The Patron Saint of Teachers

The TES online forums are a hotbed of debate. Here is just a taste of what users are saying this week. Join the discussion at:

Wordsworth:I nominate Ted Wragg, bless his dear heart!

Bacardibreezer: St Dympna is the patron saint of the mentally ill. Would it be apt to adopt her?

Detterling: St Barnabas would be in with a shout - known to his contemporaries as "the encourager", which strikes me as appropriate.

Triscca: Cassianus. Unfortunately, his martyrdom does not bode well for the rest of us. He was stabbed to death by a group of his pupils using their razor-sharp pens.
