My child's significant other
Teachers are the most important other people in children's lives.
Adele Hamilton, Editor Parent24
Today my son meets his new teacher.

I am holding thumbs there's good chemistry between them, and that the man is organised and firm, but also empathetic and has a sense of humour.

Yep, I expect a lot of this important person in my child's life, because you remember your teachers forever, especially the really good ones and the really bad ones.

Will I ever forget Mr Mac, who kicked the heater across the room in a fit of temper? Scared the pants off me! Or Mr Nel, who used to make me sit in front of him because I was 'causing a disturbance'? He was a spitter, alas.

Who was the most memorable teacher you or your kids had? A saint, or a villian? Email us, and you could win a Parent24 T-shirt.
