Going to school used to be very challenging for one young Worksop pupil.
Chloe Forshaw, 11, who attends St Augustine’s, Longfellow Drive, has had to overcome a lot of obstacles, but now she goes to school with a smile on her face.
And that is why this week’s Guardian Rose, from House of Flowers in the Priory Shopping Centre, goes to her Year Six school teacher Chris Kelley.
According to her mum Maxine, Mr Kelley has helped Chloe with overcoming her fear of heights, anxieties at lunch times, encouraged her to compete in regional sports events and with building her self-esteem.
“Mr Kelley is an amazing teacher, my daughter has had him as her class teacher for two years now,” Maxine said.
“During the two years within Mr Kelley’s class, she has had to face some tough personal issues and Mr Kelley has always been there for her. He is very understanding and supportive towards Chloe and her personal issues.”
“She loves coming to school and really appreciates all the above and beyond duties he does to support her within her education. He is an outstanding teacher and I am so pleased he has been Chloe’s teacher for the last two years, I couldn’t have wished for anyone better.”
Chloe, who will be going to Outwood Academy Valley after the summer, said: “Mr Kelley is so supportive and he helps me with all my work and problems, he is understanding and I just wanted to say a massive thank you to him for all his support. I couldn’t think of a better way to say it than with a Guardian Rose.”
