Teacher of the Year: Hugh Tabel
A TEACHER who breathes life into his lessons is how one parent described Blanchelande College’s Hugh Tabel.
Nominated by Lynsey Chick for the HSBC-sponsored Teacher of the Year award, Mr Tabel is said to be a passionate science teacher whose enthusiasm inspires students to engage and interact in class.
‘He breathes life into his lessons and genuinely cares about his students,’ she said.
‘During lockdown, my son and I were shielding and our mental health was suffering – Mr Tabel not only supported my son pastorally in addition to running online lessons, but he also supported me both in and outside of school hours, and through the Easter holidays.
‘I’m so grateful for his help and for going beyond his role to support us in our time of need.’
