Anna Ward is training to be a primary school teacher but just a few days working at High Bank has left her considering her future career options.
Currently studying at university, the 19-year-old is working in the pre-school at High Bank to gain some experience of what it will be like when she starts working at a school.
But even though it’s early days, and she has plenty of time to decide, being at High Bank has given her food for thought.
She explains: “I had only been here a few days and I went home and told my mum that I could easily see myself working here.
“It’s so rewarding and the children in pre-school are at the age where you can really help with their development as they get ready to go to school.
“I am gaining some fantastic experience and I am now certainly going to be leaving my options open once I complete my degree.”
Outside of work, Anna is a big football fan and enjoys watching her brother Tom play cricket for Durham.high bank day nursery, staff profiles
