New Teachers Introduced

These are all the new teachers that appear in Book 3 (Wednesday – The Forest of Secrets).

Ms. Greenacre

Former World Zip-Lining Champion.
When on the ground, uses a noncycle.

Has jumped on over 32,000 beds.

Mr. McYawn

Teaches: Really Boring Class
World’s most boring person.
We don’t want to tell you anything more about him here because it will put you to sleep.

Mrs. Ozniak

Teaches: History
She is so knowledgeable that people believe she is actually a time-traveller. Her recollections of historical events are almost first-hand, as if she had been there herself.
There are rumours that she had a cup of tea on top of the pyramid in Giza the day after it was finished, a cup of coffee on the Titanic, and a cup of chock-hotlit (similar to hot chocolate, but better) on the summit of Everest with Hilary and Tensing in 1953.

Ms. Grimstead

Teaches: Library
Former Chief Library Officer of the UNRLEAM (the United Nations Royal Library of Everything & More). For that job she had to memorise the exact locations of 32 billion and 7 books.
Lump on her head. Sometimes throbs.

Mr. Steadyneck

Teaches: Potted-Plant Balancing
Potted-Plant Balancing champion in 1958.
VERY old.
And very nice.

Hammaphore Trees

New Almanac entry
Several Hammaphore trees grow in Moremi Forest adjacent to Swedhump Elementary. Each one is said to be over 500 years old. Every Hammaphore tree has a secret doorway into a passage which connects to all other Hammaphore trees on the planet. This is known as the Hammaphore System. Dash and Rob are the only people who know this. Or so we believe.
