What are the highlights you are planning this year? My highlight will be knowing students are confident, engaged and catered for.
What led you into your chosen career path? I remember at a young age I insisted my mum buy me a whiteboard for my room, I would line up my dollies and teach them maths and spelling.
My first career was as a chartered accountant but I always wished I had become a teacher. After 10 years as an accountant I realised I needed to pursue a career I was truly passionate about. I went back to university and became a teacher, it was one of the best decisions I ever made.
Did you have a favourite teacher or mentor who inspired you? Not a favourite teacher but a favourite quote. “The best teachers teach from the heart, not from the book” – author unknown.
What do you look forward to each day at MBBC? Making a difference.
