Allie Winters

The High School
Ballynahinch

I am extremely humbled and honoured to be nominated for Teacher of the Year and thankful for the appreciation of our pupils and their families. As a remedial primary school pupil who was also held back a year and then placed in the lowest class in high school I feel I can relate to the struggles faced by pupils when they don't 'get it'. I was able to overcome educational challenges thanks to a few teachers who saw my potential, even when I didn't and they helped me succeed. It made me want to be that teacher for others.  It has always been my aspiration to empower pupils of all capabilities, be they atypical or neurodivergent. I understand their struggles as I had my own. My objective is to help pupils unlock their potential through personal determination, nurture and compassion.

Thanks for submitting!
