Looking Back

Some of the highs & lows of over 40 years teaching in Switzerland


A memoir by an English teacher who moved overseas to live and teach in a Swiss boarding school, Looking Back tells the candid, evocative story of the trials of living overseas in the 60s & 70s as a fledgling teacher. Written with the help of diaries and letters dating back all those years, the author creates a lucid account of life as she experienced it, detailing her often poignant, sometimes comical, invariably incredible experiences.

From royalty, celebrities and infamous politicians’ children to the children of poor immigrants, the author has taught children from all backgrounds and considers herself privileged to have played even a small part in so many varied lives. She wrote this book to bring pleasure and insight to those who are considering going abroad to teach, as well as hoping to provide entertainment and insight to anyone who has ever been intrigued about what life used to be like in a boarding school in Switzerland.
