She declares herself happy with the choices in her life: “I thoroughly enjoy my work, I believe children should be happy in their school environment, that lessons be creative and fun. Children learn in different ways; with this in mind, lessons should be structured so as to meet individual needs and build on individual talents. I encourage my pupils to be the best learners they can be and to take responsibility for their actions and their classroom and school environment. It is always a joy to see young people grow and develop in confidence and independence of thought. Let’s not forget that the children of today are the leaders of tomorrow.”
