favourite teacher in charge

Who is your favourite teacher-in-charge? Time to nominate and vote!

If you haven’t realised it, your teacher-in-charge shoulders many responsibilities for you and your school team.

They ensure you have a bus to send you to and from your games, that you have the right coloured jerseys, that you are attended to medically if you get injured, and most importantly, ensure you balance your studies and your sport.

It is a thankless job at times.

Let’s recognise their efforts, shall we?

We’ve selected the best comments from readers about their favourite teachers and you can read them in the poll next to their names.

If you don’t see your favourite teacher’s name in the poll, please feel free to nominate him or her in the form below.

Have fun!

N.B. If there are errors or you know the full names of the teachers mentioned in the poll, please let us know in the comments section. Thanks.

You have 10 votes and have to use them all at one go.
