A former primary teacher, Diane spent most of her time teaching at a comprehensive school ending her career as an Assistant Head. During this time she has taught children with special needs, older primary children and secondary pupils. Her main subjects were History with some Geography. In retirement her six grandchildren, all under the age of seven, are her delight. This book is written with them in mind, and the extraordinary people that influenced my life. Their story should be told.
