Mary Mc Donald

These are my qualifications to date. Lifelong learning is very important to me as things are always changing and it’s important to keep up to date.

It’s also important as a teacher that I challenge myself and step out of my comfort zone just like my students.

If I’m learning something new and it’s challenging it renews and keeps my empathy and sympathy fresh! Like the saying goes – Every day is a school day
