Teaching Star of the Future Award 2017 - Winner Emma Kingswell
Congratulations Emma Kingswell, the well deserved winner of the Teaching Star of the Future Award 2017!
A language teacher at Regents Park Community College, Emma goes above and beyond to deliver engaging and creative lessons to her students.
Emma works hard to keep students interested in languages which has included creating a crime scene investigation on Languages Celebration Morning, a Spanish help board, pen pal letter writing and a trip to Barcelona.
Just one of 5 British teachers chosen to attend an eTwinning conference in Madrid in 2015, Emma's enthusiasm is contagious amongst students and staff with Natalie Reed, Lead Practitioner on the Teaching and Learning Team at Emma's school, stating: "I have had the pleasure of observing Emma teach and was inspired by her creative and innovative approaches -- the students are extremely complimentary about her teaching strategies and this always comes through in any Student Voice survey that I have led this year."
Emma's students are clearly inspired by her teaching:
"Dear Mrs Kingswell, Thank you so much for being such a wonderful teacher over these past two years! I have greatly enjoyed every single lesson and would never have considered taking Spanish at A Level if it wasn't for your enthusiasm in Spanish and in teaching." - Oliver
"Thank you so much for being such an incredible teacher! We are so grateful for the fact that you managed to take on our class so well at a difficult point in the year. Thank you for being such a rewarding teacher and for giving me the confidence I needed to succeed in Spanish" Naiya
