Cure for insomnia

21st September 2001 at 01:00
I have rarely seen a better example of text telling the whole story than on page 5 of your September 7 issue. The top of the page told of an ex-teacher, with his own successful business ("Ex-teacher cleans up in brushes business"). The lower part ("Sleepless in the staffroom") tells us most teachers suffer insomnia because of stress.

I was a head of maths when I set up a health and nutrition business. My income reflects the effort put in; any targets are set by me; and I no longer suffer insomnia. Within a year I expect to give up teaching altogether.

Teachers are intelligent and energetic with many options out of the classroom. To those considering leaving, I can only say come and join us!
