Synopsis

A memoir of lessons and life in the Yorkshire Dales...



Warm, touching and very funny, All Teacher's Great and Small transports you to a time that may be gone but has never been forgotten. Andy Seed's memoir is sure to charm fans of Jack Sheffield and Gervase Phinn's nostalgic style.



'Heart-warming and hilarious' - Daily Mail



Dear Mr Seed,

I am sorry that are Jack was not at school yesterday. He put on such a groth spurt in the night that nun of his clowthes fitted im next morning so I had to take him to the shops.

Mrs R.



Twenty-five years ago, newly qualified teacher Andy Seed moved to a remote village in the Yorkshire Dales with his wife Barbara, anticipating breath-taking views and the gentle simplicity of the countryside.



The picturesque scenery did not disappoint. But life as a primary school teacher was anything but simple. With a classroom full of colourful characters whose capacity for misunderstanding was exceeded only by their enthusiasm and their ability to leave him incredulous, Andy fell in love with teaching and with village life.



All Teachers Great and Small tells the true story of Andy's first year at Cragthwaite Primary School - how he bravely negotiated the vagaries of the local dialect, made disastrous bids to provide a family home, naively and hilariously tried out new-fangled ideas in a school stuck in a 1950s time warp, and ultimately discovered a little part of England he was proud to call home.



What readers are saying about All Teachers Great and Small:



'I howled with laughter on many occasions reading this book - it's a treasure!'



'Andy Seed brings the Dales to life with his memorable stories about rural school life in the 1980s. I loved this book'



'This book spoke to me on so many levels. It really is a jolly good read, and written with love and enthusiasm'
