riko cleared her throat and resumed her earlier announcement, “As I was saying, Maika-sensei is leaving us so we’ll be having a new teacher with us from now onwards!”
By this time, the expressionless man had stood up from his kneeling position next to Kise and walked over to stand by Riko’s side. Bowing lowly, he introduced himself. “Hello, my name is Kuroko Tetsuya. I’ll be your teacher until Maika-sensei comes back.”
Another chorus of whispers arose, only to escalate to louder gushes of excitement. Riko could only smile approvingly as the children flitted about Kuroko.
“Please give Kuroko-sensei a warm welcome to Seirin Elementary, everyone!”
