Harder than it looks

A former British cabinet minister spends a week as a teacher, and the teacher she replaced has to watch on “reality TV.”

(I’m currently teaching a theater workshop to third and fourth graders, and the single hardest thing so far is maintaining discipline while also engaging the kids and keeping everything fun and informative. Well, that and remembering the names. I’m afraid I’ve more in common with Clare Short than Celine Viner, the replaced teacher, although I symphathise more with the plight of the latter.)
