We have a WINNER for our Teacher of The Term Autumn 2017 Award!!! HUGE CONGRATULATIONS TO MARIE ZYKE!!!
The winning nomination was chosen by Rhian Jackson from Bloodwise who said....
"Wow, what a difficult job that was! Each and every one of the nominations deserve a mention, I have been really impressed, and it is clear to see that all of your teachers make a big impact on their students and parents, you must be very proud".
"So after a difficult deliberation, The reason I chose this nomination in particular was that I feel it encompasses all the key qualities that were mentioned throughout the nominations, and it is really clear that this teacher goes the extra mile to provide a personal approach to each and every child and parent. This nomination demonstrates how a swimming teacher can mean so much more to a child, and also to the parents, than simply teaching swimming skills and techniques." Rhian has that totally spot on.
Thanks so much to Rhian and to Rachel with Rupert Crossdale who sent in this lovely nomination.
"Marie has something special. She makes an effort to know each child and parent and can tailor each aspect of the class to each child's ability and even mood where necessary. The classes always run to time without feeling rushed and Marie always time for any questions no matter how small. She really knows her stuff and inspires confidence in both parents and babies. Marie's classes are the highlight of our week and have done wonders for the trust between my son and I. She always has a smile and most of all she gets approval from my baby boy which is the highest honour"
