MISS ANGELA GRAY is a teacher with more emotional problems than most of the pupils. Happy to wear her emotions on her sleeve, Miss Gray doesn’t care if her Science class know she’s just gone through a break up, or if her form class know she’s “riddled with cystitis”. Never staying at a single school for more than two terms, Miss Gray allows the pressures of modern teaching to get to her and quits her teaching posts willy nilly and is always threatening to leave Northwood High, but never does. On a permanent diet, Miss Gray cheats on her diets in the same way her husband cheated on her – frequently and with anything available. After the breakdown of her marriage 5 years ago, Miss Gray hasn’t really been the same – jumping from therapist to therapist like she’s on an emotional pub crawl.
