Confessions and secrets your teacher would never tell you

Monday to Friday, seven hours a day, we are forced into the same building over and over again. No, we’re not talking about the military – although, sometimes that seems like a much easier option. We are, in fact, talking about school.

Sometimes you may have plenty you want to say to your teachers – and sometimes some of us do. However, it’s not only the pupils with an opinion when it comes to education. No, these teachers have plenty on their minds but just can’t let their true emotions slip. That is until now.
