"Looking back at my experience as an NQT I was lucky enough to have a mentor who had such a balance. They had the drive to push and challenge me.  The experience to direct me. The confidence to give me a good ticking off when I wasn't performing. In fact there were days when I even questioned what I was doing as a teacher. There were times when we didn't see eye to eye, but the majority of the days were ones where I felt truly supported."
