Inspirational Teacher Honoured by Oxford University
Debra Walsh, teacher of French at Brynteg Comprehensive School in Bridgend, has been recognised by the University of Oxford’s annual Inspirational Teachers Awards. She was nominated by Elis Harrington, a first-year student at Jesus College studying French and German.
The Inspirational Teachers Awards scheme recognises the crucial role teachers play in encouraging talented students in their schools or colleges. Each year, current first-year Oxford undergraduates from UK state schools or colleges with a limited history of sending students to Oxford are asked if they would like to nominate an inspirational teacher.
