“I love everything about teaching. I really believe I can make a difference to the lives of young people.

In education, you never stop learning. It allows you to become a better teacher by sharing your own life experiences. If I can give a young person the skills and knowledge to leave college and become a valued member of society then I feel I’ve done the very best I can.”
