Jo D'Arcy was told she had 'too much personality' to teach; maybe that's true or maybe she is, as her students told her, just a 'D'Arcehole.' Come and judge for yourselves as Jo talks through why she left teaching. From 'innapropriate behaviour' to turning up late to lessons to, on on more than one occasion, being 'let go', Jo was not the model teacher. Is that so bad, though? Find out in a lesson you won't have been taught at school.

"D'Arcy has funny bones and a clownish sensibility and could well go places" - Bruce Dessau, Beyond a Joke

"Her energy and likeability go a long way. A formidable performance, in turns affable and silly" - Steve Bennett, Chortle
