Primary 5 Welcome New Teacher


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?

A. Pizza!

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.
