My father rang the other night, to let me know that the man who'd been one my most influential primary school teachers had died at the weekend. He was the man who taught me "never assume", and encouraged my delights in general knowledge and reading.

On a small island like Jersey, people like him have a disproportionate effect on the population. I know I won't be the only person who found themselves thinking back a quarter century or so to their memories of him and his teaching. I guess the UK government's advertising for new teaching staff isn't so far from the truth - you never do forget a good teacher.
