Thank a Teacher:

“My teacher has helped me so much through my Forensic Science course this year. She has motivated me to do well and has encouraged our whole class to be the best they can be. I have never had a teacher who has been so determined to help us all achieve our goals. She is also very caring and is always there to help us if we need anything. I always know that if I need help with something in my schoolwork or even my own personal things then I can go to her for guidance. She has made me want to do well and get distinctions in all my coursework. I am extremely grateful for her, and I am excited to finish my course off with her in year 13.”
