I also remember Mrs Pearce. One English lesson when we were reading the book "To Kill a Mockingbird" the word 'rutting' appeared in the text. I can't remember who, but someone asked her what it meant, prompting a bright red face followed by tears and a hasty exit from the classroom. The problem was that when she returned she had Monty in tow, who went into one of his tirades and gave us all detention.
