Thanks so much for inspiring me with your leadership when I was at TNT. It might not be the usual story as I was a colleague rather than a pupil, but the skills and knowledge I learned about relating to people and supporting them to achieve their best at school are ones that I use every day of my life. Through your guidance I hope I have made a difference to those i have taught since we moved on.
Dear Nigel, I was inspired by you because you believed in me, you never gave up and you seemed to genuinely like teenagers. Let’s be honest, I was a very challenging student and due to reasons too complex to go into here often went out of my way to make life difficult for my teachers. But you saw through that and took time to get to know me. You encouraged my love of speech and drama and often told me that I could accomplish anything I put my mind to. I have always appreciated you.
