Inspirational Teachers

The Super Generation is currently compiling a book of stories and 8-10 poems about the impact of inspirational teachers which will be published later this year.

The purpose of the book is to highlight the importance of teachers' work on young people's lives. They trust that it will be a resource for new and experienced teachers and these true stories will celebrate great teachers and appreciative students, provide lots of laughs, recall poignant moments, and prompt memories among readers.

They have gathered wonderful stories from people across a wide spectrum of Irish life but are still seeking more personal accounts of the impact of an outstanding teacher and how teachers have shaped lives and/or careers. The stories can vary in length from 300 to 1500 words.
They are also looking for poems about school days and/or inspirational teachers, which could be published in this book?

If you would like to contribute to this book, please e-mail Lynne at this address asap.
