Teacher Feature

Teacher Feature

This week Miss Jane Brodigan, second in the English department, is in the spotlight in our Teacher Feature. 

What did you do before you came to College?

I was working in Tanzania on teacher training programmes in rural districts.

If you hadn’t become a teacher, what would you have done instead?

My Granny was a teacher; she’d even had her own little school. She was my best friend and inspiration, so there was never any other option - other of course than “that book”!

What is your favourite thing about College life?

The positive energy and friendliness of the people, which I think comes from the fact that here at College, the education fits the child - an unfortunately rare occurrence.

What are you reading at the moment?

Lie: Carol by Patricia Highsmith - it is just wonderful! (I read it last year).

Truth: A novel of historical fiction, the title of which I cannot remember!

Other than your own, what was your favourite subject at school?

Yes, well of course it was English. But after that, I would have to say Geography, and I did develop a late passion for History.

If you could be Prime Minister for the day, what is the first thing that you would do?

Take a deep breath and resort to my rescue remedy: lavender!
