Hi. My name is Mrs Scotson and I am the new teacher in primary 5! P5 and I have spent the morning getting to each other, which is not easy with 29 new names to remember! The class wrote anonymous questions they wanted to ask me and I wrote questions for them. This is what the class asked me.
Q. Where are you from?
A. I’m originally from Penicuik, just south of Edinburgh. I have lived in the Highlands for 12 years.
Q. Have you been a teacher before?
A. Yes. When I first moved to the Highlands I taught at Strathpeffer and Tarradale. Last term I was a supply teacher at 6 schools in Inverness (Croy, Ardesier, Cradlehall, Duncan Forbes, Smithton and Balloch).
Q. Do you like Fortnite?
A. I have never played it. Video games are not really my thing. I prefer to be playing outside, although I do like working with computers too.
Q. What is your favourite food?
Q. What is your favourite place to eat?
A. (After much consideration) I think it’s Ziizii’s, although there used to be a pizza place in Edinburgh where you could watch them cooking pizzas in a big stone oven.
There are lots more questions in the tin and the class will have a chance to ask me more questions all week. The class have so far made me feel really welcome and I am looking forward to working with them for the rest of the year.
