We are proud to be able to sponsor the Kent Teacher of the year awards which is being run in conjunction with the KM newspaper.
These awards recognise the work that our great teachers in the county undertake every day and recognise their hard work and commitment.Award categories include primary, secondary, newly qualified teacher, non- teaching members of staff including dinner ladies and caretakers and a volunteer award.
Our chosen category to sponsor was Geography and we firstly had to read through every nomination for all of the categories. That was a lot of reading! We then spent the day with the rest of the judging panel carefully choosing winners for each of the categories.
There were such a range of nominations that were received from parents, pupils and colleagues within the schools. All of the nominations told a story, not just about the work that the teachers did but the impact the teachers are having on the children they are working with. We all have teachers that we remember from our own school days who create a lasting impression on us as individuals. The teachers nominated this year will surely have the same impact. The quotation that says “The best teachers teach from the heart not from the book…” is indeed very true.
The ceremony is on the 14th May which we are looking forward to attending.
