Read and be inspired with her incredible story!
9 years ago, Rosalind Brotherton was struggling with her finances when her marriage broke down and she is left with her three kids.
She decided to take a job as a dinner lady at Swan Lane First School and studied at the same time for an Open University degree in History.
After her graduation in 2005, she re-joined the school as a trainee teacher.
It took 5 years before Rosalind got her degree but she didn’t stop and still pursued her passion in teaching. And all of her hard work didn’t go to waste because she is now the one and only, head teacher in Flyford Flavell First School.
Rosalind says : ‘It really surprised me because, when I started the journey, I was never career-minded.
‘But I was working in school and I wanted to be able to affect change.
‘The higher I went the more I felt I could make things better for children, sort things out or influence more.
‘I didn’t have a very good education. I didn’t enjoy school.
‘I came from a single-parent family and all this came together and there weren’t many opportunities for me when I left school at 16 with a few CSEs.
‘I think that has helped me to make sure children love learning and enjoy learning.’
Indeed, nothing is impossible if we have our determination to reach our dreams!
