“Teachers play such a massive role in our lives and they can be the ones who inspire things decades later. We didn’t bake at home but my Home Economics teacher Mrs Marshall planted that seed in my head – I remember watching her at lunchtimes and being inspired to bake. Thank you Mrs Marshall! I’m thrilled to support the National Thank a Teacher campaign and if you have a fantastic teacher you can send them a free e-card to thank them via the Thank a Teacher website. Thank you to Britain’s Teaching Heroes!”
