Mrs Hoyle

Form One Teacher

BA (Hons) Primary Education with QTS

What led you to be a teacher?

From an early age I had always been drawn to teaching, as both my parents are in the profession. I used to help my mother when I was younger on field trips and supporting examination invigilations and this led me to have an interest in teaching.

What’s the best part of your job?

The best part of my job is knowing that I have made a difference in a child’s education, and supported them to the very best of my ability.

If you weren’t a teacher, what would you be doing now?

If I was not a teacher I would have gone into the medical profession.

What’s your most memorable moment as a teacher?

My most memorable moment has to be when a child with learning difficulties had been struggling for a long time with her writing skills and, after a lot of perseverance from her, my teaching assistant and myself, we finally had a break through. It was like a light bulb being switched on, and it was a wonderful moment for me.

How would you like to be remembered by your pupils?

As a caring, helpful, friendly and supportive teacher who they could come to at any stage throughout their time at school.

What surprises you about Branwood?

The warm and supportive welcome I received from everyone.

What makes you proud of Branwood?

Being part of the Branwood family.

If you had one word to sum up life at Branwood, what would it be?
