"The School Direct programme has allowed me to grow and develop exponentially, both as a teacher and a role model. I have gained practical experience in numerous schools, enabling me to refine my focus and build
a career I will be proud of. Having the opportunity to be mentored by outstanding teachers and
leaders has pushed me to continuously grow and develop my practice in the classroom."
