I enjoyed this story--I could see the teacher and felt as though I were there! Great character study!
I could understand your teacher-I suppose I am in the wrong generation of English schoolchildren to have a teacher exactly like this, but I've had some similar ones. I loved the phrase: "his copy of the Times turned to the crossword"-it is very reminiscent of teachers who speak with Received Pronunciation and have a real passion for their subject.

The only think I would suggest it that you find a way of rephrasing the last line-it is nice, but it could probably be more... conclusive.

Anyway, great story :)
