Thank you Mike at A Bit About Britain for your lovely comment. Did you know my hero teacher is Mr. Chips? Perhaps he has been tucked away somewhere in my heart, as he has been beloved to me long before I became a teacher. The fact that you equate me with Mr. Chips makes me very, very happy and deeply grateful.
That’s a lovely tale, Jennie. So many teachers I know have become cynical (maybe they were to start with), but not you – you see the path, don’t you? I reckon you’re a kind of latter-day Mr (or Mrs, of course) Chips!
