Year 5 – Brougham

What is your name? Miss Shortt

What class do you teach? Year 5 (Brougham)

How long have you worked at Yanwath? Since September 2021

What would the children be surprised to find out about you? That I taught in Doha, Qatar for two years.

What makes a ‘good day’ at Yanwath? It all starts with being greeted at the door with a huge smile and an enthusiastic ‘Good Morning’. During the school day, it is always great to see the children at Yanwath excited and engaged in lessons, while striving to be the best they can be. By the end of the day, if the children go home having learnt something valuable to help them progress in their leaning, have stories to tell and are excited for the next day, this makes it an amazing day.

What is the best thing about being a teacher? The best thing about being a teacher is being part of children’s learning journey especially being able to watch students grow, progress and be proud of their accomplishments.

If you could pass any wisdom on to your students, what would you share? Nobody said it would be easy, so don’t give up when it gets hard. If you believe in yourself anything is possible.
