Points of view

I was interested to read in "Road to wisdom: the spectrum of experience"

(TES, September 30), that, "At five feet tall, the 50-year-old head of English at Darton high, in Barnsley is often mistaken for a primary teacher..."

All my teachers here are over five foot and four of us are 5' 8". Should we think about becoming secondary teachers?
