What job or programme of study are you doing at the moment? Tell us a little about it.
I have completed my L2 childcare qualification at Riverside college and have just progressed onto my L3 childcare qualification. I have had work experience a day nurseries and I’m now at a nursery school. I enjoy helping children to grow and develop.
How did you decide on your career path and what is most interesting about your work or course of study?
I have always enjoyed being around children such as my younger brothers and cousins. I like to help support them when learning things and watch them grow in confidence. My mum was a nursery practitioner and I would like to follow in her footsteps. I would also like to become a social worker, once I have gained my knowledge and experience of child development to help children and families.
What is your fondest memory of your time at school?
The support I received from all my teachers, which helped me get the grades I needed to start college. I also enjoyed prom night.
Did you have a favourite or inspirational teacher, or teachers, when you were here? Tell us a little about why they were so important to you.

Miss Beck - is a fantastic maths teacher, she was able to help me to understand and enjoy maths. Mrs Pope - I have had Mrs Pope since year 8 as my science teacher, she is very kind and supportive, made me smile every day. Mrs Eastaugh - always there if I needed someone to talk to, she made sure I was progressing well in my classes. Mrs McDowell - is a fantastic cooking teacher who supported all the way through high school.
