A lifetime appreciation of the English language
"I'll always be very grateful to my form and English teacher Rachel Nunns. As a third former she took me aside one afternoon and told me I wrote very well.
It made a huge impression on me and led to a lifetime of appreciation for the written language.I studied English lit, journalism and eventually became a communications specialist.It was largely because of her encouragement.
While a teacher she also worked as a poet on her own work and was a great role model on how you could follow your creative passion on the edges of a career as she honed her craft. I've always appreciated that example of a life well lived."
