About Jack Sheffield

Jack Sheffield was born in 1945 and grew up in the tough environment of Gipton Estate, in North East Leeds. After a job as a 'pitch boy', repairing roofs, he became a Corona Pop Man before going to St John's College, York, and training to be a teacher. In the late seventies and eighties, he was a headteacher of two schools in North Yorkshire before becoming Senior Lecturer in Primary Education at Bretton Hall near Wakefield. It was at this time that he began to record his many amusing stories of village life portrayed in Teacher, Teacher!, his first novel. Mister Teacher is his second novel and continues the story of life in the fictional village of Ragley-on-the-Forest. His new book, Dear Teacher, will be published in early 2009. Jack Sheffield lives in York and Hampshire. Visit his website at www.jacksheffield.com
