THE ADVENTURE of a lifetime awaits an art teacher from Queen Elizabeth’s High School in Gainsborough who is heading off on a jet-setting teaching trip to America.
At the end of this academic year, art teacher Louise Sumner, will be leaving for foreign shores after being accepted onto the renowned Fulbright Program, and will spend the next academic year working in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.
The Fulbright Program is a scheme of competitive, merit-based grants for international educational exchange. In exchange for Louise, QEHS will welcome Nikki Staton – a well qualified art teacher with eight years experience.
“It’s always something I’ve thought about doing,” said Louise. “So I thought ‘why not go for it?’ I feel like I need a new challenge.”
QEHS headteacher Mr Allsop added: “This is a fantastic honour for both Louise and the school. We wish Louise well and look forward to working with Miss Staton next academic year.”
“I am sure the community here at QEHS will welcome the opportunity to work with and learn from Miss Staton.”
