Word round the campfire - what they're saying...

"There is no higher calling. Without teachers, society would slide back into primative squalor."

The late Ted Wragg, quoted at his memorial service this month

"It's half-term, there are a million things to do, but what am I doing? Sweet FA."

Anonymous NQT on The TES online staffroom

"For teachers, remaining enthusiastic is everything. That enthusiasm runs downhill, to pupils. It's almost impossible to encourage young people enough."

Guy Ritchie, British film director and well-known husband
