And there is special reason to do it as the country celebrated Thank A Teacher Day this week.
Who was your favourite in the classrooms of Hartlepool and East Durham and are they included in our retro feature?
We have scenes from Dyke House, Rift House, St Bega’s, Shotton Hall and Shotton Primary. There’s photos from Stranton and Hutton Henry.
So why not take a look and see if you can recognise someone you know.
