Just remembered something I meant to tell you which I think that you, with your view of teachers, might like:
A few years ago now one of the PT teachers (as I still call them, along with Domestic Science, Woodwork etc) was off and I had to cover the second half of a double lesson out on the field. As I got close to the class I saw one boy, fully dressed, picking up litter.
"Hello," I said. "Forgotten your kit?"
"No sir," he replied. "Excused PE." And down he went again to pick up some more litter.
"Why's that, then?" I asked as he stood up.
"Bad back sir," and down he went again.
