Why did you choose to become a teacher?

I always wanted to become a teacher, even when I was younger but I was passionate about design so I studied for my degree in fashion design and business with the aim of teaching being something I would move onto later on in life. But during my time on a work placement at university working with students I realised that this was something I wanted to do.

What do you like most about your job?

I like being challenged by students who come up with new ideas that I haven’t tried before, that way I am always learning new skills and developing and exploring.

What is your superpower / superskill?

My super skill is list writing and being organised.
