'A frank, funny and long overdue ode to teachers and teaching' ADAM KAY

The malodorous horrors of Sports Day.
Bracing yourself for Parents' Evening.
Refereeing teenage relationship dramas...

From the age of eight, Ryan Wilson dreamed of being a teacher. This is the inside story of his time at the chalkface, from fresh-faced trainee with grand ideals to exhausted assistant head battling ever-changing demands.

It is a tribute, too, to the colleagues who befriended him and to the students who inspired him. Above all, it's about the lessons they taught him: how to be patient and resilient, how to live authentically and how to value every day.

'Hilarious, inspiring and so terrifyingly true' Lucy Kellaway

'Delightfully frank and funny' Jacqueline Wilson

'A hilarious love letter to teaching' Christie Watson

'Funny, sensitive and clever' Victoria Derbyshire
