Scarborough Teacher Wins National Competition
A Scarborough teacher has been selected as a winner in a national competition by construction toy company K’NEX.K’NEX is used in classrooms across the UK to bring to life Science, Engineering, Technology and Maths (STEM) concepts, and the Teachers Build Futures campaign asks pupils to nominate teachers who make learning fun.
Michael Taylor, of Wheatcroft School in Scarborough, was nominated by pupil Danielle Raw. She explained:
"Mr Taylor is very funny and amazing at lots of things especially art. He is helping us get ready for SATS and he makes our work FUN. I know he likes KNEX because he already has two boxes of them which he brought into school so we could enjoy playing with them so he'd love to have more. If Mr Taylor was your teacher you too would be nominating him right now for this award because he truly deserves it!"
Mr Taylor was surprised with news of his K’NEX Teachers Build Futures award during an assembly this week. He was presented with a K’NEX Education kit for his class to enjoy and Danielle was presented with a K’NEX Thrill Rides Double Doom coaster set.
When his award was revealed, Mr Taylor said:
"I was overwhelmed to hear that I had won this award. As a teacher, my ultimate aim is to ensure that all children achieve their full potential in fun and exciting ways and I certainly wouldn't be able to do that without the support of the headteacher, leaders and colleagues at Wheatcroft Primary. The children here are all stars in their own way and you can see the love of learning in each and every one of them."
