And with the launch of our 'Thank you Teacher 2021' messages today, giving you the chance to send the person who has helped or inspired your child a message of thanks for the world to see, we thought we'd dive into the archives and look back at some of our city's teachers over the years.
Here we go back to 2004 and 2005. Do you remember any of them?
