You Never Forget A Good Teacher – And One Of Mine Has Shaped My Life.

You Never Forget A Good Teacher – And One Of Mine Has Shaped My Life.

When I started secondary school my drama teacher immediately recognised my passion for the theatre and acting. During my time there she allowed me to take part in school productions (earlier than I should have done), she opened my young eyes to live theatre, she encouraged me, pushed me and let me hang out in the drama department.  When I was 14 she took us to the National Theatre and I fell in love with the place - a love affair that still continues today. We returned there frequently throughout my school years and I saw some wonderful plays.  Forty years later I still have clear vivid memories of some of those productions.  She even arranged for us to interview some of the actors - no idea how she managed that!...
