My passion and interest in Teaching and Learning was acknowledged from day one of my journey at Dunottar. I have been given opportunities to contribute to the development of our T&L provision and staff development and have learnt an enormous amount as a result. Subsequently, I was given the opportunity look after our Newly Qualified teachers and their mentors, and ran a whole school Teaching and Learning project, both of which have been a huge privilege.
Dunottar has such a family feel. There is a real sense of community and the staff will go out of their way to help in any way they can. The staff body carries a breadth of experience and there are so many people to learn from. (As well as laugh with!) The students are an absolute joy and I always look forward to seeing them again after the holidays.
I have been an English teacher at Dunottar School since September 2017 and, alongside full-time teaching, I have been working towards my doctorate in Education. By allowing me to work flexibly, the school has enabled me to pursue my studies at my own pace, rather than cramming my writing in to the odd hour here and there. I have also used some members of the SLT as sounding boards for developing ideas for my thesis.
Working at Dunottar feels like being part of a family: you can share the highs and lows with each other and work collaboratively to achieve your personal goals. Despite the countless tasks they are juggling, staff are always willing to give up their time to help you and actively listen to what you have to say. I can honestly say that I feel immensely supported by the Dunottar team.
During my time at Dunottar I have been able to complete my ECB Level 3 Cricket Coaching Award. Since passing the qualification, I have been an Assistant Coach to the England Physical Disabled team who recently made it through to the World Cup Final, narrowly losing out on a victory. The school has supported me through this, allowing me to work flexibly to support the team.
Ideas are always welcome and encouraged, and I am delighted to have been able to expand the cricket provision at the school, through an exciting partnership with Surrey County Cricket and the installation of a brand new 4-lane cricket net facility.
