Leonora Rustamova: I taught my pupils to enjoy books – and got fired

bpok I regret my career coming crashing down. Jorden rated it it was amazing Sep 23, But when their teacher, Leonora Rustamovabegan to write her own stories, based on them and a fictional account of their lives, they were gripped. It is really obvious from what she writes that Rustamova is a passionate teacher and loved her class of so-called unteachables.

Rustamova has lost more than her job: Pupils at Calder high organised a protest and a campaign against the decision to sack her, her “commie boys” defended her on radio and in the local newspaper, while other teachers also came to her defence. Former teacher Leonora Rustamova was sacked from her job at Calder High School, in Mytholmroyd, because she wrote a short novel called Stop!

Well done her for writing this book. A bit of booj intervention can make a dramatic difference.
