School Visits

I’m afraid I don’t visit schools any more. I worked as a teacher in primary schools for nearly forty years and I think that must be enough time for anybody to spend at school. I used to say that if your school was in a wild and rocky place like the one in the photo I’d be happy to visit you, if you’d just pay for the train fare (or boat fare or plane fare).  No one has taken me up on that idea yet, but it’s just about the only kind of visit I’d consider. In any case, my books are more interesting than I am!
