To mark this year’s World Teachers’ Day, we decided to take a trip back in time to pay homage to some of Preston’s educators from a different generation.
With 1990s students these days likely dropping their own kids off at school of a morning, here’s a chance to indulge in a spot of nostalgia with our collection of archive retro pictures of influential Preston teachers from the ‘90s, all of whom will have undoubtedly shaped the lives of countless budding Prestonians. We all had a favourite teacher – is yours pictured?
Also, be sure not to miss our other recent retro pieces…
