Twenty-five years ago, newly qualified primary school teacher Andy Seed moved to a remote village in the Yorkshire Dales with his wife Barbara, anticipating breathtaking views and the simplicity of the countryside. The scenery did not disappoint, but Andy soon discovered that life as a primary school teacher was anything but simple. It was a year in which he 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. All Teachers Great and Small tells how Andy fell in love with teaching and with village life.
Warmly nostalgic, touching and very funny, All Teachers Great and Small transports you to a time that may be gone but has never been forgotten.which means finding someone to look after Tom and Reuben. When two old friends move into the village it looks like the problem has been solved, but it soon transpires that rural life is not for everyone.
