Senoufou BS: Schoolmaster Quotes (98* d) RE: BS: Schoolmaster Quotes 12 Nov 20


Two of my wonderful grammar school teachers went 'above and beyond the call of duty' for me.
Mr Hunt spent an hour after school several times a week to coach me for 'S' Level French (which thanks to him I achieved)
Miss Baillie-Reynolds stepped in when it was found I needed Latin'O' Level in order to be accepted to study French and Linguistics at Edinburgh University. She had only one year to get me through the exam, starting from scratch. (I'd never had a single Latin lesson! Ours was a 'Technical Grammar School') I did it, fortunately.
Having been a teacher myself, I know only too well the utter exhaustion these two must have felt after a day's teaching, yet instead of heading home after the bell, they nobly stayed behind to coach me.
I have never forgotten them.
