Mrs Brough

Can you introduce yourself and tell us what you do at our school?
I'm Mrs Brough and I teach year 2 in Chimps on Fridays.  I'm also the assistant headteacher and SENDCO.  I lead Curriculum for Life Skills  and RE. I encourage and invite parents to come into school. My favourite role is being responsible for everything to do with the church.
What did you study at University?

My degree is in History and Education Studies. I studied at Bishop Grosseteste College in Lincoln. It was a brilliant course because I got to visit the war graves in France and go to the Somme memorial. I was part of a documentary for BBC Radio Lincolnshire when we went to France!


What were your favourite subjects at school?
I've always loved History, especially German history and the world wars. I had a brilliant teacher in secondary school who nurtured my love of history and I was the first pupil to get an A* at GCSE! I also loved English; reading books and talking about them was just fab. I still do that now as I'm part of an online book club.


What did you do before you were a teacher?
When I was a student, I was a waitress! I worked in some very posh places in Lincoln. I once spilled gravy on a bride! Whoops! But I'm very good at making tea and coffee and I can carry lots of plates at once!


What do you like to do out of school?
I am a runner; I run 5K three times per week come rain or shine! I love the outdoors, so lakes, rivers, woods and gardens are all places I like to visit and walk around. I love afternoon tea so I like to find new places to go and enjoy a treat like that. I absolutely love shopping too!
What's your favourite meal?

How I can I choose just one meal? I love food and wish I could be a professional food taster! But if I have to pick just one meal, it has to be macaroni cheese. I'm constantly in search of the best mac n cheese. If you have any recommendations, let me know!


Is there anything you really don't like?

Spiders!!!! I shudder at the very thought.  And sprouts. Terrible Christmas nastiness. And Star Wars. Star Trek is so much better. Oh and rollercoasters. Hate that funny feeling in my tummy. Which is why I don't like landing in a plane either!!

Can you describe yourself in one adjective?
