From the age of eight, Ryan Wilson dreamt of being a teacher. This is the inside story of his time at the chalkface, from fresh-faced trainee with grand ideals to exhausted assistant head battling ever-changing government demands. It is a tribute to the colleagues who befriended him and to the chaotic, brilliant, maddening students who inspired and enraged him. From Sean, the wannabe gangster with a soft heart, to David, the king of innuendo, and terrifyingly clever Amelia. And, above all, it's about the lessons they taught him: how to be patient and resilient, how to live authentically and how to value every day.
'A delightfully frank and funny book -- with a very serious message' Jacqueline Wilson
'Not just funny and constantly surprising -- but touching, poignant and personal too' Jeremy Vine
'A hilarious love letter to teaching - and to teenagers. It throws open the doors to the staff room and our ears to the gossip inside' Christie Watson
'A genuinely joyful book and a celebration of teaching' Geoff Barton, General Secretary of the Association of School & College Leaders
