“I’m thrilled to support the National Thank a Teacher campaign. As well as being a part-time Maths teacher and a great advocate for all aspects of education, I’m really keen for my fellow teachers across the UK to get the recognition they deserve. Teachers are unsung heroes who do far more than stand up in front of a class. They are mentors who change lives through inspiring the next generation. The National Thank a Teacher campaign is a unique opportunity to say thank you and should be embraced”
