My Journey

From mind to paper and back again.

Activity 24.8 Write about someone no longer known to you

on February 22, 2009

Ray Entwistle was a jolly man, in fact, if he dressed in a red suit rather than the normal grey ones for school teaching he would be heavily mistaken for Santa Clause. His passion for teaching was greatly outweighed for his passion for helping people, once a feared head of year, he became a very good friend to both me and my mum as we went through a very difficult patch in our mother daughter relationship. He even wrote in my school leavers book that he hoped he had helped me and mum reconcile and get passed our differences, never mentioned the fact that he taught me in his GCSE Geography group, in fact, I was the only person in his group to have gotten anything above a D, and I got an A* so really I was his star pupil. I never saw him after school, I always thought to get in touch and say thank you, for being a good teacher and mentor, a good councillor and helping me get through the most confusing years in my life. I never got to do that, it’s a shame, I don’t think he’s there anymore.
