I wonder if my teachers care

I'm an 11-year-old girl in fifth class in a school in the west of Ireland that really cares about our education.

Last year, when I was in fourth class, my teacher was on maternity leave and while she was out my class had seven substitute teachers and we didn't get through half of the books.

When I started fifth class, last September, my teacher stayed one month and then went on parental leave and came back three months later.
