As a teenager, I received some valuable advice from my Dad, ‘Stay in education as long as you can,’ he said. Well I took his advice quite literally and have never left it! I’ve been a pupil, a student, a teacher and now a deputy head teacher. I love my job and never get bored of it, as no day is ever the same. Children never cease to amaze and inspire me. I feel it is a privilege to be a part of the lives of your children and strive to do my best, as that is what I also ask of them. I’m sure my Dad will also be proud that I listened to some of the advice he gave me as a teenager!
