You made me aspire to be and do better than everyone else at school from walking 30 minutes to and from school everyday, to cross country running and school/home work. You applied pressure that was felt before, during and after school and that shaped me into the person I am today.
I fondly remember one morning turning up to school with a cast on my left arm because of an injury. But because of my eagerness to impress you, I folded my arms tightly, crossed my legs and sat up as straight as I could. You rewarded me at the end of assembly, with acknowledging my effort in front of the whole school. It is one of many memories that I will never forget.
So thank you Mrs Ross. You’re amazing and someone I’ll never forget.
