Thanks Mr Vanner,

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.
