Congratulations to Emily Shipman who won this terms Teacher of the Term competition for Puddle Ducks Oxfordshire.
A big thank you to Suzi and Charlie for your lovely nomination.
"I would like to nominate Emily Shipman as teacher of the term. Not only is she always so friendly and welcoming, but even in a large class she manages to make each child feel special. She recognizes when children need extra attention and tailors exercises really well to make sure everyone can participate. She shows a real interest in how the children are developing, not just in swimming lessons. She has also helped me out personally outside of class with arranging future weekend lessons for my little boy. Even though he is only 9 months old, he clearly is excited to see Emily every week and loves his swimming lessons. My only disappointment is that we won’t be able to carry on doing lessons with Emily due to my return to work."
