Mr P. Brown
If you asked my 10 year old self what I wanted to be when I was older I would have said a train driver! Nobody would have predicted I would be a teacher. I found that school got in the way of my play time with friends. The advice of one teacher had an impact. I tried and when it resulted in rewards, I was hooked! It became a competition to work my way up to the higher sets. It was only at college that I started to be interested in computers and University seemed to be the obvious next step. After working in web design and completing my MSc, I decided that I wanted a career where I could pass on my passion of computing and new technology. At Accrington Academy I see many young people who remind me of my younger self. I may not be a train driver but I am taking students on a journey through school and helping them reach success.
