  • Sad but true......

    Sad but true story of how the academics are running the professions. Sadly, they have no idea of what happens at the coal face, and as long as they can justify their existence by their ever increasing 'measurements', more wonderful teachers, nurses and other professionals will be lost to these vocations. Gabbie's story reflects this beautifully. Easy to read.

  • The teachers struggle revealed!

    This book reflects the true struggle that teaching is. It is not a job it is a calling. Gabble Stroud illustrates this beautifully by candidly exploring the magnitude of the role of a primary school teacher, the daily trevails and emotional loads and their effect on children and more importantly on teacher burnout! A very valuable understanding for all politicians.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Teacher

    As a new teacher of mature age this book was a great read that is so close to many colleagues daily life. The struggles are real and ever present. She accurately paints the picture of the mental place of a teacher at all hours of the day. It was humbling to read and also self assuring that whilst I love teaching it has its issues and they are directly effecting the wellbeing of a large profession. Thank you Gabbie for sharing your experiences. I hope all educators read it to keep their and their family's wellbeing in the forefront of all decision making during their career.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Teacher--- an excellent read

    A teacher who had to retire from teaching has written what forced her to think about her profession and what was going wrong in the job. the story makes one laugh, cry, and offer a lot of sympathy because we have all met children like what she had to deal with every day

    Thanks for your feedback!
