When not dressed-up as Christmasaurus, Year 1/2 Teacher Kate Ramsden is busy inspiring children to learn and develop. She is a fan of reading stories every day (something close to my heart) and also having an occasional rant with a colleague over some gin (also close to my heart!). Over all, she oozes positivity which is precisely what The Positive Teacher Feature is all about! Take a bow, Kate! Click to find out more about Kate.
Passionate reader and coffee drinker, Steph Kimble, has been a wonderful supporter of TPTC and we're immensely proud to turn the tables and shed some light on her inspiring practice. Her feature below, is full of gems of wisdom and, quite frankly, her passion is utterly contagious. We salute and thank you wholeheartedly, Steph: our profession is lucky to have teachers like you!

We all need balance, which means different things to different people, but Lucy's journey is nothing short of inspirational and very moving. Her beautifully honest account of how she navigated her career ambition with motherhood will resonate so deeply with many (certainly me!) and we feel privileged to share her story. Thank you Lucy, you are most definitely a very Positive Teacher (and not just because you have a beautiful name)! Click to find out more about Lucy.
We all love a truly positive professional and Oxfordshire deputy head, Kate Bodie, as a 4th generation teacher, appears - quite literally - born to teach! Let's face it, anybody with the role of 'mental health first aider' is bound to meet our seal of approval! However, even a quick look at Kate's inspirational philosophy and wealth of experience below, especially with the more vulnerable of children, indicates what a special individual she must be! The world needs more Kate Bodies! Enjoy! Click to find out more about Kate.
