Meet the staff

13 October 2020

In our final interview for the time being Meet the Staff talks to Miss Stevenson to find out a little more about her.


Why did you become a teacher?

I love Geography and I love teaching students about the world in which they live. Hopefully, one day, all Aspire students will want to venture out of Blackpool and experience new countries, cultures and adventures; it is my job to prepare our students to be citizens of the world and to understand that no matter where people live in the world, we all value the same things and all want a sustainable future for our planet.


Is there anything you wish you taught but can't?

I would love to teach Art!​​​​​​​


Marmite or Peanut Butter?



What has been the best day of your life (so far)?

Every day at Aspire (no sarcasm intended!)


Which teacher did you fear the most when you were at school and why?

We had a deputy head called Mr Picton, he would often take our assemblies in the morning. His assemblies often consisted of lots of shouting, his face would turn a bright red and I'm surprised he never had a heart attack on stage. He scared me to death! Thankfully he never had cause to shout at me.​​​​​​​


What was your favourite toy as a child?

I had a skateboard which I loved. We would build ramps in the street and dare each other to go faster and higher off the ramps. This usually ended in disaster and tears!​​​​​​​


If you could be a fruit which one would you be and why?

A raspberry. A bit sour at first, but small and sweet!​​​​​​​


What’s the best day of the week at Aspire?

Monday - five days till weekend and every day is great!​​​​​​​


Coronation Street or Eastenders?

Coronation Street.


What is life like on the inside of a ping pong ball?



Anything else you would like to add?

Fail to prepare, prepare to fail!

Doing well at school is about how much effort you are willing to put in. Your school days and your examination results will stay with you for LIFE, so work hard now and enjoy the fruits of your labour years down the line.
