    I am not surprised you have done something more spectacular. You were not only the best English teacher I had, you were the most influential teacher in my education. I was a lazy student but you made me feel passionate about literature. Bianca Vanderkroft (Lorenzen)

      Hi Bianca
      So lovely to hear from you! Thank you for those too kind comments. Looking back I sometimes think if I returned to teaching I would do it better, but it’s nice to hear that I might have got it right occasionally. I would be thrilled to think I helped someone fall in love with words like I did.
