It was Rachael!

Rachael, a teacher for 30 years had recently been put in charge of teaching Digital Technologies at her school… The move put her in the spotlight as a teacher nearing retirement. She had spent too much time ignoring the younger teachers and the parents laughing behind her back and making jokes about her age and her ability to teach the Digital curriculum. "I have had enough…" she decided. "I'll show them exactly what this 'Old Lady' can do with my 'IT' skills!"
