Teachers are the vital life bloods of our school, inspiring, nurturing and motivating their students. Never has this been more evident than during the Covid-19 pandemic, where teachers have risked their own health and wellbeing to ensure that no child was left behind, either face to face or online. Yet teachers do not live at school. They have rich and exciting lives that their students may know nothing about. This book explores the human side to educators, by revealing their experiences and their personal stories; what has made them into the teachers they are today. From the tragic to the exciting, teachers have such amazing stories to share and their passion and commitment shines out from every page. With contributions from a daughter of the teacher who lost her life at Dunblane to the first black head teacher in Inner London, Yvonne Connolly, as well as the amazing Rita Pierson from the US who has inspired so many teachers. By reading their stories we can appreciate how extraordinary their lives and their contributions to education are.
