Why are you leaving Our Lady’s High School?
I have a new job at a new school – St. Modan’s High School in Stirling.
How long have you worked here?
Unfortunately, only a year.
Have you enjoyed working here at OLHS?
Yes! I loved every minute of it. The only problem I have had is that the work gave me wrinkles. I’m too young for that!
What’s your best memory of Our Lady’s High?
That’s a very tricky question actually. If I had to say something, I’d have to say it was the Outward Bound trip I went on with the fifth year pupils. I had a lot of fun.
Did you always want to be a teacher?
Yes, I did. However, I didn’t know what kind of teacher I wanted to be – history or drama. It’s clear what I ended up doing.
What advice would you offer to anyone wanting to be a teacher?
Three main points:
- Buy wrinkle cream.
- Work really hard.
- Bring hand sanitizer – you seem to catch all sorts of things working with kids.
What (or who) will you miss the most?
I’ll obviously miss the pupils. This school has some very funny characters. And of course, I’ll miss my Horrible Histories Club. They were fantastic!
Who was your favourite person to work with?
All of the pupils because I learned so much from them.
What are your plans after leaving?
To chill out completely, have a break and plan for my new school.
Would you come back if you had the chance?
Yes, I would be glad too.
Any last words?
Hasta la vista, baby!
