Thanks to contributor Chris Hester, who flagged up an old piece that he wrote possibly for his magazine Adventure Coder. Teacher Trouble was a text adventure game due for release in 1986 by Anthony Collins, author of Nythyhel and various other games.
Although a ZX Spectrum version exists, the C64 version is still at large. Was it even actually ever started as a conversion?
Strident (see comments) suggests that Chris may have picked up details about this game from an Adventure Probe interview with Tony, where it was mentioned that he was to release Teacher Trouble for the C64 when the PAW system came out for the machine.
Unfortunately, Gilsoft only produced a Spectrum and CP/M version of that system – so that is likely why it never surfaced. As a resullt, it could well be a case closed already.

I think Chris probably picked that information up from an Adventure Probe interview with Tony where he mentioned that he planned to release Teacher Trouble for the C64 when the PAW came out for that machine… Sadly, Gilsoft only produced a Spectrum and CP/M edition of that creation system.
It would be possible to port the original Quilled (Amstrad or Spectrum) version of Teacher Trouble across to the C64. but sadly that is not archived anywhere.
Thanks Strident, just added the details into the write up
