Since leaving Canon Lee in 2013, life has been a little bit of a roller coaster. I left school and joined York College to do a VRQ level 2 in Hairdressing. I’ve got to say, all the hard work at school and college paid off and I left college with merits across the board and I soon found my place at a local hairdressers. Although I was only at the hair dressers a year, it was a year of hard work and laughs that soon came to an end when I had my son, Kayden. I always thought that the certificates that I came out of school and college holding were my greatest achievements but that soon changed when I held my son. I soon found myself married and moved away to be with my husband in the army but it didn’t last long; to say the least, the army life wasn’t for me. It wasn’t long until I moved back home after a year away and then I found the person I’m spending the rest of my life with.
Even though I’m now, 2 years later, in a wheelchair suffering paralysis of the right side of my body, I can honestly say that the certificates I came away with meant a lot, but my family is by far my greatest achievement! And even though I may never have full use of my body again, my boys continue to be the reason I smile.
Thank you so much to @marcrowland73 for such an engaging and thought provoking CPD session on supporting students during lockdown and their eventual return to the classroom. Much appreciated by all colleagues @ValeYorkAcademy.
It is really good to see that some students manage to keep up with the cooking skills. Please send pictures in of your delicious food. House points will be awarded for every entry! pic.twitter.com/1pzm…
