A blast from the past
An unexpected meeting with Mr Gibson, my History teacher from Cornwall School, Dortmund 1984-88 and an opportunity to re-connect with my younger self! I found my old school reports and a workbook from a school trip to West Berlin. Funny to realise that I have always been curious and not afraid to ask questions and challenge the given order. But also interesting to read that many of my teachers thought I was shy ... which I am, but my current 'job' pushes me into a Front of House position which demands a lot of energy... Mr Gibson taught us to "look up" and not accept things on face value. He also inspired in me a love of history and an interest and empathy for our ancestors. Serendipity!
