I owe a lot of credit for my writing to my English teachers growing up. I was very lucky to have been taught by English teachers who were not only very good at teaching me the technicalities of writing effectively, but who also encouraged me greatly with my writing endeavours.
I went on to study Primary Education, inspired by my own teachers and my writing idol: John Marsden, who was (and still is) both a teacher and an author.
And now, with children of my own in school, I have even more to be thankful for. They’ve had some fantastic and supportive teachers.
Here’s an infographic on teachers. Some interesting statistics.
