When I attended school it wasn’t particularly fun or enjoyable. I wanted other children to have a better experience and for them to feel that school was fun and inviting, like visiting Grandma.
The best part of my job is experiencing the growth in confidence and ability of the children as they travel through their learning journey.
I think I might have become a nurse, although I did turn down a job as a flight attendant when air travel was very glamourous.
Being recognised by a pupil I taught twenty five years previously and being enthusiastically introduced to her family as ‘my first teacher’.
As a fun, kind and fair teacher.
The wonderful support from parents and colleagues.
Our children, who are always a delight to educate, and the wonderful feeling of family and sense of belonging.
