Life as a trainee teacher

Tracey Leese

Professional Mentor

Current Role: Associate Assistant Head for Basics and ITT

I firmly believe that teaching is the best profession in the world and it is my great pleasure to act as Professional mentor for St Thomas More Catholic Academy. Having held many roles in my 13 year career, including Head of Year and Head of English I truly feel that mentoring draws together all my previous roles and I feel honoured to assist in supporting teachers in the early stage of their career. I love the context afforded by working in Stoke-on-Trent and I see the work done by the SCITT, and us as mentors as absolutely vital in securing the best possible education for the next generation of  the city. We are incredibly proud to be affiliated with St Joseph’s SCITT and are thrilled with the Associate Teachers they employ.
