Puddle Ducks Tees Valley Star Teacher – Spring 2020 is…… Melissa!!!
Richard, G Abbott & Co Ltd, selected the winning nomination, from Cameron & Helen Hedley.
Congratulations Melissa and thank you Cameron and Helen - your words mean so much:
"We would like to nominate Melissa for star teacher award. Mel has been amazing with my son Cameron he was very nervous at his first session and I just wanted to grab him out if the pool and take him home, but Mel spent time with him chatting and making him feel safe. Cameron now loves swimming and has grown in so much confidence he’s like a different child, he wants to swim at every opportunity now. If it wasn’t for Mel spending time with him and her constant encouragement and enthusiasm Cameron would have just avoided swimming. It’s such a pleasure to take him to his lessons and see how for he has come."
Melissa will now be a contender for the national Puddle Ducks Star Teacher award – good luck Melissa!!
Melissa teaches at Rose Cottage, Trimdon Grange, Ash Grove Lodge Spa, Eston and Jury's Inn, Middlesbrough
