SALE, CHESHIRE

Tracey is universally loved and admired at her school for her care, compassion and indefatigable
energy. Described by one colleague as “one of the most enthusiastic and committed teachers I have
met”, she originally started at her school as a Teaching Assistant and completely immersed herself
in ensuring that all her learners reach their potential. She is now a qualified teacher and a
transformational Head of English. She works tirelessly, sourcing ideas, redeveloping the curriculum and
creating resources to motivate and enthuse the most reluctant of learners, often surprising the
children themselves with their own successes.
