Celebrating FoHS staff and their teaching!

Let’s celebrate some of our colleagues’ achievements, who have been recognised for their work in learning and teaching.

As educators, we have an influential role in the lives of so many. Everyone remembers that one teacher, lecturer or tutor who sparked a passion in them, bolstered and believed in them or who became a role model.

As a student teacher on a prac, one of my supervisors said ‘Congratulations, you have entered one of the oldest and most noble professions.  Don’t ever forget that you are shaping the future, each day.’ 

It is a great reminder of how important learning and teaching is, and the work we do with students today will affect them and the greater world for years to come.
