Thank you to everyone who nominated their favourite teacher for our Star Teacher award!

Congratulations to Sam Topham, who has been chosen as our Star Teacher for Autumn 2021! 

Thank you to everyone who too the time to nominate we really appreciate it. 

We asked Nick, from A Little Bit Wilder Forest School, to anonymously select a winner and here is the winning nomination. 

"Sam is such a brilliant teacher! She has taught Ferdy in baby and pre school classes and when we moved to Swim Academy we were lucky to find a class that worked for us that she also taught! She's patient, fun, completely professional and above all wonderful with all the children. I can see her giving high fives to every child at the end of class and praises them during it. Not only are the children being taught to swim at a very high level they are all treated so kindly by Sam. You can tell she really cares about them and ensuring they have the best lesson possible. As a parent stood on the side watching the interaction that she has with Ferdy I couldn't ask for better teachers for him in Swim Academy." Vicki, mum to Ferdy, who swims with Puddle Ducks at Haddington.

Nick selected this nomination because "this really sums up what I'd would look for in a teacher for my own children. Being good at teaching both baby and pre-school and Swim Academy takes dedication and hard work, this teacher has managed that but still ensures her classes are both fun individualised."

A huge congratulations to Sam from the rest of the team at Puddle Ducks Lincolnshire and Newark, we think this is very well deserved.
