Side by Side #9
As we approach Christmas, a time spent with family and friends, Teresa reminds us of the most important gifts we can give our children – love and support. It is with a strong base of love and support that our girls feel secure and safe enough to try new things, be adventurous, make mistakes and reach for new goals. It is with this base of love and support that they experience the wondrous highs and the inevitable lows of life with resilience; with the ability to again step out of their comfort zone, enabling them to be the best they can be.
As a Teacher, Teresa has a strong understanding of the role education and a good school plays in a child’s prospects beyond what is learned in text books – it broadens horizons and develops a love of lifelong learning. When describing what makes a good school, it isn’t grades that Teresa mentions, but the core values of love, acceptance, honesty and respect.
