QotD: Apple For The Teacher

Who was your best (or worst) primary school teacher?

My best was Mrs Simm, who taught me in primary 3. She was a lovely woman, with over 40 years of teaching little Scottish brats under her belt. She knew every teaching trick in the books, but still clearly loved her job.

My worst was her immediate predecessor Mrs Pritchard, who was rubbish and confused "bored, bright kid" with "stupid kid". Strangely enough, I can remember Mrs Simm clearly, and have no memory at all of what Mrs Pritchard looked like.
