TEACHING EXPERIENCE AND APPROACH
When people first meet Andy and ask what she does, her answer of “teacher” is often then met with “what do you teach?” – to which Andy always wants to respond with “people” as, for her, this is the most important thing as a teacher. It is not the topic that it is being taught or even the subject that is most important, it is the person that she is teaching it to. Andy focuses on the way that a pupil learns, their interests and their pace of learning.
