Winner: Sally Lees

I am a Governor of Bournside Academy Cheltenham. I wish to nominate Ms Sally Lees with regard to your Teacher of the Year Award.

Sally is an assistant Head Teacher of the Sixth Form Centre and is the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator for the School (SENCO).

In addition to her teaching duties, Sally has shown a great commitment to controlling and improving the special educational needs, offering within the school.

Nothing is too much trouble for Sally. She works exceptionally long hours without additional financial remuneration. Sally's priority is the children and she has made a major difference to many young lives and continues to do so on a daily basis.

Sally is humble, dedicated and inspirational leader to her team. I believe that this inspiring teacher is worthy of acknowledgement.

Finalist: Jacquie Boyer

Jacquie runs boys brigade in Hesters Way. She works 3 jobs but still does boys brigade 3 nights a week plus trips and raising money each weekend at various events.

The boys have an amazing time and are taught respect and values.

As a single Mum who does not drive Jacquie gives my son experiences I could not.

In a "rough area" she keeps boys of the street and I truly believe that Hesters Way would be a lot worse of if it was not for Jacquie.

She is a gem I am very grateful for.
