As reported by the BBC, hollywood Icon Cate Blanchett homeschooled her daughter whilst dressed up as her favorite teacher.
It wasn’t an offer but a serious demand. “She wouldn’t allow me at all to teach maths or do phonics, unless I dressed up as her teacher and put on her teacher’s voice,” the 52-year old said. “I had an array of stuffed animals who also had to be taught. I wasn’t an offer I made. It was a request she made.”
An appeal to hear a little bit of her in teacher mode is quickly rebuffed. “Mrs Venables Kyrke? No. I was so traumatic for me I’ve actually put my Mrs Venables Kyrke to bed. She was her teacher then. She’s a saint.”
Blanchett shares her greatest take from homeschooling her four children during Lockdown. “One thing that really came home to me was just how incredible teachers are. That is an inherently dramatic situation where you have to stand up in front of a class of 30 often disinterested pupils and try and get the engaged in medieval history.”
