I'm afraid I've never heard of some of the teachers in this Book Bub list of "books with teachers who change students' lives", but I was interested to see our very own Nell Wilson in there :D .

Mainly USA-orientated, I guess - the only other one I'd heard of was Dumbledore.

Some of those other books look awful. But glad to see Miss Wilson there even if CS did sit oddly with the rest :)

Personally, I always thought Miss Honey was totally lame... and I wasn't that keen on the adored Miss Stacy either, though I suppose she is supposed to be quite forward thinking in the book.

Maybe we should nominate our own? Though I find 'Teachers who change students' lives' a bit too 21st century a concept for my taste...

Nominating Antonia Forest's Crommie, anyway.

I agree with Mr wotsit from 'Speak' by Laurie Halse Anderson. Excellent book.

I'm rather fond of Miss Beadle from Little House on the Prairie
