Secondary school PE teacher

' You have to show your passion for sport so the kids can see it.'

Linda works in a school in Aberdeenshire.

She loves to see the pupils learn and grow, especially as she was encouraged by her own teachers who recognised her passion for sport and talent for teaching when she was still at school.

‘I was heavily involved in sport at lots of different levels, she says.

' My main one was hockey and I became involved as a sports coach through my local club.’

' I really enjoyed coaching the younger children and I had a really good relationship with my PE department at school and they got me thinking I might want to do teaching.'
