Thanks for being such a supportive English teacher back in the 1980s. You were a great support to me in Fourth Form (Year 10) English and helped to inspire me to become an English teacher as well. I was very lucky to have so many great teachers while I was at Northcote. You have also continued to be a mentor and support through my career.
I am writing you this note to let you know that you were the teacher that
most inspired me at school. You demonstrated a real passion for teaching, an
empathy with and respect for your students and you praised me for doing good
work. When I left school I worked as a draughtsman – the subject you taught me.
I developed from there to enjoy an extensive and varied career thanks to you.
