As Teaching Shakespeare week continues, we want to know who was your inspiring Teacher and how did they inspire you? #teachingshakespeare
Wherever my heart is ...
Mrs Massey my GCSE and AS English teacher, she made literature come alive and took us on an RSC trip from the North to Stratford!
Dr. Sara Serpell. The most wonderful Shakespeare scholar ever! A S-o-A resident too! would you agree ?
Simon Trinder gave me the courage to apply for Drama School. Got in, now an actor.
Mrs Ingram, took the class to see a midsummer nights dream and Romeo and Juliet, her obvious love of English inspired me to teach
I know, my daughter read Shakespeare in school. I wish, I would have, too. so I missed a lot of years.
YES! she genuinely thinks Hamlet is the greatest thing to ever happen and openly wept when we read the 2nd soliloquy
Chukwudi Iwuji's Henry the V1 gave me the inspiration to start training. Went to Drama school in my 50s. Now acting!
AND, as far as I can remember she has seen 14 different productions of Hamlet
Miss M Homer Beckett (honestly!) was a truly inspiring teacher: she put meaning & passion into the words, brought the texts to life
Guildford and Norwich
was introduced in primary school but wasn't actually inspired by the creative posibilities until 9 years later by
#teachingshakespeare Ms.O'Meara from New Zealand came to a small town in Canada and let me, a girl of 15, read the part of Macbeth
Miss Shirley from year 7. She was the first person to sit me down and go "Look this is Shakespeare" I've loved it even since
My Mom aka Mrs Gates! Reading as my high school lit teacher, and taking me to every production she could find. #teachingshakespeare
