‘Takes the mystique out of being an Amazing Teacher: sensible and achievable steps drawn from a wealth of invaluable experience.’
Paul German, Associate Headteacher, Kennet School.
‘Caroline Bentley-Davies provides a checklist of what outstanding teachers do that I wish I’d seen when I was getting started. The book is practical, uplifting and immensely reassuring. It reminds us that whilst brilliant teachers are awe-inspiring to watch, their skills are essentially learnable. CBD’s book provides a canny mix of advice and opportunities for reflection on the journey towards being an outstanding teacher. The style is eminently calm and practical. ‘
