Have you enjoyed teaching at OLHS?
Yes, it’s been fantastic

What is your best memory of OLHS?
That’s a hard one, retiring haha

Have you always wanted to be a teacher?
Yes, being a teacher is extremely rewarding

How long have you been at OLHS?
38 Years in total

What are your plans after leaving?
Drive my motorbike up and down the country

What will you miss most?
I think mainly the colleagues, their characters are great and some of the pupils too. They’re all great

What advice would you give to someone wanting to be a teacher?
Learn some maths. Learn to sing and dance (laughs). Don’t be a maths teacher (haha). Try to see the good in everyone.

Who was your favourite person to work with?
Oh can’t tell you that one

Would you come back if you had the chance?
Only to help out – if there was a need for me

Last words?
It has been very satisfying working here at Our Lady’s High School
