Primary Education Consultant Simon Weston went to visit St Matthews CofE Primary School in Bolton to present one of New Directions Manchester’s most experienced teachers with his Temp of the Month award for January 2013. Alan was completely surprised by the award and commented ‘I wasn’t expecting this at all’
St Matthews CofE Primary Schools Business Manager Joan Saunders said "Alan is a fantastic teacher which is evident because the children have not only responded well to Alan's lessons they also view him as a role model, we are extremely pleased with all his hard work so far and look forward to seeing more from him in the coming months."
Simon Weston went into the classroom to observe Alan at work. Simon said “I was amazed by how engrossed the children were by Alan’s teaching, I always knew Alan was a fantastic teacher, but now I have had first-hand experience I completely understand why Alan is so respected by staff and children alike ."
Congratulations to Alan on receiving the award from all at New Directions Manchester Office.
