Meet the staff
7 September 2020
Meet the Staff meets Mrs Elson to find out what makes her tick.
Why did you become a teacher?
Ever since I was younger I loved sport. My PE teachers at my high school were my favourite teachers and I aspired to be like them so I could encourage others to develop a love for physical activity.
Is there anything you wish you taught but can't?
No. I love PE 100% haha.
Marmite or Peanut Butter?
What has been the best day of your life (so far)?
Non-school related - my children being born.
School related - becoming head of PE.
Which teacher did you fear the most when you were at school and why?
The Deputy Head Mrs Andrews. She taught me French and I always hid behind my best friend so she couldn’t ask me questions in French.
What was your favourite toy as a child?
A strawberry shortcake doll.
If you could be a fruit which one would you be and why?
A strawberry, purely because they are my favourite fruit.
What’s the best day of the week at Aspire?
Coronation Street or Eastenders?
What is life like on the inside of a ping pong ball?
Anything else you would like to add?
My favourite quote is from the film Ferris Bueller’s day off - “Life moves pretty fast, if you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it”.
