They are more than just educators, they are mentors and heroes to their students. Teachers empower students, they instil the values and ethics necessary for our children to be the leaders of tomorrow. Through these awards, we seek to acknowledge the efforts and accomplishments of our teachers at every section of the school.
Hello everybody, my name is Lyanne Fellows. I am a mum to an 8 year old boy and five year old boy and girl twins. Before moving back to the North East I worked in Dubai as a teacher of Art and Graphic Design and acting Head of Department. This was a move prompted by having twins and not wanting to give up my teaching job. Before having my twins I was head of art and a teacher trainer working for 6 years with a cluster of academies in the Midlands. I am now doing cover work in Newcastle upon Tyne and looking out for a position that is right for me to develop and share my vision with. I am really excited for another fun filled year.
