From Cleaner to Scotland’s Primary Tutor of the Year

A 16-year-old carer who left school with few qualifications and started working life as a cleaner is not someone who fits that teacher mould.

I am Scottish Tuition Service of the Year, yet I was also that 16-year-old school leaver. So, how does that kid become the woman I am today?
