For me I'd like to thank Mr Jones (sadly now deceased), Mr Hill, Mr Zammit and Mrs McVeigh for being my most inspiring teachers. Mr Jones was my primary school headmaster and he was the first person who stretched me in intellectual debate. Mr Hill taught we Humanities and sparked my life-long love of History and Geography. My Zammit was my form tutor from Year 7 to Year 9 – he was a clever man and challenged me to think. Mrs McVeigh taught me A-Level English and inspired in me a love of all the literature that we read, everything from The Tempest by Shakespeare to Thomas Hardy's love poetry.
