#Friday Fast Five – Mr Cook
Why did you choose a career working with children? My career was in the London Metropolitan Police; after my son Henrick was born and I had retired from the Police, working part-time as a Teaching Assistant in RSM allowed me to also to fulfil my domestic responsibilities.
Your favourite subjects at school? Latin and Ancient Greek
What age do you enjoy teaching the most? My current age!! (61)
Most memorable moment in your teaching career? I have many, but seeing a struggling child succeed tops most things.
My favourite quote: The first to apologise is the bravest, the first to forgive is the strongest and the first to forget is the happiest.
